Louis Jadot Combes aux Jacques 2013 Beaujolais Villages, France
12.5% alcohol. Vibrant, fresh raspberry and cherry fruit. Expressive with a damson bitterness that works well. Juicy and focused, and perhaps a touch reductive, this is worth a decant to help it show at its juicy, vivid best. 89/100 (£10.99 Tesco, £8.24 Waitrose)

Chateau de la Terriere Vielles Vignes 2012 Beaujolais Villages, France
12.5% alcohol. This comes from the village of Cercie, facing Mount Brouilly. Rounded, smooth raspberry fruit with some red cherry notes. Nice fine-grained structure. A subtle, elegant, pretty wine. 89/100 (£9.99 Majestic but £8.49 each if you buy 2)
