Blason Montagny 2008, £8.03, Sainsbury’s Although prices can be a big put-off there are not many whites that can match the subtle taste of a well-made Burgundy.

They’ve clearly tried to pare down the cost of this one literally penny by penny to end up 3p over the £8 mark — but it’s worth it.

Oldish Chardonnay vines in the soil of Montagny add a hint of steel to flavours of apple and pears with a little oak and spice.
