What the OLN imbibers have been sampling recently

The Pilgrimage

Mencia Do Bierzo 2006

Distributor: Guy Anderson Wines

Plums and black cherry on the nose

followed by more cherries and lovely

chocolate notes on the palate. EE

Château Tour Prignac

Médoc 2004

Oddbins £8.99

This Merlot /Cabernet Sauvignon blend has red fruits, vanilla and sweet spice on the nose. Tannins are soft, making this very much a fruit-driven Bordeaux for drinking now. EE

Adnams White Burgundy 2006

Domaine Talmard, Mâcon, Burgundy £6.99

Distributor: Adnams

Apple and lemon on the nose with a hint of creamy toastiness. Good body, nice balance of fruit flavours and butteriness. A real bargain.CB
