Case at a glance

6 bottles of red

Bin number:

2 x Les Chartrons Bordeaux
Bordeaux , France

Alc vol:13.00% | Line no:642575
Les Chartrons was built on land that belonged to a monastery (or ‘chartreux’), and was also home to 18th-century wine traders. This wine is 60% Merlot, bringing juicy blackberry flavours, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, lending structure, and the remainder Cabernet Franc. Stylish and deliciously approachable, it’s perfect with roast lamb.

2 x Santa Julia Reserve Valle de Uco Bonarda
Valle de Uco, Argentina

Alc vol:13.00% | Line no:676046
The Malbec grape has made Argentina's name, but the young pretender to its crown is certainly Bonarda. Generally lighter in alcohol than Malbec, it delivers the same fruit intensity with layers of black cherry and the softest of tannins.

2 x Araldica Barbera d’Asti Superiore
Piedmont , Italy

Alc vol:14.00% | Line no:476078
Warm, spicy aromas of blueberries and plums are complemented by subtle, smoky notes. The palate is rich and generous with juicy cherry and more plum fruit, and meaty, spicy notes beneath. Soft oak tannins offer an extra dimension to the texture. Try this wine with a traditional, richly flavoured lasagne or a hearty stew.

It is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18
