Chinese-New-Year-2015-28-Cool-Wallpapers-HD-1024x1024A short week always means an intense one, and we hit the ground running with Julia Punj’s review of Le Volte 2012. Leave it to an Aspen girl to know a thing or two about wines to keep you warm in winter. We closed the week by looking forward to spring with David Bertot’s picks; these bottles make you forget that the vernal equinox is still almost four weeks away! In between, we enjoyed Crystal Edgar’s expert guidance in pairing wine with emblematic Chinese dishes. It’s the year of the sheep/goat/ram (depending on your point of origin), and it’s time to celebrate!

Crystal let the cold weather be her guide in selecting a pair of Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines; they’re ideal for warming you from the inside. Like Crystal, Francesco Vigorito selected two wines from a single producer, showing the past and the present of Burgundy great Louis Jadot. And Will Di Nunzio is looking for a little immediate gratification, so he chose two 2009 Brunello di Montalcino; these bottles are delicious right now–no waiting necessary!

We hope you and yours are keeping warm, drinking deliciously and enjoying life–wherever you may be!
