WELCOME TO THE WEBLOG OF A GOOD NOSE.COM
Posted by David Eley on 03-09-2008
I am absolutely delighted to welcome John Stimpfig of Financial Times and Decanter fame to the pages of A Good Nose.Com. As an occasional contributor to our online features and the gradually expanding Wine Spy, he will share informed and direct observations on an assortment of vinous topics. John's Nose debut takes the form of a Champagne feature on the world's most exclusive and prohibitively expensive fizz, Clos d' Ambonnay made by Krug. John clearly likes to do things in style and is starting his professional relationship with A Good Nose at the very top of the bubbly ladder, though this comes as no surprise to me. In his other life, John Stimpfig frequently rubs shoulders with the wine world's most illustrious names, as a partner in the bespoke corporate and wine events company ‘Taste In'. Wine writers and experts including Jancis Robinson MW, Tim Atkin, Andrew Jefford, Robert Joseph and Charles Metcalfe comprise a veritable vinous spiterrati who regularly join forces with John and his business partner Sophie Jump, to share their vast wealth of experience and guzzling knowledge at privately hosted city and provincial functions. Wine-lovers might now cautiously aim at the same spittoon as their favourite wine heroes and heroines while having a splendidly bibulous time. The perfect way to educate your palate, in erudite and hopefully articulate company.
