Today we celebrate a funeral. Nineteen years after his death, Napoleon received a state funeral in Paris. I don’t think we should follow Napoleon’s drinking habits, he added water to his wine.
Burgundy was his wine of choice. In a pinch it would be acceptable to substitute an American Pinot Noir.
- Do I drink Burgundy? Of course, but Bordeaux is more to my liking.
- What does Burgundy pair well with? Game, beef, escargot- this is a versatile wine.
- Where do the best Burgundy’s come from? François Paul’s cellar of course!
