The best part of wine is time travel. This is Vienna. The old days. Snow falling outside but inside, a dizzying electricity from mouthfuls of vivid wine that twirl around on the palate as if the wine itself were dancing out of control. And yet for all the charm, this is a wine of gravitas. A wine that speaks of a place. A wine that wants to say, You have never tasted peaches and white pepper and mineraly wet stones like this. Grüner Veltliner is Austria’s great white grape. Knoll is a top producer.
I’m guilty (like just about everyone else I know), of drinking Beaujolais once a year. Right now in November, when stores all over announce Le Beaujolais Est Arrivé! (The Beaujolais Has Arrived!) What has arrived, to be exact, is the exploit Beaujolais Nouveau, a bubble-gummy young wine made immediately after the harvest. But I hate Beaujolais Nouveau. Old-style, traditional Beaujolais from one of the 10 Cru is so much better. Last week, I decided to taste a whole bunch of them.
The leaves are in a death dance. The trees are brittle and bare. The sky is wary. Autumn has fallen around us. But in my glass is a vivid, almost giddy sense of joy, for drinking great Cru Beaujolais leaves you inexplicably happy—like when you were a kid and ate handfuls of cookie dough. Anne Sophie Dubois’ Fleurie called “Clepsydre” (from 70 year old vines) is a beauty—a rush of black raspberries and peaches that have collided with violets, spices and stony minerals.
Ever wondered if #chocolate really is good with #wine? The answer is: generally not. Chocolate is a profound, complex flavor. It tends to make most wine taste hollow. Chocolate makes cabernet taste hard and bitter. There are only a few wines that work with chocolate—Port is one. https://t.co/yYB7LBySRc
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
