Nothing rocks this planet better than a nice red meat sauce. Mmm, meat sauce.

I fashion myself an amateur saucier, and have recently discovered the best wine to use in an italian tomato sauce.

I don't know the best wine to put *in* the sauce, but I do most certainly enjoy a Bernard-Massard '02 Pinot Gris from Luxembourg to go with a good white sauce made with tons of cheese.

The rule is that you're supposed to drink the wine you used in the sauce with the meal.

This of course presumes you never ever ever use cooking wine.

Are you going to keep us in suspense?

BTW, if I'm paying $20+for the bottle, it's going into the glass - not the pot.

ARRR here's to his Noodleness may he grant me sea legs quickly

Ok, don't tell anyone, but it's a Malbec. I prefer the Argentines from Mendoza more than the Californian.

I love this. And I can relate.

Okay, this is news I can use. I'm very likely going to Luxembourg the first week in January. Is your love of this wine the product of a visit?

California reds are horribly bitter anyway. I don't know why anybody would ever think those are tasty, they make my tongue want to commit suicide.
