Great Grandpa Jack is a living, breathing history book. We know many of his stories quite well because he tends to repeat them but they’re no less fascinating the fourth and fifth time around. He will, however, uncork a doozie that leaves everyone listening gobsmacked. A few Thanksgivings ago I poured Jack this delicious Côtes du Rhône from La Ferme Du Mont. It must have been the blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre that tickled his memory with its harmonious blend of fruit, spice, and tannin that unearthed this gem: “Towards the end of my tour in France during WW2, I was on leave for a bit of R&R and found myself in Avignon. While sitting outside a little cafe, nursing my third glass of red, a mime startlingly appeared out of nowhere. I was ready to high-tail it outta there when a classically trained French clown showed, attempting to steal the spotlight. Next thing you know, a street performer battle was in full swing as these two fantastically weird and distinct artists started playing off one another as if they’d been together since the dawn of time. What initially seemed like a match made in the fires of hell, emerged into a thing of beauty.” Not unlike PB & J. Or G,S, & M.
