The excitement stems from a) the magazine's main cover article and b) its lead panel review.
The lead panel review is of the Languedoc appellation of Corbieres, and (obviously) its reds. There are some wonderful wines here, full of life and flavour, well made and packing no little interest - at some amazing prices for the money involved.
The lead article is an expert review of Global Bordeaux blends; to be clear, that's wines from everywhere except Bordeaux made with the classic Bordeaux red grape varieties (principally Merlot and the two Cabernets). Here, some glorious New World and Old World specimens emerge. Although this this is a pricey category in the main (to find quality) - £40+ - we're proud to be offering the 95 and 94-pointers that come in more inexpensively - the best two at £21 and ~£13. Again, these provide unmissable value. Don't miss them; quantities available are not extensive. Again, all the details of the review and top wines can be found in on a separate page here(also click banner below).
(There's also a panel review of 2006 Barolo, we might add. It's doubtless amazing stuff, but you're only likely to be an owner of those wines if you're already an owner of those wines. And you're probably feeling quite smug/contented if so; well done to you. Once again, the stockists listed in the article invariably no longer have/hold the '06 vintage, just the most recent ones of some considerable years later).
Honestly, that's quite enough to fill anyone's e-basket (I). However, beyond these, there are plenty of featured wines (and we're only including here those that do particularly well). NB: Whilst most are, a couple are not the featured vintage - do check the review on the product against the vintage we offer where this is crucial to you!
