  • Laurent-Perrier

    Laurent-Perrier 2004

    Now £38.00

    Was £48.00

    £38.00

    Of all the Champagne houses, Laurent-Perrier has a certain knack of getting a distinctly different voice across on all its incarnations. Laurent-Perrier boasts an enviable extended family (its Ultra Brut, for example is best in its class) and this vintage version follows in that long line of enviables. Every drop of this one comes from Grand Cru vineyards: honeyed notes ride upon an elegant and dry body; while richness and complexity are never lost in the shuffle.
  • Chablis Domaine Alain Geoffroy  2013

    Chablis Domaine Alain Geoffroy 2013

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Far and away the most successful Chablis in our range over the past few years, this is loved and adored by all who try it, like it, and come back for more. A guarantee of respectability, with its white table cloth dinner party tone and classic presentation you'll need no further help with ideas for take-round bottles or presentable offerings. This has everything you'd expect from a Chablis: dry and restrained and delicately laced with flavour and minerality
  • Koden by Luis Alegre - Rioja Alavesa 2011

    Koden by Luis Alegre - Rioja Alavesa 2011

    £9.75

    £9.75

    Koden is an Aztec word meaning “the time in a woman’s life when she’s at her most splendid” which, we think, is an excellent name for a wine. And, with fragrant, red fruit and a velvety, luscious palate, this wine really does have those qualities that you’d associate with feminine beauty and fertility. Ahem, sorry, this all sound a bit odd now we’re reading it back, but you’ll see what we mean if you try it.
  • Markowitsch Pinot Noir

    Markowitsch Pinot Noir 2011

    £15.50

    £15.50

    Psst! We don’t want the others to hear! There’s a brilliant winery in Austria that is making wines, but we think they must have let some kind of philanthropist in their finance department because, frankly, their wines are a steal. Luckily, their winemaker is not a philanthropist and his attention is solely to the grapes in the vineyards. In this case, these grapes are Pinot Noir and they do very well, thank you, in the Carnuntum region near the Pannonian sea, with the cooling westerly winds, making for a beautifully delicate, hedgerow and raspberry fruit-flavoured Pinot Noir with fantastic finesse. Our secret, OK?
  • Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc

    Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £12.50

    £12.50

    In Japan “kuru-kuru” means to spin around and “kuru-kuru-pa” is a colloquialism meaning insane. Although the Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc actually takes its name from a Maori ancestor of the winemaker, the Japanese seems kind of fitting as this wine is insanely good and its heady aromas and flavours will send your taste buds into a spin. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at its finest, each dizzyingly impressive sip will lure you spiralling back in for another.

  • Longview The Whippet Sauvignon Blanc

    Longview 'The Whippet' Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £13.25

    £13.25

    Well. When we got into the business of selling wine, little did we imagine that we would become the go-to business for Whippet lovers nationwide. But, for obvious reasons, Longview winery’s Whippet Sauvignon Blanc has gone down a storm with the canine-loving community. Thankfully, it happens to be a cracking little wine too. Racier than a Whippet in a field of sheep, it is bursting with gooseberry, asparagus and nettle flavours. If you want to think of this wine as a dog, then think of it as a rescue dog, because the Saturno brothers took the decision to harvest just before the devastating floods of 2011, as the grapes had thankfully ripened sufficiently. Lucky Whippet.

    Sancerre Vacheron Blanc 2011

    £19.50

    This wine is drier than Jack Dee on a desert island, having just seen a mangy mutt licking its lips after drinking the last drop of water from the island’s only oasis. Yes, this wine is dry. But before you raise your hands in despair, shouting 'I need more than just dryness in a wine!', let us tell you about the gooseberries. More than that, let us tell you about the lemon, the lime… the delicate hints of honey. These are beautiful flavours, my friends, and they maketh for a beautiful wine.

    Las Colinas del Ebro Syrah/Garnacha 2013

    £8.25

    £8.25

    Purity. It’s a desirable quality. People will pay much money for water transported in from an unadulterated Greenlandic cloud and such like, but Las Colinas del Ebro offers something much tastier: fruit purity. Made solely from the ‘free-run juice’, this wine has fewer tannins and fresh, vibrant blueberry and blackberry fruit. Like cloud-sourced Greenlandic water, ‘tis best enjoyed when young and, possibly unlike cloud-sourced Greenlandic water, would be a fabulous match for a Catalan lamb stew.

  • El Quintanal Verdejo 2013

    El Quintanal Verdejo 2013

    £10.00

    £10.00

    It’s spring. The sun is just warming up over the Spanish wild meadow you are walking though. To your delight, you hear the tinkling of a stream nearby, adding a serene musical background to the firm crunch of the soil under foot. Sweet fragrances of fennel, bay and cereal abound, combining with fresh quince and pear notes from the orchard just ahead. This isn’t a walk we’re describing, people; this is wine. This is El Quintanal Verdejo and it’s yours for £10. Not ‘alf bad.

  • Dr. Koehler Blanc de Noirs Trocken

    Dr. Koehler Blanc de Noirs Trocken 2013

    £12.50

    £12.50

    “Is it a white wine? Is it a red wine? Is it a rosé wine? Is it a sparkling?” In truth, Dr. Koehler Blanc de Noirs is none of these things. It is a white wine made with red grapes that have had only the briefest time on the skins, so the wine does not become a full-on rosé. Instead, it is a full-on white wine, with dramatically fragrant flavours of raspberry and rose and a firm structure that make it a superb match for most BBQ fare. It also has a very gentle spritziness and is ever so slightly off-dry. The grapes in question are Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and the only time we’ve seen these grapes make white wine is in Champagne. So, in essence, you’re drinking still German Champagne. Kinda.

  • Solter Brut Rheingau Riesling Sekt NV

    Solter Brut Rheingau Riesling Sekt NV

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Walk down most supermarket aisles and you will probably not find much sparkling German Riesling. Especially if you’re in the baked beans aisle. Anyway, assuming you’re in the right aisle, it’s still unlikely. Germans tend to drink the stuff themselves rather than export it but we’ve managed to prize some away. And it’s a good’un. Made with 100% Riesling, using the same method they do in Champagne. It has wistful aromas of peaches and honey, with smooth acidity and a soft, gentle mousse that makes you wish the Germans would share the love a little more.

  • Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepère Red

    Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepère Red 2011

    £10.75

    £10.75

    We love Hannah Leadbeater. Upon being asked to write a tasting note for the wine that she discovered and fell in love with on holiday four years ago, she gathered the same friends that she’s holidayed with and they sat around together, coming up with the following tasting note between them. Talk about team work! Here is that (very accurate, in our opinion) note on this Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec blend from the Languedoc: 'This wine is packed full of character. The aroma is of red berries, cinnamon and vanilla. These flavours combine on the tongue with a slight pepperiness and a rounded mouth-feel. It is medium-bodied, delivering a great taste whilst being fresh on the palate. It has a long finish, making it great for savouring on its own. It also goes well with red meats, stews or lashings of French cheese!'

  • Secret de Viu Manent Malbec

    Secret de Viu Manent Malbec 2010

    £11.25

    £11.25

    Border-hopping Malbec from the other side of the peninsula in Chile. This is very South American anyway. Small wonder Chile too are turning their hand to this, the Argie-wonder grape; not that they need to prove much when it comes to winemaking. This Secret (or locally, Secreto) is Malbec very much as you picture it: Full and juicy, smooth and satisfying, and with the guaranteed trademark long, long length. Wine this good won't be much of a Secret for long.

  • Vinum Chenin Blanc 2011

    Vinum Chenin Blanc 2011

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Why isn’t Chenin Blanc as famous as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc? More versatile than a Swiss Army knife, it’s used all over the world for sparkling, dry and sweet wines, it’s happy being oaked or unoaked and when it comes to food there’s very little you can’t match it with. The honest truth is that Chenin Blanc isn’t always treated with the respect it deserves. But if you put it in the hands of an extraordinary winemaker who lives and breathes Chenin Blanc, then you can hear it sing. May we present Vinum Chenin Blanc, what we call simply “The Future”.

    From a small village halfway between Dundee and Aberdeen comes Fettercairn 1824 12 Year Old. This bottling has been discontinued, so this is a last chance to grab this honeyed malt with notes of beeswax, walnuts and mulling spices. When it’s gone, it’s gone.

    Anyone hoping for a Scottish Chardonnay may have had their hopes fleetingly raised upon seeing the name on this bottle. No wineries up there yet, but give it a few years - we're living in a climate of climate change. This bottle is of course made in California and McManis is the family name of the vineyard from where this Chardonnay comes. This is the rich and full-bodied style of Chardonnay that true Chard-heads demand. McDougal?, McTavish?; - McManis - Chardonn-Aye!

    Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz 2010

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Some people say that art is having fun, seriously, and this is very much the view of Wirra Wirra’s founder, Greg Trott, who said: “Never give misery an even break, nor bad wine a second sip. You must be serious about quality, dedicated to your task in life, especially winemaking, but this should all be fun.” And the fruits of all this serious fun? A juicy, bright and incredibly drinkable Shiraz, with oodles of plum and blueberry and all-character. It’s a little piece of art.

  • Jansz Sparkling

    Jansz Sparkling NV

    £15.75

    £15.75

    Jansz is like a Champagne house in a parallel universe, which enjoys the same cool, temperate weather, but where everyone is laid back in that idiosyncratically Australian way. They don't call their winemaking method champenoise, but Tasmanoise. And the best bit? The wine is out of this world, with flavours of lemon, honeysuckle and toasted hazelnuts, at a very real-worldly price.

    £21.00

    A fabulously fun and fruity off-dry number, this classic Italian fizz has become adored by Latin lovers for its soft mousse, or bubbles. It offers a delightfully fruity nose, followed by flavours of apricot and soft peach, with a refreshing yet gloriously flavourful finish. Less ‘flinty’ than cava or many Champagnes, this makes for a gorgeous celebratory tipple or aperitif in its own right.
