….but here’s a hot off the tasting-table wine tip that I haven’t even had chance to write up in the Telegraph yet. I’ve just waded home, soggy and windswept, from a small tasting of Majestic wines at their store in St John’s Wood. One of the reds was such a star (and so CHEAP) I couldn’t resist mentioning it straight away. It’s red, it’s softly easygoing and it’s called Mas de Montagnes Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2011 France (13.5%). It’s also £5.99 per bottle when you buy two. Now this is a neat price for such an extraordinarily drink-me little red (not so neat if you only buy one bottle for £8.99 but I know you wouldn’t be that daft). It’s from the Roussillon, a region that cosies up to the Spanish border down in the south of France and whose wines have a very Mediterranean feel – all fierce sun-hot air and dried herbs. Made from syrah, grenache and carignan, think of it like the ruffling warmth of a summer breeze wrapping itself reassuringly round you, a real antidote to floods and inside-out umbrellas. Now – off to dry out. Bon weekend everybody.
