On the Tasting Table this weekend....


2005 Jurancon1, La Magendia de Lapeyre1: A real find recently - La Magendia1 is the Occitan expression for 'the best'. This wine is made from 100% Petit Manseng1 and harvested as late as December in some years, exhibiting a sublime expression of sweet fruity: mangoes, coconut, grapefruit and banana bound by cristal-pure acidity. Magical an an aperitif - 13.50


2008 Sannio Falanghina1, Vesevo, Campania Italy: Some of the finest white wines in the world are now coming out of this part of Italy. It is a wine region not only blessed with perfect hillside vineyard sites and complex volcanic soils but also with indigenous white grapes that can produce wines of real quality. This is one such variety, the others being Greco di Tufo1 and Fiano di Avellino1. This wine has a lovely fresh scented character to the nose and on the palate, positively dances with zesty minerality - 10.50

2007 Chardonnay1, Macon-Peronne1, Jaffelin1: Typical of what is happening in Burgundy1 these days (and the wines are the better for it), Jaffelin is an established Burgundian name rejuvenated by a younger generation of winemakers. The Macon Peronne1 (formerly Macon Fuisse1) is fermented in old oak barrels so as not to overpower the lively lemony fruit but at the same time give it structure and soft hints of vanilla the hallmarks of good white Burgundy - 11.50


2008 Pinot Noir1, Omrah1, Western Australia: Light brick-red in colour, with aromas of ripe strawberries and spice that carries through to the palate, which has subtle soft tannins, medium weight and good length - 10.50

2001 Barolo1, Roggeri1: A really special Barolo from a top class vintage. They say only the best Barolos deliver the characteristic aromoas of tar and roses and this is such a wine. Brick red colour with beguiling aromas of compote red fruits, wild mushrooms and intensely perfumed red roses. It's still a young wine even after nine years but with some air in a decanter, this will evolve beautifully over the course of an evening - 44.50

Happy Valentines Day

This is part of my site The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite places and things, and I hear it was a useful resource for others who were moving to the area. Now Iʼve moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesnʼt get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE arenʼt they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
