Tonight’s episode of Cinemavino continues our series on the best films to be completely snubbed by the Oscars. Rounders survived so-so reviews and box office to endure as an all-time cult classic. At the very least, John Malkovich should’ve snagged a nomination for Best Supporting Actor. His work here is scene stealing and tremendous.
To pair with this topic, we’re drinking wines that’ve also never received a fair shake. Chardonnay certainly fits that bill. Most people think of the big California oak and butter bombs, but there are plenty chards from other regions with a completely different flavor profile.
We try one from Washington’s Columbia Valley, and a classic from Burgundy: The chard from Revelry, and the Macon Villages from Louis Jabot, which range from $18 to $25, respectively. Be sure and listen in for our tasting notes!
Next week, tune in for one of the most underrated true crime movies ever made!
