video review: wine of the week

4th April 2010

Caves Saint-Pierre, Gigondas 2007, France
Actually, there are a pair of Wines of the Week this week: both from Caves Saint-Pierre, one a straightforward, juicy and fruity Côtes-du-Rhône from 2008 that's in Tesco, Somerfield and Sainsbury's for around £6.00, and this superior Gigondas from the great Rhône vintage of 2007, that's over twice the price. Both would be good partners for new season lamb, but the Gigondas offers a much deeper, more intense wine experience with its meaty and peppery edges to beautifully focused red fruits making it the more satisfying wine of the two, budget permitting. £12.99, Tesco.
