An opulent and classic case of wines for your Christmas table:
Champagne Guy Mea, Premier Cru Champagne - If you're having a Champagne breakfast, it ought to be premier cru, this is deliciously rich biscuity Champagne that wouldn't be half bad with some toast and smoked salmon.
Samuel Billaud Grand Terroirs Chablis - Our in-house Chablis of choice since opening, Samuel Billaud makes a beautiful Chablis with all of the crisp, citrussy, chalky style that you would expect, but also a lovely breadth of texture, very moreish.
Lopez de Heredia, Vina Tondonia Magnum (2009 vintage) - Because you're in it for the long haul, so why open two bottles when one will do just as well. This is a famously exceptional bottle or Rioja, deep with red fruit and spice, and layers of savoury, earthy loveliness. (We may have to swap in two single-size bottles for long distance deliveries depending on location).
Quinta do Vale Meao 10 year old tawny - A wonderful port that is aged in the Douro Valley (rather than on Portugal's west coast). This accelerates the ageing process and produces a wonderfully deep and savoury style of tawny port.
Chateau Climens half bottle (2003 vintage) - Awesome Sauternes from Barsac, tropical and astonishingly fresh considering it's age. Perfect for desserts and blue cheese.
