Introducing Noble Rot 27, another cordial collection of writing about wine and food, fact and fiction, the quite serious and the not very serious at all.

In this issue:

They present the definitive wine lover’s guide to truffles, with tips from Kermit Lynch, Clare Smyth, Brett Graham and Carlotta Rinaldi 

They meet some of Burgundy’s most exciting new domaines and winemakers, including Charles Lachaux of Arnoux-Lachaux and Domaine Dandelion.

They interview novelist Irvine Welsh, a near-death experience in a Californian swimming pool, and the positive effects of European immigration on British food culture before you-know-what.

They take a post-lockdown tour of Paris’ best restaurants and wine bars, including Septime and Parcelles.

They hear about Diana Henry’s ‘Greatest Ever Meal’ at Moscow’s White Rabbit.

Meanwhile, they offer their usual quota of wide eyed wine and food wonderment, including Fay Maschler on cooking for dull people, Simon Hopkinson’s game bird accompaniments, Jon Bonné on the other side of Bordeaux, plus stories and profiles about Condrieu, pét nat, saltiness in wine, nobs spraying Champagne in nightclubs, the lost art of the savoury, and the obscure world of chicken Kiev Facebook groups, among much more. Someone’s gotta do it.
