Tasting articles

Tasting articles are the way we publish our most important groups of tasting notes, typically horizontals (one vintage, different producers) or verticals (one producer, different vintages) or from one particular region. Reluctantly, and only because we know how useful they are, we give scores, out of 20, European-style. We also suggest suitable drinking dates because we feel strongly that the wine trade doesn't give us consumers nearly enough advice about when to drink their wines. See more details of What our scores mean.

You can see a complete list of the tasting articles that have already been published in our comprehensive list of Tasting articles by region, although remember this does not include all of the tens of thousands of tasting notes on the site. To find specific tasting notes, use the Tasting notes search which also allows you to Find this wine by linking you directly to the relevant pages of www.winesearcher.com listing prices and stockists worldwide.

For a list of all our articles, see Bordeaux 2013 - a guide to our coverage Sauternes are the 2013s for which buying en primeur is perhaps most sensible. They are more likely to be eventually pricier via normal retail, as they have not been hugely inflated as the reds have in recent. More...
For Cloudy Bay and cousins , an article about what Jean-Guillaume Prats did after he left Ch Cos d'Estournel last year, I have been tasting some of the key wines produced by LVMH on their wine properties outside France. Did you see they have just moved into Burgundy with the acquisition of the. More...
The trend towards making fresher, more terroir-driven, less 'winemakered' wines continues. It was already evident in practically all regions when I was researching the latest, seventh edition of The World Atlas of Wine . But here are notes on a couple of producers who exemplify the trend.. More...

Each February during the annual en primeur tastings organised throughout Tuscany, the organisers in Montalcino and Chianti Classico always prepare something to throw at us journalists, be it some newsworthy aspect or a launch of sorts, even if sometimes it gets less favourably covered than. More...
Certain tastings have a Pavlovian effect on the wine lover, and none is more salivatory than that of London wine merchant Lea & Sandeman. Time and again, they have one of the finest collections of wine in town, and so it proved at their most recent event. The emphasis was on traditional. More...
At the same time as my second tranche of tastings of Brunello di Montalcino 2009 , I also had a look at Rosso di Montalcinos, mainly 2012 but some 2011s and 2010s, too. I truly like Rosso di Montalcino as a category. Sure, it is not cheap, although it retails at roughly half the price of. More...
The 46 wines below were chosen by the highly regarded British wine-buying co-operative organisation to show to us wine hacks earlier this month. I had the impression that there were more wines at the very bottom of the price range than usual, which may be why I came away less enthralled by the. More...
As Richard represents us in Bordeaux this week (explained here ), tasting his way through the 2013s, we present this look at the last three relatively challenging vintages there as expressed by one of the better crus bourgeois, Ch d'Agassac. The descriptions immediately below are theirs, the. More...
