Red Wine

If your family like red wine with Christmas dinner, we are suggesting our favourite French Pinot Noir, Les Argelieres.

This Pinot Noir is a soft fruity red, with a silky palate. The grape is light enough as so to not overwhelm the Turkey. The fruit character and acidity work amazingly well here. It does the same job as cranberry sauce; just in a glass, with alcohol.

Glossy garnet red in the glass, on the nose there are aromas of raspberry and cherry, with subtle smoky and peppery hints. Fruity, elegant, and well-balanced on the palate, with a silky long finish.

White Wine

Our white wine Christmas dinner suggestion perfectly matches to the Turkey and trimmings. Les Argelieres Chardonnay has enough weight to go up against some of the stronger flavours which traditionally accompany the Christmas dinner, but it is still light enough to compliment the big bird.

Although it's more traditional to serve Chardonnay from Northern France, we love this one from the Languedoc, with its tropical fruit. Les Argelieres Chardonnay  demonstrates how well the noble grape can blend and fuse with toasty oak to express the buttery, golden apple, and creamy character that this grape is known for.
