Garlic and Wine James Gillick
This stunningly simple painting makes me want to pick up the bowl and slurp the wine. The darkness and redness suggests a young wine from thick-skinned grapes, something both densely fruity and interesting chewy. And something that would work well with lots of garlic.
A couple of early autumn wines that could be drunk from a bowl and enjoyed with a plate of garlicky food:
Tesco's Finest Côtes Catalanes Carignan 2011 (£6.99)
Very, very red, with a rustic, black pepper nose. This is a firm, fruity wine that's best drunk with food (and chilled slightly before serving).
Taste the Difference Crozes-Hermitage 2010 (£9.49) from Sainsbury's
Good, young Crozes-Hermitage should look like the wine in the painting, and this does. It has the distinctive C-H perfume mixed with green pepper, and is very good, textbook stuff.
