This is our new “Wine of the Week” feature where we recommend a good value (under €15) wine we’ve liked.

It’s always good to have your drinking choices confirmed by a respected member of the wine trade; and it has happened with our house white wine this year!

We’ve been drinking the Domaine de Pellehaut, Harmonie de Gascogne blanc 2009 for the past four or five months and enjoying it most thoroughly. It is uncomplicated, fresh and flavoursome and a perfect medium weight. The flavours are a bit lemony and appley with a light, stoney mineral twist and it drinks well on its own and with food. Being a blend of grapes it takes a little of the best of each to make an interesting wine, without being too full-on – this makes it a perfect  week night wine and a great one to entertain a group of friends.

Stephen Spurrier, Decanter magazine’s Consultant Editor, concurs in an admission in his December edition column. His house wine too!

We get ours from Mitchell’s Wine Merchants in Glasthule or the CHQ Building, IFSC for €9.95  which is a great price for such a versatile wine.
