Jean-Paul Thévenet On Pète la Soif France 2016, £19, Roberson Wine Before the wine growers of Champagne worked out how to get bubbles into their wine around 400 years ago, their stock in trade was red wines. These unfizzy reds are still made in the region – pale, high-acid pinot noirs that come across like a brisker, more piercing version of burgundy – but the champenois never got into making sparkling reds.
The Argentinians may have changed the way we think of malbec, but here are three wines, mostly from Cahors, which show how France has reclaimed the grapeTaste the Difference Château Les Bouysses Cahors Malbec, France 2015 (£12, Sainsbury’s) The Argentinians have made malbec one of the great success stories of wine in the 2010s – the variously lush, chocolatey and perfumed reds they make from it now a fixture on every bottle-shop shelf and restaurant list.
Tesco Finest Hawkes Bay Syrah, New Zealand 2016 (£10) Why do some winemakers put syrah on the label and others shiraz when the two names refer to the same grape variety? Like most things in wine, it’s a decision that can be driven by aesthetics, marketing, or a bit of both.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
