The Crowd Pleaser
Put this easy-to-get-along-with chap in the middle of any room and watch as the smiles spread. Chante-Clair will do much the same thing! This velvet-smooth, spicy blackberry-laden southern French red is just so easy to drink.
Nothing beats a cool glass of Le Citronnier in the garden. Especially for those who spend most of their time out there anyway! Every sip delivers a fruit salad of flavour with jump-from-the-glass gooseberry aromas.
These mysterious types can often surprise with their hidden talents. Much like Nero Di Troia, southern Italy’s hero red grape. Largely unknown in the UK, but makes wines of such incredible black fruit richness.
We all know someone who appreciates the finer things in life. So for them, we’ve picked out an elegant white Burgundy from an official “Winemaker of the Year”. Creamy, ripe peach with mineral freshness.
The party doesn’t start until these types arrive! So of course, our match had to be Champagne. And a stunning one at that. Double Gold medal-winning Didier Chopin Brut Rosé is all vivacious strawberry and citrus fruit with toasty richness.
AKA the sun-lovers. For them, the hotter it is outside the better. They’ll love this big Californian Zinfandel, which has soaked up 250 days of uninterrupted sunshine to deliver huge flavours of baked red fruits and peppery spice.
Those who must been seen sporting the latest trends. So we’ve picked a crisp New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc for their glass – the most in-demand white of the moment. What's more, The Hour-Teller is one of our newest rising stars.
They may usually go unnoticed, but that doesn’t mean they’ve got nothing worth saying. Much like Willem de Silent. A warming Rhône red from an under-the-radar region. One generously dark fruited sip will make you sit up and take notice.
Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
