Begin the festivities with a bottle of Pierre Baillette 'Le Village', a micro-domaine Grower Champagne with fabulous salinity and grip from the chalky soils in Trois-Puits, just south of Reims.
Since taking over his father's estate, Romaric Chavy has wasted no time in staking a claim as one of Burgundy’s next winemaking stars. ‘Les Femelottes’ – from a 40-year-old, single vineyard plot lying within Puligny-Montrachet – is rounded and classy.
Domaine Belargus is redefining the historic vineyards of the Loire Valley with extraordinary, terroir-focused Chenin Blanc. A dry, late-harvest Chenin from the Quarts de Chaume is 'Rouères' is intense and silky, with unending length.
You probably won't find a better introduction to Greece's most important red grape variety than Kostis Dalamara's Naoussa Xinomavro. All red cherry, savoury black olive and tomato leaf, and supported by firm, fresh tannins, it's like a fine Greek Nebbiolo.
Star sommelier Terry Kandylis – a.k.a Bendito Destino – is fast establishing himself as one of Ribera del Duero’s most ambitious new winemaking talents. His Field Blend offers smoky dark fruit and velvety tannins, as well as serious ageing potential.
Sauternes First Growth Château Suduiraut’s vineyards border those of Yquem. The 2010 offers a spicy stone fruit character alongside vibrant acidity and crystal-like transparency.
