1. Champagne Louis Blanc – Get things Started
Start the day with Champagne for aperatif. This Champagne has some bottle age so the toast and brioche flavours really linger here. They are deep flavours that push this champagne well above some of the grand marque champagnes that we all know in our eyes. Celebrate Christmas by starting the day with a glass of evervescent bubbles in your glass.
2. Sancerre Martin Marcel 'La Chenaye' – The Starter White
Sancerre lies on the left bank of the Loire, opposite Pouilly Fume. Its an appellation world renowned for producing some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc. The 2018 Sancerre La Chenaye Marcel Martin is an archetypal Sancerre. Bright, vibrant, aromatic and complex, gooseberries and citrus lead the way with a distinctive minerality.
3. Chablis La Chablisienne– The Main Course White
"A dry and brisk wine, typical of Chablis. Brilliant yellow-green colour with green reflections. On the nose mineral and complex aromas are reminiscent of lemon and white flower, together with vegetal hints such as asparagus or artichoke and marine notes. On the palate, the first impression is clear-cut and sharp. Long on the aftertaste, with fruity as well as mineral flavours; becomes slightly honey-scented when the wine is more evolved". Classic structured white wine – I could think of little more apt, than Chablis with Christmas Dinner.
4. Chateau Magnan Saint Emilion Grand Cru – The Starter Red
The history of Magnan la Gaffelière dates back to 1777, when its owner who was then a cooper at La Gaffelière used to sell his wine to Horeau Beylot, a wine dealer in Libourne. Today the estate covers 10 hectares in Saint-Emilion, located on gentle sandy slopes and at the foot of these slopes. The dominance of the Merlot in this blend is very apparent in the nose of the wine, which shows lush cherry notes. In the mouth, the wine is smooth and elegant, with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc bringing structure. wine has the potential to elevate the Christmas Dinner all on its own. Just add great company and great food.
5. Bodegas Navajas 'Casa Marques' Rioja Reserva - The Main Course Red
One of the finest examples of Rioja Reserva available, truly. it boasts a more full-bodied style with layer upon layer of fruit and sweet spice. This is rich and creamy with vanilla and dark bramble fruit. Good structure and just softened tannins from its 5 years bottle age. it's more concentrated than the traditional style. It can truly be enjoyed with or without food, but this case is so special that this wine would fit in anywhere.
6. Croft Late Bottled Vintage Port – The Cheeseboard
Croft was developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready to drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption.
The wines used to blend Croft were drawn from a reserve of some of the best full bodied red ports, produced at this harvest, from grapes grown on Croft’ s own vineyard, Quinta da Roêda, and other top properties in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior areas. These wines were aged in wood and then blended after six years. The blending process ensures that the wine is balanced and complete and that there is continuity of style in relation to previous Croft Ports
Enjoy it with cheese or good friends. For the richer wine loving people in your house for Christmas, this is a port they’ll love.
From all the team at WineOnline.ie we wish you a very Happy Christmas. It has been our pleasure picking and selecting these wines for you to enjoy with your friends and family and we hope you enjoy them all.
