Recap: The Punch Down Episode 4 with guest: Jancis Robinson!

We had a blast on The Punch Down today! Jancis Robinson joined us and she is just fabulous – not only erudite and eloquent, but also great fun!

Jancis has been a Master of Wine since 1984, is the author of countless books on wine, is an award-winning TV presenter and is wine columnist for the Financial Times, among many other accolades!

If you missed it, open a bottle of wine and get comfy to enjoy an hour of fun wine chat.

The wines we sipped during today’s show were:

Joe: Clos de Mez Morgon, Beaujolais, France 2009 (imported by his friend Lyle Fass)

Moi: Cellars Nikiforou Moschofilero, the Peloponnese, Greece 2009 (a blend of Moschofilero & Roditis)

Jancis: An interesting white from Moravia in the Czech Republic with obscure grapes
