Wine By Numbers - James Anderson's Numbers Collection

Three Languedoc wines from cricketer James Anderson available from Milton Sandford Wines

The Numbers Collection is a new range of wines that cricketer James Anderson has developed with Robert Vic Domaine Preignes Le Vieux in Beziers, Languedoc.

They are available in the UK through independent wine merchant, Milton Sandford Wines’ online wine store (www.winecellarclub.co.uk) price at £9.95.

There's little for the generalist not to enjoy here; pleasant, basic quaffers in a modern, ripe style. On the downside, they are uncomplicated and insubstantial.

They score better for marketing chutzpah - all are labelled "Reserve" and priced aspirationally.

Reserve Blanc 2014 Pays d'Oc floral with white stone fruit; toasty, fat and waxy but a little harsh.

Reserve Rosé 2014 vin de France full of ripe red berries, pleasantly substantial, mineral and rounded.

Reserve Rouge 2014 Pays d'Oc lifted perfumey berries; fresh and juicy with a supple texture

The rosé is the most interesting.
