    A modest Medoc second wine from Begadan (Chateau l'Argenteyre) this product is typical of the region. Cassis, cherry and roasted coffee greet the nose with the entry dominated by more red currant. Body is slightly thin with slightly coarse tannin (this is after all a second wine). not bad for the price. 86 points.

    This very modest white from the mouth of the Rhone is made from a combination of typical grape varieties of the Val du Rhone. Pepper is evident on entry along with tropical fruit such as pineapple and pear. This wine has a slight hardness associated mostly with youth, but is tasty and an excellent bargain - having been reduced by half price by Gall of Amsterdam. 85 points.

    Great raspberry scent on this Touraine wine with similar red berry flavours on entry. The wine is somewhat light and cheerful - perfect for drinking alone or with light meat dishes. Excellent price - especially for downtown Paris. 86 points.

    This wine was purchased in The Hague to augment the closure of the day spent in Amsterdam. It is about 80% Grenache and exudes the aroma of crushed red currant, cherry whips and Kirsch. A bit untamed on the palate but full of aforesaid red fruit and gentle tannin. Worthy. 89 points.

    This large Medoc estate at Begadan (350 ha) has produced a fine cabernet-based claret with a full orchestral retinue of tradition flavours including blackberry, tar and cigar tobacco. Grainy tannin on the long finish suggests further bottle aging is a good bet. 88 points.

    A Marks and Spencer selection purchased in Bruxelles. This Touraine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc with a musk and smoke nose typical of the region; flavour is dominated by musky grass with a salty finish. Very good value and recommended with fish or seafood. 88 points.

    This nice little dry Prosecco (not really traditional - but more in the modern vein, it seems) has a good lemon nose and white toast and lemon palate with no bitterness on the finish - which is a pleasant surprise. This is the beer or wines - except from certain select areas (Valdobbiadene, exempli gratia, vinum pucinum Galliae mihi). If you can purchase at under 15 dollars US, it is a bargain and delicious on hot summer nights. 87 points.

    This decent Muscat-like wine from the Tarnave-Jidvei region of Transylvania, Romania is made from the Fetească Albă grape - a local variety. It has a peachy nose with some surprising acidity - given the grape's reputation. Reasonably balanced with a slightly stem-like finish. Good value - if you can find it - and a bit of a conversation piece. 85 points.

    This well-priced aged, oaked Semillon from the Hunter Valley in NSW is in an older style, but remains its delicious self; for an 8-year old wine, there is a bright, wildflower nose with a hint of dandelion - very inviting. On the palate we receive a hefty dose of lanolin and wood (but not of the dull variety) with pineapple, kiwi, grapefruit. It finishes slightly salty and intriguing. A steal. 90 points.

    The wines of British Columbia just keep getting better - this beautiful-to-look-at copper Pinot Gris effuses a flowery, gooseberry and apple nose. Wonderful - and just waiting for the seafood and the patio. There is a touch of amaritudo (bitterness) on the finish, but this is good - reflective of the grape - especially in its French incarnation. Nicely priced, fresh and worthwhile. 88-89 points.
