Made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes, this Jean-Claude Boisset wine is a seductive, silky red wine from Côte de Nuits. The soil on which the vines are grown is limestone-based, which they say benefits this delightful silkiness. The Chambolle-Musigny spends 15 months maturing in casks (with less than 20% of them new casks). It posses a full-bodied palate of jammy dark berries, with plenty of blackcurrant and blueberry.
Sauvignon Blanc from one of the top New Zealand producers, Cloudy Bay.

The grapes were grown in the Rapaura, Fairhall, Renwick and Brancott subregions of the Wairau Valley.
Luc Belaire Rosé is a popular sparkling wine produced in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France, made with three varieties of grape - Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Luc Belaire say that these three varieties were chosen, as each bring something special to the sparkling wine. The Grenache adds body to the wine, as well as dark fruit notes, the Cinsault brings delicate, floral touches to the table and the Syrah delivers a well-rounded flavour profile with some toasty hints.
The 2008 vintage Pinot Reserve 2008 from Chapel Down in Tenterden, Kent, produced using Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. A ripe, fruity nose of citrus and orchard fruit, developing hints of brioche along the way. According to Chapel Down, it pairs well with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs!
Hey, woah, far out. This 2012 vintage Chardonnay comes from the Wines That Rock range, which blend the wine world with the music world by having music-inspired names and designs for their expressions. The Chardonnay, for example, is titled Woodstock and of course features a label inspired by the famous folk music festival. In fact, the label looks incredibly similar to Arnold Skolnick's poster for Woodstock!
The wine itself is bright and vibrant with green apple, tropical fruit and refreshing citrus notes - perfect for listening to some Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young on a summer evening.
From the Spanish, family owned Bodegas Faustino, the 2001 Faustino I Reserva is made with mostly Tempranillo grapes, along with Graciano and Mazuelo. It was aged in a mix of French and American oak barrels for 26 months before being bottled. A good red wine also calls for a gorgeous bottle, hence why this comes in a frosted bottle with a traditional portrait on the label.
