Bordeaux

BORDEAUX: PLEASURES OF THE RIGHT BANK

A leisurely meander through the merlot-rich communes of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, in the company of six delectable wines selected by Head of Buying Tim Sykes. Look no further for smart buys, from rising star to grand cru, to replenish depleted claret stocks.

White Burgundy

WHITE BURGUNDY: APPROCHABLE AND AFFORDABLE

Instant gratification from the 2014 vintage, which is already delivering pure pleasure. Our rippling six-pack combines jawdropping value from the Mâconnais with clever finds from the Côte d'Or to keep faith with the January budget.

Beaujolais

CRU BEAUJOLAIS: SERIOUSLY CHARMING

The charm of 2014 is also apparent in Beaujolais, and the mouthwateringly fresh feel that underpins the juiciness of perfectly ripened gamay grapes. These are wines that have not only immediate appeal but time in hand to evolve. We focus on Fleurie, the most engaging of the ten crus, and longer-lived Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon, sourced from the likes of Jean-Marc Burgaud, Louis Boillot and Frédéric Burrier.

The Roussillon

THE ROUSSILLON: DOMAINE GAUBY, CALCE

Gérard Gauby calls his Calcinaires bottlings his 'village' wines, much as a prime grower in Puligny-Montrachet might, to describe a wine less grand than premier cru but one that wholly transcends the term 'entry-level'. The comparison is not a spurious one. Gauby's is one of the great domaines of the Roussillon, and of France. His 'grand cru' and one or two of his premiers are also included here.

The Sud-Ouest

THE SUD-OUEST: RAMONTEU AND BRUMONT

Despite our long-standing passion for them at The Society, Jurançon and Madiran remain an inexplicably dark corner of France. Henri Ramonteu of Domaine Cauhapé and Alain Brumont of Château Montus illuminate it with aromatic whites, thought-provoking reds and luscious sweet wines.

Small Wonders

SMALL WONDERS: FINE WINES AT £20 AND UNDER

An invigorating crop to restore the palate and gladden the heart, including scrumptious sauvignons, curiosities from Italy and a mouthwatering and gastronomic rosé. Members resolved to embrace a bit of adventure in 2017 should start here.

South Africa

SOUTH AFRICA: MILES MOSSOP 'MAX', STELLENBOSCH

Even if young Max Mossop wants to be a train driver instead of following in the footsteps of his father Miles, and grandfather Tony, his place in wine is assured on the label of this stylish and highly regarded Bordelais blend from Stellenbosch. We have six ages of Max on offer, to drink and to keep.

Italy

ITALY: HIDDEN GHEMME – AND GATTINARA

Tucked away in the foothills of the Alps, the 'two Gs' of Piemonte live in the shadow of its more famous Bs, Barolo and Barbaresco. Yet this can be nebbiolo to relish. After a long search and a lot of tasting, Sebastian Payne MW has found something special, in the fine family estate of Torraccia del Piantavigna, whose archives have been tapped for a rare opportunity to sample ten-year-old wines.

New Zealand

NEW ZEALAND: MOUTERE AND MATÉ

No need for two of New Zealand's greatest vineyards to go head to head. Complementing each other perfectly are fine pinot noir from Neudorf in Nelson and Kumeu's flagship chardonnay from the Auckland plot that bears the name of its founder, Maté Brajkovich. Just to introduce a little mischief, a new pinot noir from Kumeu lays down the gauntlet.

Germany

GERMANY: WEINGUT DÖNNHOFF, NAHE

A rare opportunity to get Helmut Dönnhoff's fragrant and mouthwatering 2014 rieslings into your cellar, though we predict they won't make it that far because they are hard to resist now. They can wait if you can, but don't wait too long to order them.

The Douro

THE DOURO: QUINTA DO PASSADOURO

The rise and rise of Douro reds, going from Port spin-off to assured table wine, brings welcome variety to the classical grapescape, as well as opening a new page on the dining menu from spice-roasted lamb to baked fish with herb crusts. They are also peerless with cheese (it's in their DNA, remember). This smart young estate does the honours.
