Wine Christmas gift tips

Maybe you want to find a good wine to offer as a Christmas gift. Or you just want a good wine with your Christmas meal. Here are some suggestions that we recently tasted.

  • Barolo Albe, G.D. Vajra ,Piemonte, Italy, approx 20 euro. Brilliant Barolo with a good balance, aromas of red berries and plums and perfect tannins.
  • Terredora Di Paolo, Aglianico Campania IGT, Italy, approx. 12 euro. Great wine from southern Italy. Aglianico is a favourite variety. Full-bodied and structured.
  • Bad Boy, Bordeaux, approx 25 euro. A non-traditional Bordeaux made by ex-bad boy of Saint Emilion, Jean Luc Thunevin.
  • Les Fontanilles , Languedoc-Roussillon, Minervois, Anne Gros Jean Paul Tollot, approx 20 euro. Typical Languedoc aromas of wild thyme and rosemary and some peppery notes. And elegance.
  • Chateau Maris Les Planels Syrah 2011, Minervois La Livinière, Languedoc, approx 20 euro. Organic estate owned by Englishman Robert Eden. Syrah aromas and good concentration.
  • Vacqueyras Garrigues 2013, Domaine Montirius, southern Rhône Valley, approx 20 euro. Pure fruit, freshness and a long taste from this excellent biodynamic estate.


  • Domaine Cauhapé Sève d’Automne, 2012, Jurançon Sec, approx 20 euro. Intense and complex aromas of honey and dried fruit. Powerful, totally dry. Excellent wine.
