A Taste of Spring

Posted on: March 28, 2019

Spring is officially here. The busy Christmas rush seems like yesterday and we are delighted not to have seen the blizzard conditions we experienced in March last year. Now, our attentions have turned toward Easter and what we are going to be drinking with friends and family. 



A FEW RECOMMENDATIONS……

In addition to the Meyer Fonne Cremant d’Alsace, we added to our list early last year, we have two new Cremants : the extremely classy Domaine de la Verpaille Cremant de Bourgogne and the delicously pinktastic de Chanceny Cremant de Loire. Cremant has always been a fantastic alternative to Champagne due to the same winemaking process – and so much cheaper – we love that each of these Cremants brings something different to the table with different grape varieties from their respective regions. We certainly believe they are a refreshing change to Prosecco! 

Domaine de la Verpaille wowed us late last year, so we decided to ship over the Bourgogne Chardonnay and their two Vire Clesses- the Harmonie and Longchamp. They provide excellent value for money especially compared to their more famous counterparts in Pouilly Fuisse and St Veran. 

The new Sauvignon Gris ‘Cool Coast‘ from Casa Silva is definitely worth a try with its zingy minerality, as is the GrecoJanare from Southern Italy. It is fatter and richer than the Fianoand Falanghina and works perfectly with roasted white meats, cheese and polenta. 

The wines from Bohedal are now old favourites and for Easter, theCrianza and Reserva are just spot on.  Spring lamb and Rioja is the quintessential pairing. 

Bordeaux has always been a firm favourite of ours for Sunday lunch with the family and it continues to be a popular choice for many of our customers also.  We shipped the Saint-Emilion from
Domaine Chante Alouette Cormeil 2002 just before Christmas and we love its’ complexity. It shows a miriad of spice, eucalyptus, leather and wonderful earthiness. A winner with roast beef or cheese board. 

These are just a few suggestions from our Spring offer but we are happy to help with food and wine pairing anytime. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with your wine queries.
