Review Round-up (April-May'19) - Boutinot


 We truly believe our wines are fantastic, but you already knew that – we wouldn’t sell them if we didn’t! That said, it is always nice when someone else comes along and recognises the quality in our portfolio, even better when they write a lovely review in the press to tell everyone about it… Here’s a round-up of what they’ve been saying about us this last month!

3 of our wines have been selected by a panel of judges for Wines of Germany’s ‘Top of the Crops’ 2019 – highlighting the best German wines available in the UK market:

Escherndorfer Lump Silvaner S trocken 2018 (Horst Sauer) – “A powerful, well-balanced, floral and fruity wine with pleasant aromas and a long finish.”

Estate Pinot Noir 2016 (Kloster Eberbach) – “A light-bodied Burgundyesque Pinot Noir with smooth tannins, hints of subtle oak, bursting with cherries, red berries and wild strawberry.”

In der Sangerei Riesling feinherb 2017 (AJ Adam) – “Aromas of stone fruit with light, floral notes, a hint of spice and a touch of mint. Bursting with peach flavours and a zesty citrus acidity with a long finish.

Meanwhile Andrew Jefford has reviewed one of Araldica’s wines in Decanter’s May issue:

Alasia Langhe Nebbiolo 2015: ” … the tannins proved fleshy, slow-dropping and fine; the acidity was warm, round and ingratiating: delicious … ” Andrew Jefford’s ‘What I’ve been drinking this month’.

Antonio Galloni reviews from Vinous:

Uggiano Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2016: ” … a fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet tobacco, red cherry and white pepper are nicely pushed forward in this supple, open-knit Chianti.” 88 points

Uggiano Chianti Riserva ‘Fagiano’ 2015: ” … quite pretty and expressive. Crushed flower and sweet red berry fruit are nicely lifted in a wine that offers lovely persistence, silkiness and nuance, not to mention a good bit of personality as well. This is very nicely done.” 90 points
