FC38701 FC38701 Picpoul de Pinet, Domaine Félines Jourdan 2019

"Purchased as part of an experimental "fun" case, we found this to be very enjoyable. Lovely "lychee" bouquet, rounded fruit without being complex and certainly not acidic. We enjoyed it very much with baked salmon and will certainly consider ordering again."

AL13981 AL13981 Terroir des Châteaux Forts, Domaine Rolly-Gassmann 2016

"Took the WS advice and paired this up with a spicy stir fry, and it did a great job. Elderflower and honeysuckle scent. More floral in the flavour too, maybe a touch of rose creeping in. Some nice peach and pear coming through too. A bit much on its own, but comes good with the right food pairing."

"For it's price was a cracking wine. Can age well. But at it's current price, when I can buy the producers own label from a local merchant. It's an easy pass noe. "

"My first bottle of this well reviewed and promoted wine - Enjoyed the same! In summary, very upfront wine, with strong aftertaste! "

FC36901 FC36901 Terre de Mes Ancêtres, Cité de Carcassonne 2018

"Cheating a bit as this review refers to the 2017 vintage which I bought as a bin end for £5.95. At that price it compared very favourably with the Society's other inexpensive offerings. Fruity, plummy, not subtle but went well with venison and keeps well overnight. If the 2018 is similar (as other reviews suggest) it's still fair value at the higher price."

SP15131 SP15131 Aranleón Sólo Bobal, Utiel Requena 2017

"Tried this wine for the first time last night. We experienced a slight odour similar to oxidization. Not sure if this is normal or due to the wine being corked? Having mentioned the above, the wine was quite pleasurable to taste, however, a little spoilt by the slightly foist odour. "

LO15651 LO15651 Cheverny, Domaine du Salvard 2019

"I usually drink white french, alabrino or Eastern European. Samur is the standard summer quaff, so am thrilled I have found something on par. An unsual Chardonnay blend works well. Adds subtle weight with an overwhelming lemon flavour drank semi chilled, which dilutes the colder it is served. Drinkable alone in spring or summer sun, chilled is best, otherwise serve with a dleicate fish. Enjoy for £9! Defo a reorder be here "

FC37821 FC37821 Irouléguy, Domaine Brana Rouge 2016

"This is the good stuff. Full bodied with leathery tannins, it will improve with age. Lots of black fruit front palate, with lingering woody notes. This is a very fine wine that will bear years in a cellar. The cabernet franc seems to have been overwhelmed by the Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat, but produces a wine that is has the character of a decent claret rather than an earthy southern French inkpot. Would recommend."

Mr Keith Jordan ( 04-Apr-2020 )

IT27151 IT27151 The Society's Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2017

"Great value and terrific for drinking with food (pasta etc). Well balanced and fruity. We’ve had a few bottles over the past few weeks and together with the Society’s Rioja it remains our favourite early evening tipple"

Mr John H Summers ( 04-Apr-2020 )

BJ7981 BJ7981 Château d'Emeringes, Beaujolais-Villages Vieilles Vignes 2018

"As a great fan of the savoury, less ripe and lighter style of Loire Cabernet Francs, I was really impressed by this wine. I have found some Beaujolais too fruity, mono-dimensional and sweet but this one hits the spot with a lovely combination of pure red fruits, good acidity and a savoury raspiness of light tannins that make the wine a pleasurable drinking experience. It wears its 13.5% alcohol level well and would make an excellent summer quaffer slightly chilled or a good accompaniment to patés, charcuterie and lighter BBQ dishes. It's not a blockbuster but at £8.50 I consider it a bargain. I think this was one of the Wine Champions of 2019 and justifiably so. For me it would be a 4 star on taste alone but with the price factored in, this is a 5 star for me."

Mr Richard Bailey ( 04-Apr-2020 )

GE13001 GE13001 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett, Kees Kieren 2018

"Rich sweetness with a fine line of lemon acidity. Very quaffable and very good value for money"

Mr Alan Guy ( 03-Apr-2020 )

£13.50
PW7851 PW7851 Adega de Colares Chão Rijo, Lisboa 2016

"Rather disappointing. I had been looking forward to this, as I very much like the Colares from the same source. Initially it's a reasonably likeable, if somewhat neutral, medium-bodied wine, but it finishes on a rather sour, unintegrated note of new oak. (Oak chippings, oak extract even?) Presumably this was done to enhance the wine's 'international' appeal, but I think it adulterates an otherwise decent bottle. "

Mr Peter J Brennan ( 03-Apr-2020 )

£10.95
AL14621 AL14621 Moselle ‘Les Gryphées', Château de Vaux 2018

"I agree with the previous review - very underwhelming for the price. Certainly creamy, but very little fruit or nose, and I found the acidity also lacking, and not one to drink with food."

Mr Alexander Robinson ( 03-Apr-2020 )

£11.50
PW7141 PW7141 Vadio Branco, Bairrada 2017

"Pale yellow. Slightly cheesy nose, herby. Strong lemon citrus attack, light peach tone. Good finish, light almond, slightly yeasty-biscuity. Felt well made. Great with roast chicken."

Mr Chris Groom ( 03-Apr-2020 )

£12.95
LE1061 LE1061 Château Ksara Réserve du Couvent 2017

"I found this wine harsh and astringent as if fermented on the stems, not to my taste at all, and certainly not what I would pay £12 for."

Mr Gary Ashdown ( 03-Apr-2020 )

£10.95
BW6461 BW6461 Château Bel Air Perponcher Réserve, Bordeaux Blanc 2018

"We have purchased these wine for many years. The reason is that it has taste and is great with white fish, e.g. plaice plus it is a respectable price. There are other good wines of course but they do tend to be more expensive. So in summary a wine that is good with any white fish, has real taste and is a reasonable price"

RH54761 RH54761 Château Sainte Estève, Rondoletto, IGP Méditerranée 2018

"I echo the views of the previous reviewers. Soft, round and approachable, and would be good, undemanding and quite classy at a reception. As a food wine, it lacked the depth to give real satisfaction."

AU21901 AU21901 Victory Hotel Australian Chardonnay-Semillon 2018

"Currently in self isolation - just conjured up a home made smoked salmon pate! Cracked open a bottle of this wine - it was a marriage made in heaven. Great rounded fresh Chardonnay underpinned with a ‘dollop’ of Semillon. Great Value for money! I even shared a glass with my wife at a ‘safe distance’ of course. We hope the Wine Society opens for business soon. Enjoy the Wine - Highly Recommended.!!"

RH54161 RH54161 Vacqueyras Blanc Les Clefs d'Or, Clos des Cazaux 2018

"Found this quite delicious - agree with previous reviewer not to serve too cold. Dry, little evidence of oak, but brimming with flavour. Although I am still wary of white wines of 13.5% or over as I feel that level of alcohol tends to cloak the taste, making it blowsy, perhaps the grape varieties here can take 13.5%. Loved it. Will order again"

BG361 BG361 Bononia Estate Gamza 2018

"I really wanted to enjoy this wine but just couldn’t. Very very different and just confused my palate. However it is different and I would recommend you get a bottle to try. It didn’t work for me but for those who want variety please give it a go"

Mr Paul Anderson ( 02-Apr-2020 )

£8.50
BJ7951 BJ7951 Domaine des Joséphins, Beaujolais 2018

"Very drinkable but really does lack any real character . However it is fairly cheap so I have marked it up a bit as it is still good value. However for a few pennies more go for Château de Lacarelle, Beaujolais-Villages 2018 which is just immense. Unfortunately out of stock at moment"

GE13441 GE13441 The Society's Exhibition Rheingau Riesling 2018

"Lemon citrus and pith, stone fruit and minerals on the nose. Broad earthy citrus flavours and distinct salinity on tasting. A seam of brisk acidity that runs all the way though the palate provides a balanced firmness and structure. IMO an archetypal example of Hock that more than fulfils the Exhibition range brief."

Mr Mark Barton ( 02-Apr-2020 )

CB5611 CB5611 Château Tour La Vérité, Bordeaux 2016

"Has many of the classic claret signatures, lovely structure and some delicate perfume to boot. And all at under £7, it doesn't get much better than this. A cracker for the price. I hope TWS keeps on stocking with future vintages. "

IT29171 IT29171 Puglia Bianco, A Mano 2019

"This is a wonderful wine, full and rich but somehow also fresh, utterly delicious. Exceptional value too . It came, out of the blue, as it were, in the Champions Whites Case - and no wonder it was there. I don't know whether Seb Payne or Sarah Knowles gets the credit - but well done someone!"

AL14671 AL14671 Gewurztraminer, Cave de Turckheim 2018

"The most obvious adjective here is luscious. Lychee, rose and spice, honeyed without being the least bit cloying - and went equally well with a spicy Sichuanese stir-fry (first evening) and cheese (second evening). I regret not ordering a second bottle!"

CB5611 CB5611 Château Tour La Vérité, Bordeaux 2016

"A very nice claret for the price - not too lightweight, plenty of fruit flavours open up once decanted, and a good balance of tannins. It has some sediment in the bottle, so be careful when decanting. Overall a very wise purchase indeed."

"This wine was eminently drinkable. On the day of opening it was very round with a cherry taste and left a good aftertaste. On day 2, it was fuller, peppery, and quite excellent. It’s easy to drink and, even though I don’t keep pizzas at home, I’m sure it would have gone down a treat with a pizza."

"Bought the 2018 based on members’ reviews of earlier vintages. Genuinely disappointed. On day of opening it promised dark red fruit but was primarily tannic and spicy. Day 2 was a let-down. The fruit didn’t come through. It was pleasant to drink. I have a second bottle and will leave it for at least a year to see if it improves with age."

Mr James Ashworth ( 01-Apr-2020 )

IT19131 IT19131 Barolo Roggeri, Ciabot Berton 2010

"An abundance of fresh, ripe fruit on the nose. Damsons, blackberries and cherries. Really expressive. To taste, incredibly smooth and well integrated with nice weight to it. Less fruit and more savoury notes than the nose would suggest but no less pleasant for it. The only aspect stopping from getting 5 stars was the finish was short lived. In sum, a very enjoyable bottle but didn’t quite have the ‘wow’ factor. Would still buy again and excited about how good the 2016 vintage will be if 2010 was considered average. "

Mr James Ashworth ( 01-Apr-2020 )
