Jancis Robinson MW is on the topic of Riesling this week. Interestingly, she says the average Bordeaux 2007 "played nicely into the hands of those growing Riesling on the banks of the Mosel and the Rhine". This is because the weather pattern that scuppered the French helped the growth of Germany's favourite varietal. The good news is that these great wines should not simply collect dust. "The 2007s are - glory be - wines to enjoy drinking rather than wines to notch up ripeness and auction records," she enthuses.
