There is little mileage for consumers looking to buy Bordeaux 2007 en primeur, says Anthony Rose. "It's a sound enough vintage, good in parts" he reasons, "but only in the best of years is it worth shelling out in advance". Rose says one of the region's virtues is that good claret "doesn't have to cost an arm and both legs". Elsewhere he recommends the 2006 Shiraz Shaw and Smith (18.49, Noel Young) for its "distinctly savoury, peppery undertones of Adelaide Hills' cool climate vineyards".
