Chateau Talbot Connetable De Talbot 2007 (1x 75cl)

Chateau Talbot, we trust, needs minimal introduction: a Bordeaux Quatrième Cru chateau (and a veritable institution) in Medoc’s St-Julien AOC. Their grand vin, or first wine, is a Bordeaux superstar: thing is, you’ll seldom find it at less than £50 a bottle … and then you need to cellar it for ten years. This, the Connetable, on the other hand, is the chateau’s second wine and this, the 2007, has been cellaring nicely; supple body, soft tannins: check. This is a big but complex wine, as you might expect from its heritage. It does all that you would expect of a big, Left Bank red – cedar, vanilla, tobacco boxes – yes, all of that – atop the cassis of the Cab Sauv and the plums of the Merlot.

Chateau d'Angludet Cru Bourgeois 2007 (1x 75cl)

Chateau d’Angludet is a seriously elegant Margaux without the price tag. The chateau sits surrounded by Cru Classé neighbours but is itself classed a Cru Bourgeois, meaning that this, their first wine, comes in at around half the price of its neighbours, yet at a very comparable quality. A classic mix of Cabernet Sauvignon (the majority), Merlot and Petit Verdot, this ready-to-drink Left Bank specimen has all the subtle, unique and classic Margaux flavours and is quite brilliant with big meats and cheeses. Or lay it down: this one will continue to improve for easily another ten years.

Tiefenbrunner Pinot Nero 'Turmhoff' DOC 2013 (1x 75cl)

Ruby red with a deep garnet sheen, this wine has a delicate bouquet of blackberries, raspberries and cherries. It is smooth and fullbodied, showing balance and elegance on the palate, and has both youthful force and pedigree. An excellent accompaniment to rabbit.

Finca Las Moras Reserve Malbec 2014 (1x 75cl)

We supply a good few restaurants around Perthshire and this Malbec went onto their racks (and off them again) faster than anything else in 2016. The Argentine Malbec surge remains the red “thing of the moment”. But there are many poor versions out there, especially at low prices: we’ve found (and rejected) a good many that are awkwardly metallic, too jammy and gum-coatingly tannic. The Las Moras gets it just right, and has duly won a hatful of awards. The higher altitude of its vines means fruitiness (red berries and plums) without jamminess; the high sunshine means ripeness without harsh tannins. This one works well with so many foods yet doesn’t rely on food to be at its best. Seriously recommended.
