Wines on tasting at Vineking, West Road, 14th January
2014 Chateau Mathiot, Bordeaux, France
I was watching Rick Stein's "Long weekend in Bordeaux" recently and saw him eating a deliciously rare entrecote washed down with a glass of claret. Now, claret does not have to be expensive to be enjoyable and this basic example can offer an affordable way into the world's most prestigious wine region. These entry level wines are vinified to be drunk young with lots of bright vibrant fruit and as such are a great accompaniment to most plates of food.£11.99 per bottle,
2 for £20,
6 for £60,
12 for £110
2015 Bourgogne Chardonnay Domaine Fournillon
After tasting through around a hundred samples of red and white burgundy from the '15 vintage earlier this week I thought this should be the wine to show. It will just give a glimpse of the excellence of this vintage.
Unoaked, this wine is all about fresh fruit flavours with a hint of the classic gun flint so often found in white Burgundy.
£13.99 per bottle,
2 for £25,
