Top 10 wines in the US press

16th October, 2012 by Andy Young

Wines ranging from Italy to Oregon have come under scrutiny this week, as has an American version of Petit Manseng – a grape rarely found outside of France.

Top 10 wines mentioned in the US pressThis week Eric Asimov, writing in the New York Times, featured some of his favourite Italian wines, and it is clear he has a soft spot for the country. He wrote: “Like Italian food, Italian red wine has an innate, almost elemental appeal.

“Regardless of where in Italy it comes from, good Italian red wine speaks directly to the soul, and the gut, of place and people and food and love. And that’s just the beginning; great wines embrace the head as well.”

Meanwhile in the San Francisco Chronicle Jon Bonné stayed a little closer to home as he looked at wines from Oregon. He obviously liked what he found, as he wrote, “with the 2010 vintage, there’s solid evidence that Oregon has finally found a permanent footing. The wines aren’t simply excellent; they show a concentration and depth that rise from being simply pleasurable to being profound.”

Look through these pages to find out specifically which wines the writers have mentioned from these areas, and a selection of other wines mentioned in the US press over the last seven days.
