Old World Classics for Christmas!
Buy 2 for AED 170
Chapoutier Les Meysonniers Hermitage AED 99
Few people seem to be able to make classical Hermitage anymore. This is full bodied yet it never feels flabby, it’s focused and straight to the point. There’s spice, there’s leather, cloves, licorice and red currant fruits and of course there is that unmistakable pepper character that all good Syrah should have.

Dourthe Numéro 1 Bordeaux Blanc AED 68
This is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle and is perfect as an aperitif.

Moreau Petit Chablis AED 72
Christmas isn’t quite the same unless you have a bottle of Chablis to celebrate with. Lean, light and very zippy, this would be a great match with crustaceans.
Food – Omani lobster Drink – Drink now
Drouhin Laforet Bourgogne Blanc AED 70
In a world full of the big flavours of new world Chardonnay it is sometimes a pleasure to return to Chardonnay’s birthplace – Burgundy – and enjoy it in its original form – elegant, reserved and restrained.

Great with Christmas Lunch
Torres Ibericos Rioja Crianza AED 66
Torres wines seem to offer something quite different from your average Spanish plonk. A modern interpretation of a favourite classic, this has all the brilliance of a wine estate focused on making the very best wines that they can.
Food – Roast pork with apple sauce Drink – 3-6 years
Torres Gran Vina Sol Chardonnay AED 52
A Chardonnay that is very different in style to the two French ones above. This is a trifle more bold, a touch more gutsy but equally as delicious.
Food – Porcini risotto Drink – 2-4 years
