FC29851 FC29851 Picpoul de Pinet, Domaine Félines-Jourdan 2015

The assertive lemon acidity here leaves you in no doubt that the word 'picpoul' translates to lip stinger. This, however, is one of the best inexpensive versions I have tasted recently, with textured red apple depth, suggestions of perfume and spice but an attractive mineral base too. - Brian Elliott

FC30981 FC30981 Pinot Noir Haute Vallée de l'Aude, Domaine de Mouscaillo 2014

At Limoux in southern France, a south-facing exposure at 400m above sea level allows the pinot noir grape both to develop and retain its floral perfume. This juicy, sappy example has a black pepper piquancy amid sweet cherry and blackberry compote. It is fleshed out by ripe primary fruits, with typically modest tannins to focus attention on the fruit/ acid lines. Drink with: Warm, earthy green lentils. - Sally Easton

Outstanding … prime Prosecco. Creamier than many Proseccos - perfect for an aperitif. - Olly Smith

BU60111 BU60111 The Society's Exhibition Pouilly-Fuissé 2014

I tried this at the Love Wine Festival in Birmingham - what a super event - and fell in love. This is creamy and rich, but with a lightness and freshness, so perfectly balanced. Lovely peach and apricot, with hints of vanilla, you must try this. I've since bought a case. - Rob Price

US6611 US6611 The Society's Exhibition Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Made by Frog’s Leap winery, this is a dense, gravelly Napa cabernet with a savoury, slightly firm edge to the restrained blackcurrant fruit. There’s a bit of sweetness to the fruit, but also a pleasant savouriness and good acidity. - Jamie Goode

MD81 MD81 Individo Fetească, Château Vartely 2015

Feteasca neagra translates as black maiden and is a grape variety native to Moldova, though it is found in neighbouring Romania as well. Dark and succulent, it has a juicy freshness lifting its warming guts and would be really good with duck …Kate Hawkings

NZ8501 NZ8501 The Society's Exhibition New Zealand Chardonnay 2014

Made by the superb Kumeu River, whose name on a label is more or less a guarantee of an outstanding chardonnay. - Tom Cannavan

GR1051 GR1051 Synoro, Skouras 2010

This is an absolute beauty from Nemea in the Peloponnese, the large southern peninsula with Greece's greatest number of wine appellations. There's an array of satisfying flavours of cinnamon, cedar, herbs, dried and morello cherry fruit notes to enjoy. This is a fantastic price for a slice of top winemaking acumen ; the flavours ping, the quality sings. 40/40/20% cabernet franc, merlot and aghiorgitiko. Take a bow, George Skouras. If you are new to this winery, then you will be thunderstruck by the class here. From start to finish, immaculate. To enjoy it at its best, decant it an hour before drinking. Drink this Greek jewel with garlic and herb roast lamb or moussaka. An audience won't be hard to find. - James Viner

CH3141 CH3141 Bollinger La Grande Année 2005

I tasted this blind alongside many other famous-name vintage Champagnes and found it stupendously complex. It's an exceptional wine taken exclusively from 13 Cru sites, 95% of Grand Cru and 5% Premier Cru. Complete, ethereal and approachable, yet with a serious side and exemplary length., this is rich and compelling stuff that tastes of toasted hazelnuts, ginger, mandarin, stonefruit and melted butter on thick white toast. Pair with richly sauced lobster, grilled or seared scallops, cold game, fish and chips, oysters, or Rollright, an award-winning washed-rind cheese from Oxfordshire (which will appeal to fans of Reblochon). 70% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay. - James Viner
