WINE OF THE WEEK: Primo di Conti Côtes de Bergerac 2012


£11, Marks & Spencer


If this dark, handsome, cassis and cedar-scented red was from Bordeaux, it would be more expensive, but the wines of nearby Bergerac don't command the same prices. Lucky us. It's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, matured in French oak barrels for extra depth and a vanilla-edged smokiness. As stocks may have run dry by December, I'm flagging up now that it would be a lovely wine to give or to receive, especially as you could lay it down for a couple of years. Or drink it now with lamb, chops or roast, confit de canard, or steak.
