Our in-house wine experts pick the perfect bottle to try right now
The arrival of longer, lighter evenings and warmer days lends itself beautifully to a deliciously cool, crisp glass of chablis. At M&S, we’ve been working with Union des Viticulteurs de Chablis for 25 years, and this 2015 vintage is a fine example of the much-loved French wine, from the Burgundy region.
The area’s cool climate and limestone soils give this wine its distinctive mineral character. With its notes of green apple, balanced by a slight nuttiness and gentle citrus tang, it’s heavenly with grilled fish, seafood pasta or a summery goat’s cheese and puy lentil salad.
Ever felt overwhelmed when choosing wine, wondering which bottle to drink with dinner? This handy flavour wheel is a great starting point.
Red wines can be broadly split into lighter styles, which work with chicken or mushroom dishes; medium-bodied, perfect alongside rich pasta with meat ragu; and full-bodied, which pair beautifully with venison or beef.
Rich whites bring out the sweet flavours in hearty root veg or sausage casserole, while aromatic whites, such as riesling, taste amazing paired with seafood pasta. Lighter, fresh whites work with white fish or salads.
When it comes to rosé, heavier grapes, like navarra, can stand up to meaty curries or burgers, while refreshing, Provençal-style rosé tastes delicious with crab and shellfish.
