Jancis Robinson’s wine for the festive season

A comprehensive guide to the best champagnes, whites, reds, sweet and strong wines

‘There are times when a half bottle of Champagne is just the job, and what better than Bollinger’ 

‘An arabesque of a wine, very different from vintage port. Long and luscious but not excessively sweet’

‘Too sweet for burgundy but so much more interesting than the average Kiwi Pinot. Glorious’

‘If this brilliant wine were made anywhere else, it would cost twice as much. What a treat’
