In the Loire valley is known as Gros Plant, in Spain (esp Catalonia) as Picapoll. This is good summer drinking. This is the new label for Tesco’s offering; is it better than Waitrose? Well yes… and no. No because it’s the identical wine from the same co-operative producer, but with a different label. And yes – because it’s £1 cheaper and at the moment is 20% off making it £5.60 a bottle – very good at that price – stock up.
