“How I love ….” Chateau Blomac is a fair pelt from Azille, I wonder where the grapes come from?
Competent slightly Oakey Chardonnay yet Characterless if you know what I mean.
The producing co-op is here
A blend of grapes from the Casablanca, San Antonio (62%) and Limari (38%) areas.
Despite my ABC prejudices, this wasn’t bad: buttery, slightly oaked structure, well presented, rich takeaway.
Ian & Jean served this at Ian’s launch of The Reluctant Cannibals in the Winding Stair bookshop.
Very dry, effervescent bang of an Apple Orchard in the mouth, very moreish. If the book is as good as this it’s a runaway, buy it now.
Lesley took me to Sicily in May and we ended the trip in Palermo.
These are some of the wines we had to sample there with Donald & Dale, who kindly travelled to spend the weekend with us.
Each as tasty as the last. Someone has to do it!
Catarratto (43%), Pinot Bianco (25%), Sauvignon (22%) and Traminer Aromatico (10%).
Crisp, Clean Finish. Lesley liked it. Tesco €9. More here.
Like most things that come from the Loire, delicious. Lovely fruit & Acid, Tesco (obviously) on offer @ €9
Difficult. Tasted like the look on Lesley’s face when she switches on R4 Longwave to discover they’re covering the Cricket! Avoid. In fairness, it was too old but should have aged better.
