Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste 5eme Cru Classe, Pauillac 2018

Antonio Galloni, Vinous 96/100 The 2018 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fabulous, just as it was from barrel. Strong Cabernet inflections soar out of the glass, giving the wine a compelling aromatic profile... laced with the essence of graphite, dried herbs, menthol and dark fruit. One of the most classic (for lack of a better word) wines in the Left Bank in 2018, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is super-impressive right out of the gate. Grand-Puy-Lacoste is ultimately a wine of tremendous class that remains restrained and aristocratic in breeding. Don't miss it. Drink 2028-2048

CVNE Contino Reserva Rioja 2018

The Contino Reserva 2018, crafted by the esteemed CVNE in the heart of Rioja, stands as a testament to the region's capacity for producing wines with exceptional character and depth. This vintage... blends 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, and 5% shared between Garnacha and Mazuelo, showcasing a masterful amalgamation of Rioja's signature grapes. Aged meticulously for two years in oak barrels, with 20% American oak contributing sweet, vanilla hints and 80% French oak offering structure and spice, the wine achieves a harmonious complexity. Following its barrel aging, it further matured in the bottle within the cool, dark cellars of the winery, allowing its flavors to meld and mellow until its release. The tasting experience of the Contino Reserva 2018 unfolds with an intense nose that captivates with notes of strawberry and blueberry at the forefront, intertwined with the warmth of vanilla. This fruitiness is elegantly layered with touches of liquorice and balsamic, culminating in a finish that boasts an elegant touch of oak. The palate is invigorated by a great freshness that balances the wine's depth, ensuring that each sip is as inviting as the last. This Reserva pairs splendidly with a wide range of dishes. Its versatility shines when accompanied by Grilled and Roasted Red Meats, where the wine's robustness complements the savory flavors of the meat. For Pizza and Pasta lovers, its fruity and balsamic notes enhance the richness of the tomato-based sauces and ingredients. The wine also stands up beautifully to the heartiness of Casseroles and Stews, adding a layer of complexity and elegance to these comfort dishes. It is a great match for creamy cheese or mature strong cheese, highlighting its adaptable pairing ability. A top flight Rioja that is as good as it gets for less than £20 a bottle is great value and has a place reserved for it in my cellar.

Gaja, Barbaresco 2018

From the hardcore oenophile to the casual wine buff, I can attest to the power and purity of Gaja's Barbaresco, with this vintage having the most sumptuous perfume of blood oranges, orange peel,... straweberries, redcurrants, violets, rose petal and a touch of cedar. On the palate it is supremely elegant, with finessed tannins, dark chocolate, some balasamic elements and red berries. The acidity is mouthwatering and the finsh lingers for many minutes, enticing you to take another sip. Gaja seem to have returned to a much more traditional style of nebbiolo and the wine is that more special because of it.

Rosso Valdimonte 2018

This is a UK exclusive, Sangiovese blend with maturity at an unfathomable price which is utter perfection for drinking this summer. Wines like this are what working in the wine trade is all about –... a small volume of exceptional, mature red wine parcel from an artisanal producer at an incredible price tag. La Palerna sits high at 550-600m right on the Tuscan/Umbrian border. Thankfully for all of us, they are on the Umbrian side of the border and the price reflects this. At this altitude, the wines have a wonderful freshness and elegance. Yields are low, grapes are hand harvested and sorted, and such care and precision are taken in the winemaking which is evident in the quality of the wine. We have visited Bordeaux classified growths and Grand Cru Burgundies who take the same level of care in production. The overriding reason for all of this is perhaps down to winemaker extraordinaire, Mauro Monicchi who has worked across Bordeaux and the South of France, he now oversees winemaking for first class estates across Tuscany, namely Montalcino and Montepulciano. The quality of wines can also be put down to owner Luigi Merendelli’s philosophy to produce “only great wines”. I can confirm they do just that across the board, but this red is a home run at this price. The wonderful thing about central Italian reds are they are incredibly versatile when pairing with food and can be drunk all year around, indeed these are the wines to open at dinner parties or have at weddings.

Vignerons des Terres Secretes, Pouilly-Fuisse, Les Preludes 2018

A glorious Pouilly-Fuissé from a single sloping plot of vines with a rich bedrock of limestone. Fermented equally in oak and temperature controlled stainless steel vats to give both concentration... and complexity. Delicate aromas of white flowers and citrus, with intense fruit and notes of hazelnuts, almonds, vanilla and flint. It has a lovely lingering finish and is a fantastic example of this famous appellation. All this at under £20 a bottle for a superb white Burgundy.
