Wine Tasting – October

We reached the end of our white wine summer comparisons as part of the year’s “New World, Old World” theme by tasting 4 wines made from the Chardonnay grape.  All of this month’s wines were from Majestic and prices are for their “Mix Six”.  The first two both came from South Africa.  They were “Trebuchet” 2017, ABV 13%, £6.74, which was the evening’s winner and “Majestic Loves” 2018, ABV 13.5%, £5.99 which came last.  The other two wines were a real white Burgundy – Cote Chalonnaise 2016 La Buxynoise, ABV 13%, £11.99 – which came a fairly creditable second place, though not quite so creditable when comparing the prices.  And the final wine was “Cuvee Dissenay” 2018, ABV 13.5%, £8.99 from the South of France, which was a fairly distant third place, scoring a number of zeroes.
