Our January Sale launches today with discounts on hundreds of wines and spirits. If you’re looking for a place to start, we asked our Buyers for exactly what they are eyeing up, so you can shop like those in the know

2016 Rosso di Montalcino, Scopetone, Tuscany, Italy

“Baby Brunello (coming from 17-year-old vines) shows its pedigree with its precision and intensity. Notes of bramble fruit, raspberry and kirsch lead on to a structured palate, but it’s deliciously crunchy thanks to its lively acidity. More approachable than Brunello, this is a lot of fun on the table.” – Davy Żyw

2015 DeSante, Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California, USA

“DeSante is a small grower and their Cabernet comes from the prestigious Oakville area within the Napa Valley, home to some of the most highly regarded and sought-after wines in California. I love this Cabernet: although it displays the typical generosity and power of a Napa Cabernet, there is a purity and elegance that defines the wine and makes it incredibly accessible. Wines of this quality can be rather expensive and unaffordable, but DeSante – who make only 1,000 cases in total – really deliver with this wine, both in terms of price and quality.” – Fiona Hayes

2016 Riesling, Steinmassel Trocken, Willi Bründlmayer, Kamptal, Austria

“Bründlmayer consistently produces wines with accessible refinement as well as the ability to age. This single-vineyard Riesling is no exception and offers crystalline minerality, white peach fruit and lime-zest acidity. It is drinking beautifully now, but will happily reside in a cellar for a further five to 10 years.” – Katherine Dart MW

2015 Viñedos Alcohuaz Cuesta Chica Garnacha, Valle de Elqui, Chile

“This unique, mineral expression of Garnacha is from the highest vineyard in Chile. It’s pretty revolutionary to work with Garnacha at over 2,000 metres’ altitude! This is made in concrete eggs by the brilliant Marcelo Retamal and the resulting wine is refined, poised and extremely well-judged. Delicious.” – Catriona Felstead MW

2013 Moulin-à-Vent, Vieilles Vignes, Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais

“It’s now one of the wine trade’s worst kept secrets that the Beaujolais Crus can be a source of great-value, age-worthy wines such as this. The nose combines ripe red fruit with spicy, savoury notes, while the fresh, mineral palate sings of the distinctive granite slopes of Moulin-à-Vent. Drinking brilliantly now with charcuterie or turkey sandwiches, but it will continue to gain complexity – to pinote (become more Pinot-like) in the local parlance – over the next decade or more.” – Will Heslop
