There is still time for Christmas but it is an excellent time to stock up on drinks before they go too pricey. The wines for Christmas are an excellent option to accompany lunches and dinners and the truth is that we can currently find a large number of proposals that will make very interesting their pairing with the different dishes that are usually consumed at Christmas.
Ideal wines to consume
We start with a red with character, a Gran Reserva made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This is the Grand Vin of the Chateau Lesparre Tinto Gran Reserva 2013, a Bordeaux with a lot of quality, aging and different steps for wood, which provides a great number of nuances. Its price, approximately 8 euros.
For those people who like white wines and like seafood and fish pairing as well as some rice and soft cheeses, they will find in Sinus a Ribeiro very elegant and intense. It has pale yellow color, fresh and fruity with an approximate price of 4 euros.
For lovers of the Rioja Crianza, Darmadt is one of the surprises of this year. It is a 100% Tempranillo red wine with a bright cherry color, with a fine aroma and light rises of red fruits and vanilla. It has a long and persistent taste, making this wine of approximately € 5.25 a safe bet.
For Ribera del Duero lovers, you have to take into account 12 Linajes Reserva, a red aged for 24 months in a cellar in French and American oak barrels. It has cherry red color and aromas of red fruit, greedy texture, wide and touches of ripe tannins and a good body. Its price is a little more expensive than the previous ones, around 20 euros.
