PETER GROGAN heads for the Napa Valley 'the Monaco of the wine world'. Grogan learns that the average bottle price at the Groezinger wine merchant in Yountville is 39, and enjoys a 140-a-head meal at The French Laundry. He says: 'The best of the big names Ridge Montebello, Dominus and Shafer Hillside Select are made in the image of modern claret. Even at today's exchange rate, however, Bordeaux offers better value.' Recommendations include 2003 De Loach Pinot Noir (6.95; The Wine Society); 2003 Avila Pinot Noir (9.99; Oddbins); and 2002 Wente Chardonnay (5.59; Waitrose).
