Sunday lunch

William Fevre Domaine Chablis 2012

Benchmark Chablis from a family firm more than 250 years old. Bone dry, some light, fresh fruit notes, a touch of citrus and underpinned by a precise minerality, this is the wine to accompany oysters and roast turbot for a summer lunch. £15.49, noblegreenwines.co.uk; £15.99, robertsandspeight.co.uk

Midweek meals

Reserve du Boulas Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2013

Made with the typical blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah near Avignon, this is an uncomplicated, moreish rosé, packed with invigorating red-berry flavours and very dry. Serve very cold with almost any Mediterranean food. £7.99, Marks and Spencer

Bargain basement

Stobi Vranec Classic 2011

A gem from Macedonia, one of the emerging Eastern European producers and great value for a big wine. Made with local Vranec grapes, this is dense and dark, with tastes of bramble and plum and predictably 14.5 ABV. Great with red meat dishes. £8.99 (until 23 June, down from £9.99), winerack.co.uk
