wine.jpgBoston Globe wine correspondent Stephen Meuse muses on former New York Magazine wine writer Alexis Bespaloff and the nostalgia-inducing prices of his era. "Bespaloff lists 20 wines from solid, reputable properties whose 1966, 1967, and 1970 vintages were then available at New York City retailers for between $2.40 and $3.99." Meuse also pines for the less flowery prose of his predecessor's time, when wine was more often described as "well-made" than as "an explosion of passion fruit." [Dishing]
