Tasting note

2023 Christmas wines

For this year’s Christmas, I picked four wines to pair with a down to earth broth fondue. For aperitif, we started with a champagne by Henri Giraud. From there we went to Burgundy, then Bordeaux, and ended up at the Saar in Germany. Originally, I’d chosen a 1996 Sauternes to wrap things up but we decided to keep that bottle for another time. 2026 Christmas, perhaps?

Pale lemon yellow. Open, medium-intensity bouquet of ripe yellow fruit: Lemon and apricot, with a herbal touch. There are also notes of butter and nuts. Finally, there’s a slight hint of smoke, but it’s very elegant. The taste and finish are of medium intensity, as well. Acidity is medium to high, very fresh and a good fit with the warmer fruit notes of the vintage. Still a very good village wine with structure and cellaring potential for some more years.

Drink through 2029.
