From the consistent Chilean brand, this aromatic dry white displays the telltale rose-petal aromas of the Alsace grape with traces of lychee and Turkish delight, and a refreshingly dry and pleasing finish.

Under a Tenner: 2004 The Gum Sauvignon Blanc, Starvedog Lane, £7.99, down from £9.99 until 30 July, Marks & Spencer

Dry aromatic white with zesty, gooseberry fruit and almost Sancerre-like minerality. This herbaceous sauvignon blanc makes a tongue-tingling change from Aussie chardonnay.

Splash Out: Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut NV Champagne, £19.99, Waitrose

Treat yourself to the house champagne at Le Gavroche (for a little less money). This pure chardonnay fizz from the grand cru village of Le Mesnil in the Côte des Blancs boasts a rich toasty flavours and ethereally foamy mouthfilling mousse.
