  • Abbotts & Delaunay Merlot – Sorry, out of stock

    Lovely soft Merlot from the south of France yet with firm structure making it equally good on its own or with food. Has good spice and might be mistaken for a claret if served blind!

  • Les Darons by Jeff Carrel

    Les Darons by Jeff Carrel

    Big, soft red, yet good acidity makes this a great food wine as well as one to drink on its own. A great example of southern french red wine, bursting with peppery tannins and earthy fruit.

  • Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    Anarkos Rosso di Puglia

    The label is attention-seeking, as is the bright red plastic cork (not my favourite closure, I must admit, but the wine insisted I buy it! The wine has attitude and is a provocative one, railing against the plight of the region (see their website). The region reminds me of the Languedoc in France – loads of rubbish wines but increasing numbers of fanatics making really top wines as they should be made. This was one of my favourite winery visits af the last few years. The wine is made from a blend of the local varieties Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia Nera and should be consumed in conspiratorial bars in the south of Italy with huge helpings of pasta.

    Previous vintages recommended; Recommended in The Daily Telegraph: “another one of Mark Hughes’ brilliant finds. Absolutely delicious blend of Primitivo, Negro Amaro and Malvasia. Lush and plush like velvet, also juicy, scented, intense, rich brimming with the smell of violets, deep purple plums and bitter cherries. Such a joy!
    Recommended by Oz Clarke as one of his 250 best wines of 2012: “an excellent example of how southern Italian reds are starting to express their own fabulous originality. It’s bulging with youth and it’s soft, yet tempered by a nice edgy bitterness.”

  • La Bette Cotes du Roussillon Villages Red by Jeff Carrel

    Big, deep colour, good grip due in part to 65% Syrah in the blend but also to Jeff’s preferred style of reds which retain those firm tannins and acidity making them great food wines.

  • A Vue de Nez (no added sulphur) by Jeff Carrel Organic Red

    Firstly – organic and with no added sulphur. Secondly – it’s a lovely smooth and fruity expression of grassy Cabernet Franc with a dollop of Syrah to beef it up. Also it has a clutch of Gold Medals and 90/100 from American Wine Guru Robert Parker.

  • 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.”

  • Domaine Métairie d’Alon “Solaire” Pinot Noir 2015

    Top Pinot Noir made by a Burgundian in the south of France. The part of the vineyard called “Solaire” was identified as best for Pinot Noir, so that’s what they planted there 17 years ago. The vines are mature and producing a remarkable Pinot Noir. dare I say more Nuits St Georges than Cotes de Beaune! The organically grown grapes were hand picked and then aged for nine months in oak barrels.

  • Fellone Primitivo di Puglia

    Fellone Primitivo di Puglia

    Maybe one for sipping into the early hours after all your virtual guests have switched-off……

    If you thought Anarkos was good, then here’s his big, big brother! The knockout favourite wine at last year’s Christmas tastings in Gerrards Cross and Presteigne.
    Simply put, this red wine is delicious and if ever you doubted you would spend over £20 a bottle on a red wine from southern Italy, then doubt no more.

    Drink now to end 2022.
