Date: Mon, Feb 2, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

With a roast chicken last night a simply gorgeous Cotes du Rhone village – the 2006 Janasse ‘Terre d’Argile”.  Janasse, of course, produces top notch Chateauneuf du Pape but alongside these it crafts a range of Cotes du Rhone that punch well above their weight. The Terre d’Argile comprises equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. [...]

A lesson in Lotto

Date: Sat, Jan 17, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

One of those slightly surreal evenings last night – playing lotto in aid of Lily’s school in the village of Malaucene. Earlier in the day we were met with bemusement as we tried to buy tickets in advance- confusing lotto with a tombola, how stupid. The proceedings kicked off just after 8pm as the MC [...]

In praise of Mourvedre

Date: Sat, Jan 10, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

The following is part of a series of short pieces I write for Brighton community newspaper the Westhill Whistler:  If you’re new to wine writing and you come across the acronym GSM you’d be forgiven for assuming it was something to avoid in your wine or at least treated with suspicion – in the same category [...]

The big freeze cometh…

Date: Wed, Jan 7, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

About 10 cms of snow fell and settled around La Madelene this morning. Not as unusual as you might think in this part of the Vaucluse. Looks stunning though makes driving on the country roads around us a perilous activity. Time to hibernate in the warmest room with the biggest open fire - the kitchen [...]

A drive around the Luberon..

Date: Tue, Dec 30, 2008 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Excursion today around the Luberon villages. The weather overcast and threatening but with the benefit that for the most part we had the roads and tiny village streets to ourselves, a real treat. Gordes is oh so pretty, chi-chi even, relatively bustling - the weekly market doesn’t sell any vegetables at all or anything you [...]
