1. Crémant de Loire ‘Les Quarterons’ Amirault | £15.50
This delicious glass of fizz is made in exactly the same traditional method as Champagne, so looks and tastes much more expensive than it is! Rich yet fresh with citrus and apple fruit on the palate balanced by a fine, elegant mousse.
2. Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Rosé | £15.95
This Crémant from Burgundy is wonderfully light pink in colour, with just the right balance of freshness and red fruit concentration you want from a sparkling rosé. It's a perfect treat, particularly in the warmer months.
3. Champagne André Clouet Grand Cru | £29.95
This Grand Cru fizz from André Clouet (available in magnums too) is a ‘Blanc de Noir’, being made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape. Rich & biscuity in style, this is brilliant value for Grand Cru Champagne and more than stands up to those from the famous Grand Marque houses, and looks the part too.
4. Domaine Des Monticoles Rosé | £11.50
Utterly gluggable, totally delicious and super refreshing. Oh... and great value too!
5. Le Tuffeau Sauvignon Blanc, Languedoc | £8.50
The most popular white wine on our list. Super-fresh, zingy Sauvignon with vibrant, ripe citrus-fruit aromas that continue on the palate, tempered by a wonderful balance and rounded mouth feel. Great with food or by itself.
6. Le Choix de Voltaire Viognier, IGP d'Oc | £10.25
This popular grape variety from the Languedoc is rich, creamy and full-bodied with juicy peach and apricot fruit. A real easy-drinker, it’s perfect if you’re not sure whether you’re entertaining Sauvignon or Chardonnay fans.
7. Saint-Véran Magnum, Julien Collovray, Burgundy | £40.00
Julien's signature wine, sourced from St Véran vineyards that are soon to be awarded premier Cru status, has a wonderful, rich and opulent mouthfeel, with stone-fruit flavours, a slight floral lift and weighty body. Wonderful, affordable Burgundy.
Bella Fiore is a smooth and silky Italian red that never fails to impress with its intense bouquet of blackcurrants, prunes and its long finish. It's one of our all time bestsellers and we have yet to meet anyone who dislikes it!
9. Le Choix de Voltaire Pinot Noir, IGP d'Oc | £10.95
This makes a great pairing with its sister white wine, and has a light, fragrant nose with raspberry and strawberry fruit aromas. Silky tannins with redcurrant and raspberry fruit on the palate and a rounded finish.
10. Valserrano Rioja Crianza | £13.25
Also available in magnums, this Crianza Rioja is lots of wine for the money. Classic in style with woody notes, off-set with a silky, velvety fruit structure of wild strawberries and forest fruits. Gorgeous by itself or with food.
