Collection of wine news and wine-related feeds

Viognier is one of my favourite grapes. Here’s Jancis’ recent article on the grape <link> and here is her list of some top wines.

Some top wines:
Cuilleron – Les Chaillets
Guigal – La Doriane
Vernay – Coteau de Vernon
Villard – Terrasses du Pilat
Alban – Edna Valley
Yalumba – The Virgilius

It is pleasing to read that:

“Condrieu has, fortunately, been experiencing a revival and injection of real winemaking ambition so that old names such as Vernay have been revived and relative newcomers such as Cuilleron, Gangloff, Niero and Villard have contributed to an overall raising of standards. Furthermore, attention and investment from such quality-conscious merchants as Guigal and Delas has resulted in some superb bottlings, of which Guigal’s La Doriane has a particular following.”

My pre-wine, wine, wine post on the 2006 Verite from Laurent Miquel is here <link>. I’m still buying and drinking this wine. It’s great value.

Thanks Jancis.
