Top 10 wines in the UK press

29th April, 2013 by Andy Young

Jane MacQuitty picks out a wine you can “jump into the warm weather with”, while Jancis Robinson MW recommends a “beautifully balanced red”.

UK Press wine recommendationsWriting in the Financial Times, Robinson focuses on the Bordeaux 2012 en primeur campaign, she wrote: “This is very far from a bombastic vintage swaggering about, demonstrating its obvious qualities as 2009 and 2010 did. This is indeed a small, cunning, cowering, timorous vintage made, when truly successful (as it is only in a minority of cases), by the skin of its teeth and with huge effort and cost in the vineyard and cellar.

“As for the panic, there is certainly a distinct air of it about the process of selling these wines, particularly after a dismal 2011 en primeur campaign. In the current economic situation, and with China much less enthusiastic, who will buy them? And, crucially, when?”

In The Times, MacQuitty writes about buying fine wine in a supermarket, adding that “drinking less but drinking better” has been the calling card of her column for years. She added: “At last there are signs that Britain’s drinkers are getting serious about wine and starting to trade up. Wine merchants have been celebrating the double-digit growth in all price bands above £7 a bottle since the new year.”
