The Raisins Gaulois is fun incarnate – drinking this wine offers indecent pleasure. You have to like a cheekily-monickered wine with a cartoon label of a geezer swallowing a bunch of grapes (evidently taking his wine in tablet form). Gummy Gamay, do not pass go, do not collect tannin, a redcurrant jam jamboree which just manages to steer clear of sweetness by virtue of a thwack of liquorice on the finish. You’re madder than Mad Jack McMad if you don’t serve this well chilled.

Juicy red fruit - lovely! So light and lithe. Airy but complete.

Recipe:

Burgundy Burgundy, in the Cote d’Or, where the Pinot Noir grape reigns supreme in its famous reds. Think Nuits St Georges, Gevrey Chambertin, Vosne Romanee. Chablis, where the Chardonnay grape generally unoaked produces crisp citrusy white’s, Maconais for the softer Pouilly Fuisse and the Cote de Beaune where the greatest whites are produced in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet. From the reds expect elegance, ruby colour and good complexity. They are excellent with red meat and game. The whites range from rich buttery flavour through to crisp, steely tones. Great to accompany fish dishes or as an aperitif.
