Top 10 wines in the UK press

3rd March, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Vouvray Sec 2011 Domaine Vincent Careme

1682Rose Murray Brown MW, writing in The Scotsman, recommended a number of Chenin Blancs which she said was one of her “favourite white grapes” which she describes as tasting of “wet wool, damp straw and a hint of honey.”

She said: “One man who really understands the Chenin Blanc grape is winemaker Vincent Careme. He only began his business in 1999 with rented vines; his parents were cereal farmers. He is an interesting example of a new generation of growers in the Loire (he also runs a small negociant business buying in grapes) who looks beyond the confines of his appellation for ideas and influences.”

Of this 2011 Vincent Careme, she said: “With a light honey colour, and nose with flowers, fennel and pear skins, in the mouth this wine has that magic balance between honeyed notes, a waxy texture, lovely racy acidity and dry minerally core – with a lingering length. STAR BUY.”

Price: £17.95, Berry Bros & Rudd
