Why offer a bottle of wine as a Christmas gift is a great idea
Every year, you run out of time to buy a Christmas gift. More precisely, you ran out of time because you procrastinated. And you procrastinated because you ran out of ideas in the first place. The thought process for finding a Christmas gift is a pain to our brain. It is really difficult to find an original present that will please your recipient every year. Especially that most people can buy they like themselves. And the one they cannot afford to buy themselves, you cannot afford it for them either. That’s why choose to offer a bottle of French wine for Christmas this year. It’s elegant, it’s original and your recipient will drink it for sure. Honestly, on average, how many Christmas parties or dinners do you have to attend? And how many bottles of wine do you consume every Christmas? A lot. am I wrong? Some people like to offer chocolate and sweets for the festivities at the end of the year but there usually already too much sweet stuff on the table. And you never have too much wine because you can keep it and it won’t spoil. At least, you can keep it a few months in the fridge even if you don’t have a wine cellar.
What should you pair your wine with Christmas dinner dishes? Well, there is no golden rules and wine pairing with food is very subjective. But people tend to eat a lot of meat with heavy sauces for Christmas. And a good pairing would be to open a bottle of Bordeaux wine. The reason behind is that Bordeaux wine tends to be full-bodied and will resist to the overwhelming amount of flavour found in Christmas recipes. I personally prefer to drink wine after eating or before, not during my meal. Or at least, I would have a sip of water to clean my mouth and then drink to enjoy my glass of wine.
