2017 AMANCAYA Bodegas Caro
Mendoza Argentina 14% Red
Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec.
At once ripe with plenty of cassis, blackberry and blueberry, but also delicate herbal notes, this has a rather complex and delicate nose. Quite a sleek, elegant wine for Mendoza with fine tannins and nice freshness, car...(read more)James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com

2019 LE G DE GUIRAUD Bordeaux Blanc Château Guiraud
Left Bank Bordeaux France 0% White
Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc.
These are always enticing and ultimately rewarding wines to drink and the 2019, the result of a slightly warmer yet balanced vintage, is no exception. In fact that extra touch of ripeness pushes forward the ripe citrus,...(read more)L&S
2018 CHÂTEAU DE CÉRONS Graves
Bordeaux France 13.5% Red
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.
Wow. This is just what you'd hope for from this smart address in the little known Cerons appellation of the Graves. Caroline and Xavier have been working hard to raise the profile of their reds here - and they seem to be...(read more)L&S

2019 SANCERRE Chavignol Domaine Vincent Delaporte
Loire France 13% White
As ever this is beautifully fresh, a lovely citrus tang and salty zip at the outset but it is the weight of perky fruit that fills out the middle and drives this on, making it so much more impressive than almost anyone e...(read more)L&S
2018 BARBERA D'ALBA Campass Cigliuti
Alba Piedmont Italy 15% Red

2019 BARDA PINOT NOIR Bodega Chacra
Rio Negro Patagonia Argentina 12% Red

2018 FIRST FLIGHT Viognier Domaine G&J Bott
Northern Rhône Rhône France 13.5% White
This bright, pure Viognier comes from plots high up above Ampuis. It has a freshness to it that is hard to resist. Clearly Viognier, but miles from the heavy, fat Peachy style which is all too common here. This is nicely...(read more)L&S
