Robert and I are as proud of our ‘house’ wines as we are of anything we import. We work especially hard finding wines which offer the right combination of quality (high) and value (lots). I love wines like these, which I can open freely and pour and simply enjoy without too much thought. Finding these wines isn’t always easy, there are oceans of mass produced and rather characterless wine out there, wading through these to find the gems can be a tough job (I know, I know…). So, when we find a high quality yet inexpensive wine, made with care by families who are committed to their land, it makes me as proud, prouder, than getting an allocation from a top Burgundy domaine. It reminds me why I joined the trade in the first place, and that good wine is a pleasure that should be available to all.
So please find our favourite ’15 below £15’ here. Most often seen on the lists at some of London’s top restaurants, this collection shows you don’t need to sacrifice character, or interest, or sheer deliciousness, to find wines which won’t break the bank.

Domaine Preignes le Neuf Tour des Pins Blanc 2019
£8.10 per bottle inc VAT
Vermentino & Chardonnay made by the Laserre family in the Languedoc. These are great wines, well made, precise, characterful and importantly, fantastic value. They are proving extremely popular as house wines across London.
Domaine Preignes le Neuf Viognier 2018
£8.64 per bottle inc VAT
Forget oily, heavy Viognier, here the Laserres pick early and ferment in stainless steel to retain freshness. The result shows Viognier’s succulent floral perfume balanced by a zingy, refreshing palate. The house white chez Chaddock!
Domaine Sylvain Langoureau Aligoté 2015
£12.18 per bottle inc VAT
Burgundy’s second white grape and unfairly seen as the inferior cousin. But with old vines, 60 years plus here, and careful vinification, Aligoté can produce marvellously refreshing wines which clearly display their limestone terroir. The 2015 has developed well, showing a touch of honey alongside its ripe peach and pear fruit. Bin that cassis!
Domaine Laplace Pacherenc du Vic Bilh Sec 2016
£12.96 per bottle inc VAT
This wine is a mouthful, and not just its name. Produced from Petit Manseng grapes, it is full of zippy citrus fruit, honey and elderflower with a racy, mineral, spine. Just perfect now.
Château de la Bonnelière Chinon Blanc Rive Gauche! 2017
£13.14 per bottle inc VAT
100% Chenin Blanc, from vines growing close to the river. For fans of mouth-watering racy whites with a little bite, this is super refreshing and would make an excellent match for white fish or perhaps a goat’s cheese tart.
Château Langlet Blanc 2016
£14.34 per bottle inc VAT
White Bordeaux, 100% Sauvignon and barrel fermented giving it the profile of a good Pessac Léognan, plenty of fresh grapefruit on the nose and an exotic fruit flavour and full texture on the palate.
Domaine Nathalie & Gilles Fèvre Petit Chablis 2018
£14.70 per bottle inc VAT
From vines growing just outside of the classic region, on similar clay soils. A fruit forward style of Chablis with flavours of crisp green apple and seashell undertones.
Domaine Saint André de Figuière Méditerranée Rosé 2019
£10.74 per bottle inc VAT
A new wine for 2019, classically Provençal, with sunshine infused strawberry fruit, fresh acidity and a beautiful just pink colour. The perfect glugging rose, transform your garden or balcony into the Côte d’Azur!
Domaine Saint André de Figuière Magali Rosé 2018
£13.14 per bottle inc VAT
£28.74 per magnum inc VAT
The Magali has more depth and structure, but not at the expense of pleasure or stylish easy drinking. Another Provençal classic.
Domaine Preignes le Neuf Garrigue Rouge 2018
£7.98 per bottle inc VAT
Skilled wine making and attention to detail, combined with an absolutely terrific vintage, has really given us a treat here. Blending Grenache and Syrah with Merlot we have a juicy, fruit forward wine full of ripe berry fruit and notes of the garrigue. Best served slightly chilled – and hard to stop drinking!
Domaine Santa Duc Vin de Pays de Vaucluse Les Plans 2016
£9.60 per bottle inc VAT
Benjamin and Yves Gras excel at producing elegant, restrained southern Rhone wines that deliver the regions ripe, seductive fruit with freshness and a light touch. Here the altitude of the vineyards around Mount Ventoux give a wine with ripe blackcurrant and violet perfume, soft tannins and surprising complexity and depth. House red Chez Chaddock!
Domaine Laplace Madiran l’Origine 2016
£10.14 per bottle inc VAT
Madiran used to be known for hulking great reds which took forever to soften. A shame, because in the right hands Tannat, the local grape, can produce wines with wild hedgerow aromatics and cool, structured fruit. L’Origine blends some Merlot in to further soften the wine. Cracking value here, a must try.
Chateau Grand Verdus 2018, Bordeaux Supérieur
£10.74 per bottle inc VAT
Textbook Bordeaux from a great vintage, ripe cassis and pencil box, with fine tannins and perfect poise. The classic match would be roast lamb, but any red meat is a friendly foil and there is plenty of concentration here so it will handle rich sauces well.
Chateau de la Bonnelière Chinon Rouge Les Galets 2018
£11.94 per bottle inc VAT
Cabernet Franc from the Loire isn’t for everyone, but for those, like me, who enjoy its combination of crystalline fruit and herbaceous notes this wine is a joy. Light and easy to drink, I’d chill this a little and drink it with charcuterie, cheese and paté. Fantastic.
Jean-Paul Brun Beaujolais l’Ancien 2018
£13.74 per bottle inc VAT
Produced from old vines grown on clay and granite this wine is synonymous with Jean-Paul’s domaine. Hand harvested and vinified with great care before ageing in old wood and cement. Lots of ripe dark berry fruit and floral perfumes, with enough structure and density to match rustic meat dishes, especially good with sausages or confit duck. Outstanding value.
