Five wines from around the web #20

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2001, Domaine Rene Engel: Snap up these deeply affordable and high quality wines from the late, lamented M. Engel whilst you still can. This is a great wine for the price. £59 from Hand-Picked Burgundy.

Morey Saint Denis Premier Cru Les Loups 1999, Domaine des Lambrays: A long-time favourite of mine, up for drinking with a lot of pleasure. £34 from Hand-Picked Burgundy.

Champagne Cuvee 731, Jacquesson: A top NV Champagne. Jacquesson make some damned good fizz. £28.69 from Noel Young Wines.

Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg L31E 2004, Domaine Albert Boxler: It has been a 1417″]couple of years since I last had this, but it is undoubtedly a top wine that anyone would be pleased to own. £25.14 from Noel Young Wines.

Pinot Blanc ‘B’ 2005, Domaine Albert Boxler: I admit this is reasonably expensive for a Pinot Blanc, but this hails from the Brand Grand Cru so is quite a lot more serious than your general Pinot Blanc. £14.95 from Lay and Wheeler.
