A Warm Thought on a Cold Day

Côte-Rôtie was my darling.  Drinking it, I fancied I could see that literally roasting but miraculously green hillside, popping with goodness, like the skin of a roasting duck, while little wine-colored devils chased the nymphs long its simmering rivulets of wine.” – A.J. Liebling, Between Meals: An Appetite for Paris.
