From the Queen's Head, via the chip shop, back to Spitty HQ. Something required to wash down the excessively tom-ketch and mayo doused chips. They taste good though. Damn good. A red plucked from the rack is the second sample (read about the other here) received from Domaine Lauroux an English run estate in Gascony. A quarter retained for a tasting note on the morrow as we tuck into the food, debating whether to shove Black Books or Black Adder into the DVD player.

Wine Tasting Note: Domaine de Lauroux Rouge, 2003, Vin de Pays de Cotes du Gascogne, France.
Available from Planet of the Grapes for £5.
An impressive nose, having had several hours breathing in the bottle, rosehips, peppery berry fruits... not replicated on the palate though. This has a full spicy flavour with black fruit flavours. The blend of Merlot (40%), Cabernet Sauvignon (45%) and Cabernet Franc (15%) is a classic Bordeaux mix and here produces a nice wedge of fruit and an easy drinking palate. Red fruits burst open on the finish. Cracking good value. Alcohol 12%.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
