The closest link between the people that make wine and the people that drink it
As we prepare for Monday’s biodynamic Twitter Taste Live event, we take a sneak preview of the wines we’ll be trying:
The first will be 2007 Mâcon, Les Héretieres du Comte Lafon, Burgundy and in the video below Simon Field MW, buyer at Berrys, takes a moment to talk about how the biodynamic principles used have made this wine so special.
The second wine of the evening will be 2006 Vacqueyras, Garrigues, Domaine Montirius, Rhône. This is a hugely popular red from Montirius, who Wine Matters interviewed recently. In this video Simon talks about why he fell in love with their wines and how the contrast between the wine’s characteristics and the personalities of the producers make for an interesting comparison.
The final wine in the Twitter Taste Live event will be 2006 L’As, Coteaux du Languedoc, Mas Conscience. Be warned, this is a wine which should really be decanted an hour or two beforehand! In the final video Simon tells us about the couple who produce this wine and the area that they call home.
