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.
