Over 3 weeks we will run up to Christmas with a French theme, albeit with a distinctly southern flavour. The six wines that we will be tasting are little bit unusual, a little bit indulgent (it is almost Christmas) and / or personal favourites of mine. And with a nod to Christmas considering which wine might work best with a classic Christmas course.
We will taste:
Week 1 – The smoked salmon, a classic Languedoc blend of Vermentino and Viognier and a “fairy” nice white from Roussillon.
Domaine Les Caizergues, Les Voisins £15.00
Côtes Du Roussillon: Les Sorcières Du Clos Des Fées Blanc £18.00
Week 2 – The cold cuts, one of my favourite rosés from the hills above Nice and a top Beaujolais Cru.
Bellet: Domaine De La Source Rosé £27.50
Moulin a Vent, Arnaud AuCouer £19.50
Week 3 – The main course, a Nielluccio, Sciacarello blend from Corsica and a fine expression of Mourvѐdre from Provence
Corse Sartène Rouge 2020 £17.50
Château Ste Anne, Bandol Rouge £34.00
The wines have been specially selected from VIN of Gateshead and are available at the exclusive discounted price of £124.00 for the 6 bottle case. Book now and order the wines before 4th December for free delivery.
