What do we want from a perfect Christmas wine? A whole lot, as it turns out.

There’s the wine to have on hand as your “house pour” for when unexpected visitors pop in for that quick hello that goes on for at least a second glass (“Ah, you will”), and then there’s the wine to save for the most intimate holiday gatherings, to savour as it deserves.
