BW5451 BW5451 Château Argadens, Bordeaux 2015

A really delicious white with fresh apple flavour and a distinct peachy nose. Serve this with poached salmon or fresh goat's cheese or on its own, cool, as and aperitif in the sun.

BW5471 BW5471 Château Thieuley Blanc, Bordeaux 2015

A hybrid of sauvignon and semillon grapes make it a fresh, crisp drink with a smooth edge. Lovely with chicken or creamy pasta dishes and risotto - or just on its own.

BW5491 BW5491 Dourthe No 1 Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux 2015

This is a real value winner for Bordeaux white. More rounded than the majority of sauvignon blancs, it will pair well with salmon hollandaise or poached chicken.

LO12021 LO12021 Vouvray Demi-Sec ‘La Croix Picaussée', Domaine Francis Mabille 2012

Sweet and orangey on the palate, honeyed citrus. A bit simple. 15/20 Julia Harding

LO12051 LO12051 Cheverny, Domaine du Salvard 2015

Fresh, nettly and vibrant. Clean-cut and not as simple as straight Sauvignon. Remarkably refined for the price. Crisp enough for an aperitif but with enough depth for the table. I wonder how this would be with goat’s cheese? Nicely dry, fine-grained finish. Good value. 15.5/20 Julia Harding

LO12061 LO12061 Chinon ‘Le Temps des Cerises', Domaine de la Noblaie 2014

Deeply coloured like elderberry juice. Fabulously classic and intense Cabernet Franc nose – all that lovely black fruit – ripe but still beautifully fresh in this very good vintage. The fruit is well balanced with a slightly smoky reductive/mineral note that promises a longer future. Fine, dry, texture with graphite notes back on the long fresh finish. Totally moreish and very good value. 16.5/20 Julia Harding

LO12091 LO12091 Menetou-Salon Morogues, Domaine Pellé 2014

From a great Loire red vintage. Lightish crimson. Initially an earthy/smoky note before the dark-red fruits shine through. Dry, finely textured and harmonious. Good value for a red from the Centre Loire and with an attractive savoury quality. 16/20 Julia Harding

LO12261 LO12261 Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine sur Lie, Domaine des Ratelles 2014

Salty but actually rather low acid. Lots of mouthfeel. So much more personality (true to its provenance) than most wines at this price. Good value. 16/20 Jancis Robinson

LO12451 LO12451 Touraine ‘Le Bécassou', Domaine des Echardières 2015

Light crimson. Very lightweight with lots of acidity. Racy and super-light. Tastes as though it were under 12% alcohol. Dry and grainy. 15.5/20 Julia Harding

PW5711 PW5711 Soalheiro Alvarinho, Vinho Verde 2015

Platinum Best In Category, Decanter World Wine Awards, White Northern Portugal over £15: Lovely rich opulent style, with red apple skin and pear aromas. Nice weight on the palate - quite rich and layered - with perfect balance between rich friuit, brisk acidity and the balancing sweetness, allied to concentration and floral notes. - David Williams
