The Gyongyos Estate Chardonnay ( pounds 3.35), a Hungarian wine made by an Englishman and a team of Australians, was described as 'inoffensive and drinkable' by David Knights and 'smooth with some vanilla' by William Lyth. Its Bulgarian rival, Khan Krum Chardonnay ( pounds 2.99), was 'bloody disgusting - 0 out of 10', according to Sue Sturton. 'I wouldn't drink this even if I were drunk' was another comment.
The Chais Baumiere ( pounds 3.99) Cabernet Sauvignon, Vin de Pays D'Oc, by the Australian Hardy Wine Company, was given '10 out of 10 for flavour' by Andrew Girvani.
Its opposite number, Sainsbury's Medoc ( pounds 3.95), was 'weak', 'thin', and 'watery' to most of the panel. But Lianne Belton said: 'I think it's great - I like all red wines.'
