  1. Umani Ronchi Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2015 Italian Red Wine

    Umani Ronchi Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2015

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Set against the picturesque Italian vineyards of Cupramontana, a powerful tale of age-old traditions and ancient lands emerges. Riddled with romance, scandal, betrayal, revenge, dynasties and lots and lots of…plums. Plums being our protagonist in what you’d be forgiven for thinking was the start of a good old Marian Keyes novel.

    Instead, this is the tale of Umani Ronchi, winemaking extraordinaire producing a medium bodied red wine, jam-packed with…you guessed it, ripe plummy fruit flavours. There’s nothing fictional about this wine. It’s a fact that it’s of excellent quality and it provides one hell of a happy ending.

  2. Aguila Syrah Spanish Red Wine 2012

    Aguila Red 2012

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Historically, Spain wasn’t always the go-to country for affordable, fresh, good value wines, being hitherto known, on the whole, for more oaky styles but, for the past few years, it’s made everyday wines something of an art form.
    Grown at high altitude in the DO of Cariñena, the Syrah grapes give rise to a clean, vibrant wine with intense aromas of dark cherry, violets and freshly-made jam.
    In vinous terms, Spain has traded sandals for Nike Airs; swapped Neil Diamond for Lily Allen; dispatched the Coronation Chicken in favour of beetroot foam; call it what you like, it changed, and we like it.

  3. Alain Chavy Chassagne-Montrachet, 'Les Chenes' 2013 France White Wine

    Alain Chavy Chassagne-Montrachet, 'Les Chenes' 2013

    £45.00

    £45.00

    While Patsy and Eddie (our old pals off of Ab Fab) may not think so, many people think that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. This Burgundy white wine has that classic simplicity. Which isn’t to say that, like a sharply tailored, ergonomic, becoming suit, it has depth of detail, class and attention to details.

    Ripe, but never over-ripened, fruit perfectly balance with a fresh acidity, stony minerality from the soils it was grown and a rich round mouth feel that exudes from the rightfully confident wine that it is, sweety darling.

  4. Domaine Chavy Puligny Montrachet French White Wine 2013

    Alain Chavy Puligny Montrachet 2013

    £45.00

    £45.00

    In 1994, the Domaine Gérard Chavy family estate was split in two between brothers Alain and Jean-Louis, who had formerly the estate together. Jean-Louis went his way and Alain went his.

    We don’t want to wade in on this French familial affair, but we do want to wade in with our opinions on Alain’s winemaking skills: he’s blooming talented! He makes this shimmying, sassy, apricot and lime-imbued jewel of a white wine in his half of the domaine and ages it in what is one of the few underground wine cellars in Burgundy, where this Pulighny-Montrachet has aged sublimely. To be savoured.

    Domaine Alain Geoffroy have let Oddbins in on a little-known secret about a certain singer-songwriter and this Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy.

    Way back when she visited the Domain on a holiday, Natasha Bedingfield understandably fell a little head-over-heels in love with this voluptuous white wine. She was so enamoured by its pale golden colour, floral aromas and fresh, fruity flavours that she couldn’t stop singing about bottles full of sunshine.

    Rumour has it she had to change the lyrics for legal reasons and so she started singing about pocketsful of sunshine instead – a bit of a leap if you ask us. But your secret is out now, Natasha, and quite honestly we love the original version almost as much as we love this Chablis; we dare you to try singing it without it getting stuck in your head!

    ‘I got a bottle, Got a bottle full of sunshine, I've got a love and I know that it's all mine...’

    £13.50

    Imagine (insert here your favourite actor) dressed in white linen emerging from an orchard swinging a basket of freshly picked apples and lemons. Probably should make that actor someone French to authenticate the vision? Anyway, they are chewing on one of these crisp apples and you're invited to the house to make homemade lemonade. Suddenly a whole river- a really clean one from New Zealand wooshes past and sweeps the two characters away (You're including in this now) and plonks them down on top of a hill of fossil-rich clay. There you have it- This Petit Chablis. Apples, citrus, clean crispness and fresh minerality. Plus a couple of soggy Thespians that got saturated by the sudden intrusion of that river. But they are happy- this wine ain't too chablis at all.

  7. Albert Bichot Brouilly Roche Rose

    Albert Bichot Brouilly Roche Rose 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Brouilly, one of the most well-known and geographically widespread vineyards in the Beaujolais region, is home to a smaller vineyard named ‘Pisse-Vielle’. You’ll be forgiven for thinking the inevitable here, as it does quite literally translate to how it sounds – ‘Piss, old woman.’ It’s a ridiculous story and one you should definitely read, but one we also feel isn’t suitable for a wine tasting note.

    *Reads story*

    So, miscommunication can be amusing can’t it? In the interest of clarity however, here we have a robust, structured Brouilly with well-integrated tannins. It has subtle aromas of wild cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry and a hint of spice. The palate is refreshing and fleshy with a lasting fruitiness on the finish. A great pairing with barbecued meats.

    Now, ‘Drink, old woman!’

  8. Albert Bichot Chablis french wine

    Albert Bichot Chablis 2014

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Albert Bichot’s family wine business goes back a whopping six generations. That means that they were making wine when the first plane took off, when Benjamin Disraeli was in power (both times) and when Beethoven was composing his Fifth Symphony.

    Indeed, like young Ludwig, though this wine does not possess the faculty of hearing, it is a pitch-perfect, accomplished performer that interprets its influences perfectly.

    In this Chablis’ case, that means that the limestone slopes of Chablis are conveyed as a stunningly fresh and elegant, symphony of a wine. It’s an Ode to Joy.

    Albert Bichot’s family wine business goes back so far that it coincided with Beethoven composing his Fifth Symphony, an absolute masterpiece, similar to this Macon Pierreclose Bichot… Thinking about it, to quote Albéric Bichot himself, he has compared his work to conducting an orchestra too!
    Not too dissimilar to Mr. Beethoven after all then, but instead of a string quartet and a pianist, we have an acapella of cherry, plum and spices on the nose, a crescendo of intense fruit flavours against a tangy background on the palate and on the finish?
    An impressive ensemble of refreshing notes of red fruit. Encore!

    And very saintly it is too! It is incredibly approachable, with a natural grace that seems to shine down from above. A seriously appealing streak of elderberry and citrus peel notes on a mineral background bring it back down to earth, however, which is handy, as you’ll need it down here if you’re going to serve it with a creamy chicken and tarragon pie.

    Full-bodied with discreet oak adding warmth and creamy notes, this wine’s supple, fleshy texture reminds you that, while saintly, it is definitely of this world.

    £9.75

    A few years ago, Rias Baixas, and Albarino were the region and grape names to drop to prove your wine aficionado credentials. These days, those names have become almost mainstream, and it's the tiny neighbouring region of Monterrei - and Albarino's doppelganger Godello - that you need to be talking about to show off your esoteric knowledge. Like Albarino, Godello is crisp, fresh and so friendly to seafood it risks an injunction. Snap it up while it's still an undiscovered (and under valued) gem.

    £9.75

    Tucked away in the mountains of Spain's wild North West, hard up against the topmost corner of Portugal, Monterrei is one of Iberia's tiniest, and least known wine producing regions. Mencia is the grape native to that rugged part of the world, and, as far as we're aware, found nowhere else. The wine it produces is appropriately wild and brambly, dark and intense, but full of bright, fresh fruit that pulls it up just this side of brooding. A walk on the wild side with a spring in its step.

    Amarone is about as full-flavoured and juicy as a red can get without help of fortification; very smooth and silky with a tantalizing contrast of sweet and ever-so-subtly bitter, but not bittersweet, if you catch the drift...

    Amarone is an indulgent jump away from regular Italian red table wine and the product of a different winemaking method that gives it its magic properties of being like liquid fruitcake or bottled gateaux! This has the added bonus of keeping well and in good shape a few days after it has been opened.

  18. Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    "Anna's Song" was recorded by Marvin Gaye while he was going through his divorce with Berry Gordy's sister, Anna. "Anna's Way" can also be interpreted as being about the marriage of two of the main valleys of the Marlborough region though - the Awatere and Wairau Valleys.

    This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc offers an intense nose of passion fruit and gooseberries with subtle floral notes. It's quite green and therefore the wine is dry to taste but sweetened by the juicy flavours of citrus, passion fruit and gooseberries. Its lingering finish makes you feel the same way as Marvin Gaye, who obviously doesn't want his relationship with Anna to end.

    The song finishes with the words: ""Anna, Anna, Anna, this is Anna's song, loving you all night long!"" I can assure you, you too will sing the song after a sip of Anna’s Way!

    You can be complex yet still approachable. Look at Living in The Past by Jethro Tull, a record so wonderfully catchy that you'd never notice its complex 5/4 time signature. Look at Stephen Fry, his mind constantly whirling about like an orrery while he's one of the most popular chaps on television.

    And look at this wine, three grapes that bounce off each other's differing personalities like an old Beatles interview, with heavy Shiraz lifting musky Grenache, which softens the Mataro which sharpens the Shiraz which... and so on, like an Escher staircase.

    Suffice it to say that all this activity need not even momentarily distract you from what is a thoroughly delicious, complex and approachable modern red wine. Hats off to Larry!

    Asmodeus Nero d'Avola 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    Disclaimer: this wine has a story of an ‘adult’ (albeit historic) nature… In the Book of Tobias, an ancient Hebrew text, Asmodeus is the Demon of Lust. It is said that when Cain killed Abel, Adam and Eve separated for 130 years. During this time, Adam was tempted by Naamah and Lillith, two demons of prostitution. Asmodeus is the offspring of the relationship between Naamah and Adam.

    Of all of the varietals of Italy, Nero d’Avola is as lustful and pleasurable as it gets, hence this delectable red wine was named after Asmodeus. Rich, peppery and opulent, it has many of the same characteristics of Syrah and is arguably the most important grapes in Sicily. That wasn’t too rude, was it?

    Way back when in 1194, a group of very clever monks decided to plant some Vitis Vinifera vines on the vertiginously steep slopes of Priorat. This was a great idea because the loose, granite-like ‘llicorella’ soil there is chuffing marvellous for Garnacha and Carignan. Fast forward 800 years to the 1990s and, after a long fallow period, a group of spunky young winemakers had the equally good idea of resurrecting the region’s wine industry. They’re making seriously good wine again, like this well-structured, raspberry jam-flavoured beauty. The monks would be proud.

    To be a good teacher, it’s important to understand your class, its dynamic, who’s disruptive, who’s the quiet genius etc., and to respond accordingly. Well, winemaker Moisès Virgili does the same thing with his Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnatxa vines.

    He says “The vineyard blocks are small and idiosyncratic. Some face the sea, others don’t, and the soil is different from one row to another, so we treat them all individually’. This approach coaxes out all the refined, noble black fruit of the Cabernet and the lush red fruit of the Garnatxa and combines them perfectly in the winery to create an A* wine.

    It’s one thing to have a knack for something, but Californian vintner Randall Grahm has a very peculiar knack for bringing traditional and more out-there techniques together to create a kind of beautiful third dimension. Whilst he studiously replicates the grape blends of France’s Rhône Valley – earning himself the nickname ‘The Rhône Ranger’ – he also calls upon the astronomical calendar when attending to his beloved vines. Like a Zen master, he doesn't interfere with the process, preferring to let nature (wild yeasts) to do the work (fermentation). In the case of this white Rhône blend, this has resulted in transcendent finesse, with mystical aromas of lavender and quince, leading to a palate of mango and pear. Out of this world.

  41. Borghetto Chianti Riserva Italian Red Wine

    Borghetto Chianti Riserva 2013

    £10.50

    It was that old cad, Hannibal Lector, who told Clarice that he ‘ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti’ in The Silence of the Lambs. So we suggest that a far more reasonable food match for this velvety, cherry-laden, supple red wine would be a simple tomato and fresh basil spaghetti dish. Lovely.

    What we’re saying is, stick to a vegetarian dish, because Hannibal has kinda ruined meat matches with Chianti. The cad.

  42. Bougrier Anjou Chenin Blanc White Wine

    Bougrier Anjou Chenin 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Like the Clan MacLeod in epic 1980s sci-fi/fantasy, Highlander, the Bougrier family have been around for a long time. But, thankfully, they don’t have that nasty Kurgan bloke bothering them at every turn because otherwise they’d have no time at all to make such delicious wines.

    This delightful Chenin is the perfect way to discover slightly sweeter styled wines. The touch of fruity sweetness is tempered by lovely crisp acidity and is bursting with fresh peach and orange blossom loveliness. Take that, Kurgan!

    Sometimes in life you just want to keep things simple. Your furniture minimalist, your walls whitewashed, your white wine crisp, clean and clear. Like a Loire Muscadet.

    Little wonder it’s famously the perfect match for oysters – after all, what could be simpler than a delicacy taken straight from the sea and consumed raw, fresh and unadulterated.

    Just a squeeze of lemon, perhaps a dash of Tabasco, and a well-chilled Muscadet, beads of condensation trickling down the wine glass. Ah, sometimes the simple things in life truly are the best…

    Ah, summertime, when the living is easy, fish are jumping and it’s time for rose wine – or something along those lines. And of course, kicking back, shoes off, feet up, on the porch or a picnic blanket in the park is where pink wine comes into its own, but you know what? Why wait?

    It’s great as an aperitif any time, or as an accompaniment to lightly spicy food. Or for turning a rainy Tuesday into a lazy, hazy summer Sunday…

    This wine is so fist-thumpingly fresh, so buttock-clenchingly minerally, so eye-poppingly citrusy that, if you try it, you might for a moment mistake yourself for Brian Blessed, immediately start charging around, tearfully declaring “Gordon’s alive!!” to anyone who’ll listen and generally make yourself known to ear drums the world over. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s actually like to be Brian Blessed, this is the wine for you.

  46. Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Vintage White Wine

    Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that you have to go to the New World to get really good value in the classic French grape varieties, like sauvignon blanc. Or is it? Here's a Loire Valley sauvignon that's as crisp, fresh and grassy as a newly mowed meadow, with elegant minerality and a subtlety and restraint that's reminiscent of classic Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, at half the price. Which sounds like pretty good value to us. So set aside pride and prejudice and leave yourself open to persuasion with this classic white wine.

    Sometimes tasting notes can seem so far-fetched you wonder whether the writer is actually taking you for a ride. If we were to say that the intense fragrance of this lovely Pinot Noir has the perfumed cedarwood spice that might best be reminiscent of the most expensive and exclusive eau de cologne, you might just baulk at the suggestion! But it's the kind of character that sets this fragrant Burgundy wine apart and makes it Pinot with personality. A wine for flashes of personal expression.

  48. Bourgogne Rouge Domaine d'Ardhuy

    Bourgogne Rouge Domaine d'Ardhuy 2013

    £17.00

    £17.00

    This could well be the fullest of the new red Burgundies in our mid-price range, but only by a smidgen. All those from the excellent Domaine d'Ardhuy situate themselves on the lighter more thoughtful side of Burgundy, but this is the one to choose if you want a touch more body and juice. Ripe and silky this has stability and roundness but retains a definite "femininity". A curvy size 12 to the waifish size 8 of some of its lighter housemates.
