Decanter’s panel found ‘notes of roasted nuts, caramel and cinnamon’ in Graham’s 10-Year-Old Tawny in their recent panel tasting. Treat any Port lover to a miniature serving, the perfect size to fit in any stocking.
An ideal treat, these Moët & Chandon crackers come with a 200ml bottle of Moët inside – choose from either the Brut NV or Rosé NV. Have a luxurious Christmas dinner table with one for each guest!
For the ultimate secret Santa gift, snap up these Champagne-themed biscuits from Biscuiteers.
For any cocktail fan out there – this gift set contains everything you need for a perfect sparkling wine cocktail: a mini sparkling wine (including Prosecco, Moët & Chandon Champagne or Anna de Codorniu Cava), a choice of liqueur, bursting bubbles and sparkling shimmer.
Liven up any Christmas party with a round of ‘Prosecco Pong’ – the sparkling wine version of the much-loved classic. Comes with 12 plastic coup style glasses and three plastic balls.
No one could be disappointed to receive a box of these pink Champagne truffles, tasting of Champagne and strawberries. If you want to go for something slightly different, try their limited edition Sipsmith gin infused truffles instead.
This year Penfolds released this limited edition gift set with the Saint-Louis crystal decanter – who are one of the oldest glassmakers in the world. It comes with a bottle of Grange 2013, which John Stimpfig called in his tasting notes a ‘big, flamboyant and hedonistic’ wine.
The perfect gift for anyone with a cellar full of fine wine; a Coravin, allowing you to enjoy wine by the glass without opening the whole bottle. Choose from silver, black, red, gold or rose gold.
