Top 10 wines in the US press30th January, 2013 by Andy Young
Eric Asimov picks his favourites from a recent Slovenian wine tasting, while Dave McIntyre finds a wine with a “100% gulpability quotient”.
In looking at wines from Slovenia, Asimov wrote in the New York Times: “Hungarian wines, both sweet and dry, thrill once again. Croatia, too, is beginning to establish a global presence with its dry wines. But perhaps none of the former Communist countries have come quite so far as Slovenia in redeveloping a vibrant wine culture.”
Meanwhile in the Washington Post, McIntyre finds an “insanely priced” French red wine, which he said has: “Dark berry flavours; solid acidity, moderate tannin; reasonable length.”
