video review: wine of the week

20th October 2013


Marks & Spencer, Saint Mont Blanc 2012, France
The Plaimont Cooperative makes this wine for M&S, and they truly are masters of conjuring these fresh, limpid and zingy whites from the Saint Mont terroir in South West France, the wines still retaining a touch of steely reserve. This blend of the indigenous Gros Manseng, Arrufiac and Petit Courbu has a vibrant peach and passionfruit nose, with loads of freshness and crunch from grapeftuit and lime, and a touch of green leaves. The palate has real cut - like freshly sliced pink grapefruit straight from the fridge - with again that hint of more exotic peach and pineapple leaving this dry but easy to drink. For more information and food matching suggestions, please watch the video. £7.99, Marks & Spencer.
