NY Times’s Eric Asimov Selects Jean-Max Roger’s Cuvee le Charnay Menetou-Salon As No. 1 Pick In Aug. 9 Wines of the Times Column

Here at HG Wine & Spirits, we were surprised and very delighted to read in The New York Times August 9 edition what Wine Critic Eric Asimov had to say about one of the Loire Valley wines of Jean-Max Roger: “Our No. 1 bottle was the fragrant, lively 2010 Cuvée le Charnay Menetou-Salon from Jean-Max Roger. I would love to drink this wine tonight.”

While Mr. Asimov and his tasting panel also recommended some other bottlings from those Sauvignon Blanc wines in regions nearby the famous Sancerre appellation, which he termed as “In The Orbit of Sancerre,” we are extremely proud that the panel singled out Jean-Max Roger’s 2010 Charnay from the Menetou Salon appellation as the panel’s  top pick.
