A refreshingly different drinks supplier

As in all of our drinks categories, the latest buzzword in wine is 'premiumisation'.

Current research suggests that consumers are drinking slightly less wine but are happy to spend a bit more and go premium to quench their thirsts. With that in mind, here we take a look at some of our Premium Classics... 

La Battistina Gavi, Piemonte, Italy

Ever heard of the grape Cortese? Well it's the name of the grape that goes into Gavi. Gavi is the name of the region where the wine is produced. Simple huh? There's nothing simple about the wine though - A modern classic, beautifully aromatic with citrus notes and a racy acidity. Lovely with salads and fish dishes. 

Domaine de la Motte Chablis Premier Cru Vau-Ligneau, Burgundy, France

From one of the very best producers in the region comes this Chablis Premier Cru. This is serious stuff. Chardonnay grapes from 40 year old vines give an incredible concentration to this wine which spends just under a year in the finest oak barrels to give it a rich, textural feel. It's an absolute beauty and should be on every fine wine list.

Araldica Barolo 'Flori' Piemonte, Italy

Talk about Premium Fine Wine and it won't be long until Barolo gets a mention. This small region in North West Italy produces some of the finest, complex wines in the world. This example is produced by the quality conscious and forward-thinking co-operative Araldica and is comparatively very affordable. Perfect with gamey stews, roast lamb or sausage casserole.

Ginestet Lussac St.Emilion, Bordeaux, France

It's difficult to write about premium classics without throwing in a wine from Bordeaux. This particular wine is from just outside St.Emilion and its classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon gives flavours of black cherry and ripe plum. How about a glass or two of this and a roast for the perfect Sunday...

 

Idyllic quaffing as autumn draws in.
