Top 10 wines in the UK press

Serabel Cairanne Côtes du Rhône Villages, France 2013 

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 11.49.37David Williams of The Guardian kicks off our round-up this week with some top French drops, beginning with this Cairanne wine – part of the appellation that is celebrating its first anniversary since receiving official status.

But it’s not its protected designation that is getting Williams excited about this wine; in fact, it’s quite the contrary: “Given that the name “Cairanne” was already permitted on labels of wine from the area, albeit as part of the supposedly lesser-ranked Côtes du Rhône Villages designation, it’s hard at this distance to understand the fuss,” he writes.

“Or to see how the change will make much difference to those of us who have been buying such typically fulsome, spicy, great value reds as Serabel for years.”

£7.59, Waitrose
