With this in mind, Sotheby’s Wine brings to you an array of delectable bottles friendly to both wallet and palate. This range showcases impressive versatility and an affinity with food – just what’s needed to bring a touch of midweek magic to your wine diet.

Spoilt for choice? Take a look at some of the impressions of our team below for inspiration!

Left Bank

Esprit de Chevalier Rouge 2018 -

Lower left bank enthusiasts will welcome the well-concentrated polish of 2018 Esprit de Chevalier Rouge. This second wine of Domaine de Chevalier features a classic Graves bouquet of mulled cherries, leafy herbs, and loamy earth.

Armailhac 2018

A plush nose and a powerful palate. Huge structure for this wine, all coated with ample fruit. Quite austere because of those tannins and certainly will need a bit longer than usual for this wine. But could be quite an epic. Ambitious and successful, and will probably prove a landmark Armailhac.

Right Bank

Saintayme 2017 -

Saintayme is an elegant entry-level cuvée from the late Denis Durantou of L’Église-Clinet. With plush fruit on a leaner frame, this medium-bodied expression of Merlot offers a juicy core of dark red plum and mulberry, an excellent companion for an array of seasonal fall dishes. 

Chenade 2018 -

With a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Bouchet (Cabernet Franc), this is the great Denis Durantou’s sumptuous Lalande de Pomerol. Think polished and plummy fruit profile, with a soft-edged acidic line and depth of dry spices running throughout.
