Wine: Something for the weekend

Under £6

2010 Fiano Sannio DOC       

Fiano is one of the new-wave Neapolitan grapes restoring the good name of Italian white wines – in this instance for its crisp appley and pear fruitiness and its clean, dry aftertaste. £5.99, down from £7.99, until 4 September, Marks & Spencer

Under £10

2009 Baron de Ley Graciano

This finely-balanced, modern Rioja is made from pure graciano, which brings rich, dark cherry and mulberry fruit characters, whose smoothness of texture is tempered by a trenchant blade of acidity. £8.99, Tesco

Splash out

Pol Roger Réserve NV Brut Champagne

From one of the greats, this classic fizz, with its stylish toasty aromas and intense baked apple mousse that explode on the tongue, is too good to miss at this price. £28, down from £33, until Monday week, Majestic
