offer price £159.00
average price per bottle £10.60
This month’s mixed case of 15 bottles from Waitrose is evenly split between some delicious Burgundian bubbles, a delicate Provençal rosé (in bottles, not a box) and a classic Barolo.
Sparkling Burgundy, Méthode Traditionelle Brut NV, Cave de Lugny, RRP £13.99 This sappy fizz from an excellent Mâconnais co-operative is a terrific summer tipple: dry, but not austere, with bags of ripe fruit.
Esprit de Buganay Rosé, Côtes de Provence 2016, RRP £10.99 Pale and interesting rosé with pleasing hints of redcurrants and raspberries.
Barolo, Cantina Terre del Barolo, Piemonte 2012, RRP £20.99 Let this breathe for half an hour and it will repay your patience: light in colour, but profound in tar-and-roses flavours.
