Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Pozzo' Renato Corino 2016

In this Barbera there is beauty and generosity. It lights up your palate in the way that Renato’s smile lights up a room. It's known by his importers around the world as the best value wine from his cellar and it's always the first to disappear. It can impress just as well as any Barolo.

A A Badenhorst Family Red 2015

The 2015 represents a milestone for this wine - the 10th vintage Adi has made - and probably the best so far. You can overlook the Family Red in its youth but Adi's Family Red ages really well. It takes time to open up. So decant it and be patient.

A A Badenhorst Family Red 2016

'The 2016 Family Red Blend is a blend of 71% Shiraz, 13% Grenache, 11% Cinsault and 5% Tinta Barocca. It has a very pure bouquet, quite floral and intense, with dark cherries, black plum, warm gravel and light truffle scents, the 80% whole bunch completely disguised. The palate is medium-bodied with quite grippy tannin. There is good backbone here, quite dense but well defined with a chalky, slight austere finish, partly because Adi now undertakes more aging in concrete. Give this a couple of years in bottle.'

Savage Red Blend 2016

81% Syrah, 11% Grenache, 8% Cinsault, carefully selected "with love" from vineyards at altitude and with close to the coast. A 94-pointer for both Greg Sherwood MW and Christian Eedes. Sherwood describes it as “the most classically proportioned of all the Savage reds”, with a “beautifully complex nose of perfumed dried roses, black berry fruits, grilled herbs, cured meats, garrigue, fynbos and dusty granitic minerality”. Pretty much on the money, we think. The palate is full with fine tannin, soft spices and juicy cranberry and strawberry along with hints of dark berry fruits. For a slightly alternative Christmas meal, you might try pairing this with slow-cooked beef brisket with star anise and chilli. Yummm – with three ems.

St Joseph 'Petit Pere' Aymeric Paillard 2015

The vineyards are near Tournon, opposite Hermitage. Aymeric Paillard worked at Delas, where he converted their Hermitage vineyard to organic, and did some work for Stephane Ogier, prior to finding a 4 hectare vineyard he farms organically. Concentrated, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. There is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. Beautiful, fine, old school style.

Barolo Renato Corino, La Morra 2015

This is glorious wine. The aromas are thrilling and uplifting with notes of fine cedar, pencil-lead, polished mahogany,chestnut and fine spice intermingling with the perfectly balanced fruit. The palate has finesse and elegance anddrinks sort of like a cross between a fine Margaux and Burgundy. Do not expect big wine, but do expect a great mouthful.It's the best straight Barolo that Renato Corino has made.

A A Badenhorst Ramnasgras Cinsault 2016

Light in alcohol, full in flavour. This wine packs a punch. Nutmeg and sweet spice intermingled with bright vibrant red current, cranberry and strawberry. With such a delicate structure, this wine is perfect for red wine drinkers in the summer time. You could even serve it lightly chilled. Drink now-2021. This is the third vintage of Ramnasgras, only made in tiny quantities from the Swartland valley in South Africa.

Chateauneuf du Pape L'Or de Line 2015

Can’t have Christmas without CNDP. Just can’t be. No sir. This year we’ve pulled a stonker from our Santa’s sack of goodies. From the generous, ripe and ready 2015 vintage, this organic Chateauneuf is certainly worthy of a place on your Christmas dinner table. Perhaps winemaker Gerard Jacumin’s secret ingredient is the Pink Clairette, a rare mutation of Clairette which adds a flavour of roses to the Grenache/Syrah-dominant blend, giving elegance to the palate and fragrance to the nose. A full-bodied Rhone red but with the finest of tannins and a rather impressive degree of elegance given the relatively hot, dry vintage.

A A Badenhorst Sk'windjiesvlei Tinta Barocca 2017

'The 2017 Sk’Windjiesvlei Tinta Barocca comes from a seven-hectare unpronounceable vineyard whose name means “gusty wind,” planted in 1962, when this Portuguese variety was becoming increasingly popular in the Capelands. It has a very pure blackberry and briar bouquet with hints of pressed iris and later, just a hint of canned prune. The palate is medium-bodied with black plum, blackberry and light white pepper notes, intriguingly almost Barolo-like in tannic structure, with gentle grip on the finish. Superb.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 92/100

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2014 (available in wood when 6 bottles)

This is becoming not just a top Tuscan wine but an Italian first growth, but still really is a wine for those in the know. A Bordeaux blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The pedigree is there in the vineyard. From the next hillside over, you can see Sassicaia’s legendary first vineyard, and Ornellaia, where they make Massetto. Tenuta Sette Cieli also sits above the famous vineyard Ca’Marcanda of Angelo Gaja!. But the best thing is the price remains sane as it’s not actually in the Bolgheri appellation, as no one thought when they drew the Bolgheri boundary that someone would be crazy enough plant above the woods, that are above Gaja’s vineyard. But they have!

Saurwein Nom Pinot Noir 2017

Goose. Need we say more? Oh all right then. Pinot Noir and goose. The Ur gastronomic combo of the festive season, the quintessence of Christmas. Jessica Saurwein’s Nom Pinot grows more assured with every new vintage. Cotes de Nuits in style, from the mighty Kaaimansgaat vineyard in Elandskloof, this is from the fiendishly dry 2017 vintage, which has given this wonderfully complex pinot intense aromatics, hints of orange rind, concentrated red berry and plum fruit, and a lick of wood spice. Gorgeous on its own, nigh-on transcendent with a crispy-skinned goose and cranberry sauce.

St Joseph 'Petit Pere', La Vigne des Peres, Aymeric Paillard 2015 Magnum 150cl

Concentrated, but not overly so, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. The aromas are quite closed, but there is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. The palate is firm but supple.

Vignolo Vinding Montecarrubo 2016

Italy's finest expression of Syrah. This is gorgeous, classy, old-school in some ways - so that if you like Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundy, you would enjoy this, yet it expresses the joy of Sicily. The terroir is in Melilli, an extinct volcano - south of Etna - with limestone, marine fossils. Made by wine legend Peter Vinding-Diers.

Yabby Lake Single Block Release, Block 1 Pinot Noir 2015

James Suckling - Published on 11 Jan 2017 A lighter rendering, but one that still has inherent power and assetiveness. The lighter red cherries and strawberries are wrapped in fragrant red florals on the nose. The palate has a lithe and juicy feel to it with plenty of life and gently crunchy tannins that remain measured and elegant. Drink now. Rating: 96

Yabby Lake, Block 6 Pinot Noir 2015

James Suckling - Published on 11 Jan 2017 This has a sense of brooding depth about it and is the most powerful and imposing of the three 2015 single-block releases from Yabby Lake. It has darker cherry and blueberry aromas and some cassis, too. The palate's energetic and really surges in with plenty of fleshy red- and purple-cherry fruits. The tannins wrap and compress before the finish expands upwards. Give this time; best from 2019. Raing: 96

Brunello di Montalcino Cupano 2014

Joint top of the 2014 Brunello tasting - Cupano Brunellow 2014 - review by Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Fragrant and alluring sweet-cherry nose with soft creamy top notes. Creamy soft fruit and chewy tannins. Plenty of oak, but perfectly integrated. Great length and already approachable.

Scipio Tenuta Sette Cieli 2013

This is a micro-cuvée only made in the best years – just 300 cases – to see what they can do with 100% Cabernet Franc. It’s pretty damned lovely – like Indaco, it needs more time – and you can tell by it being open for 24/48 hours that it’s got excellent potential, and it will just get better and better. It’s a bit more ‘right-bank’ St-Emilion style perhaps than the ‘left-bank’ Médoc. Like Indaco, it’s also another very special wine.

Barbaresco Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo is an eternal wine that will need 10-15 years in bottle to truly come around. Sorì San Lorenzo is often a big, virile wine. There is plenty of heft to the 2016, but at the same time, I also find an element of refinement and nuance that Sorì San Lorenzo has rarely, if ever, shown. Black cherry, cloves, menthol, licorice, gravel and incense are some of the many aromas and flavor that meld together in this dramatic and dramatically beautiful Barbaresco from the Gaja family. The Sorì San Lorenzo just explodes on the finish, with an array of aromas, flavors and textures that will leave readers weak at the knees. The 2016 is an outrageously beautiful, vivid wine of real gravitas and power.' 98+ points, Antonio Galloni

Barbaresco Gaja Sorì Tìldìn 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is a fabulous, incredibly complete wine that soars out of the glass with explosive structure and vertical lift. The tannins are very much present, but also matched beautifully by the wine's aromatic intensity and overall drive. Dark macerated cherry, spice, leather, licorice, plum and mocha add darker shades of nuance. In 2016, Sorì Tildìn is a bit more brooding and bigger than it often is, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced. It is quite simply a majestic wine of real grandeur and total class, but it is not obvious. Sorì Tildìn will appeal most to readers who understand what the truest essence of Nebbiolo is all about. In a word: magnificent!' 100 points, Antonio Galloni

Barbaresco Gaja Costa Russi 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Costa Russi is ripe, creamy and enveloping, as it so often is, and yet also preserves the super classic sense of structure that runs through all these wines. In 2016, Costa Russi has an extra touch of mid-palate sweetness that gives the wine its sense of immediacy. Succulent red cherry, rosewater, kirsch, mint and dried flowers meld together in the glass. Soft and sensual, with tons of allure, Costa Russi is another winner from Gaja. Time in the glass brings out the wine's density and tannins, both of which it has in spades.' 98 points, Antonio Galloni
