Top 10 wines in the US press

12th February, 2013 by Andy Young

With Valentine’s Day looming Jon Bonné recommends a “superb” Champagne, while Eric Asimov tastes wines which he says are “precise, graceful and subtly but firmly structured”.

The top 10 wines in the US pressWriting in the New York Times Asimov’s tasting panel takes on red Burgundy from the 2010 vintage. Asimov was happy to be tasting the wine, but did so with a touch of sadness. He wrote: “The wines called forth pleasure, of course, and desire, but also wistful sadness and resignation. The worldwide demand for Burgundy is going up, which means the supply can only go down. Many of the wines we tasted are already hard to find.”

He added: “A vintage like 2010 demonstrates that the quality of the red wines has never been higher or more consistent. I love the vintage.”

Meanwhile in the San Francisco Chronicle Bonné backs Champagne as a drink to share and enjoy with your Valentine. He said: “As much as New Year’s Eve is a time not to go overboard on Champagne, Valentine’s Day certainly is a moment to splurge. Instead of pouring toasts for all and sundry, this is about one special bottle to share for two.”

He added: “These are wines best saved for a special evening and a special person – for which there’s a great window of opportunity coming very soon.”

Find out more about these and other wines recommended in the US press over the last week.
