Armagnac is a more controlled, more complex version of Cognac, and luckily Guilhon D'aze are deeply old fashioned - not so much in their drink, but in their pricing. A steal

Tarlant Cuvee Louis
A cult name among Grower Champagnes, this is an oxidative style, with the backbone provided by the 2000 vintage, supported by 1997, 1998 and 1999. Aged with but still light and refreshing, with almonds, walnuts, salinity and brioche
No surprises here, delicate fizz, pear and peach with good balance
Coutier Brut Magnum
Coutier are one of our favourite Grower Champagnes - when we fancy a bottle of bubbles we tend to opt for their NV as its just so drinkable and delicious. Based in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay in the Montagne de Reims, Coutier were the first producer to grow Chardonnay in the village. Notes of brioche and biscuit mingle on the palate with crisp fruits and soft bubbles. Always a winner! 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay.

The first single block chianti to be made, this is a pure and brilliant expression of Sangiovese. Full and structured, with great length- fantastic with red meat.
Beaujolais yes, but not Beaujolais Noveau! One of the top up and coming growers in the region this is a really refreshing, light red with lots of red fruit and restrained alcohol and tannin.
