You’ve bought the turkey, wrapped the presents and hoisted up the tree. Now it’s time for the important stuff – the wine. With less than two weeks to go until the big day, UK win writers have been busy assessing the shelves so you don’t have to, coming up with their pick of the best wines on offer this festive season.

David Williams, writing for The Observer, kicks off this week’s list with a pick of wines from Majestic, including this “bargain” Portuguese white.

“Terra Pegoes Branco is light, easy-going, citrus-tangy – a handy party aperitif for under a fiver; Muscadet Pallet 2014 (£11.99, or £9.99 as part of a mixed case) is more serious, with a Chablis-like intensity of lemon, minerals, nuts and sourdough bread that shows the potential of this under-rated Loire region and is fine-tuned for festive first courses. For the roast bird, I’m going elsewhere for something a little richer: the multifaceted creamy, herby, orchard-fruity white Rhône gem Domaine Lombard Brézème Blanc 2015 (£19.50, Yapp Brothers).”

Price: £5.99, or £4.99 as part of a mixed case of six bottles, Majestic
