...And to drink?

Very unusual, a white Corbieres. It has a lovely roundness to it that teeters on plump, but then has enough acidity to keep it fresh and lively.

This smells glorious. Made entirely from Chenin Blanc, it’s a super-fresh with tangy green apples and a mineral finish.

From the the hills above Montpelier, this has a mountain freshness, with its crisp red fruit and herbal fragrance.

I love Loire Cabernet in a ripe vintage like 2009. This has now opened up to reveal the ripe blackcurrants, which are tempered with green leafy notes.

Six epic wines including the best value red of the year to date!

By Matthew Jukes - Daily Mail, 16/05/2015.. (Posted May 2015)

You might remember me writing up the red wine from this estate recently, well this newly released rosé is an absolute dreamboat. With its coral pink colour and hauntingly perfumed nose this is set to be one of the most elegant wines of the season.

Rhône specialists Yapp Brothers also has a good selection of whites... to Jean-Louis Chave's blissful white Hermitage, a wine you should try if you ever get the chance, particularly from an older vintage.

Yapp also offers a lovely, scented viognier, Vin de Pays de Vaucluse 2014 (13% abv), from Domaine de Durban... I’d love to drink that with a creamy chicken korma.

...a peach of a blend of roussanne and grenache blanc from an underrated region that I'd fancy with cold – or, better still, room temperature – roast chicken. Wines such as these may not last 40 years, but who needs them to? Drinking them over the next 12 months or so will do very nicely, thank you.

Rosé Wines to Drink This Summer

By Eric Asimov - NY Times, 14/05/2015.. (Posted May 2015)

Unlike most Provençal rosés, which rival one another to see how pale they can be, Simone’s is a vibrant cherry color. It’s intended for aging; the proprietor, Jean-François Rougier, said that it is best at five or six years old. It is made primarily of grenache and mourvèdre, with smaller percentages of cinsault, syrah and carignan, and aged in large barrels. The ’13 is pure, substantial and deep, with light berry flavors and great finesse. “You should not drink it too cold,” Mr. Rougier said.
