Soft and generously fruity carmenère from the Rapel Valley in Chile. Lush, succulent and enveloping. Made for us by Concha y Toro's superb winemakers Ignacio Recabarren and Lorena Mora.
Clarets at this price excelled in this year’s Wine Champions, typified by this example from Château de Pitray. An inviting nose of juicy dark-berry fruit is complemented perfectly by good tannin structure and a fresh note of black pepper.
A pinot from the Languedoc to delight the senses: fresh, round and fruity with a hint of cherry and plenty of charm. Best drunk a little cool.
Made for us again by the Boekenhoutskloof team, from oak-matured Stellenbosch cabernet sauvignon refreshed by a little Swartland cinsaut, this recalls a traditional Cape style but is made in a more forward style, with juicy berry fruit. A Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal winner 2021 and commended at the International Wine Challenge in 2021.
This friendly and fresh-tasting claret is one of The Wine Society's most consistently popular wines. Supplied for over a quarter of a century by the family-owned Maison Sichel, the bespoke blend varies from vintage to vintage, but merlot takes the lead role, and the wine is made without any oak to avoid masking its bright red and black-fruit flavours. This is made to be drunk on its own or with a wide variety of dishes. The stylish new label features three Greek muses, inspired by those that adorn one of the city’s great landmarks, the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux opera house. Please note: We've taken the step to remove the capsule (the covering on the top of the bottle) from this wine, as part of our sustainability strategy. This will have no adverse effect on the quality of the wine but reduces waste. The wine is also bottled in a light-weight glass bottle (420g or less) that reduces our carbon emissions, as it requires less materials to produce and less energy to transport.
An intensely fruity malbec with tempting aromas of dark berries, plums and violets, leading to a palate of spicy fruit. Rich, round and ripe, this is lovely by the glass as well as being the perfect partner for a steak or Sunday roast.
A deservedly popular, smooth, generous and fragrant wine made from the nero d'Avola grape. It’s produced for us from carefully selected parcels in both the Ragusa and Agrigento regions of Sicily, where the Mediterranean climate, tempered by a cooling coastal breeze, produces full-bodied reds. Partly aged in French oak barrels with a further 12 months' maturation in bottle before release.
Aside from being good people, Bleasdale also make wines that consistently overperform, even in more challenging vintages. This is a prime example. It's wonderfully vibrant, bold, generous and fruity, with flavours of black cherry, blueberry and blackberry.
A soft, fresh and fruity wine from the acclaimed Pierres Dorées region of southern Beaujolais. Delicious slightly chilled. This replaces the Society's Beaujolais-Villages for the frost-affected 2021 vintage, which produced perfumed, less intense wines which are especially good from the south of the appellation.
This is a northern Rhône syrah, with elements from both banks including from Brézème, a micro-region a few miles to the south of Crozes-Hermitage. It offers plenty of colour and fresh-tasting blueberry fruit with a touch of spice. The syrah wines of the northern Rhône are often distinguished by the blackberry fruit that makes them so appealing, and these berries are the inspiration for the new label for our French Syrah.
An unstoppable Wine Champion 2023, ripe, come-hither and crowd-pleasing as ever with deep, dark fruit and ‘lots of flavour for the money’. Unveiling a Society label is always especially gratifying, too.
