Which Champagne shall I choose for Christmas?

Select delicious Champagnes to start with and feel confident that they will go down well with either Chicken, Turkey, Beef or Vegetarian or Vegan foods and if you want to serve Champagne throughout the meal for Christmas this year.

Roast Chicken

The key advice is always to consider the accompanying sauce. A gravy made from roasting the bones will work best with something deep, rich and nutty. Krug has all of this in spades. Perhaps the sauce is more creamy: this is where a luxurious Blanc des Blancs will fit best. Dom Ruinart or Frerejean Frères are both perfect choices.

Roast Turkey

Roast Turkey with cranberry sauce calls for a Champagne that has ample fruit to complement it, but don't forget all the side dishes. We would recommend something that is complex as well as fruity, and our choice would be Louis Roederer Collection 242 (preferably from magnum). Laurent-Perrier's famous rosé has so much red fruit character, it could almost mimic the cranberry sauce and be a real winner at the Christmas dinner table.

Roast Beef or Lamb

Traditionally paired with red wines, this would work brilliantly with a Blanc des Noirs - do not miss out on Eric Rodez's Brut Nature version. It is very much a gastronomic Champagne and has enough power for roasted red meat.

Vegetarian Roast

Perhaps based around squash, pumpkin or root vegetables, a 'veggie roast' calls for a wine that has impactful fruit. Enjoy the foodie Besserat de Bellefon for its exoticism or try Palmer & Co for its panoply of fleshy stone fruits.

A more savoury meal, based on mushrooms or truffle (or both), is ideal territory for a Champagne that highlight's the serious side of Pinot Noir: Bollinger PN TX17 does this brilliantly.


If 'Fruits de la Mer' is the theme of your festive meal, then it is hard to go wrong with Champagne. Cleaner styles, particularly crisp Blanc des Blancs, work tremendously well with cold shellfish and crustacea. Henriot or Laurent Perrier's bone-dry Blanc des Blancs are great options. Smoked salmon will take something with a little more breadth of flavour. Bollinger Grande Année 2014 would be magical with smoked salmon blinis. Roasted seafood, perhaps with a decadently buttery sauce, is the ideal excuse to drink the very special, beautifully rich, Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas celebration with hopefully many moments to enjoy a glass or two of Champagne!
