  • Chateau Lamothe-Vincent Bordeaux Superieur Heritage Red

    The classic Bordeaux blend, of course, is Cabernet/Merlot, and here we have a classic indeed, but with 80% Merlot. Very St-Emilion-esque! Multiple-Gold-Medal winner, this “Heritage” cuvee has been aged in French oak barrels for 12 months and is quite simply as typical a claret as you could wish for at a very affordable price. Drink now to 2024.

    Gutsy and very intense soft red, yet good acidity makes this a great food wine….

  • Le Grenache dans le Peau by Jeff Carrel

    Big, soft, creamy tannins….I’ve got you under my skin….15.5% of lovely Grenache, which, by the way, is the predominant grape variety in a Chateauneuf du Pape….just saying….

  • Laurent Miquel Chateau Cazal Viel Vieilles Vignes

    Classic Languedoc blend of old vines Syrah for the grip and colour and fruit, Grenache for fruit and Mourvedre for perfume. It’s big and dark and 15% alc. A year in 2 and 3 year old oak barrels to soften it out so it’s both great with food or on its own. 91 Parker Points. Drink now to 2025

  • Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

    Selected from the best parts of the vineyard, this is a blend of Syrah, Carignan and Mourverdre. Each varietal is kept apart and aged in 500 litre oak barrels for 12 months. Only then do they decide upon the final blend. Once made, the finished wine is aged for yet another 12 months in those same barrels before bottling. Only 10% of the barrels are new wood, so there’s no “in your face ” oakiness here!
    Diane only releases this wine if she feels it is up to her highest standards of quality. So, no 2002 vintage ‘ it was all sold off in bulk to the ‘négociants’. The 2003 vintage was a cracker. No 2004 vintage either; that, too, was not good enough, the 2005, 2007 and 2009s brilliant…as was the 2011.
    And then along came the equally scrumptious 2103, and the super 2015 and now the fab 2016. What more can I say? Drink now to 2026 (really!)

  • Domaine l’Abbé Dîne Côtes du Rhône Villages 2014 Vintage

    Very, very delicious, spicy red made from 80% Grenache, 60 year-old vines. This Côtes du Rhône Villages is intensely perfumed, spicy, peppery, mouthwateringly-satisfying, and better than any Chateauneuf du Pape under £20 in my humble opinion! Good firm tannins make it a great food wine.  As Nathalie, the owner puts it; “Le millésime 2014  est dans la souplesse et le velours. Très bons.”

  • Brunelli Ripasso “Pa’Riondo”

    This is a serious contender for the Hughes Family Turkey Dinner Red.

    Rich, complex but very silky textures make this a delight. The Ripasso technique consists in refermenting a Valpolicella on the sugars and yeast-rich grape skins of the area’s top wine, Amarone.

    This results in the wine becoming full-bodied, with a great concentration of colour and perfume.Corvina Veronese 65%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 10%.

  • Felline Primitivo di Manduria

    Based on the huge popularity of “Fellone” I thought we should have a closer look at the Primitivo grape. Here’s one of four more, each with a distinct “terroir”. What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one is distinctive due to the red soil of the vineyards. Aged for six months in French oak.

What’s the Italian for “terroir”, I wonder? This one  is distinctive due to the calcareous white soil of the vineyards. Aged for nine months in French oak.
