Festive wine recommendations from UK press

Many of the wine writers in the UK press have switched their attention to wines for the festive period.

UK Press wine recommendationsMatthew Jukes reveals his top 10 bubblies of the season, including a Welsh sparkling wine which he describes as “one of the most beautiful of this year’s sparklers”.

While in the Financial Times Jancis Robinson MW is publishing her top 100 festive wines. Part two, which looks at “well-bred reds” has just been published and includes wines that have “generally scored 17/20” in her tastings.

Some writers have made their recommendations for wines to drink with a Christmas turkey, both Fiona Beckett in the Guardian and Susy Atkins in the Daily Telegraph warn against picking a show-off wine that does not go with your dinner. But both suggest big wines that they say will work with turkey, with Beckett recommending a wine that will help you to “provoke the relatives, rather than pandering to them”.
