What’s going on now….What’s coming up

 

 

Excitement in the French Regions

A great deal is happening in deepest, darkest France: a questing and experimentation like never before. Here we bring some of the most brilliant examples, one from the Rhône, one from the Loire Atlantique.

 

Dry Germans

A style that once presented a real challenge. Yet new exponents have found this a way to communicate maximum terroir in the most fascinating way. This will take you there…

 

A Champagne and Regional French Reds

From tastings to date it looks as though the 2008 vintage in Champagne has produced elegant and delicious wines. We’re offering a fascinating Blanc de Blancs from a top “leftfield” producer. This will take you there. 

 

 

 





Fabien Jouves taps off a sample

 

And Cahors, long a source of rustic, chewy red wines now has a new, biodynamic champion in the shape of Fabien Jouves. Exploiting the highest vineyards of the appellation, Fabien is making wines of enormous class. You can find them here.

 

Video Tasting Notes

Caspar has started filming himself tasting offer wines in the belief that a picture (or multiple pictures per second) paints a thousand words. The Bowes Wine and Daily Drinker YouTube channels can be found here and here respectively.
