  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Cabaret Rosé 2016

    Cabaret Rosé 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    ***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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Cantine Settesoli Aglianico 2016

    Cantine Settesoli Aglianico 2016

    £8.00

    £8.00

    Seven brothers used the money their father left them to plant a vineyard. New to such a venture, they called in a French winemaker for advice, but given the risk was theirs, made it clear they had the final say.

    Just before their first harvest, their mother passed away. While the brothers attended her funeral, the French winemaker declared the grapes ready to pick. But the workers refused, saying they must wait before picking the grapes, for 'seven sons'. As the Sicilian workers spoke no French, and he no Italian, they communicated in smatterings of English, and the Frenchman understood them to mean another seven days of sunshine. Thus the grapes remained on the vines an extra week, the rich, peppery, berry flavours growing more intense by the hour. So positive was the outcome, the seven extra days of sun have been granted every vintage since.
  7. 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.
  8. Carta Vieja Merlot Red Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Merlot 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Another major minor-miracle in the Oddbins wine range and a regular member of our bestsellers list, this is a red that keeps the customer in search of good valued wine very satisfied indeed. Minor, because of its diminutive price tag but very major when it comes to what you get for your money.
    This Chilean red's distinction is its refinement and understatement. A kind of light, softness with a freshness and vitality that easily puts it next to baby Clarets for class, balance and great food-friendliness.
  9. Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    This Sauvignon just goes from strength to strength when it comes to great valued wine. Achieving an astonishing standard for the price, this white really shows true Sauvignon Blanc character.
    Carta Vieja have a brilliant knack of getting serious zeal across in both their reds, and whites like this one. This is a crisp, clean white wine with a lovely note of elderflower. Cracking party wine. Cracking everydayer. Open it up and take some time out to relax.
  10. Casa Lluch Verdil Spanish White Wine

    Casa Lluch Verdil 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    This dry, delicate and very endearing Spanish white from an almost unheard of grape - Verdil - reminds one a little of Sauvignon Blanc but that's to sell its individuality short.

    If we were to make a music video to describe this wine, we would film a cowboy, chopping a pineapple seductively in an oasis in the vivid sunshine of the Arizona desert, with the chirping of crickets emanating from the lush vegetation and someone spraying themselves with a hose in the background.

    Why? Because this wine is simultaneously dry, refreshing, sexy, herby, zippy and evocative. See for yourself!
  11. Celler San Rafel 'Joana' Montsant 2016 Spanish Red Wine

    Cellers Sant Rafel 'Joana' Montsant 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Being a winemaker is a lonely business. Tending vines, maintaining equipment, managing the cellar. With little time for socialising, finding a partner can be complicated. At least, that's how one particular winemaker justified his preference for using personals ads. But often the partner ended up being complicated too. He wished people could be straightforward and approachable, like wine, but nevertheless, he persevered.

    He had almost given up looking for someone, when late one evening - after a rather heavy tasting session - he managed to mix his notes up. He sent his tasting notes to the local personals column, and his 'Seeking' advert to the wine label printers. "Frank, tasty, cheeky, well balanced, delicate and very pleasant", Joana was the perfect match. It's best left unsaid what got printed on the label...
  12. Château Cambon la Pelouse 2013 Red Wine

    Château Cambon la Pelouse 2013

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Like the teacher at school who really understood how to get the best out of you, this Bordeaux is both serious and stimulating and, underneath it all, is a bit of a softy.

    Unusually for a left bank Bordeaux, this red wine is Merlot heavy - 60% to be exact. That Merlot helps to soften the tannins and gives this deep Bordeaux a delicate, silky texture that secures your attention, whilst it educates you as to all the charms of a decent Claret. An edifying tipple.
  13. Château Cantemerle Les Allées de Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2010 Red Wine

    Château Cantemerle Les Allées de Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2010

    £25.00

    £25.00

    This red wine reminds us very much of former Conservative leader and This Week regular Michael Portillo. Though it be part of the old-guard, red (or pink or turquoise) trouser brigade, it brings a modern quality and decency to proceedings that people can admire, whatever their politics.

    It is generously fruity [for a Haut-Médoc] and is enjoyable young, although it has shown itself to have brilliant ageing potential. It retains a charming elegance in everything it does and is comfortably toasty on the sofa, any week.
  14. Château Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe 2012 France Bordeaux Red Wine

    Château Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe 2012

    £23.00

    £23.00

    The marvellous thing about good Saint-Estèphe is the flood of minerality that can streak through it and the ample black fruit character that balances it out. Well, this wine doesn't have any of that... Only joking (we're funny aren't we!) Don't worry, the 2008 Château Capbern Gasqueton has all that in bucket loads and, what's more, it won't attempt Dad-humour... *hangs head in shame*. This is a classy Saint-Estèphe from a Château that has stayed in the family from 10 generations no less and, in that time, they've seriously honed the art of winemaking.
  15. Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Minervois is a region that has been making wine as far back as the Romans and beyond. In fact, the name derives from the region's city, Minerve, which in turn takes its name from the Roman goddess Minerva. Minerva was the god of wisdom, poetry, arts and magic. As art and wisdom are synonymous with great wine, we (Oddbins Historical Research Department) believe Minervois was in high cahoots with her work colleague Dionysus. He was in charge of the God's celestial wine store. Although not documented we are certain they are responsible for ensuring the almost limitless production of robust spicy reds that has flowed out from this land ever since its Minervoisation. This red wine is from Minervois la Liviniere, a place the benevolent duo made sure always made the best wines in the area. Rich black cherry, black plums smothered in herbs and spices. So when you are fortunate enough to have a glass of this red- raise your chalice to the ancient wisdom of a Roman Goddess and her vinous partner in crime!
  16. Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    Château Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    £130.00

    £130.00

    Baron Phillippe De Rothschild is not just a name on a fancy Bordeaux bottle. Along with his global success as a wine producer, he was also a Grand Prix racing car driver, writer, art patron, film producer, sailor, and poet. But what the world really remembers is his wine making innovations and his relentless pursuit of excellence. Realising Chateau Clerc Milon's quality and enormous potential he purchased this vineyard in 1970. Thus today we are treated to one of his legacies - Clerc Milon's stunning red wine. The 2010 is a full-bodied and forthright wine. Ripe red fruits, orange and chocolate notes. Framed in velvety tannins and a long finish. Rothschild was a man of many talents, but one of his best was his recognition of talent. Such as this outstanding Chateau.
  17. Château Coussin Rosé 2016 Vintage Wine

    Château Coussin Rosé 2016

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Human lives are full of eureka moments. These run the gamut from the earth-shattering "the world is not flat" or "he/she is the one" kind to the smaller but no less revelatory discoveries of chipotle Tabasco or the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V commands on a keyboard.

    This delicate looking wine lies somewhere in between, because it's unequivocal proof that rosé can be incredibly serious stuff. It carries the poise, elegance and flawless complexion of Grace Kelly and then explodes with pink grapefruit, passion fruit, strawberry sorbet and lemon sherbet.
  18. Chateau D'Armailhac Pauillac 2006 - Magnum

    Château D'Armailhac Pauillac 2006 - Magnum

    £145.00

    £145.00

    Wind, rain, hail, frost and firey heat. Many elements throw themselves against the vines and grapes as they grow during the seasons. From this determined toil, it's amazing how the harvest is shaped into wine. Despite all the challenges, the '06 vintage in Bordeaux gave stunning results. Such as the hardy Château d'armailhac 2006. Gifting us with a beautifully mineral driven red that's fresh in style. With ripe red raspberry, black currants, toasty vanilla oak and silky tannins. From weather beaten and worn then weaved into wine! This chateau has seen much hardship, resisted it all and gives the results in a top quality red.
  19. Chateau de L'Abbaye Haut Medoc Red Wine

    Château de L'Abbaye Haut Medoc 2013

    £12.00

    £12.00

    The head Abbot of Haut-Médoc was utterly fed up. The vow of silence and bowl hair cuts was getting very tedious. He had a field festooned with fat cows and multiple mushrooms in the meadows . He really wanted a decent glass of red with his meat, so the Abbey gave up the altar decor helpline service (the vow of silence wasn't working with that anyway), and decided to make this red wine. Intense blueberries, plum and oak aromas and a palate of boasting power and finesse. After the vintage, the Abbot happily sat down for a meal and contemplated the moral of this story - 'Don't get whiney, make wine!'.
  20. Chateau de la Roulerie Anjou Blanc Wine France

    Château de la Roulerie Anjou Blanc 2016

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Steeped in exciting history, this wine is like a really good Brontë novel, or maybe a Dan Brown. Dating way back to 1070, Le Château de la Roulerie is a staggeringly beautiful, ivy-clad property that has one of the gently-sloped Loire Valley's few terraced vineyards. It is thought to take its name from a 14th century knight, Chevalier Raoul.

    Its more recent history has seen its winemaking facilities return to the Château after 20 years, under the supervision of current owner, Philippe Germain. Fashioned 100% from one of our favourite white grapes, this is a bracing, exotic wine that more than does justice to its idyllic surroundings.
  21. Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon 2013 White Wine

    Château de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon 2013

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux Du Layon shows a beautiful golden colour, it is elegant, delicate and filled to the brim with jammy fruit aromas. A fresh and balanced white wine from the Loire Valleys with an enticing array of blood oranges, fig, peach, ginger and apricots both on the nose and the palate.
  22. Chateau de Ricaud Cadillac Red Wine

    Château de Ricaud Cadillac 2012

    £14.00

    £14.00

    The Cadillac luxury car became so popular in America that the term 'The Cadillac of...' meant the best thing in that category. In 1980, Alain Thiénot bought a bottle of Château de Ricaud Cadillac in a posh restaurant in Paris. He must have been tempted to exclaim with a snigger 'This is the Cadillac of all red wines!', but instead he was so flabbergasted by the complex bouquet of strawberry, cherry and liqourice, he bought the estate! Thiénot went on to make this winery a Côtes de Bordeaux benchmark producer. True story.
  23. Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepère Red Wine

    Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepere Red 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    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!'
  24. Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepère Rosé 2014

    Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepere Rosé 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    This wine is a serendipitous find for Oddbins and a lovely drop it is too. It is the sister wine to Château Guilhem Cuvée Prestige Rouge, which was suggested to us via The Listing (where you can recommend wines for us to stock that you have discovered on holiday). Where the Prestige Rouge is full-on and chocolatey, the rosé is a delicate flower, with aromas of rose hip, wild strawberries and white peaches. Made entirely organically, this is an all-natural discovery. Happy days.

  25. Château Haut Courneau Graves Red Wine France

    Château Haut Courneau Graves 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    With a beautiful garnet robe and appealing aromatic aromas, it follows up on the palate expressive red fruits (strawberry and blackcurrant), delivered in an elegant and round attack. The wine is well-balanced with unctuous, with silky tannins.
  26. Chateau Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur

    Château Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    The Chateau de Haute-Serre Grand Vin Seigneur Malbec is very dark in colour, with highlights of crimson. This exceptional red has a noteworthy balance with an intense concentration and elegant finesse demonstrating the power of a great malbec with its complexity. From opening the bottle immediately is the powerful bouquet of Morello cherry, blackcurrant and spice. The fresh and fruity nose is reflected on the palate which has a long, silky smooth after taste, typical of the vineyard.
  27. 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'.
  28. Chateau Leoville Barton 2011

    Château Léoville Barton 2011

    £85.00

    £85.00

    This vintage wine is a beautifully purple in colour, reflecting the high grape maturity of this red wine. It is an amazingly fresh wine with balsamic and dried citrus aromas.
  29. Chateau La Garde Pessac 2007 - Magnum

    Château La Garde Pessac 2007 - Magnum

    £55.00

    £55.00

    This red wine has the musician Tom Waits written all over it. Apparently, some of his instruments enjoy a nice claret (See above to the musical choice bit) so a magnum size would be perfect. This is a brooding Bordeaux drenched in black currant, blueberry flavours, fine-grained tannins and a brush of tobacco. Intense, expressive and offset by a gentle elegance- just like Mr. Wait's words. This wine's grapes are grown in the gravelly soils of Pessac-Léognan. Otherwise knowns as 'Graves'. Which again suits Tom's deep, gritty sonorous voice... or sometimes his song's subject matter. If Wait's isn't present to entertain, we'd recommend sampling this red, listening to Rain Dogs or Bone Machine and getting creatively cognitive with friends (trying hard not to use the word 'arty').
  30. Château La Garde 2005

    Château La Garde Pessac Leognan 2008

    £30.00

    £30.00

    So beautiful is this wine, that grown men and women have been known to drop to their knees and weep, not quite knowing what to do with all the silky, supply, velvety liquid that is contained in this bottle.

    They just weren't prepared for the red cherry and plum purity, the oceanic depths of pure fruit, and the sweet mint and myriad spices that danced across their palates like elves in a forest. They just weren't ready. Are you?
  31. Chateau Lafleur de Haute Serre Cahors

    Château Lafleur de Haute Serre-Cahors 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Chateau Lafleur de Haute-Serre is gives such pleasure to the consumer, much like a fine novel it is a wine that you want to see right through to the end. It is a powerful, well built red with lovely expressions of earthiness and black truffle on the nose. Softness and elegance dominate the palate with a wonderful balance between acidity, tannins and red fruits.
  32. Château Lalene Cuvée Prestige

    Château Lalene Cuvée Prestige 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    The Lalene is an elegant and complex wine rich with flavours of black fruit and fine grained velvety tannins, before a long satisfying finish.
  33. Chateau le Meynieu Haut Medoc 2004

    Château le Meynieu Haut Medoc 2004

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Once upon a time, you could trade a baguette, 6 cloves of garlic and a small goose for a Grand Cru Bordeaux. Sure, everyone knew they were exceptional but farm-hands could afford to drink them for lunch, paired with a spam sandwich. Maybe nostalgia and episodes of Allo' Allo' are distorting our memory... Regardless, these days, Grand Cru Bordeaux is anything but affordable; their worldwide mystique has shot prices into the stratosphere. What can we do, are we going to stop drinking quality Bordeaux? Not on your Nelly! With the unattainability of Grand Cru Classé wines its given the opportunity for Cru Bourgeois Bordeauxs such as this one, to show their incredible worth. Powerful, yet approachable with a wonderful amount of age, demonstrates you don't need to sell your private jet, to drink great Bordeaux.
  34. Château Le Virou Carmel d'Aiguevives Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye 2012

    Château Le Virou Carmel d'Aiguevives Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye 2015

    £11.00

    £11.00

    We say the following with the utmost affection for Château le Virou, as they are clearly very capable winemakers and have certainly charmed us with this silky, blackcurrant and dark chocolate-fruited cracker... but it nearly broke us trying to work out what they were talking about when describing the Château's history.

    In their words (via that most devious of translators, Google), they say: "On the road which curves of Blaye with Saint Savin, halfway between these two cities, a severe wall does not fail to intrigue the walker, seeming to dissimulate some mysterious residence to him." Exactly.
  35. Château Les Nauds Red Wine

    Château Les Nauds 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Oh spare us the "better when it was rough-and-ready" nostalgia. We remember city centres where, once upon a time, it was frankly dangerous to go out if you were a bit of a misfit. At one time, even the south-west of Bordeaux used to have stretches of mean and derelict vineland that might, if they liked the look of you, let you have a tiny amount of rough white wine.

    So hats off to the Cardarelli family for their huge and continuing investment in bringing 280 hectares of such land into the 21st century and spinning straw into gold. Now you're more than welcome to enjoy their invitingly accessible fruit-packed red wines, even if you're a punk rocker!
  36. Chateau Meaume Bordeaux Superieur 2012 - Magnum

    Château Meaume Bordeaux Superieur 2012 - Magnum

    £21.00

    £21.00

    The property of Château Méaume has been a historically significant building in France for many Centuries. It was, in fact, the country residence of Louis XIV's bodyguard; the Chevalier de la Croix Maron. His acclaims are vast; starting this fine winery, inventing double distillation to produce Cognac and of course being the inspiration for the hit 90s film, 'The Bodyguard'. Whitney Houston was evoked, to be involved in the project, after hearing how Louis XIV's bodyguard carried him 2 and a half miles out of a riot, at Oasis' set at Knebworth. The film was a tremendous success but not as much as the wine, a rich Merlot dominant blend that will surely save you from enthusiastically aggressive republicans.
  37. Château Pey La Tour Réserve 2008 - Magnum Red Wine

    Château Pey La Tour Réserve 2011 - Magnum

    £26.50

    £26.50

    This is one for Tony. No not Tony Montana. Nooo, not Tony Benn. Tony Robinson! Time Team Tony! Yes this one hails from a property that is strewn with the ruins of the Château that gave its name to the estate and we get the feeling that our Tony would just LOVE a rummage in the grounds. And when he and his mate with the ginger hair (and the quite frankly brilliant accent) grew tired, they would enjoy a drop of this accessible, full style of Bordeaux, no doubt. With its impressive fruit it's immediately pleasing but it brings the complexity and nuance you'd expect to go hand in hand with an eventful and lengthy pedigree.
  38. Château Placelière Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

    Château Placeliere Muscadet-Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2016 *ORGANIC*

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Muscadet is a gentle soul; kind of like the Joni Mitchell of the wine world; and its playful floral, citrusy charm has been coaxed out expertly in the hands of the Famille Lieubeau, who have been making wine in their lovely corner of the Loire Valley for six generations.

    Much the same as you wouldn't play techno at a folk festival in rural Oxfordshire, you wouldn't serve an oyster platter with Shiraz, you would serve it with this quince, pear and wet-stone Muscadet. Whilst playing Joni Mitchell.
  39. 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.
  40. Château Teyssier Puisseguin-Saint-Émillion 2014

    Château Teyssier Puisseguin-Saint-Émillion 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    We reckon this wine ticks what we consider to be two pretty major boxes: Firstly, it's tasty: it speaks eloquently of the Puisseguin Saint-Émilion terroir and is supple, well-structured, with impressive length and surprising fruitiness.

    Secondly it's cracking value: at £13.00 it is a come-hither Claret that won't break the bank. You could plonk this on any dinner table, happy in the knowledge that they'll love it and you're not skint.
  41. Château Teyssier Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2013

    Château Teyssier Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2013

    £29.00

    £29.00

    Jonathan Maltus is the established maverick of Bordeaux - the novice Englishman who turned up at Château Teyssier in the 1990s, introduced new techniques, bought up new land and started producing stonking wine, the 'garagiste' way. This term refers to those making the bigger, bolder styles of Claret that emerged in that period, embraced by critics like Robert Parker. This Grand Cru is true to that style and is showing fine damson, plum, meaty and earthy flavours that should develop well with a few more years.
  42. Chateau Unang Blanc White Wine

    Château Unang Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    James King, the genius behind this delicate white wine, should change his name to James, King of Elegance. Of course, a title as grand as this must be earned...

    But we think he's rather deserving. James pours his blood, sweat and tears (not literally) in to his wines so that they deliver the perfect balance of flavour and refreshment for everyone to enjoy. The Chateau Unang Blanc, for example, offers subtle hints of star anise and paprika on the nose before fruit takes over on the palate. White peach and pineapple flavours are most prominent and follow through to the finish.

    All hail the King of Elegance!
  43. Chateau Unang Rosé Wine

    Château Unang Rosé 2015

    Now £10.50

    Was £11.50

    £10.50

    A cool glass of rosé is fast becoming the go-to summer wine and this pale coloured drop from Château Unang shows us exactly why the pink is so popular!

    Strawberry aromas lead on the nose and are accompanied by notes of lychee. The palate offers thirst-quenching citrus flavours of grapefruit and lemon, quickly followed by goosberry. And with a minerality on the finish, this refreshing drop of rosé is perfect for sharing during those long summer evenings in the garden.
  44. Chateauneuf Du Pape Domaine des Senechaux Red Wine

    Châteauneuf Du Pape Domaine des Senechaux 2013

    £35.00

    £35.00

    If this Chateauneuf Du Pape was a mythical beast it would be the Panther, a mighty cat from greek folk lore. With it's sleek yet full bodied, powerful dark berry fruit and liqourice flavours. This creature's charm is so irresistible that when it roared all things would fall prey to it's call. Equally as appropiate - the story goes the Panther is the favoured stead of Dionysus- God of the harvest, wine, festivitals and good times! A special wine for memorable occasions...or toga parties?
  45. Chablis Jules Billaud Burgundy Wine

    Chablis Jules Billaud 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    There's a lot of fuss in Chablis about a precocious new talent called Samuel Billaud, of Billaud-Simon fame. He's regarded as one of the best wine producers in the region and definitely one to keep an eye on.

    Luckily for us (and possibly down to a family feud... but we're staying out of it) he has decided to branch out on his own, so we're ecstatic to introduce the Jules Billaud Chablis, made by Samuel exclusively for Oddbins under his eldest son's name. It's guaranteed to grab you firmly by the Chablis.
  46. Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux 2015

    Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux 2015

    £29.00

    £29.00

    So Chablis. Right, it's bone dry, no oak, you might even say steely. Fetch it from a posh Premier Cru vineyard and then what happens? Tell you what, let's have a glass of that Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux then, made especially for Oddbins by Samuel Billaud, and find out.

    OK: all your white flowers and lime are there on the nose, but there's something else, on the palate - it's more delicate and balanced, with a subtle fruitiness. It's, well, elegant. A bit like you in your best frock/suit, sweetheart.

    So that's the difference, we suppose - normal Chablis: designer casuals, Premier Cru: that perfectly fitted dress/sharply tailored suit you only wear when you're really out to slay them. Sorted!
  47. Chateau De Ciffre St Chinian 2016

    Chateau De Ciffre St Chinian 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    It can be demanding work being vegan; people are constantly trying to feed you stuffed peppers, Mo Farah is always on the telly trying to sell you wheat based meat substitute products. At least, there’s the wines of Chateau de Ciffre to ease the burden. This beautiful Syrah blend has delicate flavours of cranberry, plum, dark cherry and tobacco. They also had the excellent idea not to use any egg or dairy products during the finning process, so you can sip on this Languedoc beauty, while still fondly imagining a chicken and a cow playing a carefree game of monopoly.     
  48. Chatons du Cèdre 2014 (Red Wine)

    Chatons du Cèdre 2014

    £10.75

    £10.75

    Winemaker Pascal Léon Verhaeghe is a man who fell back in love with wine, after inheriting his family's mixed-culture estate in Cahors. After an encounter with his friend Jean-Marie Guffens (who comes from Pascal's family's native Flanders, and who makes our Verget wines) he went off to do a degree in oenology and generally get skilled-up.

    He came back to his family's vineyards and proceeded to work sympathetically with the land (the vineyards are certified organic) and has low yields and a large, attentive vineyard team.

    Chaton du Cèdre is fantastically black, with liquorice, red cherry and leather notes, and a rounded palate. We're so glad he rediscovered his roots.
