Look no further - Christmas Wine List Suggested

Look no further - Christmas Wine List Suggested

Here are six of our favourite wines we'll be drinking over Christmas and New Year. They are terrific wines that can't be missed. We've also added in the essentials - Champagne and Sauternes.

Esme's Selection

'Sacromonte' Rosso, Castello di Potentino, Tuscany 2016

Sangiovese at its best from Potentino, in Tuscany. Rich, organic and irresistible!

Mâcon Uchizy, Domaine Talmard, Burgundy 2022

A lovely Mâcon, and probably the best there is. From top-grower Domaine Talmand. It has a creamy, mineral backbone. Perfect with shellfish and smoked salmon, or on its own.

Château Ramafort Cru Bourgeois Médoc Bordeaux 2015

My favourite claret at below £20 a bottle. A tad better than their 2010, of which we sold over 2,000 cases! Rich, concentrated and mature – and most importantly delicious. 

Champagne Michel Guilleminot

Champagne - you simply cannot have too much. It’s our general rule, and one made ever more rigid over the holiday season. So, we say your first step to full compliance should be made at Champagne Michel Guilleminot, single-grower-fizz-producer extraordinaire, and undoubtedly our favourite house. All pinot noir.

David's Selection

Chablis 1er cru Beauroy, Domaine de la Motte 2021

I’m always impressed how 70% of France’s oyster consumption happens over the festive period, and when you have so fine a food-pairing 1er Cru Chablis as De la Motte’s, you can see why. I find it equally delicious with langoustines and foie gras.

Sauternes 2016

A few half bottles of this great declassified star wine are always popular in the Scottish highlands.

Happy drinking,
