    Chablis: Domaine Christophe Camu 2023

    It has that elusive whisper of honey on the nose – it's there and it's gone – and a green apple-laden, bone-dry finish. It's fresh and – thanks to the fruit of 50-year-old vines – intense and concentrated.

    Cornas & St-Péray 2022: Report and top-scoring wines
    Quince and pear. Rich and ripe but not overly so, it's silky on the palate, fairly high in alcohol, enjoyably full and opulent, with a fresh core. Includes a new parcel this year of 70-year-old Marsanne, so is now around 90% Marsanne, 10% Roussanne. The rest is a mix of 60-year-old and seven-year-old vines. Vinified in oak. Drinking Window: 2023 - 2027. 93/100.

    Tinto Negro: Uco Valley Malbec Cabernet Franc 'Limestone Block' 2020

    Argentina on the Couch: Malbec, Terroir and Other Trends (Nov 2021)
    The 2020 Malbec Tintonegro Limestone Block is mixed with 12% Cabernet Franc, both from Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, where the vines grow in rocky, sandy soils with traces of calcium carbonate. Aged for 12 months in 15% new used oak. It is an intense, reddish purple. The 2020 offers rather liqueur-like aromas and hints of plum and thyme over an attractive violet backdrop. Juicy in the mouth, the fine, chalky tannins vie for dominance initially before lending a pleasant shape to the flow. The flavor is intense and sustained, leaving a touch of fruit behind at the end. Drink 2021 - 2023. 92/100.

    Match of the week: Roast Veal & Gevrey-Chambertin
    It was heady and fragrant, full of wonderfully pure fruit which showed off the delicate flavour of the veal and morels and an unctuously creamy sauce.

  5. Sancerre: Domaine André Vatan 'Maulin Bèle' Rouge 2022

    Sancerre: Domaine André Vatan 'Maulin Bèle' Rouge 2022

    Feefo logo

    Spectator Wine Club
    The 2022 Domaine André Vatan 'Maulin Bèle' Sancerre Rouge is a pinot noir of such easy appeal that it demanded inclusion. The Vatan family have supplied Yapp Bros for over 50 years and their white Sancerre is famously fine. This, though, is far rarer, made in tiny quantities with the same unerring skill and attention. With bright, ripe cherry fruit, it's light and fresh with typical earthy, smoky pinot notes and it works well lightly chilled. Gosh it's good!

    If you like swanky Rhône but quail at the price, then head for the biodynamic/organic 2022 Domaine Lombard 'Azalée' from Brézème in the north of the Côtes du Rhône AOC. A blend of 90 per cent Syrah and 10 per cent Viognier (à la Côte Rôtie), it's full of juicy red/black fruit lifted and softened by the co-fermented white and a touch of carbonic maceration. Lively, fresh and affable, the bottle was emptied in a trice. Tsk, that darn wife of mine...

    Yapp Côtes du Rhône Red 2022

    Spectator Wine Club
    The 2022 Yapp Bros Red Côtes du Rhône is the wine that Mrs R and I fought over the most, because it's so unfussily, brazenly tasty and because only a fool stands between my wife and her chosen bottle. A blend of Grenache and Syrah from the aforementioned Vignerons Ardéchois, it's plummy, juicy, soft, silky and so damn moreish that I can't imagine anyone not clasping it to them in sheer joy.

    IGP Méditerranée: Domaine Richeaume 'Tradition' Blanc 2022

    Feefo logo

    Spectator Wine Club
    The 2022 Domaine Richeaume 'Tradition Blanc' is typical Yapp fare, a deliciously welcoming blend of organic old-vine, handpicked Rolle, Viognier and Grenache Blanc (fermented separately) from the slopes of Mont Saint-Victoire near Aix-en-Provence. Enticingly aromatic and full of peaches, pears and apricots, it has weight, depth and complexity, and captures perfectly the rural France that Yapps is all about.

    Yapp White Burgundy: Cave de Lugny 2022

    Feefo logo

    Spectator Wine Club
    I've banged on about the 2022 Yapp Bros white burgundy ever since my socks were blown off by it at last year's tasting of The Bunch, that coalition of independent merchants of which Yapp Bros is a member. Made by the 100-year-old Cave de Lugny cooperative, it's as fine a house white burgundy as you'll find, at as fair a price. With fresh lemon, honey, nuts and cream, it's a gem.

    Côtes du Vivarais: Vignerons Ardéchois 'Grand Aven' Blanc 2022

    Feefo logo

    Spectator Wine Club
    ...such as the 2022 Grand Aven from the Côtes du Vivarais in the far north-west reaches of the southern Rhône. Made by the excellent, 2,000-grower-strong Vignerons Ardéchois cooperative, it's cracking value. A blend of Grenache Blanc and Marsanne, it's soft, citrusy and creamy with spring blossom and peach.
