Wine for Valentine’s Day
“When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie. That’s amore. When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine. That’s amore”…
Make your world shine this Valentine’s Day by matching a perfect bottle of wine with romance. But what wine do you choose? Here are some suggestions to help get the pulses racing:
Rosé Champagne – Forget giving your other half the box of chocolates that you’ve ineptly rearranged in an attempt to hide the fact you’ve eaten all the toffee ones. Buy a bottle of pink champagne and show that you care enough to pour the very best. Try our Champagne Jean-Paul Deville Tradition Rose NV (£30.99) or the seductive Champagne Philipponnat Reserve Rosee Brut NV (£43.99).
Red Burgundy – Tailor-made for seduction. The Pinot Noir grape is known as the “Romancer” in the wine world – elegant, full flavoured with enthralling earthiness whose aromas and velvetiness seduces you with every sip. Grab a bottle of our great value J P Robert Pinot Noir 2010 (£9.99) or the Bourgogne-Irancy 2009 from our friends Benoit & Bernard Cantin (£17.99).
Aphrodisiacs and Wine – Match up the right aphrodisiac foods with wine and you will be reaching for the “Do Not Disturb” sign. Try oysters with our Gerard Fiou Sancerre 2011 (£16.99) or the sweet and sexy Emilio Hidalgo Pedro Ximenez sherry (£23.99) with chocolate.
The Champagne Bath – Why not splash out (sorry about the pun) in a bath of Champagne? It could be an expensive experience though as it would take 350 bottles to fill the average bath to the brim.
