Domaine Horgelus Sauvignon and Gros Manseng 2017

Forget Cloudy Bay, forget Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre, this Horgelus Sauvignon/Gros Manseng blend costs almost half the price and delivers as much if not more. Typically it shows bright, lifted notes of lemon/lime, melon and grapefruit and a delicate herbaceous character. The Sauvignon Blanc element brings a classic nettle and elderflower zip, while the Gros Manseng gives a gorgeous tropical fruit depth. Endlessly quaffable. Drink from: the moment it's in your possession. Drink until: the bottle is empty.

Dolinebrune 'Roc Blanc' Mas Brunet, Domaine de Brunet 2016

A ray of sunshine from the south of France. The blend of Viognier, Vermentino, and Grenache Blanc hits the nose with hay, a touch of lavender, rose petal and the richness of quince or membrillo. The palate has a textured gristiness - it's fleshy and balanced with juicy tropical fruits and remarkable drinkability. This was made to slake thirsts in one of France's hottest regions. Here's hoping we have a summer that warrants its liberal application!

Pinot Blanc Portrait Philippe Zinck 2016

It has that handy thing of being neither Chardonnay or Sauvignon, so you’re not going to upset anyone, yet it appeals to people who like one or the other, but it’s no compromise; it happily replaces a Macon, Chablis or unoaked Chardonnays but has some of the aromatics and fruit of a generous Chenin. The aromas are a bit like ripe pear, melon and apples all in one with floral notes. It has good texture and the really expands and fills the mouth, with a nice light fresh tingle. Open a bottle and return to it 3 or 4 days later and it will still be delicious.

Domaine Castera Jurancon Sec 2017

There are certain wine regions you know are capable of producing sensational and distinct wines but for one reason or another they have not really reached that level. Jurancon is just such a region where over half the wine is made by the coop and most of the rest is made by producers who have not really caught up with the market. At a wine fair in Montpellier recently I hit upon a very special producer. Frank Lihour is a young, fifth generation winemaker from Monein, who has lit a fire under this sleepy region with wines that sing with Jurancon purity and terroir. Franck has made wines for over 10 years around the world (including, it turns out, at our friends at Beaumont winery in South Africa) where he picked up many ideas to improve the quality of wine back home. He gingerly introduced them to his father, and now has taken over full throttle, and wow, these wines are superb!

Pouilly-Fume Domaine du Bouchot 2015 (Organic)

Bright light lemon zest and pith with wet stone, a touch of cheese rind and chalk dust on the nose. A fresh, cool summer’s morning. The palate is crisp; bracing; Sancerre-like in its energy. Electric citrus running over stones with a hint of creaminess to it. This is that sort of jolting, vibrant white that thrills on the palate – light, brilliant bottled sunshine. Invigorating. Classic in style - this wine embodies the focused minerality of the Kimmeridgian soil. 13%

Artisan Vignoble du Reveur 2016

A blend of Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer with 10 days of skin contact, making an orange wine. It is arguably our first orange wine at Swig, considering this for quite sometime we wanted to be sure to find the right one. Artisan brings us to a different universe of flavours! It is definitely spicy and exotic, slightly hoppy and freshly grounded white pepper, pink grapefruits, mandarin as well and mango skin and lychee flavours. Fresh and flavoursome as we like it, this wine is original and addictive. To be consumed slightly chilled.

Turner Pageot Les Choix 2012

If the La Rupture (their crazy Sauvignon Blanc) has gone a bit punk, this is writhing on its back and air-guitaring to the Ramones with an oversized safety pin through its nose. This Marsanne is left on its skins for several weeks during and after ferment, giving it a warm gold/bronze hue. The nose is heady, gloriously oxidative with dried peaches, apricots, cloves and cinnamon. Smells a bit like proper bread pudding. The palate is extraordinary – there’s real grip there and beautiful texture – it’s all like proper, waxy honeycomb with the richness of sweetness but totally dry. I think this would beat a fair few Palo Cortado when paired with good Pata Negra. What an amazing and interesting wine. 14% Drink now - 2025

Saint-Veran 'Bois de Fee' Domaine Thibert et Fils 2015

Chantilly cream poured over white peaches poached in a faintly floral syrup. This is the sort of wine that makes you a bit emotional, transporting you to heady summer days. Fresh green apples and lemon sorbet on the palate - you won't be able to stop yourself grinning.

Elegantly expressive, full of lovely rich stone fruit and melon character with hints of dried fruits and spice, toasted hazelnuts and hints of butterscotch. There's also a firm line of flinty minerality, and that delicious combination of texture, body and fresh acidity that the whites around Corton do so well. Fine enough to grace even the most fastidious Burgundy bibber's table.

Syrah Laurence de Veyrac 2017

How many nice wines have you had at Pizza Express, ASK or the equivalent establishment in the last decade? Quite. As the wine is poured to check it I put on a brave face and say yes, thank you, that’s very nice in order not so as not to spoil the evening and what is sometimes a half decent pizza. But house wine, and for that matter pretty much every wine these places sell, is unacceptable for the money they charge us. This is what they should be serving. It is spot on. It’s an ideal wine to crack open anytime, but you can be proud to serve it to your fussy wine friends

Gamay 'Fleur de Printemps' Domaine de la Rochette 2017

This is a joyful gamay, unpretentious, juicy and easy drinking from Touraine, central Loire. A slight pepperiness and a perfume of violet delicately emerges from the glass. The Gamay grape, so famous in Beaujolais, provides in the Loire a cleaner and sharper style. The tannins here are soft and smooth, giving an extremely refreshing style - drink it slightly cooled to express more intensely its youthful fruit character. Perfect with friends, sharing some charcuterie and cheese.

Cotes du Rhone 'Les Clapas', Domaine Saint Amant 2016

Prettily floral – violets – with peppery soft fruit. Plenty of regional typicity here. Delicate and spicy with a little grainy tannin. A great value CDR. This is about delicacy and nuances rather than power, coming from a terroir much cooler than low lying vineyards. There is also no oak used on this wine. It is for drinking now. Drink with light summer food, barbeques, rabbit, chicken or lamb scented with herbs, sausages, pasta. This is beautifully made by Camille Nosworthy an architect who fell in love with making wine. It’s a 3.5 hectare vineyard of chalk and clay around the village of Suzette at 500 to 620m in the area of Beaumes de Venise in the spectacular Dentelles de Monmirail. These high vineyards and poor soil make the wine so different from those of the Rhone on the valley floor. Saint-Amant’s Les Clapas is not about weight; it’s about perfume, aromatics and vivacity.

Brouilly, C de BY, Domaine Pierre-Andre Dumas 2012

The nose is scented with a touch of cinnamon and spice - almost something even slightly Christmassy about it combined with red liquorice bootlaces. So characteristic of Brouilly, we have more fruit here than those classic Gamay floral aromas, and there's a firm core of cherries, red currants and some wood spice.

Mas Cristine Rouge Cotes du Roussillon 2016

Our flagship red is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan. The Syrah and Grenache come from near the sea, while the Carignan ripens later, a bit further to the north. When first bottled, the Grenache dominates the nose with purity of fruit that can astonish. With a year and a bit in bottle, the varieties have integrated. The Syrah gives blueberry, and a hint of black olive. The Grenache offers black cherry and flower petal. The Carignan, only about 15% of the blend, gives earthy, rain-on-hot-asphalt notes (petrichor) and brings a bright, crunchy, sinewy acidity on the palate. This is drinking so well right now, and is truly a wine for all seasons. Chill it now, and enjoy that juicy crunch along with the dusty tannins. It’ll open with decanting. Save a case for colder times. That richness and ripeness of the south of France will prove perfect with game dishes, the grandest of roasts or even a warming stew. It’s incredibly well integrated at the moment, though the tannins will soften if you fancy sticking it away for longer. At the moment, though, you get both berry and stone fruit, plus some savoury, leather-tar-bacon notes. There’s even a bit of squid ink in there. The terroir is so close to Collioure, and still heavily influenced by the schist soils, that you get a tight structure and mineral backbone you don’t often find from wines in the south.

Domaine Grand Ormeau, Lalande de Pomerol 2014

Lovely ripe plum and blackcurrant with cocoa dust, tobacco leaf, a touch of sandlewood. Very appealing. The palate is a fantastic contrast of those bright plum and currant fruits wrapped in dark secondaries – cigar box, dark chocolate and a bit of pipe tobacco. A producer just over the border from Pomerol, making wine, now with the help of the former winemaker of Petrus, Yannick Reyrel. Smooth for Bordeaux. Mull over it in a decanter and you can keep it for another 4 or 5 years, and get the tertiary flavours of mature Bordeaux.

Rully Chaponniere, Domaine Ninot 2014

Burgundy vignerons and tonneliers since the 14th century, the Ninot family have done more than most to establish the quality wine credentials of a region that has been described as the 'undernourished country cousin' of the Côte d'Or. Sister and brother team Erell and Flavien have run the show since 2005, Erell making the wine while her brother maintains the vineyards. This is a hugely respected winemaking family and one central to the establishment of the Rully appellation as we now know it. Their grandfather, René, in particular, is regarded as a trailblazer in the region. The current generation remain totally committed to the finest expression of their Chalonnaise terroir, led by the formidable talent of winemaker Erell, who won the Trophée de Jeune Talent, Burgundy's best young winemaker award, just three years after she and her brother took over the estate from their father, Pierre-Marie. Latterly, France's top wine publication, La Revue du Vin de France, presented her with the Coup du Coeur - one of its most coveted winemaking awards.

Chorey-Les-Beaune is a pretty modest appellation, underrated in the firmament of Burgundy’s vineyards, but this is precisely the kind of wine that can score big in great years. In Chorey-Les-Beaune ‘Les Bons Ores’ Maratray-Dubreuil we have a wine made by a brilliant winemaker that punches above its weight every year. This is one the best-value wines in Burgundy. Add to that the conditions of a great vintage and you really have a treat for the price. You don’t often see me recommend red Burgundy but Maratray-Dubreuil has nailed it.

For anyone wishing to know what a textbook definition of a Marsannay Pinot Noir is like, look nay further. Marsannay is the northern most wine village in the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. Formerly known only for its rosé wine, Marsannay is increasingly winning attention from Burgundy lovers in search of good quality with some semblance of everyday value.
