Sadly the weather this weekend doesn't look great to say the least! But we thought we would bring some happiness back with these bold reds! Hopefully a nice glass can save the day...




L'Expression de Margaux 2007 @ £23.95 - Buy it here!

Margaux's wines are among Bordeaux's finest, so we are really excited to offer you this parcel from one of the region's top estates - produced from their younger vines it offers a taste of true greatness at an affordable price. A dark ruby/purple colour is accompanied by notes of spring flowers, black currants, and blackberries, a soft, lush, medium to full-bodied mouth feel, and delicacy allied to impressive depth, texture, and length. The richly fruity, delicious, already complex 2007 Margaux is another surprise and delicious to drink now.

Chateau Cissac, Haut Medoc 2010 @ £16.95 - Buy it here!
Chateau Cissac’s very interesting Haut Medoc is a ripe, refined Medoc from one of the most incredible vintages in living memory. This huge blend is aged in oak casks (old and new) for up to 20 months before bottling. With strong and beautiful aromas of dark fruits, you’re sure to have a fantastic time with this ruby wonder.

Fleur de Thenac, Cotes de Bergerac 2009 @ £9.95 - Buy it here!
With a truly stunning and intense purple robe, this juice has a complex nose which draws you in towards the wine’s depth and richness. Red fruits mixed with roasted hazelnuts and spicy vanilla oak. This is a powerful yet smooth and balanced wine which will age beautifully.

We thought we would show you what happens when two very different producers from very different places use the same grapes. There can sometimes be a world of difference!




Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2012 @ £10.95

Guigal is arguably the most famous producer in the Rhône Valley. Founded by Étienne Guigal in 1946, his son Marcel is almost single-handedly responsible for the regions resurgence over the last few decades. This full-bodied wine offers a robust core of dark fruit, and savoury white pepper notes that make it a superb food wine.

Torbreck Barossa Valley "Old Vines" GSM 2012 @ £14.95

Garnet robe with flicks of pruple, a gorgeous high-toned aroma of five spice, créme de cassis, black cherries with a background of roasted earth, leather and herbs. A perfect match with hearty meats and stews, game and hard cheeses.

Both of these wines are made from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre but are wonderfully different! Come and give them a go. Cheers!
