Matthew's latest wine reviews from Moneyweek magazine
2018 G de Château Guiraud
This wondrous dry wine triggered widespread adulation at one of Matthew Jukes’ recent Bordeaux dinners.
NV Bolé, Spumante Bianco
This terrific Italian sparkler has a Prosecco-style fizz, but with a knockout flavour and an awful lot more to hang onto.
2018 Payten & Jones
For the price of a dodgy bottle of Chablis you can drink this sensational, pristine, pin-point accurate beauty, says Matthew Jukes.
NV Veuve Monsigny
This well-packaged Champagne, with its insultingly low price point, is a genuine revelation.
2018 Jessica Saurwein Chi Riesling
An invigorating dry riesling that’s a citrus lightning strike on your senses, and a one of South Africa’s most refined and floral pinots.
You are guaranteed to be amazed at the energy and pristine freshness of this wine, says Matthew Jukes.
2017 Once & Future
This Californian zinfandel is a truly great wine with fabulous black-cherry fruit, impeccable lift and brightness, and thrilling acidity on the finish.
This wine is an instant classic, says Matthew Jukes – a smooth, enticing, beautifully balanced number.
A life-long Selvapiana fan, Matthew Jukes samples a tip off from a fellow wine scribe – and what a wine it turned out to be.
If you have yet to experience the palate-electrifying flavour of a Txakoli then you haven’t lived, says Matthew Jukes.
