From an Asda press tasting to Bordeaux

Asda press tasting today was well attended. I bumped into Tim Atkin, Victoria Moore, Anthony Rose, Joanna Simon, Malcolm Gluck and Julia Harding. Also present (bizarrely) were Christine and Neil Hamilton. I was surprised just how drinkable Asda's half-dozen sub 3 wines were. I thought this was a category that had dried up. Philippa Carr MW has been doing some good work with the business end of her range.

I'm off to Bordeaux tomorrow for a couple of days, to see the harvest, and the forecast is good. Horridly early start, though! I'll have to catch the 05:06 train.

Jamie,
Nice photo of the leggie blonde. Was it just me that noticed where your camera's focal point was?

If I'm not mistaken that 'leggy blonde' is non other than The Sunday Times' Joanna Simon. Personally, I generally appreciate the female form when it is a little 'fuller'.

ASDA kills and wine tasting has been scientifically proven as a hoax. http://scienceblogs.com/cortex/2007/11/the_subjectivity_of_wine.php?
