2021 Society-label Wine Champions case
This medium-bodied marvel from north-west Italy reprised its winning performance in last year’s Championship. Its high-toned combination of pronounced acidity and ripe juicy red fruit makes it a great match with tomatoey dishes.
A 2021 Wine Champion. As buyer Matthew Horsley put it, ‘the standard of Beaujolais this year was amazing’, and this exciting taste of the 2020 vintage showed why it’s a great opportunity to get acquainted or reacquainted with the wines. After two fuller-bodied vintages, the freshness of this well-balanced, cherry-fruited favourite certainly perked up the tastebuds.
For the second year in a row, some of the loftiest scores were bestowed upon one of our lowest-price sparklers at our annual Wine Champions blind tastings. Made in the same way as Champagne by the small family house of Sumarroca, this effervescent bargain’s fragrant appley flavour and brioche-like richness proved irresistible.
Praised for its generosity and crisp, peachy refreshment, this lovely wine rose above strong competition at our Wine Champions tasting due to its excellent-quality Limarí fruit and the Concha y Toro team’s sensitive and clever winemaking (it’s unoaked, but some lees are stirred through to enrich the palate but without masking the fruit).
A deeply coloured, ripe claret from the vineyards of member favourite Château Pitray. Rich and appealling Bordeaux red, with plump merlot fruit on the palate.
The grü-v grape was a big success story at this this year's Wine Champions blind tastings, with Austria’s Stadt Krems securing a double victory. The first was the grüner they make for us, which showed just why we are so delighted to put our name to this wine: it really stood out with its succulent pear and nectarine flavours, refreshing spritz and gentle peppery twist.
