Christmas Wine Pairing07/12/2018
Which wines will you be serving?
We spend a lot of time preparing for Christmas lunch or dinner. Here are some Christmas wine pairing suggestions for the Christmas celebrations to save you time wondering which wines to serve.
Champagne or Sparkling Wine is a very accommodating wine and can be served as an aperitif or with any course of your menu.
The Brut Réserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champenois grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Served at Prince William and Prince Harry's weddings, Pol Roger is very reasonably priced at £39 per bottle. Available in a gift box.
Beautifully crafted with pure and precise flavours of yellow stone fruit, dried mango, nuts and vanilla. A crisp elegant structure with a long lingering soft finish. Full oaking but integrated perfectly.
A light Pinot with sweet clove and black cherry aromas. Sweet spice, smoky, leather and black plum flavours on the palate, all beautifully balanced.
A pale yellow hue with a subtle green tinge. Dry white offering delicious flavours of pear, litchi and guava. Very easy drinking and smooth.
A luxurious Sauternes from Bordeaux with a silky mouthfeel, slightly sticky, apricots and peaches, lychee and hints of eucalyptus.
Six bottles are included in this luxury selection of Christmas wines:
Pol Roger Brut Champagne NV
Giles Morat Sur La Roche Pouilly Fuisse 2016
Glenwood Grand Duc Chardonnay 2015
Robert Mondavi Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Caro Baron de Rothschild 2014
Chateau Filhot Grand Cru Classe Sauternes 2009 (375ml)
If you want to select only one or two wines for your Christmas celebration, we recommend a Pinot Noir and a Sparkling wine. Overall, Pinot Noir pairs well with most light and dark meats and a variety of dishes. And of course, who can enjoy a celebratory meal without Sparkling wine!
