Sherry by Julian Jeffs | book review

[pullquote position=”right”]This book about Sherry is a classic[/pullquote]. It is now in its 6th edition (first published 1961!), so just imagine how many wine enthusiasts and wine professions that have learned about the Spanish wine through this book. And probably enjoyed learning too. This book is thorough. No stones are left unturned, all aspects are […]

Chateau de Beaucastel blanc vieilles vignes 1991

This is a magnificent white wine, probably the best white in the entire Rhone Valley. A full-bodied wine made with the Roussanne grape. The nose is intense with aromas of beeswax, honey, ripe apricot. Full-bodied, rich, almost oily in the mouth. Very long finish. The wine has a great ageing potential and this 1991 is […]

Domaine Saladin wines

Per Èl 2010, Domaine Saladin & Filles, Côtes du Rhône Villages Blanc | Britt’s Wine of the Month

This is a white wine from the southern Rhone Valley. It is delicious, rich and flavourful with intensity and concentration. I have a weakness for white Rhône wines, and this one did not disappoint me. The grape varieties are Clairette rose, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Bourboulenc. The grapes are harvested early in the morning […]
