The Society's Exhibition St Aubin Blanc

This has to be one of the best-value white burgundies around. It is from a fabulous producer and wonderful vintage that combines power and definition. Initially pretty, its floral nose gives way to the taste of lemons and a whisper of spicy oak. Line up a roast chicken for this. - Hamish Anderson

Viña Leyda Las Brisas Leyda Pinot Noir 2012

Weekend Dinner Party Wine of the Month: Refined, juicy… with bags of inviting strawberry and bright cherry fruit above a long, slightly spicy finish. In short, downright delicious, and an excellent and versatile weekend treat at the table. Unadulterated drinking pleasure with ham, pork, roast chicken and pheasant as well as simply grilled or seared salmon. - James Viner

The Society's Chilean Chardonnay, Limarí

Must-try White Wine of the Month: Refreshing and affordably crisp cool-climate chardonnay. It's a delicious bargain which will appeal to Chablis admirers with a beguiling vibrant, fresh and zesty acidity that lifts the finish and invites repeated sipping... The obvious choice to afford immense drinking pleasure with chicken in a creamy sauce, pumpkin risotto, roast chicken / veal / guinea fowl as well as wild sea bass and lobster. Yet another bargain from The Wine Society. - James Viner

Bricco Rosso Suagnà Langhe Rosso 2009

Must-Try Italian Red of the Month: A polished dancing ballerina of a wine. Pair this delectable and refreshing Italian beauty with venison or lamb ragu, game pie, osso buco, pumpkin or wild mushroom risotto and a meaty pizza. This is a resplendent, lip-smacking aromatic red-fruit treat… outstanding value. - Jame Viner

Vecchio Moro Lambrusco Grasparossa Rinaldini

This is fizzy, blood-red and dry as a bone. Not how we usually drink Lambrusco in this country - most of the stuff found here is sweet. But, served in small tumblers, it is refreshingly different and full of bramble fruit flavours. It's a real treat. Food pairing: Parmesan cheese biscuits. - Helen McGinn

Magnum of Muga Reserva, Rioja 2008

Magnum. Very deep crimson. Very good price for such classic stuff. Firm and yet deeply strawberry fruited with real lift and freshness, yet clearly oak aged. Bravo! Good value. 17/20 - Richard Hemming

Vega Sicilia Unico Ribera del Duero 2004

Has the potential, in terms of concentration and persistence, to blossom. 17.5/20 - Richard Hemming

Marqués de Murrieta Blanco Capellania Vineyard, Rioja 2009

100% viura. Plenty of creamy oak up front, and a very attractive stony mineral character. Toffee and caramel on the finish – lots of bold flavour, so it won’t be for everyone, but it is convincingly and confidently done. 17/20 - Richard Hemming

The Society’s Chambéry

The Chambéry area of France takes this drink so seriously that it has its own appellation for vermouth. [This] has a clean and floral nose that’s slightly perfumed and supplemented by touches of violets. There’s also gentle acidity and a savoury base that brings in a minty freshness and a twist of liquorice. - Brian Elliott

Château Ksara Réserve du Couvent 2011

Well-made Lebanese red suited to spicy, slow-cooked lamb. - Oliver Thring
