1 x Pouilly-Fume Vitae Domaine du Bouchot 2018

Lifted, almost pungent notes of white flowers, chamomile, buttery flowers, banana, some pear drop. Fleshy fruit, a fine fringe of palate coating sweetness, with a core of minerality. Fresh, springlike, floral character with some filling.

1 x Domaine Grand Ormeau, Lalande de Pomerol 2016

When it comes to Bordeaux finding quality at a decent price has been getting ever harder to attain. Like a lot of wine lovers, I’ve more or less turned my back. There are marvellous Bordeaux-style wines being made all over the world after all. Very occasionally though, there are glimmers of light in this money-benighted region, clarets that tickle you in all the appropriate places but that don't come with a bullying price tag. One such wine is Domaine du Grand Ormeau’s Lalande-de-Pomerol, whose vineyards are on excellent stony terroir, next-door to Pomerol (and indeed a short hop from the deified Petrus), Domaine Grand Ormeau is producing excellent wines without the silly price tags of their over-inflated neighbours.

1 x Bourgogne Grande Reserve Pinot Noir Domaine de Mauperthuis 2017

The Grande Reserve vineyard is located on the western side of Chablis, toward Auxerre. The chalky slopes are very similar to the famous Montee de Tonnerre. It is hedonistic with an xxtraordinary nose. Cherry. No filtration in this vintage so good body and chewiness. Good length. Pinot Noir from Burgundy of this quality at this price is so rare. It's joyful and full, and classy, with a lovely hint of oak. It comes from vineyards that were famous in the 19th century that were forgotten and have now been re-planted.

1 x Domaine Michel & Stéphane Ogier Syrah d'Ogier 2017

This is a wonderful buy, and a brilliant smart-casual wine. Stephane Ogier is unquestionably one of the stars of Cote Rotie. His are the most sought after of wines. The fruit all once use go to Guigal and Chapoutier. He has mastered the art of making silky Syrah with finesse yet flavour intensity.
