  1. 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.

  2. Aguila Macabeo 2012 White Wine Spain

    Aguila White 2012

    £6.50

    £6.50

    If Aguila White Wine was a person, it'd have to be the Prince of Cool, Will Smith. Whether he's keeping it fresh in Bel Air or regulating extra-terrestrial life of earth, this dude is chilled, but wacky, with a dry wit that cheers you up no end, which pretty much sums up this modern, fresh, fruity but dry Macabeo, we thinks.

    Altogether now, "In West Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days, chillin' out max and relaxin', all cool and all shootin' some b-ball outside the school..."

  3. Alain Geoffroy Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

    Alain Geoffroy Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    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...'

  4. Alain Geoffroy Petite Chablis White Wine France

    Alain Geoffroy Petite Chablis 2016

    £13.50

    £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.

  5. Albert Bichot Macon Pierreclos 2015 Red Burgundy

    Albert Bichot Mâcon Pierreclos 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    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!

  6. Albert Bichot Saint-Romain 2012 French White Wine

    Albert Bichot Saint-Romain 2012

    £26.00

    £26.00

    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.

  7. Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2015

    Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2015

    £16.00

    £16.00

    The first traces of the Bichot family track back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). Yep, you read that right, you just have to trust a winery that's coat of arms is older than most countries. Albert Bichot's coat of arms was around before America was a mere glint in Columbus' eye! We reckon they've got a secret handshake that predates the concept of commerce... probably learnt it form a woolly mammoth. Regardless, they have had a fair amount of time to hone their skill over at Bichot and it's very apparent in their wine. The Vire-Clesse has wonderfully intense aromas of lemon, peach and mango with subtle minerality on the finish. A timeless classic.

  8. Alma de Blanco Godello Spanish Wine

    Alma de Blanco Godello 2016

    £9.75

    £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. Mencia Alma de Tinto Mencia

    Alma de Tinto Mencia 2016

    £9.75

    £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.

  10. Anette Closheim 'Rouge' 2015 German Red Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Rouge' 2015

    £11.75

    £11.75

    It was frustrating. Britta had a soft spot for well-built men; but she also liked the gentle touch. A little subtlety. Seemingly, you can't have both. However, she wasn't one to compromise. Holding out for the perfect partner, she rewrote her online dating profile to be a little more ambiguous. "Wanted, structured, spicy relationship with a well-made partner. Needs the body to deliver. Prefer smooth."

    Being old-fashioned, Dirk didn't quite understand. Bless. He hastened round to "he 'Woman of the Nahe', maker of potions, and she made him just the thing. A velvety composition, with flavours of chocolate, wild berries and mint. What woman could resist such a combo? Well, that remains to be seen... Dirk hasn't been spotted since he knocked on Britta's door.

  11. Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016 German White Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Klaus was head-over-heels. Granted, he'd only seen Adelheid's picture, and - of course - fallen for her witty yet engaging online dating profile. But he'd truly tumbled. The last thing he was expecting was an answer to his hopeful message. And she wanted to meet! Klaus was in wonderland! The problem was he'd somewhat 'embellished' his description of himself.

    Adelheid's message revealed she was drawn to the wit, acumen, and sagacity he made much of. She was enamoured by the thought of a clever, practical man. And Klaus was far from that. Enter the fabled 'Woman of the Nahe'. Maker of potions. Just one sip of her 'Savvy' elixir and Klaus was brimming with canniness. What's more, the potion was just as elegant, lively and racy as Adelheid claimed to be. But that remained to be seen...

  12. Anette Closheim Riesling 2016 Germany White Wine

    Anette Closheim Riesling 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    A trail of failed relationships behind her; one disappointing beau after another. In desperation one weepy evening, Beatrice turned to an online dating site. Surely the right gentleman was out there somewhere. However, so thick were her tears she failed to notice her phone autocorrect one of the key words as she typed her profile. Instead of calling for a man with a good sense of reason, it altered it*. A man with a good sense of Riesling.

    Eckard thought his luck was in! More than taken with Beatrice's titivating profile pic, he dashed off to the 'Woman of the Nahe', maker of potions, to secure one of the most persuasive Rieslings she could muster. It only remained to be seen whether Beatrice was as sharp witted and exotically fruity as the wine!

    *Perhaps she typed that word in quite a lot...

  13. 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!

  14. Anxo Martin Spanish White Wine

    Anxo MartÍn 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Sometimes we desperately lust for a relaxing getaway and a dose of healthy vitamin D, but often lack the finance for it. We at Oddbins have a solution for this - just crack open a bottle of this liquid sunshine! You will immediately be teleported to a beach: juicy mango in hand and white flowers in your hair. Surrounding you are passion fruit trees heavy with ripe fruits, and the sun above you shines golden. Breathe in and get lost in a world of exotic wonders... This is the magic Anxo Martín brings!

  15. Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Possessive' Red Blend Australian Red Wine  2014

    Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Possessive' Red Blend 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    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!

  16. Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Wine

    Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Blend 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    If the tiles fall correctly in a game of Scrabble, the word "Gewurztraminer" will earn you 729 points. If you run "Riesling" off the end of it, you will get a lower score but a handy 50 bonus points for using all your letters. Larry Cherubino, a man also worth a few points, has an even more winning way of putting the two together, by blending them into a refreshingly heady, exotically spicy and rose petal-tinged bottle of loveliness, that would be the perfect foil for a mild curry and a Turkish delight dessert. Or you could ditch the Scrabble and drink it while watching Countdown and waiting for a rude word to crop up!

  17. Aymura Carmenere Red Wine Chilean 2014

    Aymura Carménère 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    250 miles north of Santiago lies Chile's Elqui Valley, which may well have been formed by the work of singer Elkie Brooks. The area has only recently found favour with winemakers initially cautious (with only 15 days precipitation per year, there's nothing but Sunshine After the Rain, but you'd be a Fool if You Think It's Over just because of that).

    Mitigating all of that sunshine are cool night-time temperatures which means that, instead of sweet and heady Lilac Wines, you can make bold, full-bodied, complex and dark chocolate-tinged Pearls like this (enough already! - Ed).

  18. Aymura Pinot Noir Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Pinot Noir 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible black... Well, don't come crying to us, Dylan Thomas; if you were after stars you should have gone to Chile's Elqui Valley, 250 miles north of Santiago.

    This is not only home to Viña Mayu, whence cometh this Old World-style of Pinot Noir, which has beautiful gamey, farmyard-y notes alongside flavours of fresh, sweet red cherry, but the region is also an astrotourism centre, with at least eight internationally-renowned observatories.

    Their extremely hot days and near-freezing nights offer some of Chile's most exciting winegrowing conditions, and it has attracted an increasing number of adventurous winemakers over the past fifteen years or so. Bet you don't get that in Llareggub!

  19. Aymura Syrah Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Syrah 2013

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Elqui Valley, Chile. Giorgio Flessati, a winemaker from the mountains of Northern Italy, is standing in a barrel room, gazing with satisfaction at the Aymura Syrah he has made for Viña Mayu. In five months it will be bottled and all who cross its path will be impressed by the thick, red fruit flavours which underpin its heady whirl of black pepper, smoke and leather.

    While the wine ages, Giorgio will fly back to Trentino, to catch up with family and friends and generally enjoy La Dolce Vita. During his flight he will doze, and dream about the wine he has made over the years in Bordeaux, Sicily, even Australia.

    Cambridgeshire, England. Dave Conkers, a factory supervisor from Peterborough, is standing in his garage, smiling wistfully at a row of demijohns. Mmm, this year should be the best yet. Hush now, Dave is dreaming too. Let him fly.

  20. Ayres de Escal Priorat

    Ayres de Escal Priorat 2012

    £13.25

    £13.25

    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.

  21. Beaujolais Selection Parcellaire 2015

    Beaujolais Selection Parcellaire 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    From a region that cannot and will not be ignored, this Beaujolais...hang on a minute, don't be like that. Stick around, you'll thank us.

    As we were. This Beaujolais "Selection Parcellaire" offers a refreshing and fleshy palate with a subtle yet full-body featuring red fruit flavours. The nose is both fine and intense with floral notes of violet and peony, enhanced by the fruitiness that is characteristic of Gamay. The finish is long, refreshing and ends on a fruity note. This is a real breath of fresh air from Beaujolais. Serve slightly chilled and you'll see how 'Gamay-zing' this wine really is!

  22. Becalm Malbec 2016 Red Wine

    Becalm Malbec 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    With its deep oceans of blueberry and black cherry fruit and bright, grippy tannins, this exclusive Malbec seems to resemble the starry skies above Argentina's Andes. Indeed, the team at Fincas Patagonicas (who are advised by Jean Claude Berrouet, formerly of Chäteau Petrus) were inspired by the story of the ancient constellation Argo Navis.

    According to the legend, this was the ship Jason and the Argonauts sailed in to retrieve the Golden Fleece and, like the delicately oaked Becalm, the image of this great wooden ship, gliding silently on an endless voyage through the southern skies, transports your thoughts far away so a sense of calm envelops you... So relax. Be Malbec. Becalm.

  23. Berton Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 South Australian Red Wine

    Berton Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £14.25

    £14.25

    Berton is a family-run set up that has risen promptly from humble beginnings in 2005. Having started on a plot of land that was dubbed 'the Bonsai' vineyard due to its gnarled, water-deprived vines, founder/owner Bob Berton introduced a better water supply and, resultantly, blinding wines.

    This Cabernet has an impenetrable black colour, fragrant and concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, fresh tobacco and sweet pepper and an intense, fine-grained palate of cassis, minerals and toasty oak.

  24. Bibo Runge Riesling 2015 German White Wine

    Bibo Runge Riesling 2015

    £16.75

    £16.75

    Born into nobility, Bibo Runge had no choice but to follow the path his ancestry determined and take arms as Knight Errant. Given his predecessors, much was expected of him, and he excelled, even against their legendary feats. But Bibo felt something was wrong. Why should he exercise his ability merely in the pursuance of personal fame?

    Choosing to throw off the outdated chivalric code, he made the protection of common people his crusade, installing himself in a quiet town in the guise of a humble blacksmith. It must have been instinct. For the Devil, intending to ride out, sent his horse to the town to be reshod. Other blacksmiths would have quailed and bent to the task; but Bibo sent the horse packing, battling him with his bare hands. This wine celebrates Bibo, displaying all the intensity, purity and steel of the man himself, with a finish that lingers as long as the tales.

  25. Blanc Vi Natural 2015

    Blanc Vi Natural 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Once upon a time, Espanyol, with regard to wine, seemed to be all about Riojas you could drink with a knife and fork. No longer, those crazy Iberians are such trail-blazers these days, that they've made a stonking red wine and named it "Blanc!" Not to mention the blend... surely, we haven't seen a more unusual collaboration since Aerosmith joined forces with Run-DMC. "Cabernet with, Garnatxa and Xarel-lo? That'll never work!" Spoiler - works.

  26. Blandy's Duke of Clarence Madeira

    Blandy's Duke of Clarence Madeira 70cl

    £15.00

    £15.00

    We can thank the existence of this Portuguese sweetie to a very happy accident of history. Way back when, when merchants shipped their wares in wooden ships, the wine in the hold would often overheat, resulting in a delicious, caramelised wine.

    Winemakers have sought to recreate this effect by baking the wine ever since - and now Blandy's have perfected the technique. This Madeira, made with the more unusual Tinta Negra Mole, is toffeed, ripe and nutty Madeira, with ample sweetness and a clean, tart finish. A most serendipitous wine indeed.

  27. Blau Cel 2015 White Wine Spanish

    Blau Cel 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    High up in the sky, a worried-looking coyote is clinging to a faltering Acme ‘Mars-or-Bust’ space rocket. ‘Bust’ is the clear winner. Far below him is a crazy quilt of cartoon farmland, and his look turns to one of resignation as he realises that as soon as he's fallen into it, the rocket will follow, landing on his head. Never mind, coyote, at least you're landing in Moisès Virgili's wonderfully higgledy-piggledy vineyards in Tarragona, and you can now spend your days happily running round tending to the differing needs of all the little plots, and making this aromatic, white fruited, refreshing and entirely Mediterranean organic white. It's got to be better than the Grand Canyon!

  28. Blau Mari Spanish Red Wine 2014

    Blau Marí 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    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.

  29. Bodegas Aster Ribera del Duero Crianza 2013 Spanish Red Wine

    Bodegas Áster Ribera del Duero Crianza 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

    One of those red wines that is so good it is likely to instantly convert many into lifelong devotees of Spanish wine. This is full-bodied with a deep, swirling whirlpool of dark Tempranillo character and an inspirational vanilla-tinged reminder of top quality oak. An excellent treat to keep in the kitchen for an unexpected special night in after a tough week - but way, way too good to add to anything that requires stirring.

  30. Palacios 'Finca Dofi' Priorat 2014 Red Wine

    Bodegas Palacios Remondo 'Finca Dofí' Priorat 2014

    £50.00

    £50.00

    During the mid-1900s, a boom in appetite for marzipan lead to great demand for almonds. Many farmers converted from other crops and planted almond trees, particularly in the beautiful region of Priorat. Rich farmers tore out their vines to grow almonds. Those more wistful, or simply less wealthy, sat by. Until years later a winemaker visited.

    He was gob-smacked. Gnarled old vines. Intense grapes. A resulting wine of power and refinement. Suddenly, the poorer farmers found themselves with some of the most coveted wine land in the world. Their sentiment paid off. Hence the phrase to 'priorat-ize' - to decide what is most important. Not always the quick buck, it seems!

  31. Palacios 'Placet' Rioja Blanco 2014 Spanish White Wine

    Bodegas Palacios Remondo 'Placet' Rioja Blanco 2014

    £17.50

    £17.50

    To be born into a well-regarded winemaking family might seem a boon, but for youngest son Rafa it was a double-edged sword. Yes, he inherited a passion to make outstanding Rioja; but he also wanted to assert his individuality. And, as always, that caused ructions. Family opinion was split.

    Rafael wanted to fashion a Blanco. A wine of such elemental elegance it would sit shoulder to shoulder with the family's reds. A white capturing the character of the region. Marrying the scrubland scents of Holm oak, thyme and rosemary with flavours of white peach and pear. A modern wine, but with deference to tradition. One taste, and the family gave their assent. You can decide for yourself.

  32. Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine

    Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £42.00

    £42.00

    A red wine with distinctive cassis influence with a cedary spine covered with dark cherry, waxy crayon earthiness, graphite and enticing undertones. On the palate it is rich with blackcurrant and firm ripe tannins indicating that this wine has at least a decade of ageing potential.

  33. Boer and Brit Field Marshall 2014 Red Wine South African

    Boer & Brit Field Marshall 2014

    £12.50

    £12.50

    A Mediterranean styled blended red wine, made up of alternative varietals produced in South Africa. Rich with flavours of pomegranate, cloves, pepper, ripe plums and masses of piquant spice before moving through to a lean, savoury finish.

  34. Boer & Brit The General South African Red Wine 2014

    Boer & Brit The General 2014

    £12.50

    £12.50

    An unorthodox Bordeaux blend, minus the Cabernet Sauvignon. This generous, full bodied red wine has been produced using the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot with a touch of Merlot. Hedgerow fruits, blue berries and spice notes are intensified by velvet tannins and a touch of oak.

  35. Le Cigare Volant Bonny Doon Vineyards American White Wine

    Bonny Doon Vineyards Le Cigare Volant Blanc 2013

    £30.00

    £30.00

    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.

  36. Borghetto Chianti Riserva Italian Red Wine

    Borghetto Chianti Riserva 2013

    £10.50

    £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.

  37. Bougrier Anjou Chenin Blanc White Wine

    Bougrier Anjou Chenin 2016

    £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!

  38. Bougrier Rosé d'Anjou 2016

    Bougrier Rosé d'Anjou 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    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...

  39. Sancerre Bougrier 2015 white wine

    Bougrier Sancerre 2016

    £16.00

    £16.00

    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.

  40. 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.

  41. Bougrier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Bougrier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    The family Bougrier were, by tradition, agricultural scientists. Their incredible achievements include the invention of a device for measuring the size of potatoes before digging them up, and a method for weighing cherries on a tree before they are picked. Their dream, however, was to find a way to lock particular aromas from the beautiful Touraine countryside into a tasty grape.

    After years of experiment they succeeded. They created a grape brimming with the clean, fresh scents of springtime hedgerows. Elderflowers, young nettles and cut grass. What's more, they discovered the flavours were even more appealing when the grapes were made into wine.

  42. Brunello di Montalcino Carpineto Red wine

    Brunello di Montalcino Carpineto 2011

    £42.00

    £42.00

    Montalcino is one of those staggering quaint, historic, sun-drenched hill top towns that give Tuscany its unique flavour. Brunello di Montalcino is one of those reds that give Italy such a glimmering reputation for incredible, food-friendly wines.

    In 1967, Giovanni Sacchet, co-founder and winemaker at Carpineto, fell in love with Tuscany and its wines, and made it his life's mission to produce modern, world class wines here. His Brunello is big, firm and tight, with flavours of liquorice, raspberries and vanilla.

  43. Cesar a Sumeire Rosé Wine France

    César à Sumeire Rosé 2016

    £28.00

    £28.00

    In the world of Provencal rosés, as with Victorian make-up, the general rule is the paler the better. This doesn't mean that they are wan wallflowers (as we imagine Victorian women) but, as with Cesar, they can be thrilling, vivacious, flavour-packed and racy wines.

    With an elegant nose of jasmine and wild rose and an ample palate of cranberries and lemon peel, there isn't a trace of sober Victoriana. Er, which isn't to say you shouldn't be sober at all times, officer.

  44. Cotes Du Rhone 'Blason' Esterzagues French Red Wine

    Côtes Du Rhône 'Blason' Esterzagues 2015 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £9.75

    £9.75

    No matter how rugged someone thinks they are- everyone wants to hide under a favourite blanket at some point. This Côtes du Rhône is the red wine equivalent. Juicy red berry fruits knit together with tummy warming spices. Woven from Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre this red wine duvet is completely unfiltered, giving it an extra silky texture. A perfect tipple with friends or when you're feeling 'Rhônely'...ahem.

  45. Cabaret Rosé 2014 - Magnum - Rosé Wine

    Cabaret Rosé 2014 - Magnum

    £24.00

    £24.00

    ***Silver at Decanter 2014***

    It's one thing to keep passing a business down to your children, it's quite another to keep that line going for 700 years. Yet this is exactly what the wine-making Sumeire family, in Provence, has done.

    Located at the foot of the magnificent Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which inspired artists like Cézanne, this historic winery has produced a classic Provencal rosé: feather-light and elegant, with fresh strawberry and cherry blossom notes.

  47. Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon

    Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Cannonball is named after the curled-up ball shape that children often form when jumping into water in order to make as big a splash as possible. The name encapsulates the liberated joy that is the company's ethos and the 'big splash' that they want wines like this dark chocolate, allspice and blueberry-flavoured Cabernet to make. It's a good job they didn't name their winery 'Bomb', after the British name for this kind of dive, as we're not sure it'd get through customs.

  48. Cannonball Chardonnay

    Cannonball Chardonnay 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Cannonball - a winery of high repute, making delicious, finely crafted wines - write of this 2014 Chardonnay that it "offers a sophisticated nose of lemon custard", which paints a rather silly picture.

    If anyone would like to send us their depiction of what "a sophisticated nose of lemon custard" looks like, we'd be most interested.

    Anyhoo, back to the wine. It's gorgeous. It balances zesty Granny apple and peaches with a vanilla pod creaminess, with a hint of buttery short crust pastry. Yowzer.
