The word "pago" derives from the Latin word pagus, a small village or hamlet,. It is used in Spain to refer to a small vineyard or olive grove that is the source of top quality produce.
Fragrant and aromatic grape from Argentina.
Soft plum and raspberry flavours.
Soft apple, pear and citrus flavours, hint of oak and vanilla, slight buttery quality but not too pronounced. #macon #bourgogne 🇨🇵
Nice well balanced red from Argentina, made with the ubiquitous Malbec.
My Vivino review:
Blackberry, blackcurrant and plum. Leather, tobacco and spice also in there. There's quite a lot going on here but it is also quite light and lively. #argentina
Robust tannins but full of cherry, plum, tobacco and leather. A lovely wine from Concha y Toro.
What is the best wine to match with morels? A white Sangiovese wine from Italy worked pretty well.
The Torres family is one of the most revered in the wine world. I first came across Torres as an undergraduate at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The college wine tasting took us through the various Torres wines from Viña Esmeralda and Sangre de Toro to much more elaborate wines.
Excellent rosé from Menetou-Salon, a small village at the eaatern end of the Loire valley. This wine was subtle and well balanced, with fruity strawberry and pear flavours.
The wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes, as are many of the red wines in this small but sophisticated appellation. Like nearby Sancerre, it also produces some crisp dry white wines.
This rosé was from Domaine Pellé and we bouhht it at the La Borne pottery village nearby.
We had this red wine from Corbières at The Warren, a restaurant in Tunbridge Wells.
