Jamie has now published his top 12 reds from our September press tasting. For info, the Colares and the Marsannay are out of stock, the Bourgogne Rouge has moved on a vintage and the Ghemme has dropped back two vintages!
Very excited to see the Mencia - I had missed that one
Must try to remedy that …
I’ve had my eyes on the Priorat and this confirms, as I suspected that it’s really rather good - Priorat is just getting so expensive though - and at £30 this is no exception!
The real bargain looks to be the Ramisco Colares - I’m not used to lighter style wines from Portugal - but it seems like a winner.
The Colares is a winner indeed, but sadly out of stock (our Christmas Press Tasting was end September).
Also it was a 50 cl bottle, so not the bargain it looks. It was rather good though.
Still cheap compared to that Priorat which is now in my shopping basket
Edit: I’m almost 100% convinced that he has edited his article completely in respect of the Ramisco - when I first looked pretty sure it said it was £7.75 for a full bottle - now it’s £20 for 50cl!
9 am this morning it was showing what it’s showing now, as that’s when I updated my press quote spreadsheet
Haha… if only I could blame my misread on having had one too many… sadly not!
If you’re like me, you dream about regular £20 purchases, but actually buy & drink the Bojo VIllages at £7.75!
