Noble Rot Issue 28 - Cosmic Chardonnay
Noble Rot is a new collection of writing about wine, food and culture.
In this issue Noble Rot interview intergalactically acclaimed physicist Professor Brian Cox and punk-poet laureate John Cooper Clarke. Cox blows their tiny minds moving effortlessly between explaining that black holes are made of curved space and time and his passion for Chardonnay, while the ‘Good Doctor’ Cooper Clarke whisks Noble Rot’s Suzanne Moore away on an epic extended lunch.
They travel to northwest Italy to meet some of Piedmont’s most exciting new winemakers, and profile Gattinara in Alto Piemonte. They reprise Rotters’ ‘New Food and Wine Dictionary’ from Noble Rot 14 with fresh contributions from Brian Eno, Angela Hartnett and Ed Ballset al. They also discover which birth year wines have been highs and lows for NBA legend Dwyane Wade, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, among others, and hear about Fay Maschler’s ‘Greatest Meal’ in Greece.
