Top 10 wines in the UK press

10th June, 2013 by Andy Young

With summer on the horizon Olly Smith recommends a red with a “wondrous lift of freshness” while Hamish Anderson picks out “an invigorating wine made for sipping outside on a hot day”.

Top 10 wines in the UK pressAlthough he picked a red wine as his “wine of the week”, Olly Smith also featured Champagne in his column in the Mail on Sunday. His “guide to bubbly” asked: “How much do we really know about the big names in Champagne?”

He added: “In general, a top-notch champagne should always deliver a wealth of tiny bubbles that caress rather than prickle your palate.

“The bubbles occur thanks to a second fermentation inside each bottle, and as a result, delicacy should be the order of the day

“For richer styles, go for Blanc de Noirs, made from red grapes; for fresher lighter fizz, stick to Blanc de Blancs, made from only zesty white grapes.”

    dear sir/madam
    being a wine-lover, i need to know the ways and means of getting selected terroir based like bordeaux , bolgheri (toscana) red and white wines while staying at home. since, i stay in kolkata, india ,it is very much difficult for us to get such amazing stuff. but, now i believe with the advent of internet and online e-commerce, the procedure might have been made easier and economical to shop for it without much hassles. kindly let me know if there exists such facility for wine aficionado like us to avail ourselves of.
    looking forward to ur favorable reply,
    with best of my regards and brewing luv,
    sanjoy chakraborty
