A wine list should be read as a novel.
If you hold it in your hands more than two pages, it means the sommelier’s plot reached you.
This list will take you away and make you dream of remote discoveries such as unknown designations, prestigious domains, vintage wines of beloved ones and maybe also those that existed before you were born.
