I’m almost too trembly to type. This is too much for me. The names, the places, the wine …. Ah, it’s too much!
No, it’s not. I can do this.
Ok, here goes …
Wow, Michael Madrigale. 2012 Sommelier of the Year.
There, I said it.
Wow, Bar Boulud. That means Daniel Boulud. And that means wow.
Ok, that’s ok, I’m used to saying that. Which is in and of itself pretty amazing. That I’m used to saying Paul Draper.
But wait, Paul Draper. Wow!
And now, get this, a 5 liter bottle of 1982 Monte Bello!
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!
What on earth is going on???
I’ll TELL you what’s going on!!!
Our very own Michael Torino and David Amadia are with Paul Draper in New York City right now, and they’re with Michael Madrigale at Bar Boulud, and Michael Madrigale is opening a 5 liter bottle of 1982 Monte Bello!
Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god!
I feel the earth move under my feet.
