Saturday 04 February 2012
2010 Saint Michel Blanc Perlé, Gaillac
A distinctive South-West blend of loin de l'oeil, muscadelle and mauzac, this dry white comes with a refreshing spritz (hence perlé) and a dry, citrus-crisp tang. Made for crab and scallops. £7.99, buy 2 = £6.99, Majestic
2009 Tamaya Reserva Syrah, Limarí Valley
Bright and aromatic in Crozes-Hermitage vein, a veneer of nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness coats the blackberry fruit of this north coastal Chilean syrah. Around £9.99, Avery's of Bristol, Spirited Wines, Harvey Nichols
2006 Terre di Priori Brunello di Montalcino
There are complex secondary characters to the sweet-and-sour cherryish sangiovese fruit, while smooth tannins make this a satisfying red at a relatively reasonable price for Brunello. £18.99, tesco.com
