FC31121 FC31121 Fitou, Domaine Jones 2014

Fab Fitou. A crunchy spicy tightly-packed youthful cannonade of blueberry spice … a gem … from Domaine Jones, one of the best wineries in the region. - Olly Smith

FC31251 FC31251 Cahors, Château du Cèdre 2012

Perhaps the most famous of the south western appellations, Cahors lies to the north of Gaillac in the Lot Valley around the beautiful medieval city from which it takes its name. In its 14th-century heyday, its famously dark, strong “black” wines were more highly prized than those of Bordeaux. Its recent revival owes rather a lot to the Argentinians, who’ve made a speciality of Cahors’ red grape variety, malbec, a style that has been one of the UK wine trade’s biggest hits of recent years. Today’s Cahors malbecs have some of the power of both Argentina and those antique black wines. But they are a little more sinewy, with the best, such as Château de Cèdre’s, offering a floral lilt to leaven the meaty, meat-friendly richness. - David Williams

IT22231 IT22231 Dragon Langhe Bianco, Luigi Baudana 2015

A sensational white from Italy’s northern Langhe region, this is ever so slightly perfumed on the nose with a searingly dry, complex finish. A shoo-in for those days when you are gathered round a bowl of steaming seafood pasta. - Will Lyons

IT22331 IT22331 Chianti Rúfina Riserva, Villa di Vetrice 2011

A mature, ready-to-drink Chianti that feels warming and autumnal. It smells slightly smoky, with a gamey, earthy character and a hint of dark chocolate. There is black cherry and a very dry feel on the palate. This will pair perfectly with heavy game dishes such as roast pheasant. - Will Lyons

SA11211 SA11211 The Foundry Grenache, Stellenbosch 2014

Talented Cape winemaker Chris Williams’s Rhône-inspired grenache is perfectly pitched, offering a lively succulence of blackberry and raspberry combined with a nip of tannin and hints of peppery spice and wild herb. - David Williams

SP12111 SP12111 Cruz de Piedra Garnacha, Calatayud 2015

Groovy grenache. Underfloor heating for the price of a tea light. Superbly warming. - Olly Smith

SP11971 SP11971 Setze Gallets Garnacha-Monastrell, Valencia 2014

Full-flavoured, fruity and with a level of class that belies its price, this is perfect winter comfort wine. From the sunny climes of Valencia in Spain and aged in amphorae, this red combines the dense dark fruit of monastrell with the rich liveliness of old vine garnacha. - Heather Dougherty

GE9411 GE9411 Grauburgunder, Louis Guntrum 2015

Grauburgunder is a variety we have all drunk - it is the German name for Italy's pinot grigio. This version is far removed from the typical Italian: it is opulent with Turkish delight and exotic spices. Brilliant value. I would have it with a roast chicken. - Hamish Anderson

CM16391 CM16391 Marquise d'Alesme, Margaux 2009

Grab this fragrant, cedar and laurel leaf-scented silky star from a great vintage. Third-growth Margaux claret at its finest. - Jane MacQuitty
