For me I guess red is my fave but I love chilled Chardonnay on a summer's evening at the bottom of the garden. I know it's sacriledge but occasionally Mrs RB and I like to put an olive stuffed with an almond in the glass.

Drink the wine then eat the olive and almond. Yum!

However, I also like a fine white Burgundy. I have just splashed out a little on a nice bottle of Chassagne Montrachet and I'm trying to think up an excuse to drink it. (I know I really don't need one but it is a little on the pricey side.

Otherwise, big reds, Australian, South African and almost anywhere. I love Meerlust from S.A. and some of their Cabernets and blends are just SO BIG!

Also Barolo when I fancy a little treat. Wolf Blass from Australia do some nice fat reds too.

You can't beat Amarone della Valpolicella. Not just the ordinary Valpolicella - the Amarone is something else - it's made from sun dried grapes so a really smooth and intense damson flavour. It's worth the £10 a bottle, believe me.

Chassagne Montrachet is great! Pouilly Fuisse as I've already mentioned is also good. RB... Tried the Louis Jadot one?

I slept 12 hours last night after one glass (after 10 miler!) I'm steering clear!
