A gros manseng
Yet another new grape for me.
This is a blend of gros manseng and sauvignon and at £4.99 from Majestic, or £3.99 if you buy 2, is excellent value for money. It has real intensity of aroma and flavour and is a well made wine. The producer Alain Brumont is well known for his heavywieght Madiran but shows he can produce a dry, fruity and very drinkable wine.
I've put it up on my Bottletalk list of wines.
