Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits, Dom. Mongeard-Mugneret
Pound for pound this is by far the best Burgundy that I`ve come across this year. Lovely, clean, ripe fruit – redcurrants and red berries, fine tannins and beautifully balanced; it has a genuine Cote d`Or character to it.

Tinto Joven, Cathar
Tinto Joven, Cathar
Spanish lovers should choose Ribera del Duero for Rioja style with a touch of extra spice. Pure Tempranillo from Finca del Cuadro – deep black cherry fruit, clove and cinnamon spice – Ribera at its best.
