Wine: Something for the weekend
Saturday 17 December 2011
2010 Crux Gisborne Chardonnay
Fresh and aromatic with melony undertones and a touch of honey on the aftertaste – a sort of mini-Mâcon in New Zealand with extra maritime zing. £4.99, down from £9.99, Morrisons, until 1 January
2002 Château Grivière, Médoc, Cru Bourgeois
At its peak now with a vanilla and juicy blackcurrant quality tinged with liquorice spicy undertones and finishing mellow and dry. Traditional mature claret, none the worse for it. £11.99 or buy 2 = £8, Majestic
2010 Catena Chardonnay, Mendoza, Argentina
Rich buttered fudge flavours cut by fresh acidity, an intense Andean chardonnay with a restrained, nutty element and judiciously handled oak. Fresher, drier and fruitier than the oaky style of yore. £11.99, Waitrose
