The 2014 Rhône vintage is all about pleasure. From the very beginning, it made the region’s growers – and me – smile. What’s more, the wines are now open for business and ready to charm and delight you too. To prove the point, I’ve plundered our cellars, where these wines have been slumbering since release, and put together this mouthwatering selection.
We’ve rounded up two dozen perfect candidates (all priced between £5.95 and £8.50) to see you through this bounteous ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’.
Christmas Fine Wine List
Our largest fine Wine List of the year is crammed with choice; chock-full of larger-than-life wines and star turns… we’ve even got the big bottles out in a mouthwatering magnum selection.
En Primeur Further Stocks
Despite high demand and deserved critical praise for these wines, we still have some 2016 allocations available from the Rhône and Languedoc, bordeaux and burgundy at their original in-bond prices.
Get the Party Started!
Your Christmas to-do list might be longer than Santa’s, but at least you don’t have to worry about making sure you have a perfect selection of wines to see you through the festive season.
Huge Savings on Champagne
I hope that this wide selection of classic fine Champagnes tempts you to celebrate over the next few weeks, with the added bonus of some very smart prices thanks to our wonderful suppliers.

Spanish Treats & Treasures
We all know that the Spanish make fantastic wines. They have a knack for packing each bottle with the kind of rich, ripe flavours that are so wonderful enjoyed at cosy get-togethers or tapas feasts with friends.
The Pleasures of Piedmont
Nebbiolo, king of Italian red grapes, famous for Barolo and Barbaresco, is flourishing with an unprecedented run of great and good vintages. Dynamic growers with a hunger to achieve and improve are more evident than ever before.
The White Gold of Alsace
What’s wonderful about Alsace wine is its versatility; from the most delicate of young, dry whites to the exotic power and beauty of aged late-harvest bottles. At one level they provide affordable drinking for easy weekday suppers, at the other, fine wines of enormous complexity and sophistication perfect for fine dining.
