Irish Times Autumn wine guide

Luc de Conti, owner - winemaker of Tour des Gendres with Pascal Rossignol John Wilson recommends three of our imports in his Autumn wine guide... Tamellini, Soave DOC 2006 (12.5%) Good Soave is a wonderful thing, and we now have a number of really good examples in this country. This has lovely rich, textured fruit, cut through with a welcome mineral streak. Probably big enough to handle chicken, but happiest with some hake or cod. Champagne J.M. Gobillard Premier Cru Brut N.V. (12%) A lacy, floral nose, leading onto a wonderful, elegant Champagne with delicate honey and biscuits to complement the fresh green fruits. Very attractive and very keenly priced too. Tour des Gendres Cuvée Classique, Bergerac AC 2007 (12.5%) “Bordeaux-lovers should head straight for this wine, with its delicious, beautifully defined, poised blackcurrant fruits and pleasing dry finish. An organic wine made from a blend of Merlot and Malbec, this is one of my all-time favourite wines, a fine match for most red meats, but perfect with roast lamb.” John Wilson The Irish Times: John Wilson’s Autumn Wines Saturday, October 3rd, 2009
