The Oddbins Take

Now we don't want to start a bar room brawl and we are massive fans of French wine, but the British do love an underdog and the story of Ridge's Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon appeals to our sensibilities.


The 1971 vintage was one of the Californian wines that beat its French opponents in 1976's Judgement of Paris blind tasting, which upset the apple cart somewhat over the Channel and cemented California's reputation for being world-class winemakers. The cool 2011 season turned out a pristine vintage of Monte Bello, made from Cabernet Sauvignon.
