What great fortune to launch our MoneyWeek Wine Club in December, when we load up with vinous treasures for our Christmas and New Year festivities. Each month, I’ll be giving you my personal recommendations from one of our hand picked expert wine merchants, and readers will enjoy exclusive savings on these bottles. To get the wine club off to a glorious start, I have chosen the eminent wine merchants Tanners, based in Shrewsbury since 1842, not least because they hosted an epic tasting last month which resulted in spoiling me with a host of stunners from which to pick the perfect six.
See below for individual notes on these keenly priced wines, suffice to say that they are all elite and have gained nose-bleed scores in my scribblings. Selected for specific entertaining tasks, you might find that the mixed case acts as a taster for you to charge through on receipt and then come back for more of your favourites, but I am confident that all six will tick all of your flavour boxes so why not just simply dive in and fill your cellar. Cheers! Matthew Jukes
