Jancis Robinson talks wine and rugby with Brian Moore2018122420201227 (R4)

Uncork a bottle, reveal a person…

Jancis Robinson recommends wine to former rugby player and wine connoisseur Brian Moore.

In this series Jancis Robinson is on a festive mission to recommend wines to famous guests. After all, wines are a bit like people really. Some are bold and fruity, some elegant and refined; you’ll get aging smoothies and sharp young things. But what do you recommend to a man who was nicknamed 'Pitbull' - famously aggressive on the rugby field, but also a sophisticated debater and a trained manicurist?

Jancis aims to find bottles that match or reveal things about Brian's public persona but also his more secretive, private self. What follows is a lively conversation about wine and personality – about a person’s taste, their passions and opinions. On the way we’ll learn a lot about wine - about tasting, and style, about balance, acid and tannin; about winemaking and winemakers. It's a conversational masterclass from one of our foremost wine writers. But more than that – the open bottle starts up conversations about people's lives and opinions on all sorts of things. We’ll find ourselves asking what our own taste in wine might reveal. Open up a bottle and you’ll open up a person.

Brian and Jancis were drinking...

Cellier de St-Jean Vacqueras 2016 (14.5%) £8.99 - "Tannic, really substantial, very good vintage in the Rhone. Bottled in Beaujolais."

Domaine Chapel Julienas 2017 (14%) £25 - "Gloriously subtle, representing the Beaujolais revolution."

Campbell's Rutherglen Muscat (17.5%) £12.99 for a half bottle - "Australian Strong and sweet speciality made nowhere else in the world - very Christmassy."

Produced in Bristol by James Cook and Melvin Rickarby.

Jancis Robinson is on a festive mission to recommend wine to famous guests. The key is to find wines that match her guest's personality - both their public persona and more private self. After all, wines are a bit like people - some are bold and fruity, some elegant and refined; you’ll get aging smoothies and sharp young things. But what will she recommend to someone who was the hell-raising Vyvian in The Young Ones, performed punk music on folk instruments in The Bad Shepherds, has been in Star Wars and supports Exeter City?

Jancis and Adrian were drinking...

(Felix Solis) Vega Roja Tempranillo/Shiraz 2017 Vino de la Tierra Castilla (13%) £3.89 - "...light fresh red that's not over-sweetened or overripe. Sets a benchmark for really low-priced wines. Perfect for parties."

Sottimano Nebbiolo 2015 Langhe, PIedmont Italy (14%) £19.75 - "...a baby Barbaresco from younger, 15 year old, vines. Nebbiolo is the grape, Langhe the name of the hills where Barolo and Barbaresco are grown."

(Concha y Toro) Tesco Finest Limarí Valley Chardonnay 2017, Chile (13.5%) £10 - Pacific cooled new-ish region that produces wines that are so much better value than white Burgundy."
