Tomorrow's tasting is a great exercise in French dynamics. France has pedigree in the esteemed appellations of Côte de Brouilly & Sancerre - and pedigree doesn't equivocate filigree when it comes to Thivin & Riffault, whose collective works embody the antithesis of stodgy.
France also champions the more experimental, natty banks of Roussillon & Muscadet, where clout-less farmers are producing pure, unadulterated wine because they love it and they love the earth and they want to share it. It'd be a bright idea to stop by and taste the intricacies of French wine for yourself.
