Wine and love go hand by hand
The new year has begun and we are already in February, the month of love. Between the pricey Christmas holidays and the start of 2017, here we are again looking for a presents for our loved ones. However, we at Caviste Authentique are thinking about your wealth and happiness, by offering you wide range of choices for your gift this year.
A great gift to celebrate the day of love comes from the wine cellar La Grande Cave is a wine box with a poem written on it containing 2 bottles of St Amour 2015 which is a Burgundy wine 100% Gamay. The nose is very powerful with notes of violets, cherries and blackcurrant. On the palette the wine is very pleasant with souple tannins and a nice and affirmative finish on the end palette.
Let’s take a look at our white wines, even though it’s still chilly outside, typically speaking the ladies prefer white wine. Vincent Lavigne wine cellar suggests a Tradition 2014 Les 4 Amours from the Languedoc-Roussillon region, which is a blend between Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay. This wine is very fresh on the palette, with floral and citrus notes, with a refreshing finish on the end palette, great to be enjoyed with an aperitif.
From the same domaine-Les 4 Amours, the wine cellar Vincent Lavigne offers you the cuve Olga-also a white wine from 2014, which is a blend between Roussanne and Chardonnay. This cuve is interesting because the Roussanne grape variety has been matured in oak barrels, which gives a slightly roasted aromas. Very expressive on the nose this wine unveils aromas such as pear, white pepper and nuts. It is a rich wine and on the palette creamy and ample.
The cellar Cave d’ales presents also a great white wine Vacqueyras blanc 2013 from the domaine Les Amouriers with an assembly of white Grenache (55%), Roussanne (43%), Viognier (2%). This wine has been matured in french oak during 12 months and is has a Bio certification label.
To celebrate Valentine's Day with your partner you can also choose a red wine. For instance the cellar Vincent Lavigne offers you a red wine from the domaine Les 4 Amours- Cuvée Louis 2012 which is a beautiful blend of Syrah and Grenache. On the nose this wine is powerful with great notes of jam black fruits such as the blackcurrant and on the palette the tannins are very fine and elegant.
Another great suggestion is the wine of the people in love which is the name of the cuvée from the domaine Amiot Servelle- Les Amoureuses 2012 from the cellar Les Caves de Reuilly. A 100% Pinot Noir, this wine comes from the unique terroir of Burgundy and is a classic wine from the region. A dinner for 2 with a main course of poultry can be a great wine pairing.
Why not pop up a bottle of champagne with Amour de Deutz which is a 100% Chardonnay from the wine cellar of Vins Bertrand.
To end the evening, you could try the rum Madras Punch d’Amour 18 ° from our cellar Christian de Montaguère, which specializes in rums from around the world.
