In The Observer David Williams also gave readers his Christmas selection, with “two bargains for the festive period and one very special bottle for Christmas Day”.

This is his special bottle for Christmas Day, about which he wrote: “As ever in this part of the world, the top wines are built to last, and not at their best for a few years, but this second wine from the excellent Château Grand Puy Lacoste is, as they say, drinking beautifully now. Supple, fleshy and perfumed with blackcurrant and cedar, it’s a treat.”
