It’s white, from burgundy and 100% chardonnay. All good? Not quite… It’s £6.75 a bottle, however with the Tesco ‘buy 6, get 25% off’ deal it comes down to £5.06 a bottle. It even tasted pretty good. So what’s not to like? I woke up at 4am with a pounding headache – my wife 3 hours later. We both blamed this wine – and had drunk insufficient quantities to merit the suffering. Honestly. I put it down to additives, probably sulphates. This is the first wine I’ve seen with the new ‘AoP’ labelling which is replacing the ‘AoC’ and offers ‘protection’ to the regional producers.
Tasting notes: Pleasant chardonnay, fruity, citrussy.
