Berry Brothers & Rudd, only the oldest wine merchant in the world, wine purveyor to The Queen, rumoured to have labrynthine cellars that stretch from St. James to Buckingham Palace – Has joined the twitterati. Not only have they joined the twitterati @winematters , they even did a Twitter Taste live from said cellars last week.
The Winesleuth and Wine90 couldn’t make it to the cellars (we don’t like spiders) so we settled in at my house, anxiously awaiting the DHL guy who delivered the wines and then joined in via Twitter. This wasn’t any old wine tasting, it was a biodynamic wine tasting. I didn’t know this but BBR carry an extensive range of organic and now biodynamic wines. Are biodynmic wines any better or worse? We were the judge.
There were 3 wines on tasting:
|2007||Mâcon, Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon (Stelvin) — Héritiers du Comte Lafon £11.95|
|2006||Vacqueyras, Garrigues, Domaine Montirius — Montirius — France £11.95|
|2006||L’As, Coteaux du Languedoc, Mas Conscience — Mas Conscience — France £15.40|
Here’s what we thought of the Vacqueyras…
A big thanks to Berry Brothers & Rudd and to Rob over at WineConversation for inviting us and getting the wines to my house just in time!
