2010 Chapoutier Crozes-Hermitage, Les Meysonniers, Rhône Valley

( £15.99 down to £11.99, 13%, Sainsbury's )

The enfant terrible of the Rhône is at the top of his form right now, even on wines from lesser appellations, such as Crozes-Hermitage. This has classic Syrah aromas of tapenade and smoked meat, allied to freshness, brightness and length. It’s organic, its unoaked and it’s truly delicious.
