Wine of the mo: Ancien Comté white Grenache

L’Ancien Comté Grenache blanc 2010 (13%) - very nice mix of “estery” pear and exotic pineapple with milky yeast-lees edges, zesty lively finish vs attractive bit of weight. Round of applause to Mont Tauch co-op winery in the Fitou highlands for understanding oak fermentation/ageing and a dry white wine that doesn’t taste of it. Great with fish & chips too. 2 (see below for explanation of my "new" rating system.) £7.95 Jeroboams, London.
