Duboeuf Beau­jo­lais Vil­lages, France — €11

This very drink­able Beau­jo­lais Vil­lages is at this very de­cent price un­til Septem­ber 6 with the Duboeuf’s Fleurie sell­ing at €16. Lots of bright cherry and red fruits with a pleas­ing straw­berry kick on the fin­ish. For best re­sults serve this a lit­tle cool — per­haps 10C and try with a mid-week curry.

Duboeuf Ma­con Lugny, Bur­gundy, France — €13

The Ma­con re­gion is the most southerly part of Bur­gundy and borders on Beau­jo­lais. Lugny is the most fa­mous of the dif­fer­ent Mâ­con Vil­lages and this has typ­i­cal light flo­ral and hon­eyed aro­mas mixed with melon and pear flavours.

Suit­able for a big bowl of mus­sels per­haps.

Two Oceans Sauvi­gnon Blanc, West­ern Cape, South Africa — €9.99-€10.99

I prob­a­bly don’t men­tion enough sauvi­gnon blanc given how pop­u­lar the grape is. South African sauvi­gnon al­ways has a net­tle and goose­berry back­drop that I like and this has bonus pas­sion­fruit and ripe melon aro­mas and lots of green ap­ple acid­ity. Try with some fish and chips.
