Magnums can provide excellent value for money, as well as adding impact to your dinner table.
Luis Cañas Crianza 2010 magnum
Ann says: "This ruby red wine is clean on the palate with hints of red cherries and raspberries. It will pair perfectly with meats and poultry, making it perfect for the Christmas lunch table. It will also work well with spicy foods and rich winter stews. A beautiful wine by an accomplished winemaker that won't disappoint you or your guests."
Priced at £24 a bottle
'Les Coteaux Schisteux', Séguret Côtes du Rhône magnum
Ann comments: "This is an impressive Seguret and is about as good as wien from the Côtes du Rhône-Villages gets! It has a large proportion of Grenache, which means it is a paler wine that you might expect but the nose is just as plush and opulent as you would hope for with layers of exotic spice, cracked black pepper and crushed vanillin. The palate is smooth but has plenty of depth and flavour. The finish is lengthy, subtle and fine. A superb wine."

Marqués de Cáceres Tinto Crianza, Rioja 2009 magnum
Ann comments: "These wines are consistently good. After 15 months in oak, the ripe fruit aroma of this Crianza provides a claret-like palate of clean fruit, supple tannins and balanced acidity. It will pair well with red meats and rich poultry dishes."
Priced at £21 a bottle
