Man, I guess it wouldn't hurt for me to actually read through the thread. Sorry, Christian.

No problem. There's probably discussion of port earlier in the thread, but I didn't go back through it either.

I recently tried Lillet for the first time, and I think it might become a new staple. It's a French dessert wine. I actually purchased Lillet as part of my attempt to reproduce the "Vesper" recipe popularized by Ian Fleming in CASINO ROYALE, where it's one of the mixers (and boy, is a "Vesper" a punch in the mouth), but it is wholly delightful on its own. I rarely go for dessert wines--they are too sweet for me--but Lillet is cool and crisp. I'd say it's a perfect summer wine. You just have to watch your intake; though the alcohol percentage is higher than with most other wines, the sweetness masks it.

How come no one ever told me Jay McInerney writes wine books? http://www.slate.com..._the_juice.html
