RICHARD EHRLICH has two things to share with his readers this week. First, the news that Waitrose is in the midst of a large-scale French wine promotion, which involves taking over the central portions of its selling space' and filling them with French wine. According to Ehrlich, the top bargain to be found is the own-label Blanc de Noirs (down to 13.99 from 15.99). The second part of this column is a giveaway: three pairs of tickets to the Chelsea flower show courtesy of Laurent-Perrier. A few other recommendations to make the most of at Waitrose include 2004 Pouilly Fum, Jean Vincent (7.99 from 10.69), which has fine mineral flavours' and 2004 La Bgude Chardonnay (6.99 from 8.99) - an impressive, generously oaked but apple-fresh Chardonnay from the Limoux.'
