A mixed bag of wines this month, some decent Burgundy and top-flight Cornas. You’ll note it is not only European wines that get a nod this month.
Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2000, Domaine Arlaud: A vintage that is up for drinking soon. Arlaud’s Clos de la Roche might not be as good as Dujac‘s, but it is a seriously lovely drink. £35.00 from Stone, Vine and Sun.
Chambolle-Musigny 1999, Domaine Ghislaine Barthod: A great village wine for drinking now or ageing a few years. Read the note [link2post id=”1577″]here[/link2post]. £21.95 from Stone, Vine and Sun.
Cornas Domaine Saint Pierre 1995, Jaboulet: An excellent, sophisticated, stylish Cornas. The price is very good. £19.50 from the Wine Society.
Bourgogne Rouge 2002, Domaine Arlaud: One of the best Bourgogne Rouges I’ve had, at this price it is a steal. £10.25 from Stone, Vine and Sun.
Cabernet Sauvignon 2001, Tim Adams: A personal favourite, this is as cheap as good wine gets. Whilst this is nice and ripe it also has a good degree of rigour and balance. It is not over ripe or over-blown. It is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Cabernet Franc. £9.95 from the Wine Society.
