Thu.29.Nov.2012 UTC

Picking the perfect wine for your Christmas Day festivities can be a tall order, especially if you’re keen to match your salmon blinis to a celebratory bubbly, your turkey with a mouthwatering red or white and your plum pudding with a delicious dessert wine.

But Christmas Day wine shopping doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive and with the right advice, can actually be incredibly satisfying, especially when you wow your family with a fantastic drop as they tuck into their Christmas dinner.

World Champion Sommelier and French wine superstar Gerard Basset OBE has years of experience when it comes to wine and food matching and he’s on hand this Christmas to help you pick the perfect bottle (or two) for the big day.
