If you're not an 'insta influencer' who can persuade a Five Star resort in Dubai to put you and your friends up for the whole of January gratis in return for the odd poolside selfie, your next best option for enjoying this chilly month is to invest in this case and find a pal with an empty cottage in the countryside. Referencing some well-heeled wines from Champagne, the Rhône, Loire, Alsace, Burgundy and Provence, it's time for long walks, jolly dinners and competitive charades - make your own fun!

This mixed case contains two bottles each of:

SPARKLING WHITE:
Yapp Champagne: Brut NV

WHITE:
Sancerre: Domaine André Vatan 'Les Perriers' Blanc 2020
Alsace: Léon Beyer 'Réserve Personnelle' Pinot Gris 2017
"This smells so good... Fresh peach juice and crab-apple jelly. It could only be Alsace PG! Yum, yum, yum. Like a love bite of warm whole-wheat seedy oat-bread toast smeared with apple jelly and a dab of almond butter. Ripe, ripe apples. Ripe, ripe pears. A very fine sliver of herbs. Oyster mushrooms. It tastes, momentarily, as if there could be some residual sugar there, but then the finish tastes totally dry and textured. Clever wine. Drink 2020 - 2025. 17/20."

RED:
Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Domaine du Père Caboche Rouge 2020
"This cuvée is a year-in, year-out classic, complex wine, and the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape doesn't appear to break that trend. Lots of ripe cherry, peppery herbs, toasted nut, and meaty notes define the bouquet, and it's medium-bodied, with a supple, elegant texture, light tannins, and a great finish. 90-92/100."

Vosne Romanée: Domaine Misset-Cheron 'Les Barreaux' 2014
Château Simone Rouge 2018

This mixed case includes

2 x Yapp Champagne£0.00

Our popular own label 'Yapp' Champagne, which is made from a blend of 50% Pinot Meunier and 25% each of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It is a fresh, light, uplifting wine that has a fine expression of fruit and does not demand any food accompaniment.

2 x Sancerre: Domaine André Vatan 'Les Perriers' Blanc 2020£0.00

Sancerre 'Les Perriers' from André Vatan is a benchmark white Sancerre wine - pure Sauvignon Blanc, with a classic elderflower bouquet and a lean, zesty palate.

It's the Sancerre 'de choix' of many a Michelin-starred restaurant, so if you'd like to experience 'best in class', this is your man.

2 x Alsace: Léon Beyer 'Réserve Personnelle' Pinot Gris 2017£0.00

Another 'aromatic' variety for which Alsace is rightly revered, this full-bodied Pinot Gris exhibits pear aromas and deft, smoky flavours.

2 x Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Domaine du Père Caboche Rouge 2020£0.00

"This cuvée is a year-in, year-out classic, complex wine, and the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape doesn't appear to break that trend. Lots of ripe cherry, peppery herbs, toasted nut, and meaty notes define the bouquet, and it's medium-bodied, with a supple, elegant texture, light tannins, and a great finish. 90-92/100."

2 x Vosne Romanée: Domaine Misset-Cheron 'Les Barreaux' 2014£0.00

'Les Barreaux' is a prime village-level lieu-dit of Vosne Romanée that sits on north-east facing slopes in a combe directly above the Grand Cru of Richebourg and the legendary Premier Cru Cros Parentoux. The perfumed and elegant wines of this appellation are the greatest expression of Pinot Noir in the world.

2 x Château Simone Rouge 2018£0.00

Château Simone Rouge - a rare unreconstructed historical gem of a wine. Complex 'cigar box', sandalwood and sous bois aromas precede a rich, evolved palate with some mushroom and resinous notes - it is often mistaken for top-quality Bordeaux. It merits decanting, readily supports a decade's bottle-age, and will make a perfect foil to a garlic-studded gigot d'agneau or grilled rib of beef.
