Matthew Jukes, MoneyWeek wine editor

Vernay is nothing short of a global superstar, famous for its insanely well-upholstered Condrieus and malevolent Côte Rôties.  While the suite of eye-wateringly expensive Condrieus have an ‘entry level’ Viognier, called Pied du Samson (£27.95, Yapp), few know that there is a red equivalent, too, called Fleurs de Mai.  Grown on the plateau above the Condrieu slopes, this diminutive Côte Rôtie is a thrilling wine with every element you could wish for in a forward-drinking, grand Syrah. Cracked pepper, deep plum and blackberry fruit and lashings of earth make this a serious treat.  Only 500 cases are made, so this is a wine that you need to rush to secure stock of. With only eight months in oak, this is a fleshy, expressive red which, after a quick decant, is ready to go. Your jaw will drop when you taste this wine.
