    Finally, for those who enjoy their clarets more mature, I suggest the 2010 Ch. de l’Abbaye de Saint-Ferme, an extremely well-regarded Bordeaux Supérieur made from old vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot planted at the striking 11th century Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Ferme, some 40km east of Bordeaux itself. It’s absolutely bang on song and so it should be, coming from a 10/10 vintage and having had eight years to relax and open out. It’s soft, mellow and silkily seductive with plums, blackcurrants, spice and even earthy truffles on both nose and palate and although I’m not sure it’s quite got the legs to last till next Christmas, it’s in absolutely peak condition for this one. £11.45 down from £11.95.
