A weekly wrap; 23 March 2013

Well, another week has slipped by.  I somehow managed to post quite a few wine reviews this week, though this was perhaps made easier by the number of high quality wines tasted.  I still haven't managed to write up my promised notes on my extraordinary tasting of old Chassagne-Montrachets the other week.  In fact, I'm still sitting on a few notes from my Canadian tastings from last month, which will hopefully write themselves up shortly.

This week I've had two or three wines that I've felt the need to run out and buy more, with the Montefili Rosso below my value pick for the week.

Here are links to all of the wines reviewed this week:
