Added Aug 29, 2012 at 4:37amA small Alsatian family producer working biodynamically. Bit of roundness, touch of sweetness, light green freshness and a decent amount of peachy fruit. Try this with a local Alsatian onion tart and cold cuts.

Added Aug 22, 2012 at 2:31amOk I know it’s expensive, but so far the wines of de la Vougeraie have always knocked me senseless in a blind tasting. They make my knees weak. I’m not alone - Pierre Vincent got named Winemaker of the Year in 2010. 2007 is a good year to drink early, the silky red fruit is generous while it is still dominated by minerality, acid structure and finesse. There is something about Vougeraie’s wines that transcends tasting notes - they make me think of being in love and of beautiful, silk evening gowns. Their gamay-based En Bollery Terres d’en Face is lower in price when available and still quite interesting.

Added Aug 22, 2012 at 2:33amA food friendly price bracket (I paid USD 10,50 including tax), and an organic wine at that! Spicy, full of liquorish, herbs, spice and black cherries. Fresh acidity makes this work well with pasta, a creamy tomato sauce and lots of parmesan. Buy a bunch of bottles and spice up a weekday meal or invite plenty of friends for a relaxed dinner “famiglia-style.”

Added Aug 22, 2012 at 2:28amMule is the McLaren Vale wines of Yarra-based Innocent Bystander. An excellent representative of what makes the small winemaker movement in Australia so exciting. Full nose with plenty of black fruit and wet tobacco. Meaty and warmly inviting. Tannins smooth as a baby’s bottom and a light freshness to balance the developing fruit. Easy to enjoy alone or with a nice rack of lamb on the Barbie.

Added Aug 22, 2012 at 2:30amThe first truly enjoyable Barbera I ever had, and it has kept the leading position. It’s pleasantly complex, with wonderful but elegantly restrained fruit. Most of all it was the structure that I fell for. A great wine at this price, ready to drink. At the dinner at Haut Les Vins I unknowingly spent the evening seated next to the producer, Sandro Barosi. Let me just tell you he is as lovely, dynamic and enchanting as the wine!

Added Aug 22, 2012 at 2:29amA ripe, pleasant wine with plenty of intensive dark fruit from the syrah and grenache. Touches of liquorish and garrigue (herbal greens). A wine which is easy to like and which should grow in the glass over an evening. The couple making this wine are fifth generation winemakers and true biodynamic converts. When I met them at RAW in London, they spoke of energies in a way that reminded me of hippies in the 70’s but which came from the heart. Well worth a buy.
