I thought I would put this together for anyone looking to push the boat out a little more this Spring. And why not treat yourselves after being locked away for so long. These are 4 of my favourite wines that we have on the list at the restaurant.
English Sparkling Wine
2 x Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2016
This is my favourite English sparkling wine and we serve it by the glass in the restaurant. Fabulous deep gold, dark and rich in colour.Toasty notes of freshly baked bread & even apple pie. Just perfect to raise a glass and celebrate being together again.
2 x Cotes du Provence Rose ‘Rock Angel’ Cuvee d’Esclans 2019
I have to admit that I have not always been the biggest fan of Provence rose……. but this exceptional and elegant wine changed my mind. It has qualities of delicious red fruit and a surprising spicy finish. It would be perfect with some grilled chicken or fish on the BBQ. Or of course just sit back and drink with your friends!
4 x Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre, Domaine Francois Crochet 2019
I am a total sucker for good Sancerre, but it has to be really good. This is a classic with a lovely grassy aroma and well-balanced ripe flavours. Utterly delicious with grilled trout or salmon or perhaps roast chicken.
4 x Chateau des Moines, Lalande de Pomerol 2016
This is a powerful wine, but still really well balanced -think cherries and candied red fruits. Great with steaks on the BBQ or a plate of strong cheese.
