  1. Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvigon Chilean Red Wine

    Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Chile does a number of things well: it does some pretty nice mountains and it can do miraculous escapes from mines very well but, here at Oddbins, we rather like them for their oh-so affordable, brilliant, fruit-forward wines. They have a particular knack with Cabernet Sauvignon, from which they have coaxed, in this particular instance, winning aromas of black cherries and berries and a palate of bilberries, cassis and mature blackberries, supported by soft and elegant tannins.

  2. Arnesque Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu 2012 French Red Wine

    Domaine de L'Arnesque Côtes du Rhône Plan de Dieu 2014

    £13.25

    £13.25

    One to add to a magnificent group of Rhône red wines now at Oddbins by this modern and dependable new supplier. Domaine de l'Arnesque have given us a good little portfolio of red wine that sing the virtues of their house style.

    That style is well-represented here: full-bodied, unfailingly solid, sturdy and fruity, with plenty to taste, and the balancing zeal of some rounded tannins.

  3. Lat 42 Rioja Reserva Spanish Red Wine

    Lat 42 Rioja Reserva 2012

    Now £12.00

    Was £14.00

    £12.00

    If you ran around the circle of latitude 42 degrees north of the equator you'd visit some pretty unusual places: Corsica, Albania, Macedonia, Georgia, most of the "stans", Inner Mongolia, North Korea, the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the Oregon/California and New York/Pennsylvania borders, and loads more. But to be honest we wouldn't get much further than Torre de Oña's winery in la Rioja Alta. Their classic, elegant Rioja, with its berry aromas and creamy oak, is the kind of wine that is so good it makes you entirely forget what you were doing...

  4. Maison Albert Bichot 'Loiseau-Bichot' Gevrey-Chambertin

    Maison Albert Bichot 'Loiseau-Bichot' Gevrey-Chambertin 2012

    £43.00

    £43.00

    If you are planning a very lovely dinner party, plan your menu around this Burgundian bombshell. It has been lovingly blended by the expert sommelier, Eric Goettelmann, from the Cote d'Or restaurant, which has forged a strong partnership with the talented producer, Domaine Albert Bichot.

    Together, they have created a wine that oozes black cherries, smoky, woodland-y fragrances, with the body and firmness you'd expect from Gevrey-Chambertin. Its dream partner? We reckon a poussin wrapped in prosciutto, served with creamed butternut squash. Do we get an invite?

  5. Morgon Henry Fessy 2015

    Morgon Henry Fessy 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    With its musketeer-style label, may we introduce Moujolais; moustachioed Beaujolais. The World Beard and Moustache Championship has six sub-categories for soup strainers;

    Natural (styled without aids), Hungarian (bushy and pulled to the side), Dalí (slender and curved steeply), English (long and narrow), Imperial (whiskers on upper lip and cheek) and Freestyle (everything else).

    Henry Fessy's Morgon is of a medium weight with a rounded finish adorned with fruit. On the basis of its flair we'd give this red wine first prize in the "Freestyle" category if it really were a lip rug.

  6. Pecchenino San Luigi Bricco Botti Dolcetto di Dogliani 2013

    Pecchenino San Luigi Bricco Botti Dolcetto di Dogliani 2013

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Like Romeo and Juliet or Antony and Cleopatra, Pecchenino Dolcetto di Dogliani and lamb ragu were born to be with each other. Yes, they are delicious on their own: the San Luigi's criminally pure morello cherry, raspberry and cocoa-y flavours are a sheer joy any time but, pair it with some very slowly stewed lamb ragu, with fresh thyme, rosemary and black olives, ideally made by an Italian Mama, and the pair are exalted into a love story so beautiful that it could have been penned by The Bard himself.

  7. Poco a Poco Tempranillo Red Wine

    Poco a Poco! Tempranillo 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    Incrementalism should be taught in schools. Poco-a-Poco is the way to go. Little by little. Such an approach would put an end to such self-deluding daftness as overnight change, New Year's resolutions, brand new starts and makeovers. Anyway, Poco a Poco is the name of this wine, and it's an apt one.

    This is bright, crisp and gorgeously pure-fruited wine and that is a particularly good thing in this case, as the fruit in question comes from Rioja but, being sold without the nametag, comes without the premium. Piece-by-piece, little-by-little, Poco-a-poco you are sure to fall for this wine.

  8. Quinta do Noval 2008/09 LBV

    Quinta do Noval LBV Unfiltered Port 2011

    Now £19.00

    Was £24.00

    £19.00

    Traditions can be really odd can’t they? Take cheese-rolling in Gloucestershire, where people leg it down a hill after a nine pound round of Double Gloucester cheese, which can reach up to 70mph, in a bid to win said cheese. The tradition of treading the grapes for Port in traditional ‘lagares’ is a slightly less ridiculous tradition, with indubitably tastier results. This Port, from a simply cracking year, underwent foot-treading in a lagare and has flavours of ripe plums, stewed blackberries and a hint of sweet tobacco. It would probably go pretty well Double Gloucester, come to think of it.
  9. Reserve de Fleur Côtes du Rhône Red Wine

    Réserve de Fleur Côtes du Rhône 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Picasso's Demoiselles might not have depicted Avignon in the kindest light. In fact, those ladies weren't even from Avignon, they were from a sporting house in Barcelona! The real Avignon is a lovely place, and even Picasso would have struggled to introduce any kind of grotesquerie to this delightfully youthful Côtes du Rhône, grown in the area surrounding the town.

    Packed with clean, fresh and juicy blackcurrant fruit, the wine is also suitable for those of a vegetarian or vegan persuasion. Unlike Pablo's Demoiselles, who didn't seem entirely cut out for any kind of sensitivity, if we're honest.

  10. Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2014

    Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2015

    Now £14.00

    Was £16.00

    £14.00

    The ridonculously talented Matt Thompson, at Saint Clair, featured on one of our 'Inspire-themed posters, saying 'I became a winemaker because, as a wine drinker, I needed to find a way to make it tax-deductible'. We like his style.

    But, when he made this red, he didn't just get a tax break on Pinot Noir, he created something beautiful: a gentle giant, with mellow Morello cherry, pine needles and hints of smoke. Take that, taxman!
