The Robert Rolls Daily Drinkers – 15 wines under £15.00

Buy the wines in this offer on our online shop

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.

Whites
Domaine Preignes le Neuf Tour des Pins Blanc 2019
£8.95 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 2019
£9.45 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!

Antoine de la Farge L’Enfant Rebelle Sauvignon Blanc 2019
£12.95 per bottle inc VAT

Classic Loire Sauvignon. The rich nose shows floral elderflower with notes of green apple and gooseberry. The palate is racy, light and fresh with cool mouth-watering acidity, chalky lime saturated fruit and a tangy, vibrant finish that is bursting with citrus fruit. This wine feels like a summer day, try with salads, anything with a bit of goat’s cheese should do it!

Famille Gras Côtes du Rhône Blanc Les Grands Calcaires 2018
£12.95 per bottle inc VAT

The grapes grow on north facing slopes on chalky soils. A clever blend – Grenache Blanc brings richness, Clairette, Ugni Blanc and Bourboulenc freshness and cut, while Picpoul and Viognier bring aromatic complexity. The finished wine is beautifully balanced but also complex and characterful, textured and full of flavour. Drink very cool to see its racy side, let it warm up a little and pair it with fatty rillette to see its full range of flavours.

Domaine Laplace Pacherenc du Vic Bilh Sec 2017
£14.95 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
£14.95 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.

Domaine Buisson-Battault Bourgogne Aligoté 2017
£14.95 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.

Rosé
Domaine Saint André de Figuière Méditerranée Rosé 2019
£11.95 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 201
£14.95 per bottle inc VAT

The Magali has more depth and structure, but not at the expense of pleasure or stylish easy drinking. Another Provençal classic.

Reds
Domaine Preignes le Neuf Garrigue Rouge 2018
£9.45 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 2017
£10.95 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. A frankly brilliant everyday wine – ripe blackcurrant and violet perfume, soft tannins and surprising complexity and depth. House red Chez Chaddock!

Domaine Laplace Madiran l’Origine 2017
£12.45 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
£11.45 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.

Antoine de la Farge L’Enfant Rebelle Pinot Noir 2019
£12.95 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
£13.95 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.
