From the people behind the eponymous London restaurant and wine bar comes the magazine that started it all. Having recently celebrated 10 years and over 30 print issues, Noble Rot is arguably still the indie wine magazine.
Featuring another gorgeously illustrated (and spicy red) cover, in this issue the Rotters set out to wrangle the centuries old Romanée-Conti, the ‘impossible wine’ available to the very select few—‘princes, the 0.01% or the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.’ Plus, new styles in wines from Down Under, an interview with Jake Chapman (formerly of the Chapman brothers) and the best and worst of wines onscreen.
But first! Keira Knightly talks, in great detail, of smothering herself with cannoli, almost hate-eating ‘pillowy, fluffy ricotta’, drinking wines from Mount Etna and dying in the embrace of lobster bisque, in possibly the most impassioned account of a family holiday off the coast of Sicily. Oof.
