Far be it for me to tread on Dominic Regan’s toes when it comes to wine recommendations, but with the approach of Christmas I thought I would make a few drink suggestions for the festive season.

My first is Baron De Ley Reserva Rioja.

This normally retails at £12.49 a bottle from Waitrose/Ocado. However, Costco, of all places, sells this at £57.74 for 6 bottles including delivery (working out at just £9.62 a bottle). The price drops to £9.17 in the unlikely event you are also a Costco cardholder.

The description given is:

“A traditionally styled Rioja, aged for 20 months in mainly new American oak casks, this wine displays a red ruby colour with a medium-high intensity. On the nose, a remarkably powerful blend of fruit, coconut and toffee which evolves into seductive nuances of spices and Mediterranean bush.”

“Mediterranean bush”? I wouldn’t know about any of that but it is jolly tasty. Best decanted before serving and highly recommend with Christmas lunch.

    There are highly-recommended alternatives. See these reviews: http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B0041WAY1I/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt_sr_5?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addFiveStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

    Clearly a Grade A Rioja is not warranted for this simple matter and Grade D Rioja
    would suffice, offer Grade D only.

    A saving of just 23%? Call yourself a cost draftsman?
