Wine Enthusiast's best-of-the-best list is focussed on excellent quality combined with competitive pricing. This year, the following ABFW wines feature:
- E. Guigal 2011 Château d'Ampuis (Côte Rôtie) - hints of pepper, bacon, clove and leather. Reasonably full-bodied for Côte Rôtie, with smoked-meat flavours, ample spice and plenty of concentrated plum. Will age well for at least 10–15 years.
- Domaine Saint-Rémy Ehrhart Hengst Grand Cru Gewurztraminer - a lemon and peach scented nose with a generously sweet ripe peach palate. The flavour and richness is countered by the lemony freshness and a touch of honeysuckle . The medium-sweet finish is long and balanced. Drink now.
These domaines also received mentions in James Suckling's top 100 French and Alsatian wines respectively - for the La Mouline and La Landonne Côte Rôties, Pinot Noir and Riesling Grand Cru Hengst.
To purchase any of these wines please contact your usual salesman or firstname.lastname@example.org.
