E-blast : Wines You Need to Get (vol. 22-05)

13 May 2022

Hello May, hello hotter, milder weather, hello bud break ... For many, May is the unofficial beginning of summer. The May long weekend is time to roll out the BBQ, put out the patio furniture and relax on the deck for another wave of heat ahead. I look forward to the Rosé Report, which is now a month and a half away (released the first week of July). I have already begun tasting the wines that will be in that report and am thrilling at the amount of pink-choice we have, with plenty more to come.

But this week is not about those pink wines, it's about Noirs: Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir and Baco Noir, plus there's some Riesling and Melon de Bourgogne also kicking around. And let me tell you, that Melon will help you ease nicely into summer, so get it before it's all gone.

Finally, in this e-blast you'll also find this week's highlighted videos, articles and podcasts.

I have launched a Patreon page - I have added some incentives for my supporters (and will be adding more in the form of unique and exclusive content)

so take a look, see how you can help and as always I appreciate any support you can give - you can find it by clicking here.


Be safe - stay healthy - drink well - get vaccinated.
