Top 10 wines in the US press

Domaine de la Becassonne Blanc 2012

Domaine de la Becassonne Blanc 2012In the Washington Post, Dave McIntyre picked out wines for his readers “that are good enough to grab your attention.”

In recommending this wine he wrote: “White wines from Côtes du Rhone can be hard to like: They tend to be austere, as if the region really has its heart in reds. Becassonne, from the noted winemaker Andre Brunel, is an exception. This blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Clairette is ripe and unctuous with nectarine, apricot and jasmine flavours. Savour it by itself or with seafood, poultry or cheese. Bravo! 13%.
