Here are some highlights:

OCTOBER promises to be just as busy, with the following articles due to be published:

  • A massive tasting article on the best of Piemonte by Jancis and Walter
  • Impressive 2010 Crus Bourgeois - nearly 200 of them
  • Even more about That Book (our special offer will remain 'sticky' at the top of the list of Latest articles for a while)
  • Many more tasting notes on fine Italians and fine Iberians
  • A compilation of reviews of some of France's greatest wine bargains, from the Languedoc, of course
  • and more on Croatia, Argentina and Chile 
  • and Buckingham Palace champagne
  • as well as a wide range of retailers' selections including Laithwaites and The Wine Society
