Tatiana Gornostay's curator insight, May 16, 2013 2:45 PM

Official languages:From 1 January 2007 there are 23 official languages in the European Union:

 

Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish.

 

EU legislation is published in all the official languages, and you may use any of these languages to correspond with the EU institutions. In addition, of course, there are many other languages spoken in Europe, and this diversity of national and regional languages is something Europeans cherish. It is part of their rich cultural heritage. The European Commission runs programmes to promote language learning and linguistic diversity.

Chateau Lamothe de Haux Blanc │Red Wine Diva

Chateau Lamothe de Haux Blanc │Red Wine Diva | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

The Chateau Lamothe de Haux Blanc 2011 is made in the traditional Bordeaux style with a blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semmilon, and 20% Muscadelle.  Even though the origins for this wine date back centuries, white Bordeaux went out of vogue for several years as red blends became more affordable to the every day wine drinker.  However, in more recent years, white wines have come back stronger than ever and have reclaimed their place in the wine world.

Excellent Summer Wine: 2012 Colle Stefano - Verdicchio di Matelica DOC

Excellent Summer Wine: 2012 Colle Stefano - Verdicchio di Matelica DOC | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

The 2012 Colle Stefano Verdicchio di Matelica is an outstanding white wine from the Marche, Italy. Colle Stefano is an organic winery from Central Italy. The winery that is located in Matelica, which is part of the Marche region, has dedicated itself to the production of just one white wine. Their annual production of 80.000 bottles of Verdicchio di Matelica DOC is rather small. I have previously reviewed the 2011 vintage of the Colle Stefano Verdicchio di Matelica. Follow this link to read that review. The Verdicchio from Colle Stefano is a regular winner of the 3 glasses Gambero Rosso award.

Speaking to the drinks business during primeurs week in Bordeaux, Mau said: “I think rosé can be a serious wine and Bordeaux can make serious rosé.

“I’m very pleased with my first vintage. We need to change people’s perceptions and prove that Bordeaux has the capability to produce elegant rosés.”

Renowned for its mineral whites, Château Brown in Pessac-Léognan released its inaugural 2012 rosé onto the international market this month.

Do you know the "Bordeaux Clairet AOC" ?

Not to be confused with British word "Claret" meaning "full bodied red Bordeaux", the Bordeaux clairet is a "rosé on steroids" according Nick Stephens http://goo.gl/BF2zx

Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno 2010

Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno 2010 | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

80% Sangiovese and 20% Montepulciano from Rosso Piceno, Marches, Italy. Made from Organic grapes.
From the winery:
"The characteristics of this wine are its typical deep ruby colour, vinous bouquet and dry harmonic taste. It is produced from only the best Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes, and mellowed in oak barrels. It is a wine which is at its best served at room temperature to accompany all kinds of roast meat and game.
13.0% Alcohol"
Today's wine comes from Rosso Piceno which is the largest DOC of the Marches region. It is also the baby brother to one of our very favorite red blends, the 2008 Saladini Pilastri Pregio del Conte - Montepulciano Plus Aglianico Equals Love
The 2010 Saladini Pilastri Rosso Piceno has a simply wonderful, inviting bouquet that begins with a delightfully strong aroma of plum and dark berries plus a little mint and a few earthy notes. The wine tastes beautiful, smooth, fruity, dry and absolutely delicious. It features tons of luscious fruit that makes your mouth go "wow", soft tannins and a fabulous mouthfeel. The flavors are similar to the bouquet -- lots of dark berry fruit, a bit tart when tasting, plus some nice spice. The finish is soft, fruity and long. To say that I enjoyed this easy-drinking wine would be a huge understatement
