TWO of the best wines to elevate your Christmas dinner are classics from France. They are not only very reliable and extremely delicious but they also look impressive when you pop the cork and you’ll get that wow factor.

The Classic Christmas dinner has a lot of rich and competing flavours from ham with cloves to turkey filled with herb stuffing and brussels sprouts with cranberry sauce. The best wines to compliment all these flavours are fruit-forward, medium bodied reds or rich white wines.

Sticking with the classics and old favourites, two of the best come from France: Macon from Burgundy offers great value for white wine lovers and a rich and full-bodied Rhone for red wine drinkers.

Terres Secrets, Macon Verze, Croix Jarrier €19.80

Classic white Burgundy and a must for Chardonnay lovers. Generous creamy stone fruit aromas supported by concentrated citrus freshness. A rich mouthful, creamy and textural. The only problem is that you will need a second bottle in the fridge!

Yves Cuilleron Crozes Hermitage ‘Laya’ €31.50

An instantly enticing wine, the vibrant and intense aromas draw you straight in. Brilliant value for money and a must for anyone who likes Chateauneuf du Pape but without the price tag. Layered flavours of fruit, herbs, spice and minerality. Yummy!
