Top 10 wines in the UK press

2012 Saint-Péray, Les Vins de Vienne, Northern Rhône, France

LN_628100_BP_a_4Matthew Jukes side-stepped the typical sparkling rosés and champagne recommendations for Valentines in favour of a white wine from northern Rhône, writing in MoneyWeek.

He said: “This Saint-Péray is dripping with sex and this makes it perfectly suited to the 14th February’s excess of amorous intentions. Aromatically it is irresistibly musky and alluring. The palate is gossamer smooth, showing the Marsanne grape’s curves of stone fruit and sweet spice (in all of the right places). The pliable, sleek chassis flirts with your olfactory receptors and this inevitably causes the pulse to quicken and the temperature to rise. It doesn’t matter with whom you uncork this temptress – it is inevitably going to work its magic. I have trialled this wine, on your behalf, in the safety of my own home and Mrs Jukes reported feeling lightheaded and slightly swoony. I take this to be a positive result.”

Price: £14.99, Waitrose Canary Wharf
