Susy Atkins' festive food and wine matching guide

To accompany the classic main: ‘Richer whites from hotter climates are best to tackle a rich roast turkey and all the trimmings – wimpish whites need not apply!'

‘Domaine Jones Blanc Grenache Gris 2014, Côtes Catalanes, France (£13.50, The Wine Society)

'Plump greengages, lime peel and a waft of herbs mark out this distinctive dry white. Its rounded, fuller finish works well with turkey.’

Grenache Gris - Scotland on Sunday

'This wine centres on spicy quince and greengage fruit with herbal depth, gentle acidity and that savoury mineral texture that southern France does so well.'

La Perle Rare Blanc 2014 - Manchester Evening News

'To say that I enjoyed this wine would be an understatement of vast proportions. It's certainly the most accomplished wine I have ever tasted made from Grenache Gris. Grenache Gris and Blanc can have a tendency to produce fat wines whose lack of acidity can make them taste less impressive with each taste. This wine however suffers from no blowsiness despite its immense power. Seductive and aromatic, there's a floral nose infused by fennel and tempered by a buttery lick of oak. The palate is slightly waxy with a wholesome mouthful of soft ripe pear and candied lemon. It's all brought into shape by slaking acidity. A title-winning effort.'

Les Perles Carignan - Scotland on Sunday

' In this premium Carignan the minerality acquires suggestions of slate and embellishes the wine's dense, bramble fruit with cocoa components that add complexity to this stylish part of a quartet of distinctive and impressive wines.' 

Thanks so much to Brian for this lovely write up on Les Perles Carignan from our 100 year old vines.
