We have gone with classics for our red case as well; Burgundy; Bordeaux; Southern France; Tuscany; Piedmont and Rioja – classic and much-loved wine regions that most red wine drinkers will know and enjoy. Two bottles of each of the six wines is a very classy way to fill up a sadly depleted wine rack, and with most of the wines from tiny artisan producers, it should impress your friends!
Bourgogne Pinot Noir Remoriquet 2018
Gilles Remoriquet is a bit of a star in Nuits-Saint-Georges, and this wine; his Bourgogne Rouge, offers much of the character of his far more expensive wines. A very stylish Burgundian Pinot Noir!
Chateau La Croix de Grezard Lussac St Emilion 2015
Chateau La Croix de Grezard is a small property about 10 miles north of Saint-Emilion, making great value Bordeaux year in year out, but the 2015 is very special – certainly the finest wine since 2010.
Chianti Classico Montemaggio 2013
We love Montemaggio’s traditional Chiantis. From a high-altitude estate in Radda-in-Chianti, this blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot is bursting with black cherry, tobacco and balsamic flavours.
Langhe Nebbiolo Cabutto 2017
Nebbiolo is the grape of Barolo, and this wine comes from young Barolo vineyards. It’s lighter and fresher than Barolo but has all of the fabulous tar and rose aromas of its big and expensive brother.
Rioja Crianza Finca San Martin 2016
La Rioja Alta is one of the great names in Rioja, and this wine comes from their Rioja Alavesa estate. Fruitier and more modern than La Rioja Alta’s traditional wines, it’s a perfect barbeque red.
Domaine Caizergues Les Armoriers Red 2015
The least well-known of the wines, but it shouldn’t be. The Terrasses du Larzac is a high-class region north of Montpellier and this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre is a superb wine.
