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.”
