Vinblogg -Goda vintips och italiensk mat

Syftet med vinbloggen

En av Sveriges ledande vin- och matbloggar för ickesnobbar. Jag älskar att testa vin från hela världen och att laga italiensk mat i mitt livslånga och lite galna matlagningsprojekt The Silver Spoon.

Äntligen dax!

Idag är jag lycklig. Min yngsta dotter är hemkommen från USA och skönt att få träffa henne igen efter månader av saknad. Nu släpper jag inte i väg henne på ett tag. smiley

Vinblogg Wine of the Year 2010 -Red wine and Grand Prize

Wine of the yearSkapad av Per-Olof Diderot fre, december 31, 2010 12:56:13

Two weeks ago the www.diderot.se/www.vinblogg.com had its first annual meeting to select the wine of the year award. A jury of 6 prominent and knowledgeable wine fans together with myself where chosen to make the picks.

What a great year for reds and difficult to nominate only the best, taking a combination of price and quality into consideration.

And the winners are....

In the red wine category less then 100 SEK

Terre de Mistral 2009

The wine is made with Grenache as main part and supplemented with Syrah and Mourvedre. The color is beautiful purple and smell pleasant with a nice fruitiness blended with lavender and Provencal herbs. The taste is impressive with a nice balance of fruit and spice mix in a nice way. A real bargain...

In the red wine category less then 200 SEK

Les Obriers de la Pèira 2007

The wine has an interesting nose, with hints of wild berries and sweet licorice. Palate is hughly seductive with a fireworks display of chocolate, licorice, plums and violets combined with a velvety body. A fantastic wine that offers more than you can ask for.

In the red wine category over 200 SEK

Craggy Range Te Muna Road Pinot Noir 2008

Craggy Range from Hawks Bay in New Zealand is widely acknowledged to be one of the island's best Pinot Noir producers. Te Muna is a 90 acre vineyard and the name means secret location.

The aroma is typical of Pinot Noir with lovely and sensations of wild raspberries, milk chocolate and vanilla. The wonderful flavor that makes my body to react with a physiological phenomenon, goose bumps, signaling that it is a top wine. The mouth is filled with strawberries, chocolate, herbs, plums and a little toffee. Te Muna has reached a secret place in my heart and is by far the best Pinot Noir I've tried from this island. Unfortunately the jury couldn't try this wine because of me, sadly enough I only bought one bottle when it was released in Sweden.

Over all winner of the Vinblogg Grand Prize 2010

Les Obriers de la Pèira 2007

This wine is produced by the estate La Pèira en Damaisèla in the French appellation Coteaux du Languedoc and owned by music producer Robert Dougan. The winemaker Jéremie Depierre handling of the traditional grapes Cinsault and Carignan is sensational and we congratulate him and the whole team for this amazing effort.

To celebrate Robert Dougans win please look at enclosed videoclip with his production Clubbed to Death. Thanks to all for reading the blog 2010 and welcome back. Happy New Year smiley

Vinblogg Wine of the Year 2010 -Champagne

Wine of the yearSkapad av Per-Olof Diderot lör, december 25, 2010 16:34:25
Dear readers,

I have the privilege to announce the jury´s decision for this years Vinblogg wine of the year in the Champagne class. In fierce competition we finally chose to pick this superb quality Champagne from the producer Beaumont des Crayères. This fantastic Champagne house with 86 hectares is situated near Epernay. A rather short history started in 1955 with a group of wine producers from Mardeuil. One of the best slopes in Mardeuil is called Beaumont des Crayères.

I visited this excellent producer this summer and had the chance to test several of their Champagnes. A great tasting room with walls over crowded with global awards. And even with all these awards you could feel a very professional and humble attitude towards what they have accomplished. I warmly recommend you to make them a visit.

And now 2 the winning Champagne...

This amazing effort is a prestige vintage from 1999 called Nostalgie cuvee that is only produced in exceptional years. The color is golden-yellow with beautiful bubbles. The nose is rich and complex with honey and roasted almonds. The taste blowed the whole jury away with its full creamy taste of almond, citrus and fine minerals. This great Champagne will be develop further and get even better at least 10 more years.


Congratulations to the winemaker, owners and all staff. Please continue making fabulous Champagnes to excellent prices in a consumer point of view.

Vinblogg Wine of the Year 2010 - White wine

Wine of the yearSkapad av Per-Olof Diderot tor, december 16, 2010 20:17:35

Last Saturday the www.diderot.se/www.vinblogg.com had its first annual meeting to select the wine of the year award. A jury of 6 prominent and knowledgeable wine fans together with myself where chosen to make the picks.

As the Chairman I had the privilege to nominate the wines in the different classes. But I have to admit, it was not easy at all. I had to try a lot of wines to make my decision. smiley

Normally I find it difficult to find bargains when choosing white wine. My experience is that you often have to go up rather high in price level to find quality. This year has been an exceptionally good year when it comes to finding really good white wines to nice prices.


And the winners are....

In the white wine class less then 100 SEK

Boulder Bank Sauvignon 2009

A fantastic price for this great wine from down under. Recommended to a spicy mussel soup.

In the white wine class less then 200 SEK

Jordan Chardonnay 2009

Normally I don' t like wooded Chardonnay (blaming the Aussies in the late 80ies), but this wine is a great exception. I am so impressed in this wine and the producers handling of the Chardonnay grape. Minerals, citrus and a lot of tropical fruit. Yummy!

In the white wine class over 200 SEK

Esperit de Beaucastel Blanc 2007

The wine is made from the Roussanne grape with a golden yellow color and the smell is stunningly fine tuned with hints of rose, citrus and honey. The taste is magnificent and hugely seductive, with sweet honey flavors, nice sweet spiciness and a great finish of tropical fruit. I can only bow my head down and congratulate this amazing wine. I put it in firstplace of all white wines I've tried, even before the Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Brand and it says everything at least for me.

California here we come!
