I was in need of a white to go in tonight's dinner - a take on Chicken Cacciatora (Hunters Chicken) from The Wine Lovers Cookbook by Brian St.Pierre. As most would end up in the dish I didn't want to spend too much but at the same time would want a glass or two while chopping carrots and tossing mushrooms about with careless abandon.

This wine, lurking at the bottom of an Oddbins shelf, looked OK. At £4.49 cheap enough and a funky label too; can't be bad.

Wine Tasting Note: Mosaique Chardonnay, 2004, Vin de Pays d'Oc, France.
£4.49 from Oddbins.
This is part of an own label range that offers a full gamut of varietals from the South of France - Sauvignon, Syrah, Viognier, Syrah Rosé and the like all in the £3.99/£4.99 range. This 100% Chardonnay is fine. Crisp acidity, plentiful quince and apple flavours, clean, fresh, a touch of oak. Drinkable if not terribly exciting. Good for a glug though.
Scribblings Rating - 86/100
