Wine: Something for the weekend?


Night in

2007 Lacroix, Bordeaux Supérieur

Château Teyssier's Jonathan Maltus is responsible for this sweetly cherryish claret with its underpinning of vanilla and chocolatey oak. Bargain. £7.99, buy 2 = £5.99, Majestic

Dinner party

2012 Sélection des Cognettes, Muscadet de Sèvre et Maine sur Lie

This seafood-friendly bone dry Atlantic white bursts on to the tongue with an energetic spritz and follows through like any textbook muscadet sur lie should. £9.95, Roberson

Splash out

2010 Brancott Estate Chosen Rows Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough

Pricey, but this pure expression of sauvignon blanc is exotically intense in its nettley fragrance and its rich gooseberry fruit quality. £35-41, Lay & Wheeler, Harvey Nichols
