Top 10 wines in the US press

GigondasNew York Times wine critic Eric Asimov focusses his attention on Gigondas this week, picking three bottles that he promises “go very well with sweaters and the onset of chilly weather”.

As is so often the case, these may be hard to find,” he warns, but they are “among the best” from the region, he says.

“These wines are best served with hearty foods. They will go great with casseroles and meaty stews, braised dishes and lamb shanks, as well as burgers and sausages. They will flatter roast chicken. (Doesn’t every wine?) You may also want to experiment with some savoury-and-sweet combinations, like a tagine made with meat and fruit,” Asimov recommends.
