Top 10 wines in the UK press

Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, France 2012

domaine-alain-graillot-crozes-hermitage-blanc-2011While France’s Rhône Valley might be better known for its red wines, David Williams was keen to highlight the region’s whites writing in The Guardian this week.

He said: “A mere six of the 100 Olympic swimming pools-worth of wine the local producers’ association says is made in the region each year is white and vanishingly few vignerons specialise in white alone. Some only use white wine grapes to add a lift to their reds. The best Rhône whites, particularly in the northern part of the valley, are far more than a sideshow, however, as top syrah producer Alain Graillot’s graceful but rich, orchard-fruited and floral-fragrant blanc blend amply shows.”

Price: £21, Yapp Bros

    You sure he wasn’t recommending “this Marsanne”?!
