Really hope he now does a video with Cameron Diaz talking about his wines!

I must have missed this thread the last time it was invigorated - some deeply lovely pitches there! I specially appreciated those hints of “crap apple”.

It looks like the Society is now listing a Two Paddocks PN, not sure if it was on the list in past vintages.

BTW,
Miraval Rose seems to get around 91/100 on various sites. £30
But those with money to burn.

This Miraval cuvee got 94/100 for the 2019.
ONLY :open_mouth: £240 per magnum in a fancy bottle on Millesima!! :rofl: :wink:

This is the one that I would go for,

Seems like a no brainer to me!! :dragon:

This story about Sting getting duped when buying a vineyard made me chuckle. It’s like something out of an Ealing comedy

Interesting! The same story appeared in Decanter a few months ago, but the cheeky bottle - if I remember correctly - was a Margaux… I’ll have to have another look now…! :grinning:

Not sure if wine celebrities count but this rose by Sasha Lichine goes for £95 a bottle :scream:

Yep! It was a Château Margaux… I love these sort of stories inconsistencies :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

So it turns out that beige, middle of the road, tax-dodging piano botherer Gary Barlow is launching a range of wines.

I can only assume they will be as bland as his music. Although presumably if we buy a bottle, we will end up paying the full amount of tax due.

Now let me say from the very outset I am NOT a fan of the foul-mouthed Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay. Similarly, I am also not a fan of celebrity branded wines (especially after being given one of Kylie’s creations to taste blind recently).

However, having read a the promo bluster below, I cannot believe that GR is selling this plonk for £10 a bottle in Tesco. Where does that shout quality?

You know, what always makes me twitchy about these offerings is how coy they are about provenance of the grapes. All it says for the red is “Rosso: 50% Sangiovese (Tuscany) 30% Montepulciano, 20% Merlot” and that to me smacks of picking up left overs. Certainly I can’t see them having any say in how the grapes are grown, harvested and selected. Probably not even how they are fermented as I suspect they’re just blending surplus wine from several producers.

As you say: quality, I think not!

The clever thing about these wines is that they are sourced across two regions, therefore can only be called Tavola due to the province of the grape mixtures.
