Joanna Simon turns her attention to the Castel/Oddbins/Nicolas saga in her column this week.  However she remains unconvinced by some of the ramifications of the takeover. "All French wines are now bought by Nicolas in Paris. This may sound sensible, but the effect has been depressing," she laments. Ignoring French offerings, Simon highlights the 2007 Pinot Grigio Red Hill Estate (£9.99, Oddbins) for its "lively, appley, nutty and mineral" notes.
