  • As a UK journalist, and Master of Wine, I discuss, criticise and recommend not the fine wine, the great vintages, the en primeurs, but the everyday, the bargain, the high volume.  I taste thousands of wines each year of low, mediocre and good quality, and, within perhaps 80 or 90 tasted at one supermarket or off licence tasting, will find perhap...
