Burgundy plus a couple of wines for summer.
Morey Saint Denis Premier Cru les Ruchots 1999, Domaine Arlaud: Lovely Morey. Read the [link2post id=”1526″]note[/link2post] here. £26.95 from Stone, Vine and Sun.
Niederhauser Hermannshohle Riesling Spatlese 2004, Dönnhoff: A brilliant 2004 German Riesling. Great acidity, lovely fruit and nice richness. It will age really well, but is quite lovely to drink now. £24.95 from Uncorked.
Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2001, Domaine Fourrier: A concentrated and stylish village wine. It is a good 2001 that is pretty much up for drinking, but keeping it a few years won’t do it any harm at all. £20.50 from Stone, Vine and Sun.
Morey Saint Denis Clos Solon 2002, Domaine Fourrier: This is quite a bargain for a beautiful little village wine. £18.95 from Stone, Vine and Sun.
Moscato d’Asti 2005, Vignaioli di San Stefano: There is a lot of Moscato about, but as this is Elitist Review I import the best from Italy each year for summer drinking. It is fruity, slightly sweet, fizzy and very refreshing. The 2005 has real depth of flavour. €10.80 from Spacewine.
