Red Wine  »  Xmas Reds

We are now in a season not renowned for its calorific restraint. Food and wine flow with abandon, cold meals following hot, whilst all the while central heating and/or a roaring hearth bathe one in equatorial temperatures that counterpoint the nip of Jack Frost, our companion on restorative post-prandial walks.

All-in-all, it’s a tricky period for wine planning. In truth, one needs a broad spectrum of wines and not simply the weighty reds and port that are so often recommended at Yuletide.

So, herewith a selection of Caspar's red wine recommendations: bottles that we’ll be uncorking over the Christmas break, something suitable for every festive scenario. (More will be added throughout the week.)
