A fine treat for Christmas day, or a perfect gift for someone who really likes their wines. White Burgundy is just as much a part of Christmas as turkey and the tree, this Viré-Clessé has all the richness, flavour and elegance of a top name (think Meursault, Montrachet etc) at a much more attractive price. A great match for poultry or nut roasts which will really bring out the savoury side of this stunning white. Viña Ijalba were the first organic estate in Rioja, and this Reserva is lusciously full-bodied, with hallmark toasty vanilla and coconut notes from the long ageing in oak barrels. Great with rich dishes such as roast lamb and aubergine moussaka.
