Wine Tasting Note: Château Plain-Point Blanc, 2004, South West France.
Snapped up at Oddbins for £8.99.
It’s seems the perfect summer wine – crisp acidity with appley, wet stone flavours and an intriguing unripened-strawberry finish… an edge of citrus… a splash of herbs combining into a medium bodied whole. The deep colour of Gros Manseng and a complex aroma. Alcohol 12%. With the goat’s cheese it was a fine match; although it classed slightly with the sweetness from the quince jelly. I imagine a slightly sweeter Chenin Blanc from the Loire might have worked just a little better. Worked rather nicely with a selection of bruschetta too.
