Baccolo Appassimento Rosso Veneto 2019
This popular Veneto red's juicy rich style is achieved by partial natural air-drying of the grapes (a mix of merlot and corvina) to add richness. There is moreish black cherry and leather on the nose, with more spice developing on the palate and finish.
Château Lary Tagot, Bordeaux 2018
The brothers who jointly owned Chateau Lary have split this Bordeaux property, and Lary Tagot comes from one half of the vineyard. Ripe and satisfying, this is an impressive claret at this price level. Delicious now, it will develop further with a little time and provide a great deal of drinking pleasure.
Côtes-du-Rhône, Domaine Jaume 2020
Three generations of the Jaume family farm some 200 acres of vineyard in the southern Rhône village of Vinsobres. The climate here is influenced by Alpine foothills so that cooling breezes play on the vines, preserving fresh fruit flavours in the wines. Easy-drinking, yet full-flavoured and food friendly and a Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner 2021.
Domaine Laborie, Pays d'Oc 2020
Full of deliciously ripe and brambly fruit, this Languedoc blend of grenache, carignan and a little merlot consistently hits the sweet spots for flavour, price and quality. No wonder this great-value southern French red has been a fixture in members’ wine racks for many years.
Duo Des Mers Sauvignon-Viognier, Vin de France 2020
This clever blend of Gascon sauvignon blanc’s lemony crispness and Languedoc viognier’s fragrant apricotty charm went down just as well with our Wine Champions tasters as it does with the many members who buy it so enthusiastically each year. We are pleased to confirm the 2020 is an excellent year for this popular thirst quencher!
Lascar Classic Carmenère 2020
A typical carmenère, in this case from Chile, which is ripe, round, soft and generously fruity.
Lascar Classic Central Valley Chardonnay 2020
This good-value Chilean chardonnay combines ripe, tropical fruit flavours with a balanced, fresh palate.
Les Pierres Bordes, Marsanne-Viognier, Pays d'Oc 2020
This marriage of two Rhône grape varieties from the Minervois-Saint-Chinian border is now a firm and deserving member favourite. Fresh, round and moreishly fruity white wine from the deep south of France.
Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine sur Lie, Domaine des Ratelles 2019
The perfect all-rounder. Uncork the fresh, dry stone-fruit charm of this Vinet family benchmark with seafood feasts or enjoy its racy refreshing fruit solo as a warm-weather thirst-quencher.
Navajas Crianza, Rioja 2016
This plump, satisfying Spanish red melds strawberry and cherry fruits with a silky palate and a touch of vanilla from ageing in high-quality oak barrels. Supple enough to be enjoyed on its own, this also deserves to be the centrepiece star for a leg of lamb or gently spiced, root-filled roast.
Stoneburn Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020
This popular New Zealand sauvignon is better than ever in the superb 2020 vintage. Made for us by family winery Hunter's, this is attractive and elegant on the nose, with gooseberry and citrus notes, and a smooth refreshing palate.
A Fistful of Schist Reserve Chenin Blanc, Swartland 2021
Now with a new label design, this easy-drinking South African chenin comes from the perfect spot for old chenin vines. Stone-fruit flavours and smooth mouthfeel make it great with food or without.
