  • Bordeaux Supérieur 2017

    The 2017 red has turned out really well and has become our firm house favourite. Easy, all-round drinking. £11.95 a bottle.

    Château Bauduc

    Bordeaux Supérieur 2017

    A supple and quietly fruity Bordeaux red. Recommended, especially for weeknight, uncomplicated enjoyment. £11.95 a bottle. 2017 was the year of the late Spring frost and we had to be pretty selective about the final blend for this. Bottled in the...

  • Bordeaux Supérieur 2016

    This is a lovely, elegant red with ripe, dark fruits and an easy-going texture. 2016 was a top Bordeaux vintage. £11.95 a bottle.

    Château Bauduc

    Bordeaux Supérieur 2016

    It's not a light wine although all too easy to drink. Best with good food and we've been decanting this. Or keep for a year or two. £11.95 a bottle. The back label: 'This is a classic Bordeaux blend of three quarters Merlot and 25% Cabernet...

    Château Bauduc

    Bordeaux Supérieur 2015

    This is mostly Merlot, with a dash of spicy oak, and it's drinking well now. £11.95 a bottle. 2015 was a terrific vintage, we think, especially for the Merlot-driven wines of Bordeaux’s Right Bank. This is a reasonably punchy Bordeaux that...

  • Les Trois Hectares Rouge 2016

    A lovely, powerful wine from a special plot of vines and aged in small French oak barrels. 2016 is a top Bordeaux vintage.

    Château Bauduc

    Les Trois Hectares Rouge 2016

    Although this quite a full-on red with plenty of what you might call 'structure', it has bags of attractive fruit, a creamy texture and balancing freshness. Drink or keep for a a few years - whatever. Decanting recommended but not essential. £14.75...

  • Château La Cardonne - Médoc 2010 - Bottle front

    AC Médoc. Classic Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot from a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur and an excellent vintage.

    Château La Cardonne, Médoc

    Château La Cardonne 2010

    It's pretty rare to find a quality 2010 claret at this price - including VAT, UK duty and delivery for a dozen - and from a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur to boot. Andrew McInnes's strategy is a most unusual one for Bordeaux - to cellar his wines until...

  • Château La Gorce - Médoc 2012 - Bottle front

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

    Château La Gorce, Médoc

    Château La Gorce 2012

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

    This is mostly Merlot, with a dash of spicy oak, and drinking well. The same wine as the Bordeaux Superieur 2015, by the way. £22.75 a magnum (150cl). 2015 was a terrific vintage, we think, especially for the Merlot-driven wines of...

    Château de Lisennes, Bordeaux

    Cuvée 7 Sans 2019
