Jean Grivot Nuits-St-Georges Boudots 2015

Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-St-Georges 2015, 1er Cru Les Boudots (£660 per 6-bottle case, in bond, Goedhuis, Justerini & Brooks)  Although the price of the Grivot wines this vintage veers into eye-watering territory, the quality remains unparalleled. I particularly like this Nuits for its gamey depth of flavour, allied...

A stunning white Nuits-St-Georges 2015

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair Nuits-St-Georges Blanc 2015, Clos des Grandes Vignes 1er Cru Monopole (£795 per 6-bottle case, in bond, Justerini & Brooks)  My scribbled note for this white Nuits-St-George kicks of with the words ‘delightful, absolutely delightful’. From me, this is saying something. Tasted in the damp,...

Muga Rioja blanco 2015

Muga Rioja Blanco 2015, Spain (£9.99, Majestic or via Wine Searcher)  This Muga white Rioja is a rare example of an elegantly oaked white under a tenner on the UK high street (and indeed elsewhere, if you care to check the Wine Searcher link). It made a seamless pairing...

Côté Mas Vermentino 2015

Côté Mas Vermentino 2015, France (£8.49, Waitrose or via Wine Searcher)  I'll admit it. When I first saw the recipe that Atul Kochhar was cooking on Saturday Kitchen - sumptuous spiced roast chicken with bread sauce, brioche-filled stuffing and gravy, all with an aromatic Indian twist -...

Rouzé Reuilly Rouge Pinot Noir 2014

Domaine Jacques Rouzé Reuilly Rouge Pinot Noir 2014, France (£130 per case, Lupton Wines)  It's rare to find a wine region described as somewhere 'Jeremy Corbyn would buy his Y-fronts', or a winemaker 'who makes Jeff Capes look like John Inman'. But then not every wine merchant is like...

Bienbebido Queso Tempranillo 2013

Bienbebido Queso Tempranillo Vintae 2013, 14.5%, Spain (from £6.99, Majestic)  This Bienbebido is a fantastic value, really satisfying red which I matched with Korean grilled beef short ribs by Jordan Bourke on Saturday Kitchen. I do like a wine that doesn't take itself too seriously. This bottle is a prime...

Zenato Villa Flora Lugana 2015

Zenato Villa Flora Lugana 2015, Italy (£9.99, Waitrose, or via Wine Searcher)  I took in the sights of a delightfully festive (and Beatrix Potter-themed) Leeds Castle in this Christmassy episode of Saturday Kitchen - before selecting what is a consistently delicious and great value Lugana to go with salt cod...

Morandé One to One País 2015

Morandé One to One old vines País 2015, 12.5%, Chile (£6.99 when you buy 6+ bottles or £8.99 per single bottle, Majestic)  Sometimes wine can be just a bit too serious. That's why we all need a good healthy dose of a wine like this Morandé old vines...

Le Montrachet 2007 Lucien Le Moine

Le Montrachet 2007, Lucien Le Moine, Burgundy, France - en jeroboam (Not commercially available but see Wine Searcher for other vintages) OK, OK, so it came as the 12th wine during a marathon dinner at the domaine. And yet, for a dinner positively swilling in fine wine of the highest...
