WINE OF THE WEEK - BRANCOTT ESTATE PINOT NOIR 2012Date published: 20/08/14

The fruit in this wine comes mainly from across Marlborough, with small amounts from other regions, creating a consistent benchmark Pinot. A variety of yeast strains, and ageing in a mixture of French and American oak are also used, further enhancing complexity.

Bright red cherries and summer berries characterise the fruit, highlighted by aromas of dried herbs. The sweetness of the fruit is balanced by firm tannins and a streak of taut acidity.

Château Guiot 2012 Costières de Nîmes

£7.64 - when you buy any two buy 2 save 15% wines

A real Majestic favourite. Located just outside on Nimes, this wine shares similar traits with Rhone wines than it does with neighboring Languedoc.

Grenache and Syrah grapes are combined in this wine, giving a classic rich colour with a vibrant and herbaceous aroma.

On the palate this wine is very smooth, forest fruit flavours mingled with spices, with a delectable finish.

A wine that is suited to many dishes and occasions, but a Lamb Tagine and couscous matches beautifully.

Gone are the days of boring beer. Walk into any pub, bar or restaurant and you can get so more than just a carling on draught! Micro-breweries are popping up everywhere and why not - there is so much variation with the humble hop and barley that there is ample opportunity to carve a little niche in a rapidly expanding market.

Help; my wine is corked!Date published: 26/05/14

Unfortunately, cork taint is an inevitable problem when sealing wine with natural cork. Here at Majestic, however, we feel it shouldn't cause you any hassle!

It's as easy as pie for us to replace; either we can credit the value of the bottle against your next order, or we can do a simple swap and change for you.

If ordering online or over the phone, be sure to put a note in the delivery instructions space to say that you have a bottle you'd like to return due to it being corked or just mention it to us when ordering over the phone. We can then arrange to collect and replace the offending bottle when delivering.

If you prefer to see our smiling faces in store, you can return the bottle to us here and we can exchange it!

All we ask that you keep the bottle and some of the wine inside, so that we can record the nature of the fault and helping to assist our suppliers in their quality control.

Why doesn't wine taste like grapes?!Date published: 10/03/14

It is a little ironic that wine is made entirely from grapes and yet if you have a glass, it rarely tastes like grapes. In fact, it can taste of almost anything, from pineapple to lemon (for white wine), from plum, to leather (in the case of red wine).

Some people even think that small amounts of these fruits are added to wine to change the flavour, but it is in fact the extremely complex process of wine-making which actually changes the chemical compounds found in the grapes so that they resemble those found in other fruits.

Almost every step of the wine-making process can change the flavour and body of the wine, for example the can undergo Malalactic Fermentation, which changes the harsh Malic Acid (acid found in apples, lemons etc) into Lactic Acid (acids found in dairy). New World Chardonnay often undergoes this process to turn an appley, citrusy wine into a creamy, buttery wine.

If you would like to know more about these processes, simply ask a member of staff next time you are in store and they will be happy to go into more detail.

  • Hannah Senior Manager

    I started my Majestic career in Nottingham 6 years ago, after a tour of the north west, having worked in Birkdale, Chester and most recently Macclesfield, I am back! A massive Chardonnay fan, one of my favourites being Catena Alta Chardonnay. I am also partial to a glass of Provence Rose, especially when the sun is shining!
  • Simon Trainee Manager

    This is the second store on my Majestic journey having spent my first few months at Nottingham North. My quest began with favourites firmly routed in the New World and Spain. However after just a few months at Majestic I have learned to appreciate that every wine has a special place and perfect partner.
  • Steve Trainee Manager

    I've just made a short jump across Nottingham from the new North Nottingham store. I'm gaining some great wine knowledge and am developing a keen taste for Chardonnay and Syrah. I have a great love of all things food related so if you are looking for a food pairing i'll always be on hand to give you an idea.
  • Tiggy Trainee Manager

    This is my second store with Majestic having previously been on the other side of the country in Worcester. I'm in the final stages of my WSET level 3, so feel free to test me! I love anything Pol Roger (gifts welcome) and am currently getting to know my Bordeaux wines - St. Emillion right banks are winning at the moment.
  • Will Senior Assistant Manager

    This is my second stint in the Nottingham store so I already recognise a few faces! I'm a huge fan of all things Pinot Noir and I've been really impressed some the new Beaujolais wines that we have in this summer!
