Top 10 wines in the US press

17th July, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Maison Roche de Bellene, Bourgogne Chardonnay Vieilles Vignes 2011, Burgundy, France

204Two “outstanding, moderately priced” white Burgundies and a Moscato, perfect for al fresco dining, were recommended by Dave McIntyre, writing in the Washington Post this week.

In rating this white Burgundy “exceptional”, McIntyre said: “Good news for wine lovers: basic Burgundy, as in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir labeled “Bourgogne,” is getting better and better. Maison Roche de Bellene is a negociant — producing wines from purchased grapes or blending purchased wines — run by popular winemaker Nicolas Potel and imported by Loosen Bros., the import company of famed German winemaker Ernst Loosen. It is impeccable, rich with tree fruit flavors and moderate oakiness. Consider this a mini-Meursault, and stock up.”

    Better still, you’d better have someone review your copy before titling it “Top 10 wines in the US press” when there are only 9!
