Wine Tasting Note: Arnaud Lassalle Pouilly Fume, 2005, Loire, France.

Wine Tasting Note: Arnaud Lassalle Pouilly Fume, 2005, Loire, France.
Waitrose £7.99
A bargain at £3 off the regular price. Combining all the hallmarks of a great, punchy, nervy, Loire Sauvignon – citrus, minerality, and crisp acidity. Grass, currants, citrus fruits all edge with vibrant acidity and a fruity finish. A star with a tuna and cannellini bean salad but any fish or goats cheese dish would be great.
Scribblings Rating – 90/100
Tuna and Cannellini Bean Salad: From an old Waitrose Seasons leaflet. A drained tin of Cannellini beans mixed with a tin of tuna, slices of red onion, diced cucumber and quartered radishes. Topped with fresh basil, a drizzle of olive oil and a little balsamic.

    Check out my Pouilly-Fumé review. I found a different one at the same price at Waitrose.

    Some PR bod from Waitrose has asked that we are made aware that “This wine was reduced from £10.69 to £6.99. This offer finished on April 29th. The current price is £10.69″. Knock off 2 points for the higher price.
