Wines of the week

Every Friday (doesn't your week begin on Friday?!) we select particularly unmissable wines, whether because they are new and different, or a notable bargain, or something simply too stunning to keep to ourselves. We try to make our choices as international as possible although sometimes the wines will be available exclusively in the UK or the US, or occasionally somewhere else. If in doubt about your local stockists, check out the admirable www.winesearcher.com

From €9.90, $?, £19.99 Find the dry Italian Petit Manseng Find the sweet Clos Uroulat Jurançon Who would have thought it? Here's a really satisfying dry white made from an indigenous Basque variety grown just north of Rome. I choose it not to denigrate any of the hundreds of. More...

From £9.95, $17.95 Find this wine This distinctive white really caught my attention at a recent tasting of wines the Wine Society in the UK is especially proud of. Not only did it strike me as being particularly complex and good value for £9.95, I was intrigued by what. More...
From €5.75, 12.50 Swiss francs, £11.95 Find the 2012 white Find the 2011 white Find the 2011 red I do try not to be repetitive, and I know that I also recommended the 2011 vintage of this wonderful wine as a wine of the week in August 2012. But the. More...

From  €7.60, £9.95, 13.60 Swiss francs Find this wine  I am a big fan of the dry Furmints that have been emerging from Tokaji in eastern Hungary. This grape has the most exciting combination of nerve, fire and ageing ability. And although the botrytised sweet wines it is most. More...
From Aus$8.99, €9.60, £6.66 Find this wine Well, here's a surprise! An Australian Chardonnay from one of the worst vintages in living memory that I honestly think is great value. I wasn't very keen on the 2010 but this 2011 blend for De Bortoli's DB Reserve Chardonnay. More...
From €6.90, $13.09, 12.50 Swiss francs, £10, 2,100 yen Find Hecht & Bannier's well-distributed 2012s If California is America's fruit basket, then the Languedoc is Europe's grape bin. Never was this more apparent than this week at Vinisud, the annual. More...
From $11.99, £16.95 Roberson, 55,000 Korean won Find this wine The image of California wine is far removed from bargain territory. We know California wine can be cheap, but good? Even the presentation by my co-author of American Wine Linda Murphy called Does. More...
