Dunkirk Movie Review

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

If you don't know Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite directors.  His vision and story tellingability has fascinated me since "memento".  But proceeded from there with the Batman trilogy, inception", Intersteller, the Prestige and Insomnia the sleeper of the group.  I'm not a big fan of war movies but this was something I knew I would enjoy since Nolan had his hands on it.  He wrote the script as well.

Grapes:                                        100% Pinot Grigio

Vinification:      Soft pressing with must fermentation at controlled temperature.
Colour:             Straw yellow in colour with light golden hues.
Bouquet:          Fruity, fresh and elegant.

Taste: Tasty, citrusy, fresh.
A straightforward weekday white for chicken, fish, pastas tossed in olive oil and most appetizers. Tangy notes of citrus, white crunchy fruit, spring flowers and almonds. The palate is fresh with a creamy edge and lively crisp fruits. Solid value, refreshing and simply tasty.

I am here for the WWDC 2017 for Apple and we are visiting Vin Santo restaurante in San Jose Ca. Tuesday was the $1 oysters and 1/2 off wine bottles, so we stopped in for dinner. Here I have my taste of this interesting Pinot Grigio.
