Christmas Cheers

In a year like 2020, sharing a bottle has undoubtedly had its complexities, which perhaps make every opportunity to raise a glass together even more special.

Here is a selection of wines which will add to the occasion. They span vintages, regions, prices and styles, though have one thing in common: they’re a testament to the talented people behind them, and will bring cheer to those who enjoy them.


Champagne

There's no wine as synonymous with celebration as Champagne is, whether it's the first drop of the day or the very last.

Sparkling

For efferverscent examples outside of Champagne, we've some very fine choices from the Loire Valley, Italy's Valdobbiadene and a homegrown British sparkling wine.

Chardonnay

Chardonnay offers some of the most complexity and sheer joy possible in a glass of white wine, not just from Burgundy but in other cooler climates like Germany.

Other whites

These great whites - a South African Chenin, a bone-dry Alsatian Riesling and a classified White Bordeaux - are best in their class, and deserving of your Christmas table.

Perfume and elegant reds

These joyful, lifted reds make the perfect transition from white, or the ideal first glass of the evening.

Richer and silky reds

These powerful reds offer as much warmth as they will merriment, ideal during the colder months.

Bordeaux

Claret is such a versatile wine - astonishing on its own, perfect with some beef and just as well suited to cheese.

Burgundy

No special meal is complete without red Burgundy, and these, all sourced directly from the winery, are truly special.

Sweet

From a delicate sweet sparkling wine that comes in at barely 5% alcohol to world-famous Sauternes, these wines will cap off any meal with ease.

Fortified

Sometimes, there's cause for a grand finale: where these wines come in.
