Make this Christmas Day the best one yet with Vinoteca’s superb six-bottle wine case taking you through the 25th December in style. Open your gifts first thing whilst sipping on a stunning Champagne Blanc De Noirs, uncork the light Pinot Blanc 1er Cru with your smoked salmon starter and enjoy the main event – turkey dinner with all the trimmings – with a ripe and juicy IGP d’Oc Chardonnay. End the evening at the cheeseboard with a sweet digestif, the Banyuls ‘Galateo’ 2014.
Handpicked by Vinoteca founders Brett Woonton and Charlie Young, the Christmas Day wine case is just £99.50 – the grapest present for the wine lover in your life! The case includes:
Champagne Blanc De Noirs ‘Cuvee Speciale’ NV — Renard Barnier, Villevenard, France
Champagne’s red grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier), aged for three years before release. Rich and intense.
Pinot Blanc 1er Cru Cotes de Grevenmacher 2014 — Domaines Vinsmoselle, Moselle, Luxembourg
Lovely Pinot Blanc from cru vineyards. Notes of pear and spice with great acidity. Delicious with smoked salmon or crab.
IGP d’Oc Chardonnay 2015 — Filature, Languedoc, France
Old vine Chardonnay from a vineyard near the seaside town of Meze. Lemon, apple and melon, with smatterings of honey & oats. Perfect with turkey and all the trimmings.
Ribera del Duero ‘Velvety’ 2015 — Bodega Los Matucos, Castilla y Leon, Spain
Tempranillo aged for 6 months in oak. Silky (as the name suggests), dark cherry cookies and rose oil-infused freshness.
Works well rib of beef.
Syrah 2016 — Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Light, spicy Syrah with blackberry, black pepper and raspberry. A splash of Viognier adds aroma and softens the tannins.
Tastes great with Beef Wellington
Banyuls ‘Galateo’ 2014 — Coume de Mas, Roussillon, France
Sweet, dark raspberries with vibrancy, sweet tannins and concentration in buckets. Heaven with dark chocolate or a cheeseboard.
