Trying to decide between a red or a white wine with this weird weather?

This weather is throwing us wine lovers for a loop, especially those that enjoy both red and white wine. So what's the solution? How can we cope until the weather truly turns to spring? Last month Punxsutawney Phil said that we are looking at more winter. Our wood loving creature may actually be a good start for ideas. How about a full bodied Chardonnay? A Chardonnay from the Mersault region of Burgundy would (wood :) ) be full bodied and give you the heavy mouth feel of oak you are looking for during the cold days but also can be served a little colder. Speaking of about Pinot Noir from the Cote d'Beaune. These Pinots are much more delicate and feminine than those from the Cote d'Nuit so this would be another excellent decision for bridging the gap. Come to Corcoran's class on March 28th and we can have so much fun covering and discussing these neat little nuances of the wine world. Wine Sensations & the Art of Taste
