All I want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey: Bonnet Launois Champagne
Starting the big day with one of the greats, and we could only pair the very finest with the chart topper ‘All I want for Christmas is You’. Champagne is an absolute must-have tradition for Christmas morning. The Bonnet Launois is the best of the best, dry, crisp and as bubbly as Mariah Carey is when she gets her annual paycheque in from this song.
Feliz Navidad – José Feliciano: Larchago Rioja Crianza
Only a classic Rioja will do for this absolute festive Spanish banger. Much like the song, the Larchago matches the classic, yet fun and lively spirit of Feliz Navidad in flavour. Cocoa beans, cinnamon and gingerbread spice gives it a festive, expressive, and uplifting flavour. One for the Christmas dinner party!
Fairytale of New York – The Pogues: Anna Haugh Cabernet-Franc Syrah
This one’s a coming together of Irish greats, with The Pogues & Kirsty MacColl paired with proud Dubliner, Chef Anna Haugh’s Cabernet-Franc Syrah, for a magical combination. A youthful, yet deep red wine with blackcurrant and cherry flavours give it a strong character.
Sweet, dreamy, and full of festive fizz, both Wizard’s iconic song and the Bacio della Luna rosé have all three in common. With a glass of this in hand and Christmas hats on it’s impossible not to feel merry dancing along to a 70’s gem.
Last Christmas – Wham!: Lunadoro Vino Nobile Di Montepulicano
Everyone loves a bit of self-indulgence at Christmas, none more so than Wham! when they wrote ‘Last Christmas’. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect wine to accompany it in the Lunadoro Vino Nobile Di Montepulicano! Aged in Oak French barrels, it’s a dark ruby red with plum jam, chocolate and cigar notes, coupled with a little sweetness. It’ll steal your heart, so much so you definitely won’t want to give it away the next day…
White Christmas – Dean Martin: James Martin’s Chardonnay Marsanne: Turns out if your surname is ‘Martin’ you can cook up all sorts of things – from recipe books solely dedicated to butter, famous Christmas songs to now wines too. If you’re more of a fan of white for Christmas over red, we couldn’t recommend James Martin’s Chardonnay Marsanne enough. A little floral, a little fruity and you guessed it, it’s got a butter finish too.
