    AC Médoc. We're also drinking this lovely, mature Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend that's just hitting its peak. £15 a bottle.

    Château La Gorce, Médoc

    Château La Gorce 2012

    Over to the Left Bank of the Gironde and up into the Médoc. I've overlooked this wine in the past because it has a rather staid, old fashioned label, though our recent tastings show I've been guilty of judging this book by its cover. The 2012 is...

    Château La Cardonne 2012

    The 2012 La Cardonne is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc and was aged for 14 months in French oak. This is a lovely, medium-bodied claret that's just hitting its peak, and 2012 has always been a softer, balanced vintage...
