Top 10 wines in the US press

Bill St John recommends a French red blend that is “overwhelmingly captivating”, while Dave McIntyre picks a “lush and dense” Spanish wine.

US PressWriting in the Chicago Tribune, St John investigates France’s Languedoc-Roussillon winemaking region. He said: “During the past 30 years, no winemaking area of France has transformed itself as much as Languedoc, the fertile crescent of vineyards stretching along a third of the country’s western Mediterranean coastline.”

He added: “No one thought highly of the wines; they were that felicitous but sorry combination of cheap and rough. In the 1980s, however, imaginative winemakers from inside and outside Languedoc took stock of the native promise of Languedoc – older vines, copious sunshine and a nourishing climate – and forever changed winemaking there.

“Today, Languedoc’s wines are polished versions of what they were always: wines with a lot of flavour for not a lot of money.”

In the Washington Post McIntyre recommends to his readers that they “splurge on a wonderful California Chardonnay”.
