"I really need help understanding the differences between a £3 bottle and a £30 bottle".£27
re Graham's comments - if you wanna try a good white wine M&S are currently selling Chassange Montrachet for 30 quid a pop. It's not the finest example in the world - but it is pretty damn good and you know from M&S that you won't get good bottles and bad bottles. As many people will pay 25-30 pounds in a restaurant for a bottle of plonk - why not shell out for the good stuff at home once in a while. The M&S Barolo is a great example of an Italian Red. Most of the time I would prefer to get "a dine in for a tenner" and have 20 quid left in my pocket rather than spend 30 on just a bottle - but everyso often...
...and Red wine is healthier eh ?.. because of tannin and stuff ! ?
I do remember watching programmes such as food and drink and being astounded at the knowledge base and precision for which Oz Clarke and Jilly Goolden could not just describe the wine but also in blind tests always be able to identify the wine, region year etc from just one slurp !
