La Cote Blanche Macon Villages 2010, £7.99, Sainsbury's.

Another example of good value French wine, this time a classic white from a co-operative in Burgund.

Chardonnay is the grape and the flavour is crisp with strong apple and citrus tastes.

Alcohol is 13 per cent and you can enjoy a drink as good as many with posher pedigrees at twice the price.
