    Wine of the Week: 2009 Domaine de la Charmoise 'M. de Marionnet' Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

    Wine of the Week: 2010 Domaine du Bagnol Cassis rosé

  • 2010 Domaine du Gros'Noré Bandol rosé

    Since my first taste of Domaine Tempier's rosé years ago, I've been a fan of Bandol rosés. Tempier's prices are getting out of sight, though, and so I was happy to find this less expensive rosé from Alain Pascal. (He began making wine only in 1997; before...

    The Review: Cleo at the Redbury Hotel
    This, after all, being Hollywood, if SBE's Sam Nazarian is going to name a restaurant for the queen of Egypt, it's obligatory to vamp it up a little. Set in the crimson Redbury Hotel, a stone's throw from Hollywood and Vine, Cleo references the alluring...
