For the Aperitif




Aureus Cremant de Loire, 2002, £8.99.

Apples and almonds, slightly biscuity, creamy, this all comes from the 5 years ageing in bottle before release! There is also a zesty freshness. International Wine Challenge best of class."

To Buy








Lallier Champagne, Grand Cru, £24.99.

This uplifting Grand Cru champagne spends over 4 years maturing to reach this perfectly balanced, exquisite champagne that puts many better known producers to shame. Jancis Robinson just named it in her top 3 champagnes out of 88 top names she recently tasted blind.

To Buy


With Roast Lamb.

Chateau Rosseau De Sipian, Medoc 2000, £9.99, (on main buying page in Softisticated category).

"A classic example of really good Bordeaux, this comes from the exalted 2000 vintage that got everyone's knickers in a twist a few years ago and it's still tasting fantastic right about now. Soft, yet a bit broody, it's got a 'real red wine' feel about it that we love."

To Buy

Sidereal, Cachapoal, Chile, £12.99.


Made by a French family from Bordeaux who own Château Dassault in St Emillion (Grand Cru)- they set out to make the first Grand Cru Classe Bordeaux wine in Chile. It is very St Emillion in style and one of my personal favourites!

To Buy



Both of these wines should speak for themselves. In fact any of the Fine Wine would be brilliant with Lamb, they are all 1st-5th growth wines.

Chateau Monbusquet, St Emillion 1998, £50, fine wine section. To Buy

Chateau Pavillion Rouge, Margaux 1995, £55, fine wine section. To Buy


For all the Chocolate

There is nothing French on the site that I think would be great with chocolate, so instead I will recommend these two things. I appreciate there is probably a law against mentioning Australian wine on a French website but it really can be very good.


With dark chocolate

Two Hands, Shiraz, Barossa, Australia, £13.99


It is seriously dark, brooding and intence. The 'two hands' are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz who have the clear objective of making the best possible shiraz within Australia. They succeeded with this one! PS this is an "en primeur" style offer, i.e. it should be considerably more, but we bought it early.

To Buy

For Milk Chocolate

Devils Corner Pinot Noir Tasmania, Australia. £9.99.

This young devil is a cheeky, light hearted yet complex wine with rich undertones. Cherry red in colour with purple tinges it delivers ripe spicy plum aromas on the rip tide with the hidden undercurrent of ripe cherries blended with a hint of savoury flavour.


To Buy



With Cheese

Turckheim, Grand Cru, Gewurztraminer, 2007. £15.99

The pinnacle of aromatics. It has a powerfully fragrant nose of rose petal, lychee and apricot with a hint of sweet spice. Rich pineapple flavours with spicy fruit and nice acidity
