Wine makes the most wonderful gift at Christmas time, you really can't go wrong with a bottle of something delicious when you're stuck for what else to get. The trickiest part is picking one they're really going to love. David has put his Santa hat on and got together some ideas to help you choose something special even for the fussiest of family members.
A sumptuous white, perfect for drinking right now. Rich with lots of texture and length.
This magnum from the Simonsig estate is a delicious complex red, made up from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The presentation box makes it an even more impressive gift.
Fruity, supple and easy to drink. This Rioja is fabulous at Christmas: loaded with spicy fruit and toasty vanilla oak.
Versatile, this rich Riesling pairs well with desserts and cheese and so makes a lovely gift for those whom Christmas is all in the pudding.
If you're looking for something special, this 2010 Châteauneuf-du-pape is a real treat.
Smooth with a balance of mature fruit and spice.
A must-have for Christmas day! This is what we drink in my house. Nutty with a taste that just goes on.
Succulent Bordeaux from the superb 2016 vintage. Lovely now, but for the patient collector, it will easily keep 10 years too.
It's surprising to find an English wine just this good, it's what I'd recommend with your Christmas day roast. Soft and light, everyone will enjoy it!

The ageing of this white has given it some beautiful flavours for those who like something a bit more rich and complex than a straightforward Chardonnay - and it's from a fabulous historic vineyard. (Magnums also available)
