video review: wine of the week

1st May 2011

Cuvée de Richard, VdP Comte Tolosan 2010, France
This white wine costs just £4.79 at full retail price: quite an acheivement for a really nice little fresh white, when tax and duty claims more than £2.50 before anything is put in the bottle. It comes from the Southwest of France, and on the nose has a real Sauvingon Blanc-like herbal lift, as well as a blast of lemony fruit. On the palate that mouth-watering zestiness continues, but there's enough peachy, soft, ripe fruit to ensure there's nothing tart or thin here: just a fresh, punchy and deliciously gluggable wine - especially at that price, and with a picnic-friendly 11.5% alcohol. More information and food matching ideas in the video. £4.79, Majestic.
