The Clos19 Guide to Choosing the Perfect Christmas Gift
Nothing says festive celebration like a fine bottle. Whether you’re looking for champagne, wine or spirits for a serious collector or just a friend or family member with great taste, there’s something to suit all in our fabulous Christmas gift list.
For the Cocktail Aficionado
Know someone with a well-stocked home bar who loves to make cocktails? The Hennessy Oh So Classic Cocktails Manhattan Gift Set was made for them. While your loved one will no doubt know that a classic Manhattan cocktail combines whiskey, sweet vermouth and bitters, they might not have encountered the Hennessy version, which uses cognac instead of whiskey.
For the Consummate Host
We all know someone who can put together an elegant meal at the drop of a hat – and always with a fine wine to match. They are sure to appreciate an extra bottle for their collection, and Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2020 fits the bill. The 2020 vintage is tipped as the estate's best yet, showcasing vibrant fruits balanced by Cloudy Bay’s distinctive freshness.
For the Gourmand
For those with a taste for fine foods and equally fine champagne, Krug Grand Cuvée 168éme Éditionticks all the boxes. This versatile champagne was composed around the 2012 harvest and has had over eight years to mature, gaining exceptional freshness and delectable flavours. It pairs beautifully with rich foods such as Comté cheese and truffles – the kind you’re likely to encounter around Christmas time.
For the Night Owl
If the person you’re buying for loves nothing more than sharing stories and clinking glasses into the night, look no further than the Hennessy Festive Sharing Set. Comprising a bottle of Hennessy V.S and two Hennessy glasses, this gift is perfect for a Christmas by the fireside.
For the Serious Collector
Help that extra-special person in your life add to their collection with a bottle of Dom Pérignon 2010. After a decade in the cellars this champagne has developed aromas of tropical fruit and has sappy, peppery and spicy flavours with energetic bubbles.
For the Socialite
This year has been particularly tough, so the promise of a bright new year with Moët & Chandon Tie Your Wish Limited Edition champagne will be appreciated even more.
For the Aesthete
This gorgeous limited edition is a collaboration between Veuve Clicquot and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. An ideal gift for art lovers, the label of La Grande Dame 2012 has been reimagined with Kusama’s distinctive polka dots, which symbolize the vibrant sparkle of champagne bubbles.
