Criteria: an interesting wine (not too cheap) and one that you can enjoy with dinner or friends (not too expensive). And very good!
Jack's selection: Chateau de Rochemorin, Bordeaux
Dry white Bordeaux are terribly underrated so this month I've selected the Chateau de Rochemorin (12-16 euro). A white Bordeaux that is very good value. It has a very good balance with a touch (but not too much) of barrique ageing, fresh acidity and delicious citrus aromas, primarily lime. It is bone dry and very aromatic and will go excellently with both cheese, meat and fish. Anything from the classic combination with a chevre goat cheese to lighter meat dishes, or the more powerful fish dishes perhaps with a creamy sauce. In the shadow of stars like Haut-Brion and Domaine de Chevalier this wine gives you an affordable version of the same thing, but lighter of course. PS: If you keep it a few years it will get even better!
