  1. 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.

  2. Chateau Jalousie 2015

    Château Jalousie 2015 - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Château Jalousie have just gone straight to the to the top of our popularity list for lightening up our day with the following food matching advice for their delightful half wine bottle of Claret: "Something juicy and relatively dead would be best." It's good to see there are some funny glands that are alive and kicking in Bordeaux. Just sayin'.

  3. Chateau Teyssier Montagne Saint-Emilion Red Wine France

    Château Teyssier Montagne Saint-Emilion 2008

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Have you seen the film Searching for Sugarman? If not, then we recommend you do; it's a masterpiece, but it means this tasting note won't make much sense. If you have seen it, then Château Teyssier from Montagne-Saint-Émilion is the Rodriguez of wine: sweetly melodious and timelessly classic with a compelling history and an enthralling finish. Like Rodriguez, who managed to pass most of the world by despite his brilliant, Montagne Saint-Emilion is somewhat overshadowed by its more famous neighbour, Saint-Emilion, but we think it's about time for its big-screen debut.

  4. Diane de Belgrave Haut-Médoc 2011

    Diane de Belgrave Haut-Médoc 2011

    £19.00

    £19.00

    A classic Bordeaux from fifth growth Château Belgrave in Haut-Médoc. A wine of depth, class and smoothness that really sings with rich fruit when decanted.

    This is the kind of wine your parents used to let you have a sip of at Christmas - austere but profound and full of the forbidden promise of adulthood. Open at a triumphant celebration of victory, or at the weekend.

    Medium-bodied, deeply complex, supple and rounded with a confident touch of wood on the finish.

  5. Miles Mossup 'Max'

    Miles Mossop 'Max' Bordeaux Blend 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    You know how Bordeaux is a bit tweed jacket, red trousers, brogues and hunting? Maybe that's a little unfair, but it's certainly on the stuffier side. Well what would happen if you moved it to South Africa, gave it a dose of proper sunshine, maybe taught it to surf and then changed its name to something edgy like Max? That would be pretty cool wouldn't it? Well that's exactly what Miles Mossop, the winemaker from Tokara, has done. This is a stunning wine, with flavours of dark cherries, charcuterie and Christmas cake, and great value. Such great value, in fact, we think they may have relaxed a little too much.

  6. Perez Cruz Waiki Cabernet Chilean Wine

    Pérez Cruz Waiki Cabernet 2014

    £12.25

    £12.25

    This wine takes its name from a curious custom in the Maipo Andes, in which new brides must go to the river, catch a fish and whisper "Wakey Wakey", before letting it go about its day.

    But this doesn't tell you much about the wine, so we'll help out: it has ripe red fruits, black pepper and vanilla flavours, underpinned by fresh aromas of tarragon and laurel. We don't know about fish, but we do know about red wine. This is one that's guaranteed to wake up your taste buds.

  7. Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere Chile Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    If you've not yet come across a bad Carmenere then there's a very simple reason for this. There aren't many. This is partly attributable to the grape itself, but more to do with the country within which it's grown.

    Chile is this country and its perfect growing conditions for this grape make it virtually organic by default for starters. This is a guarantee of the full-bodied, smooth, satisfying type of red that Carmenere is so well known for.

  8. Tenuta Chiccheri Valpolicella Superiore 2010

    Tenuta Chiccheri Valpolicella Superiore 2010

    £33.00

    £33.00

    When we tell you that Valpolicella is made using dried-up grapes left for ages in a box, it doesn't sound very nice, does it? But hear us out. When they are left to dry in this temperature- and humidity-controlled environment, they acquire a delicious raisin-y quality. It's rich and concentrated like Amarone, but Valpolicella has more elegance and finesse. With Valpolicella it's all about balancing the red berry, spice and sweetness and this one is something of a diplomat, and strikes that balance perfectly.

  9. Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon

    Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    If there is one time of year when anything goes, this is it. In fact it's almost as if pushing the rules is actually encouraged - hooray! When else is it okay to rock scandalous shreds of clothes, trowel on the black eye liner, throw the sugar quota out of the window and encourage e-number-fuelled youths to run around the streets and light rockets in the garden?

    If you'd rather celebrate your inner ghoul with a potent red wine, wrap your taste buds around this distinctively delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, which is oozing with layers of juicy blueberry, roast coffee beans and cigar box warmth.
