My first wine of this type. The bottle is sealed with a glass stopper, something I have never seen in a wine before. Lemon colour. Sweet lemon nose, but it's quite faint even in a large glass. Perhaps a touch tropical, too. Very lean, then an almost watery midpalate, with more punch on the finish. More tropical fruit. Reminds me of a New Zealand sauvignon blanc in some ways, albeit at more than twice what I'd pay for the quality. Don't serve it too cold, and/or pair with food. For curiosity rather than regular drinking. [Plastic-lined glass stopper; 13.5% abv; Cornelius Wine, ~£25].

Virtually colourless. Pungent, musky nose with lots of toasty lemon. Okay taste, a bit disjointed, a little lower acidity than expected. Okay for the price. [Screwcap; 9% abv; Sainsbury's, ~£5.80].

Very pale. Toasty-saline nose. A bit watery on the palate, but there's fruit and good juicy acidity. Melon and cranberry. Not bad, not distinctive, but a good price. [Screwcap; <0.5% abv; Sainsbury's, on offer at £2.10].

This is the first time I've seen a vintage of this marque. Very pale. Broad, toasty, slightly lactic nose, with crisp lemon and pastry. A pure, sweet apple midpalate that's very appealing, it's a little floral, approachable and pretty. Increasingly biscuity with time. Rather high dosage, I suspect, but it works fine. I doubt it has the guts to age very long, but it's nice right now and well priced. [Composite cork + cage; 12.5% abv; Lidl, £19.99].

Pale gold, a touch deeper than expected for the age. Lovely broad aroma, much more mature than it ought to be, with coffee, nuts, mushroom, and pear. Chalky, sweet palate, more of that aged character. Much lower acidity than I was expecting, too, but it's not unbalanced and there's a core of bright fruit. A touch of herbal bitterness on the finish which mostly dissipates. I'm not sure if this is a representative bottle, maybe it was stored poorly, as it's ready to drink and won't benefit from further ageing. Reminds me of the '95 Blanc des Millénaires I had a couple of years ago. Lucky I like older champagne! Great value at this price, naturally. [Composite cork + cage; 12.5% abv; Amazon, £36.03].

Pale lemon colour. Classic moscato nose, sweet white grape and peach. Very sweet, honeyed taste. Pear, grape, apricot. A little low on acidity, this is something of a simple fruit bomb, but fun and easily rich enough to pair with most desserts. Not the best of its type but not bad. [Cork; 5% abv; Cornelius Wine, Edinburgh, ~£14].

People have been waxing lyrical about this vintage, so I thought I'd best try it before the price shoots up. Lemon colour. Mild but nice, bready nose with apple, a little honey and lemon, and a floral element. Very creamy mousse. It is delicious - well-integrated and focused, but also generous. Somewhat savoury - I often think of puff pastry in wines like this - but there's also lots of crisp fruit. A tiny bit of salted caramel. After some time, lots of sweet lime. Great concentration, I feel like this has more to offer than the '09 I had a couple of years ago, which was a bit delicate. Drinking very well now, but with the capacity to score slightly higher in ten to twenty years. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Majestic, £189].

Lemon colour. Fairly rich, musky nose with a strong elderflower note. Clean, crisp taste with a good acidic bite. Lemon, green apple, green grape, and more elderflower. More varietally-typical than most non-alcoholic wines, this is good, juicy and fresh, with enough character to prevent it slipping down unnoticed. [Screwcap; <0.5% abv; Sainsbury's, £3.50].

"Alcohol-removed wine". Pale pink. Faint dry nose. Pleasant taste, good acidity, juicy pear syrup and apricot. Later, lots of strawberry. Quite sweet but balanced. Very tasty, not especially like 'real' white zinfandel, but nice enough. [Screwcap; <0.5% abv; Asda, £3.60].

Pale orange. Interesting, unexpected nose, savoury and musky with a distincive note of what I think is peanut and even a hint of treacle. Tangy, vibrant taste, good acidity, red fruit, almost aggressive mousse. This is a bit spiky, but as non-alcoholic wines tend to be rather meek, that's no bad thing. A good effort. [Cork + cage; <0.05% abv; Asda, £3.98].

'De-alcoholised'. Palest lemon colour. Light, sweetish aroma, a touch musky, with white flowers, green grape, and a hint of vanilla. The taste is more like a riesling Kabinett, and this is no bad thing - more concentrated than many non-alcoholic wines, with a sherbetty acidity, good sweetness, and a pure fruit flavour, mandarin juice predominating. Probably the best of this category I've had to date, would just about pass for real wine. Very tasty. [Screwcap; 0% abv; Waitrose, £5.99].

Essentially colourless. Pleasant, fairly light nose of pure elderflower. Plenty more of this on the palate, a little juicy white grape and peach fruit, adequate acidity and a little sweetness. Pleasant enough, a bit more body than some alcohol-free wines. [Screwcap; 0% abv; Waitrose, £3.55].

"Alcohol-free wine". Almost colourless and odourless - perhaps the faintest hint of apple and lemon if I inhale deeply. Pleasant enough taste, mostly green grape fruit with some residual sweetness and a nice balance. Inoffensive to the point of barely being there. According to a retailer, the grapes are picked at a low potential alcohol level, fermented as normal, then the alcohol is removed by vacuum distillation <30ºC. [Screwcap; 0.05% abv, Waitrose, £3.29].

"De-alcoholised" syrah-cabernet sauvignon blend. Pale pink colour. Faint but pleasant red fruit aroma, could definitely pass for regular wine. Good flavour, juicy fruit with cranberry, lemon, and mandarin, and a touch of something tropical like guava. As with all the other non-alcoholic wines I've tried, it slips down too easily to fool you into thinking it's the real thing, but this is balanced, fresh, and very tasty. A little dilute but otherwise recommended within the category, despite being a bit more expensive than many. [Screwcap; 0% abv; Waitrose, £5.99].

It's that time of year again. In the twelve months since I first had this, it's become ubiquitous. Very pale. Faint moscato-like nose with a saline hint. Pretty good acidity on the palate, not too much sugar. A bit of herbal/nettle complexity and a touch of gooseberry, but generally quite simple and lacking any bite to stop you glugging it - there's no way you'd mistake this for real wine, unless it was years since you had any. Not too bad though, and looks the part. [Composite cork + cage; <0.5% abv; Scotmid, £3].

Woodwinters Edinburgh Fine Wine Bash (Woodwinters Edinburgh): Wine of the night for me, given the price. Very dark garnet colour. Fragrant violet(?) nose. Blueberry and blackcurrant, sweet taste, a little tannin. Really easygoing and quite ravishing. A stalwart at the table described it, half jokingly, as pizza wine, and he was right - this would be a great pairing with the best pizza you can find (or make). 14.3% abv; Woodwinters, £52].

Woodwinters Edinburgh Fine Wine Bash (Woodwinters Edinburgh): Cherry juice colour. Barnyard on the nose? Cheese/mushroom. Not much fruit. Lovely taste, good acid bite, a touch of tomato and berries, with lots of drying tannin, but nonetheless quite sweet. Decidedly overpriced. 80% new oak for 18 months, biodynamic, natural yeasts.

Woodwinters Edinburgh Fine Wine Bash (Woodwinters Edinburgh): Tasted blind. Ivory colour. Dumb nose, a touch lactic. Better taste - classic but still anonymous. Citrus pith note builds. Another shock on the reveal - I've had great experiences with this producer, but although many at the tasting preferred this to the Moët, I did not. [Woodwinters, ~£57].

Woodwinters Edinburgh Fine Wine Bash (Woodwinters Edinburgh): Tasted blind. Ivory colour. Rather toasty, plenty of lemon, chalky, with white flowers and maybe greengage skin? Delicious, quite honeyed, sweet lemon. Was a real surprise when the producer was revealed - this is lovely right now. [12.5% abv; RRP £40-60].

Orange-gold colour. Pungent nose, rich and syrupy, lots of caramel and milk chocolate, tea leaves, cardamom. Suprisingly vinous taste, fruity, then bitter and incredibly drying on the finish. A strong alcoholic burn. This is complex and interesting, but I'm so glad I only got a 3cl measure - it's not worth anything like the RRP in my opinion. Maybe just not my style. The next day, a little residue in the glass had taken on the pure scent of clove. [45% abv; Retails at ~£220]

My first from this house. Pale lemon colour. Crisp apple nose, rather toasty at first then a bit buttery. Lean and taut, searing acidity, very primary - lots of lemon and apple. After a long while, quite nutty. Precise and ultra clean. For me this needs another couple of decades - I suppose that's to be expected, given the producer's association with Salon.

My second go with this. Pale yellow. Quite a charming nose, full and ripe with chalk, orchard fruit, and a surprisingly mature coffee-pastry note. Similar taste, with searing lemon acidity and lots of green apple. Vintage intensity is there, and it's got some nice bottle age, but is maybe lacking a touch of harmony and finesse. Great value, though. [Cork + cage; 12.5% abv; Marks & Spencer, £27].

Moderately shrunken cork. Lemon colour - paler than expected. Lemon on the nose, unassuming and quite lactic. Youthful, high acid taste. Lots of citrus, green apple. With air, a strong note of orange. Bracing, entirely lacking the aged character I was hoping for. Could do with more dosage - and I hardly ever say that. Disappointing. Bottled Nov 2013, disgorged Jun 2016. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Drinkmonger, ~£67].

Palish lemon colour. Faint but curiously sweet nose, more like a true dessert wine; Turkish delight and a hint of geranium. Good rich taste, sweeter and fuller-bodied than I'd expect for Kabinett, but also less varietally typical. Lots of green grape and green apple. Very tasty but a bit linear.

Quite dark, strawberry juice colour. Very mild nose, just a faint whiff of berry fruit. Moderate flavour, chewy pinot fruit. Taut, almost austere. I'm not sure about this. It's perhaps too serious for a rosé, lacking generosity. Best with food, I'd imagine. Slips down fine but not worth the RRP, leaves me a bit cold. My 500th champagne tasting note published on CT!

My first 1980! A cuvée I have fond memories of, mostly the '96 which was sold in Marks & Spencer a decade or so ago. This has their now defunct St Michael marque on the neck and their name in small print on the main label, so it was being bottled for them back in the 80s too. A prestige grand cru chardonnay made by a co-operative, Juhlin rated it 91 in 2003.

Cork removed with a faint sigh. Deep honey gold. A little effervescence on pouring, but no bead in the glass. Lovely buttery apple nose, clearly mature, rather delicate. After a while, a strong, pure caramel scent. A touch of mousse on the tongue. Lovely flavour, good acidity, quite intense, lots of vibrant fruit, with orange and satsuma, apple, lemon and lime. Aside from the buttery note, it's still quite youthful (though not young) - I could believe it was 15 years younger. Really delicious, integrated, and life affirming in the way great wines are. Excellent value, naturally. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Vintage Wine Gifts, £146.97 after discount, listed at £169.97].

Palest gold. Sweetish nose, a touch musky. Lime and melon. Quite high acidity, with sugared green grape; floral and fruity. More characterful than prosecco, some similarities with moscato, but at the alcoholic strength of champagne. Light but not as frivolous as the label implies.

I've not seen a rosé version of this cuvée before. Palest pink, like a glass of water mixed with a teaspoon of strawberry juice. A mild, unexciting nose with initially an unpleasant whiff that blows off and reveals a bit of red fruit. The taste outperforms this, thankfully - there's a good richness, with a meaty red fruit intensity that I associate with pinot noir-dominated cuvées (but the label carries no info on varieties). Good acidity, and what I assume is moderately high dosage that works well. Broadens out with air, nice apple and pear notes. Well priced. [Composite cork + cage; 12% abv; Aldi, £14.99].

Very pale. Delicate nose of lemon jelly, a touch of minerality. Lovely rich taste, toothsome with unsurprisingly strong acidity, but it's ripe enough to not seem harsh. Sour apple, lemon, satsuma, maybe even pineapple. Almost vintage-level concentration. Commendable. Zero dosage, 50% reserve wines (no doubt this accounts for some of the richness); vines >35 years old; oak aged; 6 months on the lees; partial malolactic. Disgorged Jan 2019.

3cl sample. Deep gold. A high, sweet, smokey nose with a strong pine (resin?) note and a whack of vanilla. The taste is sweet but taut, with icing sugar; there's plenty of tingle but it not quite a burn; tobacco and cola on the finish which is very dry. Not lovable, but certainly vibrant and interesting, and much less primary than much younger rhums agricoles I've tried in the distant past. Apparently includes rum from the 1976, 1970, and 1952 vintages. [44% abv; RRP ~£160 but apparently now out of production].

3cl sample served cool in large balloon glass. Mid copper-gold. Deep, sweet, woody nose, with lots of caramel, a little cooked banana, and spice. Rather fiery edge. Disappointing taste: initially sweet, with milk chocolate and sweet coffee, but the midpalate is disjointed, overly woody, and the finish is too spiritous and astringent. Surprisingly harsh considering the suggested price. [40% abv; RRP ~£125].

Rather pale copper colour. Fairly broad, crisp nose, with apple, lemon, a little melon, and a touch of salinity - nothing 'pink'. The taste is, however, and this is helped by the higher dosage; a bit sherbetty, with good acidity keeping it fresh. As ever with sweeter champagne, this lacks a little finesse, but it's a good attempt and well priced. For parties, with fruity desserts, or to tempt people who find most champagne too tart.

Very pale. A pleasant nose, clean and sweet with green apple, grape, and lemon - rather prosecco-like. Similar taste, a little simple and frivolous for champagne, but at this price it's not bad, and might tempt fans of other sparkling wines across. Good tangy acidity, a touch of salinity, almost no bitterness. Fine but forgettable. The label states 'predominantly pinot noir', though this doesn't show.

Served cool from medium-sized brandy balloon. Mid copper colour. A rather fiery, high-toned nose, citrus and wood. Not to my taste at all, bitter on the midpalate, rather spicy, a little sweet with plenty of burn. I know very little about cognac, but had higher hopes for an XO. Unrated as I'm not sure how typical it is. Letting it warm up, the nose turns extravagantly fruity the taste gains a chalky sweetness, but it still fails to charm. A glass left out overight takes on a strong, pure scent of raisin - better. [Cork stopper; 40% abv; Sainsbury's, £22/50cl].

Unremarkable appearance. Rather pungent nose dominated by savoury pastry, then some apple. Lovely broad, rich taste. More orchard fruit but also round citrus, crisp but restrained acidity, and good balance. This has consistently performed above its price and provenance and continues to do so.

Fairly deep orange gold. A very sweet, smooth nose, with milk chocolate and a hint of coffee, a faint burn on the back end. While I'm not a neat spirits drinker, this is almost palatable that way (served at room temperature in a medium-sized brandy balloon), very sweet initially but rather fiery and moderately bitter on the finish. Milky cocoa and something like tea leaves, no tropical fruits or anything like that. Gets better as it warms up. Good value but only just a sipping rum, in my opinion.

Garnet with a red tint. Sweet cassis and berry compote nose, perhaps a touch of tomato; very fruity and inviting. Initially there's something wrong with the flavour though, dominating the midpalate is a strong earthy, almost acrid taste. There's juicy fruit beyond, and mild drying tannins. I don't know if this is an off bottle or what. Not undrinkable, but not pleasant to begin with. Gets better with air, as is often the case. Unrated as unsure if it was faulty.

Yellow gold. Luscious, creamy fruit jelly nose, sweet, deep, and pure - a real joy. The taste is very similar, with a good weight, just a touch lighter than expected. Excellent acid-sugar balance, rich ripe fruit, clean and utterly delightful. Apple, pear, mandarin. Increasingly spicy on the finish. There's nothing confected here, it's just wonderful pure fruit, ageless and effortless. I drink very little sweet wine these days, but this is hard to fault.

Mid gold colour. Really lovely nose, rich caramelised orchard fruit, sweet and pure. The flavour is similarly luscious, not yet aged but mellowed a little by time; intense apple and orange fruit, good acidity and residual sweetness. Expansive mousse.

Fairly shrunken cork. Pale copper. Restrained but unusual nose of mushroom and tomato, a little dry and woody, but also some more typical red berry fruit. There's more of this savoury muskiness on the palate, moderate acidity and a whisper of bitterness. Not as good as I remember, but maybe this bottle is past its best. Still drinkable and interesting. Added a point because the next day it was much improved, especially the aroma. Maybe it's not too old after all. [Cork + cage; 12% abv; Cornelius Wine, Edinburgh, £27].

A local wine merchant has begun to stock this producer's full range, and I'm hoping to try them all, as they sound interesting and seem fairly well priced. Even this NV rosé isn't run of the mill - an extra brut all meunier wine made from 60% blanc de noirs (40% reserve wines), 30% saignée, and 10% still red wine, vinified in barriques and foudres.

Mid copper colour. Very biscuity nose, initially a touch green and vegetal but this is replaced by a strong cherry note. Lots more cherry on the palate, a nice mousse, tangy acidity and a little grapefruit bitterness on the finish. This is nice, quite serious and muscular considering meunier's reputation, and good value. Would work with food like salmon, duck, or maybe fruit salad.

Zalto Denk'Art dessert glass. Apparently equal parts 2015 and 2016 wines. Disgorged Oct 2018, 2.5g/l dosage. [Composite cork + cage; 12.5% abv; Woodwinters, £35].
