Top 10 wines in the US press

We round up the top 10 wines featured in the US press last weekend.

Lettie Teague in the Wall Street Journal says sommeliers have “received a great deal of praise in recent years”, as “the avatars of the modern wine world. Except that they’re not. Or at least no more than another, less talked-about group whose power is arguably greater and whose influence is more widely felt: wine retailers.”

Fred Tasker in the Miami Herald looks to Greece for his choices: “Greece today makes delicate whites from an aromatic varieties called malagousia and assyrtiko, and fruity reds from grapes called limnio, mavrotragano and mavroudi.

Bill Zacharkiw from the Montreal Gazette profiles the two Cabernets: Sauvignon and Franc and says: “I have noticed an increased interest in cabernet franc over the past couple of years. In France, which grows by far the most cabernet franc in the world, it is growing, especially in Bordeaux.”
