Chris Wilson from Decanter selects some "seasonal stunners" to explore rich, textured white wines.
"Reds are the obvious go-to wines as the temperature drops and the sun dips below the horizon ever earlier, but this is a fine time of year to explore some of the richer, chewier white wines around too, from varieties including Marsanne, Roussanne, Chenin Blanc and Carricante.
These grapes – in blends or on their own, and often showing a little age – are the perfect foil for autumnal vegetables, stews, roasts and more, offering savoury, robust, forthright characters, development and a richness of body."
From Piedmont comes this intriguing white blend of Chardonnay (75%) and Nebbiolo, the latter made as a blanc-de-noir. It’s a heady, nutty wine that’s bold in character but has an undercurrent of freshness and salinity. Two years’ aging in old oak barrels bring a richness and caramel note to the tropical fruit freshness creating delicious balance and tension. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030 — 92 points

Chateau Rauzan Ségla, Ségla Margaux 2010
"Beautifully elegant fruit is present on the nose. Supple mid-palate and clear ageing ability as the tannins are still young. Acidity is well balanced, and there is real grip on the palate. Black fruits, liquorice and wet stone texture. (93 points)
