There is a knack to critically assessing wine, and this video below is well worth a watch if you’re keen to go beyond just chucking it down your neck (although, admittedly, I still find myself doing that when I get that late Friday afternoon craving). Here, Master Sommelier Ronan Sayburn is tasting our well loved Château Bauduc Bordeaux Blanc.
