Is there any point in investing in wine and buying a case en primeur? ANTHONY ROSE certainly thinks there is: I started picking up the odd case or two with the 1982 vintage and I've never looked back.' He concedes that the hype surrounding this year's Bordeaux vintage has driven up the prices more than usual, but he still thinks there are plenty of reasons to buy. He also encourages readers to give other countries a chance to provide a few cellar-worthy bottles: Young Burgundy, Rhne, German Riesling, Chianti Classico and, increasingly, wines from Australia, New Zealand and California can now be snapped up and left to mature, or broached early on.' Rose's top suggestion for a wine under a tenner is 2004 Tesco Finest Denman Semillon (7.99; Tesco).
