  1. Prince Stirbey Negru de Dragasani

    Prince Stirbey Negru de Dragasani 2016

    £14.50

    £14.50

    This wine is made by the family-owned Prince Stirbey winery, whose predecessors (i.e. the Prince) used to make wine in a palace in Bucharest, from the 17th century onwards, that was served in restaurants including that on the Orient Express. Stirbey was appropriated by the communist party in 1949 and then returned to the family over 50 years later in 2001.

    That (wipes brow) is the first part of this wine's story. The second part is that a previous vintage of Negru de Dragasani was chosen from a blind line-up by Steve Saunders, the winner of The Palate 2014 as the wine that he wanted Oddbins to stock. This is what the affable Bristolian had to say about his (fantastic) choice:
    "One taste of this and you'll know Romanian wine is firmly back on the map. Full of rich blackberry and cherry fruit with fine tannins and a wonderfully smooth finish that goes on and on. Like reclining on a bed of silk pillows while angels dance on your tongue, this is a truly sumptuous drop."
    With the same dense cherry and berry flavours and velvety tannins, this vintage is just as great! Treat yourself to this bottle of luxury and be a Prince (or Princess) for a day whenever you like.
