"Jason's well-known for keeping a tight ship, but like the egalitarian oenophile we know him to be, he's not averse to granting other mariners of the wine dark sea an opportunity to take the helm and plot a course through the beneficent waters of the bacchanal either. In this instalment, no fewer than six of the U.K's finest sommeliers opine on wine that they would be more than happy to recommend at their own restaurants. There's nothing fancy about their choices either. Here are six, scintillating suggestions that are as affordable and approachable as they are quaffable:
Alsace: Léon Beyer Crémant d'Alsace Brut
Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet: Domaine Saint Gayan 'L'Oratory' 2022
Vouvray: Jean-Claude & Didier Aubert Demi-Sec 2019
Vin de Pays de Vaucluse: Le Petit Caboche 2021
Saint-Pourçain: 'La Ficelle' Rouge 2022
IGP Méditerranée: Domaine Richeaume 'Cuvée Tradition' Rouge 2020."
