Ch. Léoube Rosé 'Right for the Weather' according to Jancis Robinson
Château Léoube Rosé Côtes de Provence 2010
"Enjoying a glass of Ch Leoube Provencal rose - seems right for the weather. Made on Bamford (JCB) estate but really subtly. No heavy metal."

Passopisciaro 2007 Tim Atkin's 'Wine of the Week'
Passopisciaro 2007, IGT Sicilia
"If your impression of Sicily is of a sweltering island making chunky reds, cheap, New World-style whites and Marsala, you haven't discovered the Nerello Mascalese grape from Mount Etna yet. Andrea Franchetti's Burgundian-style red, sourced from vines as old as 120 years, is remarkable: perfumed and elegant, with notes of red cherry and wild strawberry, savoury tannins, refreshing acidity and impressive length and complexity."

Achaval-Ferrer Winery Recommended in the FT
"Fine wine aficionados should also beat a path to the door of Achaval-Ferrer’s tiny Bella Vista winery in Perdriel on the famous Via Cobos. For many, Achaval-Ferrer make the best Malbec wines in Argentina. If you are planning on making the pilgrimage, it is essential to book in advance.”

Cecilia Beretta's Decanter's Red Wine of the Week
Valpolicella Classico Superiore Terre di Cariano Cecilia Beretta 2007
"An impressive Corvina-based red. Tar and liquorice notes dovetail with juicy cherry and lifted violets. On the palate are further soft, plump cherries, fine tannins and perfectly integrated acidity. Very appealing." 4****
Champagne Salon Blanc de Blancs 1999 shows 'undeniable refinement'
Champagne Salon 1999
"It's a pleasing contradiction of characthers: while its notes of Meyer lemon, grapefruit pith and nut oils are luscious and atypically forward for a young Salon, it also feels unusually youthful and tense for the vintage, and as compelling as it is to taste now, it clearly contains hidden facets waiting to be revealed in the future."

Château Léoube Rosé 2009 Decanter's Wine of the Week
Chateau Leoube Rose AC Cotes de Provence 2009
"Needs little introduction, although some offerings fail to live up to the region's renown. Not so with this wine, with its beguiling summery red fruits, floral charm and crisp acidity, bolstered by a firm, mineral core." 4****

The Lane's Sauvignon Semillon 09 is of 'mind-bending quality' according to Matthew Jukes
Gathering Sauvignon Semillon The Lane 2009
"Australia’s definitive SBS, Gathering, manages to expertly tread the line between joyous aperitif and mind-bendingly complex food wine. The oak used here is so subtly employed that it is incredible and yet without it this wine would not have the wondrous amplitude that it does throughout. Mind-bending quality, unerring commitment and the result is that it leaves you feeling astonishingly violated."
