I can not resist the attraction of hugh Johnson’s books, when I met with his daughter’s wine book; oh, that is cool. She is such a cool lady.
She writes about young wines (white) for women to enjoy, which aroused me even to work for women’ tasting needs.
Here is the notes from her book.
Look for: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume (sorry, I can not type in French) and other European Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Orvieto, Verdicchio and other light, northern Italian whites. Muscadet from the Loire, Vinho Verde from Portugal, young unoaked Semillon, Colombard.
That is so good for a shy lady to take a chance to order wines from the pub.
All those wines give so much good reasons for women to be romantic to drink as aperitifs, summer outdoor drinks.
Continue with more flavors, she suggested “Gavi and good Soave from Italy, Pinot Blanc from Alsace or the United States, Chablis from Burgundy, Chenin Blanc from Vouvray or, slightly less smooth, from South Africa”.
Note this, I am now going to sell South African white wines, such as Chenin Blanc, which is quite well-known now.
If say you are a lady with age beauty, here she suggested “oaked Graves or Pessac-Leognan (Bordeaux), mature New World Semillion, Burgundy, Marsanne from Australia”.
All are brilliant. I almost make a merchandising list for women.
