Volnay Premier Cru Champans 1996, Marquis d’Angerville: I’ve drank all of my 1996 d’Angerville’s, alas, they were very good for what has developed into a most disappointing vintage. Beautiful, elegant and refined. Will certainly keep a lot longer. £46.50 from Hand Picked Burgundy.
Aberfeldy Shiraz 2004, Tim Adams: A marvellous Shiraz that is extremely pleasing despite being very Australian. A sort of note is [link2post id=”1117″]here[/link2post]. £23.74 from Tesco.
Pinot Noir Stermer Vineyard 2003, Lemelson: Excellent Pinot Noir from Oregon. We popped a bottle of this for general drinking a few weeks ago (I was too tired and emotional, tired and emotional as a newt, to post a note, sorry), it had a great purity of fruit that was very charming. Up for drinking now, too. £22.50 from The Wine Society.
Pouilly Fuisse Vieilles Vignes La Verchere 2005, Domaine Daniel Barraud: Proper white Burgundy from off the magic slope. His wines have great minerality and bags of charm. This is a bargain for the quality. £17.75 from Lea and Sandeman.
Savennieres “La Jalousie” 2005, Domaine du Closel: Characterful wine doesn’t come much cheaper than this. The note is 1079″]here. £9.95 from The Wine Society.
