This past Friday, the top eight faced off in the heart of the beast, the cellar of Château Lafite itself, where they answered a set of quiz questions and dueled over palate prowess. Some might think that a competition in which you'd be asked to name which property—Château de Pez, Ormes de Pez or Haut-Marbuzet—was owned by the Gasqueton family in 1855 (Ormes de Pez, of course ), or to blindly identify a glass of Château Belgrave 2004, might take a bit of the carefree bliss out of wine, but rest assured that the contest was just a capstone on four days of drinking and dining at Latour, Lafite, Montrose, Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Phélan Ségur, Yquem, Guiraud and others. Unfiltered asked David Beall , of the victorious Cambridge University team, for some highlights. "The competition at Château Lafite is really something special," Beall said. "It's so jovial there. There's such an atmosphere of celebration, the Dionysian aspect of enjoying wine. All the teams have to sing a song [at the dinner following the match], there's cheering, it's a really vivacious event." But he added that picking a single highlight was made admirably difficult by the Bordelais. "I've been telling people that the last four or five days have been some of the most amazing of my life." Despite his university allegiance, Beall still makes America proud, in more ways than one: He's a major in the U.S. Army, with two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan under his belt (he studied International Relations at Cambridge). "I'll be the first Master Sommelier on active duty maybe someday, a paratrooper Master Sommelier," Beall joked. Repping the U.S. schools, Wharton, in their third appearance at the finals, placed second, with Yale Law coming in fifth.

Most of all, Provence wines are among the world's better examples of the synergy of wine and food growing up together.
White Wine India Provence is the renowned home of lavender fields, olive tree groves and the occasional disgruntled British writer. We know it through the bouillabaisse of Marseilles and the glitz and glam of St. Tropez and Cannes. It's time to taste it in its wines.
White Wine In India Sunbaked and hardscrabble, the vineyards of Provence embrace dual terroirs — one crystalline, the other limestone — both thin and dry, spread across three departments of southeastern France along the Mediterranean. What the French call "garrigue" and "maquis," scrublands and shrubs made of hardy plants such as rosemary and wild sage, scent the air (and, some suggest, the wines).

As the days lengthen and the sun shines bright, even serious wine drinkers start thinking pink. Rosé, generally made from the juice of red wine grapes macerated for a very short time with the skins to give it color, offers the crisp refreshment of a white wine with the fruitiness of a red. It’s an ideal summer wine and extremely versatile at the table. However, one of the drawbacks to having a serious rosé habit is that much of the wine on the market is mass-produced, industrially farmed, fermented with factory-made yeast, and loaded with sulfites, artificial acidity, and who knows what else? To avoid these not particularly healthful or delicious additions to your bottle of rosé, look for wines that are organically or biodynamically farmed. Many winemakers working this way are cautious about loading their wine up with chemicals. Look for a rosé that is naturally made. Chances are the wine will be more vibrant in your glass ... and give you less of a headache when the sun rises again the next morning. Here are a few I’ll be enjoying this summer.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) SULAUZE COTEAUX D’AIX-EN-PROVENCE ROSÉ ($15.99) This Provençal rosé is pale, salmon colored in the glass, and delicate with citrus and berry notes, racy acidity, and a silken texture—it’s one of the lightest and most delicate and refreshing of the 2012 wines. It is made by a husband-and-wife team who purchased the domaine in 2004 and began systematically converting it to organic viticulture. I’ll be drinking this all summer long.
White Wine India RIMBERT PETIT COCHON BRONZÉ ROSÉ ($11.88) A forward and fruity yet dry rosé from Jean-Marie Rimbert in St-Chinian. It’s primarily cinsault, organically farmed and fermented with native yeast; the wine offers red-berry notes on the nose and juicy cranberry and cherry notes on the palate along with a pleasant hint of Languedoc funk and earth. A great, reasonably priced wine for a barbecue.
