Oz Clarke's 250 Best Wines 2009

Oz Clarke's 250 Best Wines 2009 contains the usual emphasis on wines available from the big players and the multiples (fair enough really: that's where most people buy wines). A quick count suggests around 100 of the recommendations are wines not available in the supermarkets or from Oddbins and The Wine Society so we are feeling rather proud to have three of these available exclusively from BRW. Domaine des Anges ' "L'Archange" 2004 Rouge and Xavier Vignon 's Rouge and Blanc were the three wines selected (click on the wines to see Oz's notes). Oz also wrote this about BRW: "Intelligently chosen, reliably individualistic wines from estates in France, Italy and Spain. A list worth reading, full of information and provocative opinion – and they’re not overcharging." Oz Clarke's 250 Best Wines Wine Buying Guide 2009
