Some wines will suit your personality better than others, which is especially helpful when you’re spoilt for choice. Here’s a little guide for inspiration.
You’re an adventurer
Try a cuvée from Château Kefraya in Lebanon; this cuvée is an amazing blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourdvèdre, the perfect accompaniment for a Mediterranean meal.
Seekers of originality will enjoy this ancestrally-crafted wine from the Beaujolais’ Jean-Paul Brun. A sparkling rosé made from Gamay that’s full of flavour, a great way to elevate a festive moment.
Got friends or family coming over soon? Nothing is more easy-drinking and enjoyable than a well-vinified Grenache. Gramenon’s Rubiconde cuvée is the perfect example, a wine that’s irresistibly fruity.
You love all things elegant
Let’s head to the prestigious Burgundy region, with a vin de France from Domaine Gros Frère & Soeur. The parcel where the grapes are grown is found just above the grands crus of Vosne-Romanée, and produces supple and highly distinguished wines.
You’re into the classics
If you want something that’s well-made and steeped in tradition, Château Meyney is a Saint-Estèphe that nicely represents what a fine Médoc is. Available in magnum format for its 2011 vintage, this is a must-have for your cellar.
You’re a true wine geek
An estate that’s especially hard to find has slipped into our September selection: Jean-Louis Dutraive with the Fleurie ‘Le Pied de la Rue’ cuvée. As well as being a fine wine, this bottle will really have you standing out from the rest at your next tasting.
