tannins in wine


Red Sancerre (Episode 210)

In this episode, we taste a Sancerre, but a special Sancerre in that it is a Red Sancerre.

Sancerre is world renown and by many is viewed to be the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world.

Red wine from the region is not however so well known and typically is made with Pinot Noir.

On the nose, this wine didn’t exhibit the normal forest floor scent for John L whilst John M could smell it very very faintly.

The Scent from the wine was very light but strawberry fruit could be detected.

On the taste, the wine seems very one dimensional, the taste of strawberry was present but in John M’s view the tannins were a little too heavy for the lighter tasted experienced with this wine.

Our view of this particular wine, (Sancerre Rouge Les Champs Clos Pinot Noir is available from Sainsbury’s for £11.50) overall was disappointing from it’s lack of complexity of taste given the price.

Beefsteak Club Mendoza Malbec (Episode 177)

We taste yet another Beefsteak Club Wine in the search for wine that John L tasted in a restaurant recently.

We have struggled to find a “good” Malbec and so will this be one to slot into the “good” category?

Take the look a the video to find out…

Priorat Wine (Episode157)

In this episode, we taste a Priorat from Catalunya in Spain.

This wine is a blend of Garnacha, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mazuela and Syrah and, given it’s alcohol by volume of 14.5%, it has a very light taste making it very interesting and easy to drink. Perhaps too easy!

The wine is Sainsbury’s own “Taste the Difference” brand and was available at the time of publishing for £12.00
