Top 10 wines in the US press

4th April, 2013 by Andy Young

The Washington Post‘s Dave McIntyre reviews and recommends wines, which “over-perform for the price and offer tremendous value”, while Bill St John picks a Loire white, which “delivers wide-open flavour”.

US PressMcIntyre picks wines from France, Spain and Bulgaria. The Bulgarian he recommends is called “Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon 2011″, and he adds: “This is the second Bulgarian label I’ve recommended in recent weeks. A trend? If this line is any indication, let’s hope so.”

In the Chicago Tribune, Bill St John features “Loire whites ideal for the table and beyond”. He wrote: “The Loire Valley makes more types of wine than any other winemaking region of France. It produces the tricolour of red, white and rose wines; much sparkling wine; and a raft of wines that range in sweetness from as dry as a mouthful of cotton to as sugary as honey.”

He added: “The Loire pushes the upper geographic limit where wine grapes will grow. But that cool climate also guarantees its wines a pronounced acidity that frames them with both verve and nerve. That is especially true with Loire whites.”

Click through the following pages to find out more about these and other wines recommended in the US press over the last week.
