This is the perfect time to start thinking about wines for the festive season so I have picked out a few favourites that I will be stocking up on.

As a house red and white to carry you through to January, I can highly recommend the two below.

Domaine Duffour ( €11.49 down to €8.99 ) is an excellent Sauvignon style white from a quality focused, family owned Domaine in Gascony. Herby, zesty and with great fruit concentration this delicious aromatic white, is now one of the best from the region.

Cuvée Luna ( €16.49 down to €9.99 ) is a superb cuvée from legendary champion of organic and biodynamic winemaking, Borie de Maurel. Owner/winemaker Michel Escande has created this stunning, richly concentrated red especially for O'Briens.

Both of these will match a wide range of foods but work equally well on their own.

For Christmas day itself, I will be going with the classics starting with Beaumont des Crayères Grande Réserve Champagne ( €36.99 down to €31.49 ) this is a continual gold medal winner and highly rated Champagne. This is a rock solid Champagne that puts all those familiar brands €10+ above it to shame!

To follow I will be going with the Domaine de Prehy Chablis ( €18.99 down to €15.99 ) Owned and run by legendary Chablis name Jean Marc Brocard. A single estate Chablis, estate grown and bottled; perfect Chablis with its acidity, fruit and body all in harmony.

To finish I have chosen the Chateau de Fleurie ( €19.49 down to €15.99 ) Made from a single 13 hectare estate covering some of the best terroir in Fleurie, this is one of the finest Cru's in the region. A complex, Burgundian Fleurie this is a serious cut above just about every other Fleurie on the market - a must try wine.
