Jane’s & My Favourites Outside of Burgundy & Bordeaux

Event Date: December 14, 2020 6:00pm (UK Time)

Jasper on Zoom Jane & Jasper’s Favourites outside of Burgundy & Bordeaux

What non-Burgundy and Bordeaux wines do I and Jane Anson always have on hand in our cellars? This special tasting will see each of us select our favourite producers and regions outside of their respective specialties, and see them share the reasons for their choices.

I admit I need a bit of Riesling to tune up with, and a firm favourite remains cabernet franc from the Loire. For a special treat then the unique wines of Vega Sicilia beckon:

  1. 2017 Heymann-Löwenstein VDP, Uhlen Roth Lay Riesling
  2. 2008 Clos Rougeard Saumur-Champigny Le Clos
  3. 2004 Vega Sicilia Unico

Jane has gone for an unusual ‘field blend’ white wine from the brilliant Telmo Rodriguez at his home estate of Remelluri in Rioja. For the reds, a producer that is pretty much always in her wine rack at home, Stéphane Ogier. Hard to narrow it down to one choice from this excellent northern Rhône producer, but in the end she selected his Côte Blonde single parcel Syrah, Le Lancement. Over into northern Italy for her final choice and GD Vajra, another producer where it is almost impossible to pick one from their exceptional range but hard to fault the Bricco delle Viole; a 7 hectare vineyard that delivers classic Barolo:

  1. 2017 Heymann-Löwenstein VDP, Uhlen Roth Lay Riesling
  2. 2008 Clos Rougeard Saumur-Champigny Le Clos
  3. 2004 Vega Sicilia Unico
  4. 2017 Remelluri Blanco, DOCa Rioja
  5. 2010 Stéphane Ogier, Cote Rotie Le Lancement
  6. 2015 G.D. Vajra, Barolo `Bricco delle Viole
