White's Wine: Some terrific bottles this EasterBy Stuart White

Morrisons have slashed eight of their classic wines down to just £6 for Easter.
According to the supermarket, it is their busiest time for wine sales after Christmas.
The deal will run until Easter Sunday so it’s a good excuse to get stocked up on wines which the Morrisons team have picked to reflect the typicity – how a wine should taste – of some of the world’s most famous regions. As far as supermarket promotions go, this is definitely one of the better ones.
From Bordeaux is the Lussac St Emilion 2007 (down from £11.99) – plum and black fruits with a silky finish of decent length. A tip on working out how much a bottle should cost is to count the seconds you can still taste after swallowing – each second should equal £1.
The Chablis Bertrand Capdevigne 2008 (from £9.99) is fresh and crisp – Chardonnay at its best from this famous French cool climate region.
Burgundy’s Maurice et Fils Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2008 (from £9.99) is elegant Pinot Noir while the big and bold Australian Buckingham Reserve Shiraz 2006 (from £7.99) is at the other end of the scale.
You can also get a Rioja, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre white and rich Rhone red all at the bargain price of £6.
