Two Classy Reds from The Co-op
As the nights get longer and the days chillier, we move inevitably towards bigger reds.
There are many reasons why you might want something a little classier, something with a few years' age that will impress, be it for a birthday, anniversary, dinner party or just to check out possible Christmas wines in advance.
Whatever your reasons, the Co-op has a Bordeaux and a Rioja that go beyond mere everyday quaffers.
Château Tour Du Pas, St-Georges-St-Emilion 2015 (£15) a right bank Bordeaux from a good year, this is produced by former winemaker from Château Ausone
CUNE Imperial Rioja Reserva 2015 (£19.75) a great wine from a great producer that drinks nicely when still youthful and only improves with age
