The Times recommends: A brace of Burgundy for Christmas


Having bagged Decanter’s Burgundy specialist of the year award for the second year in a row, it is fitting that our two wines selected for Jane MacQuitty’s The Times Top 100 Wines of Winter both hail from that celebrated region.

Chorey-bottleIf by any chance you are struggling for drinking inspiration for the upcoming festivities you could do a lot worse than listening to Ms MacQuitty and grabbing a case of each.

2013 Chorey-les-Beaune Pièce du Chapitre Monopole Tollot-Beaut
£123.00 per 6 IB
If nothing but the Côte d’Or will do, this is the bottle to buy. This is a deftly oaked, spicy red, with gorgeous rich, punchy, smoky, plum and creosote fruit.

2013 Montagny ler Cru Vieilles Vignes Stéphane Aladame
£199.00 per 12 inc VAT
A great-value white burgundy, made from a blend of four different premiers crus plots whose old vines are 40-80 years old, makes a glorious, verdant, grilled almond-stashed, festive food- friendly white.
