    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/117421.Penedes is a region in north-east Spain between Barcelona and the coast that got DO status in 1960 although there has been viticulture here since at least the Romans. The region is well known for sparkling Cava wines but these now have their own DO.Bodegas Pinord is a large wine producer in this area.My bottle is made from cabernet sauvignon,one of the 'international' varieties rather than native Spanish grapes.The grapes were grown in the company's own vineyard of Muntanyans and the wine spent two years in oak barrels followed by a further three years of bottle aging before release.I started my bottle last night with my supper of pork steak.It is a fairly full bodied wine.There was plenty of a blackberry and bramble style fruit and a hint of spice and vanilla on the finish. The tannins were smooth and not intrusive and gave good structure.In short,this was a lovely wine that went well with the pork steaks

    This bottle was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/114698. On the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy there is a slope known as Mont Rachet [Bare Mountain] between the villages of Puligny and Chassange [both of which have appended Montrachet to their names] which is famous for white wines although there are a few reds.The commune of Puligny-Montrachet got appellation status for white wines only in 1939.There are four Grand Cru vineyards and 17 Premier Cru the largest of which at 17 hectares is 'Les Folatieres' Lucien le Moine is a very small scale negociant house [one man and his wife] making small quantities of wine[ only 2,500 cases a year ] from this and other Burgundy vineyards and appellations. I started my bottle last night with my supper of fish cakes and I was impressed. There is plenty of a peach,apricot and melon style fruit with overtones of citrus and also hints of vanilla but there is also minerality as well.This is a subtle wine I thought this a just exquisite expresion of what a good chardonnay should be like.

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/116891.Listrac-Medoc is an appellation created in 1957,although there has been viticulture here since at least the 12th century,for red wines from the commune of that name on the Medoc peninsular north of the City of Bordeaux.. The commune is set back a little inland of the Gironde estuary on higher ground [only 40 metres above sea level ] than the other Medoc appellationss.Chateau Ducluzeau is a small family owned property in this area. My bottle consists of 90% merlot and 10% cabernet sauvignon,an unusual blend for the left bank,and was aged in oak barrels.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pork.At first I thought it might be corked because the cork crumbled as I attempted to remove it and some of it fell back into the wine and there was an initial sour and bitter taste.However,20 minutes later things had changed.There was lots of a blackcurrant,blackberry and plum style fruit with soft and mellow tannins and a hint of vanilla.In short,this is not a bad wine especially considering its age and it was a good accompaniment to the pork.

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/114149.Mercurey is an appellation created in 1936[although there has been viticulture here for centuries] for red and white wines [90% are red] from the two communes of Mercurey and Saint Martin sous Montaigue on the Cotes Chalonaise in Burgundy.There are 32 premier cru vineyards but no Grand Cru.My bottle was made by the Burgundy house of Remoissenet and is a village level wine.I started it last night with my steak supper.It is fairly full bodied for a Burgundy and there is plenty of a cherry and redcurrant style fruit. The tannins are soft but there was ample structure. In short this was a lovely bottle of wine that was a perfect match for the steak.

    I bought this bottle of wine for only £1 [although I did also have to pay a delivery charge] from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/113912 Fronsac is an appellation created in 1936 for red and rose wines from seven communes around the village of that name west of the town of Libourne and north of the Dordogne river.Canon-Fronsac is a sub-appellation created in 1964 for two of those communes. Fronsac and Saint-Michel de Fronsac.Chateau Junayme is a small family owned concern in this area My bottle consists of 80% merlot and the rest of the two cabernets and was aged in oak barrels It had clearly been well-cellared because it was in perfect condition with the level well into the neck..I started my bottle last night with my supper of lamb chops.There is a blackcurrant and blackberry style fruit with some soft tannins that just about gave sufficient structure. In short,this is not a bad example of a right bank claret from a 'petit chateau' in one of the less fashionable appellations although I wonder what this would have tasted like in its younger days.

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from a shop in London's Kensington [www.nicolas.co.uk] It is a white Cotes du Rhone from the Laudun-Chusclan co-operative group According to the back label it is dominated by grenache blanc with some clairette,roussanne and viognier although it does not give the proportions..I started it today with my fish supper. It is a dry wine but not bone-dry It is has some citrus acidity and some sour apple style fruit. It went well with the fish although I thought it an OK wine rather than an outstanding wine.However it did get a silver medal at the 2016 Macon wine competition.

    I bought this bottle of wine for £15 from a merchant in Sussex who had got it from a house clearance.It was in perfect and unmarked condition for a 20 year old bottle with the level high in the neck so it had clearly been well cellared.Fronsac is an AOC created in 1936 for red and rose wines from seven communes around the village of that name west of the town of Libourne and north of the Dordogne river.Canon-Fronsac is a sub-appellation within Fronsac created in 1964.Chateau Moulin Haut Villars is the second wine of Chateau Villars,a well established family concern.It is a typical right bank claret blend of 70% merlot and the rest the two cabernets. I started the bottle at the weekend with my roast lamb and I did enjoy it.There was plenty of a blackcurrant and plum style fruit there and the tannins were soft but well structured. I was impressed. I thought it an absolutely superb claret and was surprised to discover it was a second wine made from the younger vines

I started it last night with my supper of roast turkey breast. It is full of a blackcurrant,blackberry and plum style fruit with a little cigar box and some soft tannins that still give good structure.In short,this is an exquisite example of what a good right bank claret should be like and from a 'petit chateau'in one of the less fashionable appellations

    I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/110957 for £6.50. The Coteaux du Tricastin was an appellation for red,white and rose wines,although 95% of production are reds,from 21 communes to the south of the town of Montelimar on the east bank of the Rhone river.The appellation was granted in 1973 although viticulture in the area goes back to at least the Romans.. In 2010 the name of the appellation was changed to Grignan les Adhemar as the growers decided that they did not want the name of their wine to be associated with that of the local Tricastin Nuclear power station.I have not been able to discover much about Domaine Raspail in Tricastin although the label does say that it is owned by Michel Bernard,nor much detail about my wine. However I started it last night with my supper of chicken stew.There is plenty of a blackberry and bramble style fruit and the tannins were smooth and soft almost to the point of being bland.Perhaps it was a little past its ideal drinking window.However it was a good accompaniment to the stew.
