Perfect Summer Red!

Best Pinot Noir on the Planet

At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, the new vintage of Soli has amazed us yet again. Each year it pulls off the trick of reminding us again how brilliant it is. Much like the Harry Potter series or Lord of the Rings, each vintage provides its own unique story within a greater narrative - that of a wine punching above its weight in a quite extraordinary way. Numberless blind tasting among friends and trade colleagues have demonstrated how it can stand head to head with Pinot Noirs from Burgundy at twice or three time the price, while the rave reviews from critics (Jancis Robinson’s Wine of the Week; Critics’ Choice at the Sommelier Wine Awards, etc) similarly attest to the quality you get in the bottle from this Bulgarian pinot!
SOLI and ‘EM’ Pinot Noir, from the same producer, Miroglio, have managed to open the gateway to some of the UK’s most tightly controlled restaurants wine lists. In fact, only the other day I was celebrating a family birthday at the Michelin-starred La Trompette, where it dextrously handled our various main courses, haddock, suckling pig and lamb.
The vintages from 2006 have all been good to very good indeed, but 2015 is the most convincing yet. Like France and Italy it was blessed with perfect conditions to make beautifully balanced wine. The wine is drinking really well now, but as we’ve found with the best of the previous vintages, it can age well for another 6 or 7 years, showing the tertiary flavours of Pinot Noir.
