The rich, premium red joins a line-up of six Magnum-sized bottles for the festive season

There’s nothing worse than pouring glasses for guests to find that halfway around the table, the bottle is already empty. To ensure there’s enough for everyone this festive season, Asda is introducing six show-stopping Magnums, including the award-winning Châteauneuf Du Pape for £24.00.

Historically reserved for The Pope and French royalty, shoppers can drink like a King this Christmas with the indulgent, quality red – perfect for sipping with a turkey and all the trimmings.

Now available in a 1.5L bottle – pouring up to 12 glasses – the internationally-acclaimed wine comes to just £2.00 per glass, making it the perfect choice for a luxury Christmas without the price tag.

Stuart Dolby, Asda Wine Buyer, comments: “When it comes to Christmas, bigger is always better. This year, our shoppers can add a little extra sparkle to the table with six affordable, quality Magnums, including the grand Châteauneuf Du Pape – perfect to impress guests and quench the nation’s thirst for great vino.

“With intense spice and leather aromas, and hints of strawberry, raspberry and liquorice, our big bottle of red is perfect for a cold, crisp winter night or as a gift for the discerning drinker. Plucked from vines in the Southern Rhone Valley, the wine provides a sip of extravagance without the bank-busting price tag."

Alongside the Châteauneuf du Pape, Asda’s Magnums come in two fruity reds, an award-winning prosecco, an elegant sparkling rosé and a crisp Champagne – all perfect centerpieces for any Christmas party.
