Wine: Something for the weekend


Couch potato

2010 Tesco Finest Picpoul de Pinet

This inviting Southern French answer to muscadet is an attractive and fruity Mediterranean white with crisp appley flavours and a dry finish; just the ticket for shellfish with an R still in the month. £5.79, down from £7.29, Tesco

Dinner party

2010 Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Central Otago Pinot Noir

Berry tones underpinned by a juicy fruitiness whose seductive quality is framed by spicy oak and grip. In red Burgundy mode for under a tenner. £9.99, Sainsbury's

Splash out

2008 Saint Aubin 1er Cru, Domaine du Pimont

Classy white Burgundy with chardonnay richness finished with a nutty aftertaste. Beats the fine Puligny Montrachet at twice the price. £22, Marks & Spencer
