Team db reveal their Christmas Day drinks

21st December, 2012 by Lucy Shaw - This article is over multiple pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6

With Christmas just a shake of a reindeer’s bell away, at the db office, thoughts have turned to the all-important conundrum of what to crack open on Christmas Day.

Coming but once a year, Christmas Day offers the perfect excuse to dust off that old bottle you’ve been saving for years. It’s an occasion that demands celebratory wines – something a little more special than your midweek Malbec.

So we’ve put our heads together and come up with a wine or spirit that we’ll each be opening on Christmas Day, and what we’d be drinking if money were no object.

We’re keen to hear from you, dear readers, about what you’ll be imbibing on the 25th, so let us know your Christmas picks in the comment box below. This is our final day in the office until January 2, so we wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Cheers!

  1. A good value Bordeaux this Christmas. Gloria 2007. Don’t have to feel guilty about opening plenty of bottles and it’s drinking well, especially with 2-3 hours in a decanter.
