Top 10 wines in the US press

2013 Domaine des Muses Petite Arvine Tradition, Switzerland

DDM WW Petite Arvine TraditionWill Lyons, writing in the Wall Street Journal, delved into Switzerland, whose wines he said are “relatively unknown” compared to its European neighbours. This, he explains, is largely due to the fact that so little of its wines are exported, with natives preferring to keep the vast majority for themselves.

My first discovery: Swiss wines don’t come cheap”, said Lyons. “Forget about your entry-level Chardonnays or mass-produced Pinot Noir. Like its watches, Switzerland’s wines are priced at a premium.”

Of this example, made from the Petite Arvine grape, Lyon said: “This is one of those wines that’s difficult to stop sipping. Gently aromatic, its standout qualities are its fleshy texture, crisp acidity and dry, saline finish. Can be enjoyed with or without food.”

Price: €40 or $45
