JANE MACQUITTY picks out a 'classy tipple' or two for Christmas, and majors on Burgundy. Her star white is the 2004 Saint-Aubin, La Prince from Hubert Lamy (15.95; Berry Bros & Rudd) which is 'overflowing with sweet, ripe, smoky, hazelnut-charged fruit'. Her top red is the 2004 Rully, En Guesnes from Vincent Dureuil-Janthial (16.99; Wimbledon Wine) - 'Blow your socks off with this gorgeous Burgundy from a hugely talented young producer,' she says. Other recommendations include 2004 Howard Park Chardonnay, Western Australia, (14.15; Bibendum) and the 'delectable, fine, floral and faintly marzipan-redolent' 1996 Quinta do Crasto Vintage Port, Portugal (19.99; Sainsbury's).
