Wine O’Clock Wines
The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Clos Floridene Graves Blanc 2016 Bordeaux, France
My current obsession with oaked white Bordeaux shows no sign of abating and this is a top notch example! So whilst £19 might seem like a lot of money to spend on a bottle of wine, per 125ml glass it is only just over £3. The blend is 51% Sémillon, 47% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle and the wine is waxy and citrussy with notes of grapefruit, lemon, spice and blossom. Long, lovely and a wine to linger over. Enjoy with salmon or chicken.
Réserve de Pizay Beaujolais-Villages 2018 France
Beaujolais (made from the Gamay grape) is very much in trend at the moment and this gorgeous Beaujolais-Villages is one of the nicest I have tried for a very long time! It's a lovely youthful colour and bursting with mulberry, blueberry and compote flavours. Pure, fresh, unoaked and extremely delicious and drinkable (only 135 alc). I really recommend this and only £8 to boot! Enjoy with everything from roast chicken, sausages and stuffed peppers.
