And so, as we come into summer, it's time to review a few wines and lines, and nowhere better to start than white Rhone, a category guaranteed to begin life on the main pages but end up on the bin end list

Colour of the urine of a rather dehydrated individual. Fortunately, not so much of that on the nose, just a whiff of acetate. Lovely, smooth texture. Opens up after an hour or so to reveal almost entirely secondary flavours, zero primary fruit and a finish that's dry, rich and quite moreish. you have to like old white Rhone to want to drink much of this, but could do wonders as a food match
