Everyday drinking wines that go with a host of foods are a must to have in the house for a spontaneous tipple, says Rob Buckhaven
1 Dry white Pujalet 2011 Vin de Pays du Gers (£4.99, Waitrose Wine Direct) is a lime-blossom palate pleaser.
Blagger’s guide The Colombard grape in this wine produces crisp whites and is also used in Armagnac.
2 Sparkling rosé Millione Frizzante Rosé (£8.99, Sainsbury’s) is full of summer-berry bubbles.
Blagger’s guide This is known as the “wine with a conscience” as £1 from each bottle goes to ActionAid.
3 Round red Les Dauphins Côtes du Rhône Reserve (£6.97, Asda) is a blackberry-rich red.
Blagger’s guide The vinyards that produce this wine once belonged to the son of the King of France, the “Dauphin”.
