‘A Mature Pinkish-Hued Beauty’: Jay McInerney’s WSJ Wine Column Debuts

Jay McInerney’s Wall Street Journal  wine column has made its debut! What does the author (“one of the country’s best-known contemporary fiction writers” and “one of the freshest voices in the wine-writing field”) have to say about 1990 Dom Pérignon Oenoteque Rosé?

It really is spectacular, one of the greatest rosés I’ve ever tasted, richer and more voluptuous than the 2000. Among many pleasant sensations it evoked, I thought of Julianne Moore, a mature pinkish-hued beauty whom I’d seen on the street in the West Village earlier that day–but this is the kind of wine that can call forth a thousand associations.

Julianne Moore is presumably delighted.
