Wine: Something for the weekend?


Night in

2011 Tesco Simply Garnacha

Pure garnacha from Bodegas Borsão in Campo de Borja, this is a juicy party quaffer with aromas of plum and prune and a gluggable ripe plummy fruit quality with a spicy edge to it. £4.49, Tesco

Dinner party

2011 Carmagnole Prestige Caramany

Behind the pepper and liquorice fragrance lurks a blend of old vine carignan, syrah and grenache, whose fruit concentration is underpinned by garrigue herb and a rustic flourish. £9.99, M&S

Splash out

2009 Chanson Meursault

From the Sainsbury's Classic Selection, this is a full-flavoured, white Burgundy from the Côte de Beaune in which peachy chardonnay fruit mingles with subtle oak and finishes on a mineral dry high. £25.99, Sainsbury's
