Finally, five wines from around the web

My apologies for not having recommendations for the last couple of months. I can only plead illness as an excuse.

Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2001, Fulgni: One for those who like tannin, but the ripeness of the fruit keeps this in balance. It is a bit pricey, though, but so are all Brunello Riservas. £48.95 from Lea and Sandeman.

Vosne Romanée Premier Cru Suchots 2003, Domaine Confuron Coteditot: Yves Confuron is one of the few people who made good Burgundy in 2003. This is big, but charming. One to stick in the cellar. £35.95 from Lea and Sandeman.

Chassange Montrachet Premier Cru Grandes Ruchottes 2004, Domaine Fernand et Laurent Pillot: These wines used to be quite oaky, but in recent years they seem to have toned down that side and this is quite pure and refined. £31.75 from Lea and Sandeman.

Semillon 2003, Moss Wood: Despite its high-ish alcohol this is a refreshing drink that will be good for summer drinking. One of my favourite Australian Semillons. £12.05 from Jeroboams.

Sancerre “La Reine Blanche” 2005, Domaine Vacheron: OK, [link2post id=”1186″]I only had this yesterday[/link2post], but it was such a good wine for the price I cannot help but recommend it. £11.95 from the Wine Society.
