I really appreciate how a good sommelier can make an excellent dinner even more memorable. At a previous (and dare I say excellent) dining experience at Tom Aikens the sommelier recommended Rémy Gresser's Brandhof Muscat with fish.
While searching for a UK source for this wine I learned that I am apparently gifted with a special understanding of this kind of wine (or perhaps wine in general), as the wine merchant wrote to me: "The Muscat is essentially a restaurant wine, very few people understand dry Muscat, like you."
Well then, what is it all about? Elderflower, actually. Both nose and mouth give you a clean, fresh sensation of elderflower, combined with a little honey and peaches. A wine that feels very light and almost evaporates from the glass. An excellent summer wine and also great with fish (at least lighter fish with fruit-based sauces).
