Top 10 wines in the UK press

Jane MacQuitty recommends a “great summer red” while Victoria Moore picks out an Australian wine, which she calls “absolutely superb stuff”.

Top 10 wines in the UK pressWriting in The Times, MacQuitty’s recommendation comes from Marsannay, which she writes is “almost the first Burgundy village you come to south of Dijon”, adding that the village “is renowned for its fruit-forward, early-drinking reds and even a rosé.”

MacQuitty went on to write that “the new Burgundy era has brought with it some carefully crafted reds that have more staying power than their predecessors. Initially, I was not a big fan of the 2010 Burgundy vintage, but its wines have put on weight with time.”

In the Daily Telegraph, Moore writes that while Australian Shiraz and Chardonnay are talked about a lot, in her view “the Australians’ real gift to the world of wine is the Cab-Shiraz blend.”

She added: “I would like to hear a lot more shouting about this great and wonderful red. It’s a very unclassical idea, to mix the great red grape of the northern Rhône with that of Bordeaux (though admittedly you will find Syrah and Cabernet in the same bottle in the appellation of Cabardes in the Languedoc, where grapes from the Mediterranean meet those from the Atlantic). But in Australia it just works so gorgeously well.”
