Wines included

Half bottle of Château Angludet, Margaux 2012

A delicious, perfumed vintage of this perennial favourite Margaux, now at its drinking peak. In the 2012 vintage, a fitting 12% petit verdot was used, adding greater depth to the fine, ripe merlot and cabernet. This wine is a Museum Release: thanks to our member-owned co-operative model, our buyers are able to buy wines to mature in the perfect conditions of our temperature-controlled cellars and release them when they are ready to enjoy.

France £14.95 per bottle

Half bottle of Chianti Classico Volpaia 2019

Volpaia’s high-altitude Chianti demonstrates why such vineyards are so prized in the region as warmer vintages become the norm. These organically worked mountainside vines were able to produce something special in 2019 which was singled out for its red-fruited character, spicy complexity, purity and poise at our 2021 Wine Champions tasting.

Italy £9.75 per bottle

Half bottle of The Society's Champagne Brut NV

We remain incredibly proud of this wine’s pedigree and history, so naturally our tasters were overjoyed to see the seal of boutique producer Alfred Gratien peek out from its bottle bag as a Wine Champion in 2020. Fermented for longer in old oak and aged extensively prior to release, this generations-standing favourite is on reassuringly showstopping form. The blend is made up of all three Champagne grape varieties (chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier) from excellent sources. Because fermentation takes place in barrel rather than stainless steel, the wine is given more depth. The malolactic fermentation is suppressed so the wine retains a high level of acidity and, therefore, an ability to age very well. The style of Gratien, dry, full-flavoured, very long and well rounded, is quite distinctive. Enjoy on its own or with food.

France £17.50 per bottle

Half bottle of Verdicchio Classico Superiore, Villa Bucci 2019

A lovely crisp, dry Italian verdicchio with lemon, chalk and apple notes. Ampelia Bucci has 26 hectares of old, low-yielding, organically farmed vines, which accounts for the wine’s delicious intensity.

Italy £6.75 per bottle

Half bottle of Crozes-Hermitage Mule Blanche, Paul Jaboulet Aîné 2017

A sumptuous, weighty Rhône white mainly from Jaboulet’s famed Thalabert vineyard. The 2017 is a 50:50 blend of marsanne and roussanne, with some oak-ageing for greater complexity. A great food wine – try it with fish pie or cheese sauces.

France £11.50 per bottle

Half bottle of Rustenberg John X Merriman, Simonsberg-Stellenbosch 2017

One of South Africa's most loved Bordeaux-style blends in a top, award-winning vintage, deeply coloured, classically styled but rich and ripe, with elegant tannins and a long finish.

South Africa £8.50 per bottle
