Criterion Wine Tours
I’ve tasted A LOT of wines in 2020. Here are my favourites for the year – and some recommendations for you to try yourself.
In 1996 Bulgaria shifted 4.5 million cases of wine in the UK, yet today it’s less than 10% of that. So what went wrong?
Not all rosé wines are created equal – in colour at least! At one extreme, the palest of pale pink which you could mistake for a white wine, to the other, a deep rich red which would put some light reds in the shade.
2010 was an exceptional year in Bordeaux and the vintage was characterised as ‘classic’ and long-lived, i.e. high in tannin! So after almost 10 years of slow and gradual maturation in storage I decided it was time to try a bottle of Château De la Grave ‘Nectar’. Here’s what I found.
If you love viognier then you need to try this one from legendary producer Chapoutier in the Rhone Valley.
