  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Man O' War Ironclad

    Man O' War Ironclad 2010

    £29.00

    £29.00

    With a name like Man O' War Ironclad, you'd be forgiven if you reached for the nearest potential weapon and ran to a strategic position whilst calling for back up. But we would advise against that. We would advise you to raise a white flag and surrender yourself to this sublime piece of artistry (see what we did there).

    A blend of Bordeaux grape varieties from no less than 45 different plots, which are all handled separately in the winery to maximise their individual potential before being blended, Ironclad has huge complexity of blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme.

    The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture and a streak of minerality on the finish. Needless to say, this powerful wine will strive from victory to victory for at least a decade.
  4. Mirambelo Red Wine Greece

    Mirambelo Red

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Altogether now, "Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby! Ahhhaaaa-aaaahhhh. Do you do you do you need it?" Yes, Kaiser Chiefs. The answer is yes. You do need it. But this wine's beguiling, shiny, ruby-red colour is only part of the story and there are three more reasons why you need Mirambelo in your life.

    1) the Christmassy, spicy dried fruits.

    2) the warm, vanilla-laced charm

    3) it will turn you from a mere mortal into an immortal demi-god (but only if you drink it on a full moon).
  5. Tenuta Vigneto Di Campo Delle Strie Amarone Della Valpolicella

    Tenuta Vigneto di Campo delle Strie Amarone della Valpolicella 2010

    £55.00

    £55.00

    For most mortals, tasting a bottle of Amarone, especially one of this calibre, is a bit like how we imagine the Springwatch team would feel if Sir David Attenborough just strolled on set. You don't quite know how to approach it and feel like you should probably bow or kneel down and offer to be its humble servant from here on in.

    But don't stand on ceremony: this wine is a real joy. It has bright red fruit, rich treacle, warm spice and sweet tobacco on the palate, with enough refreshing acidity to leave your palate begging for more.
  6. Vina Amezola Rioja Reserva 2010 Red Wine

    Viña Amézola Rioja Reserva 2010

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Rioja is the ultimate comfort wine. It's like raiding the kitchen before hitting the hay.

    The trempranillio grape gives generously ripe red fuits- strawberry and cherry flavours, like the guiltily secreted dessert found at the back of the fridge. Fragrant spicy notes smell of an old book and silky textured like well worn pyjamas.

    The wine's kept in an oak barrel endowing it with soft fluffy vanilla flavours. Like a massive pillow and duvet. Night night...
  7. World's End Against the Wind 2010

    World's End Against the Wind 2010

    £49.00

    £49.00

    Jonathan Maltus has his feet in two camps: one at Château Teyssier, where he found fame as an avant-garde, 'garragiste' winemaker, and one in the Napa Valley, where he makes the stonking World' End wines, which have a discernible French lilt, like Little Sister. This Cabernet Franc has gorgeously rounded corners, and has oceans of sweet raspberry, coffee and mocha flavours and a structure to put the Golden Gate Bridge to shame. Californian heaven.
  8. World's End Little Sister 2010

    World's End Little Sister 2010

    £49.00

    £49.00

    If Jonathan Maltus made Merlot, it would probably be the best Merlot in the world. Oh, wait, he does... and some people might think it is.

    Made in some of the best vineyards in California, by Mr Maltus, who is hailed as a 'visionary' by critic Robert Parker, it is a fleshy, luscious Merlot, with nuanced plum, damson and black cherry fruit and an interesting green olive twist.

    Put it this way: if you put us in a room with a bottle of this and a slab of decent mature cheddar, you wouldn't see us for a long, long time...
