"wine like this is nirvana" - Hugh Johnson
The World of Fine Wine is a magazine with a readership of around 7,000, and hardly any advertising. It costs a bit to buy (about £35 a copy!), but it is essential reading for anyone who ever spends more than £15 on a bottle of wine, and has an interest in how wine can enhance life.
Last month, issue 35 was published, and we were delighted to learn that Domaine of the Bee was one of the wines that Hugh Johnson had chosen to feature in his column. Here's what he said:
"Domaine of the Bee takes super-ripe classic Midi grapes to the point where if feels though not another grape, or grape's worth of fruit flavour, could fit in the bottle. The intensity can be almost painful, but somehow the edges are all planed away. You bring out your killer cheese at the end of the meal, and wine like this is nirvana."
Hugh is perhaps the world's favourite wine writer, and this is high praise indeed!
