Members' Favourites Case
Côtes-du-Rhône, Château Courac 2017
Full-bodied fruity Rhône from the village of Laudun. Syrah plays a significant part in the blend, hence the deep colour and dark spicy fruit, combining body, ripeness and freshness.
Percheron Chenin Blanc-Viognier, Western Cape 2021
With fresh bright fruit, Percheron white from South Africa offer chenin's tropical and stone-fruit flavour lifted by a little aromatic viognier.
Baccolo Appassimento Rosso Veneto 2020
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. Black cherry and leather on the nose, with more spice developing on the palate and finish. It comes from a family-run co-operative based in the suntrap Colli Berici (Berici Hills) between Verona and Padua.
Duo Des Mers Sauvignon-Viognier, Vin de France 2021
Fragrant, fruity, dry and refreshing white made with sauvignon from Gascony and viognier from the Languedoc.
Les Pierres Bordes, Marsanne-Viognier, Pays d'Oc 2021
This marriage of two Rhône grape varieties from the Minervois-Saint-Chinian border is now a firm member favourite. Fresh, round, full-flavoured and moreishly fruity Languedoc white.
Pecorino Abruzzo, Contesa 2021
Rocco Pasetti was one of the very first to champion the excellent Abruzzo white grape, pecorino, and he's become a bit of an expert. With green-apple scent and lemon rind and mineral notes on the linear, refreshing palate, this Italian white pairs wonderfully with fresh salads, seafood or herb roasted chicken.
Domaine Laborie, Pays d'Oc 2021
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.
Duo du Midi, Pays d'Oc 2021
Brilliant, fruity Languedoc red made from cabernet franc and malbec, with flavours reminiscent of raspberry and a touch of cranberry that are fresh tasting and with some length on the palate.
Château La Grave de Bertin 'Héritage', Bordeaux Supérieur 2019
The top cuvée from this excellent property in the Entre-Deux-Mers displaying notes of dark fruit and a hint of vanilla, with a mellow finish. It is a blend of 80% and 20% cabernets sauvignon which has been aged in barrel for 12 months.
Pazo de Villarei Albariño, Rías Baixas 2021
A lovely fruity introduction to the fresh, aromatic quality of Galicia’s star grape, soulmate of seafood and deliciously refreshing.
Navajas Crianza, Rioja 2017
A flattering and expressive Rioja full of vanilla and red fruit flavour made in the oaky style. It is consistently a favourite of members' year after year. 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.
Lascar Classic Valle Central Chardonnay 2022
This good-value Chilean chardonnay offers ripe melony flavours and a fresh, round palate.
