    Château Sénilhac

    Château Sénilhac, Haut Medoc 2010 Spectator

    £13.25

    The 2010 Château Sénilhac (5) is an Haut-Médoc of great style and absolutely ready to drink. It would certainly keep until next Christmas but I’d suggest getting stuck straight in. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc aged in French oak for 12 months, it’s quintessential claret — soft, smooth and sophisticated. Bung it in a decanter or carafe and let it really show off. £13.25 down from £13.95.

  • Clotilde Davenne

    Clotilde Davenne

    Clotilde Davenne, Saint-Bris 2014 Spectator

    £11.95

    The 2014 Clotilde Davenne Sauvignon de Saint Bris (1) is a delightful curiosity, a Sauvignon Blanc from Burgundy and what is really Chardonnay country. Clotilde Davenne does indeed make a delicious white Burgundy but this, produced in the tiny Appellation Contrôlée area of Saint Bris on the very edges of Chablis, is 100 per cent Sauvignon Blanc, cold-fermented and with no hint of oak. It’s crisp, clean and refreshing, with a strong herbal character, a touch of gooseberry and a keen acidity. £11.95 down from £12.95.

    Domaine Hospices de Beaujeu Morgon 2015 Spectator

    Domaine Hospices de Beaujeu Morgon 2015 Spectator

    £12.45

    The wines of Beaujolais are having a welcome renaissance and are as good as they’ve ever been. Certainly, the 2014 Domaine Hospices de Beaujeu, Morgon (3), is spot on, as full of juicy, bramble fruit on the palate as it is on the nose. All too often in the past I’ve been disappointed with wines from the region that promise much at first sniff but let you down at first sip. They’re like freshly ground coffee, which never tastes as good as it smells. This, though, is gloriously fruity and succulent. It’s dry, of course, but with a touch of sweetness on the edge and an almost thirst-quenchingly fine finish. £12.45 down from £12.95.

  • L'Autre de Sociando-Mallet

    £16.45
    L'Autre de Sociando-Mallet

    L’Autre de Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc 2008 Spectator

    £16.45

    the 2008 L’Autre de Sociando- Mallet (6), made from grapes grown in the vineyards of mighty Château Sociando- Mallet, the cult Cru Bourgeois of the Haut- Médoc. The estate’s official second wine is La Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet but this is certainly of equal quality, a wine first created in 2003 and reserved ever since for the top restaurants of France. I’ve no idea how FVD got their mitts on it but full marks for doing so — it’s a belter. Don’t keep it, just drink it. £16.45 down from £16.95.
