Wines for the week-end 28/04/2007 (TNB)

  • Chateau d'Angludet 1985 I've just been reading Hugh Johnson on Claret, and this is an excellent example of proper examples being light, appetising and moreish while still being complex and interesting. Lovely, fragrant, bright fruit; cedary and with good length. Top *** (almost more)

  • Tesco Champagne 1er cru I think this "won" some tasting by Which magazine or some similar non-authority last year. Perhaps it has changed, or perhaps it hasn't and my tastes are rather different. Oddly confected and cloying - I really don't much enjoy drinking this. *
