Our Christmas tasting took place 4 December. Presenters were asked to consider something really special for the occasion. Here were their selections to accompany festive food:
Lidl’s Bissinger Premier Cru Champagne, £16.99. The Lidl Master of Wine gives it an Outstanding rating of 90. A glass of this would go well with canapés and smoked salmon blinis
Sancerre, £13.50 from Asda but with 25% off so not too sinful!
Muga White Rioja, available from Majestic at £9.49 with a mixed case of six.
Taste the Difference Beaujolais Villages Coteaux Granitiques currently on offer at Sainsbury’s for £8.00 reduced from £9.50.
Chateau Musar, Levantine, Bekka Valley, 2018 Lebanon, £18 from Marks and Spencer.
