The Times, Review: The best wine to buy this September, Will Lyons, 31/08/2020:

2017 PINOT NOIR Spätburgunder Weingut Braunewell
2017 PINOT NOIR Spätburgunder Weingut Braunewell
£15.95 | £13.50
Review: ‘One of the best spätburgunders (pinot noirs) I’ve tasted. Confidently full-bodied, it retains the natural spiciness of the grape, with red fruit and an earthy punch on the palate.’

The Sunday Times, Review: the best wines from the Loire Valley, Will Lyons, 10/08/2020:

2019 Sauterelles
2019 Domaine de Pierre Touraine Les Sauterelles
£12.50 | £11.50
Review: ‘Overseen by Lionel Gosseaume, the respected Domaine de Pierre is named after his father. You get a lot of wine for your money here: zingy gooseberry and citrus combine with an invigorating green snap.’

The Telegraph, The best bottles of pinot noir to buy under £20, Victoria Moore, 06/08/2020:

2017 PINOT NOIR Spätburgunder Weingut Braunewell
2017 PINOT NOIR Spätburgunder Weingut Braunewell
£15.95 | £13.50
Review: ‘In a different style to the expansive and casual Walt, Braunewell has a much more Burgundian tension, a scent of forest floor and a tingle in the mouth and it would work really well as a sharpener at the end of the day, then on the dinner table with a thyme-roasted chicken.’

The Rye and Battle Observer, A trio of French summer wines, Richard Esling, 04/08/2020:

2019 CHÂTEAU DE TRACY Pouilly Fumé Henri d'Assay
2019 CHÂTEAU DE TRACY Pouilly Fumé Henri d’Assay
£26.50 | £23.75
Review: ‘The vineyards of Pouilly Fumé make some of the best Sauvignons in the world, and Chateau de Tracy Pouilly Fumé 2019 is no exception. Again grown on wonderfully sited slopes, overlooking the Loire river, much of the vineyard is old vines, and the combination gives rise to exceptional wines, with great complexity, elegance and refinement. The aroma is floral, with notes of fresh orange, white peach and nectarine. A beautifully balanced palate shows structure, depth and elegance from this excellent vintage.’
