Jancis Robinson Wine Tips

Jancis Robinson

Described by Decanter magazine as 'the most respected wine critic and journalist in the world', Jancis writes daily for (voted first-ever Wine Website of the Year in the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards 2010), weekly for The Financial Times,  and bi-monthly for a column that is syndicated around the world. Her  most recent book is also her shortest, a practical guide to the  essentials of wine, The 24-Hour Wine Expert. She is editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine, co-author with Hugh Johnson of  The World Atlas of Wine and co-author of Wine Grapes - A complete guide to 1,368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours, each of these books recognised as a standard reference worldwide.

She travels all over the world to conduct wine events - often for the global literacy initiative Room to Read  - and act as a wine judge. In 1984 she was the first person outside the  wine trade to pass the rigorous Master of Wine exams and in 2003 she  was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen, on whose cellar she now  advises. In one week in April 2016 she was presented with France's  Officier du Mérite Agricole, the German VDP's highest honour and, in the  US, her fourth James Beard Award.

She loves and lives for wine in all its glorious diversity, generally favouring balance and subtlety over sheer mass.

Janice Robinson Review of Chateau La Haye


Excellent nose, which has so much black fruit and spice on offer! Chewy tannic texture which is very approachable now but will develop well. Pristine black fruit on palate, with anise and licorice on the finish. Should age beautifully.
