Two Everyday Bordeaux

Two everyday Bordeaux from Dourthe, via The Wine Society and Booth's

Dourthe SB No 1, Bordeaux, 2014 (£7.95, The Wine Society) zippy, zesty, aromatic Sauvignon from Bordeaux; modern and fresh with a waxy, saline texture and a whiff of white pepper.

Pure and clean yet weighty. Very Good - and excellent value.

Match with pork and sage terrine or monkfish and herb broth.

Chateaux de Ricaud, Bordeaux Superieur, 2012 (£9.95, Booth's) juicy Bordeaux full of cherries and coffee grounds with fresh acidity. It has an old-world firmness and structure, but is slightly hot and alcoholic.

Match with meaty stews and spicy sausages
