Choosing the perfect sparkling wine for a romantic occasion such as Valentine's Day is a Herculean task.
But don't fret. I'm a big fan of romance and trust me, these suggestions will not steer you wrong.
A sip of this delicious drop sees hints of lemon, white flowers and spices twirling in your mouth. The Grand Cellier is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir.
IL Posto Prosecco is a sparkling wine made in the extra-dry style, with a long-lingering cascade of pinpoint bubbles that create a rich, lively mousse in the glass.
The Grand Reserve Brut is minerally infused with red fruits on a silky, midweight frame. It has gorgeous length and a refined subtle mousse.
A company secret that is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir, this wine has spent 36 months on lees producing a complex wine of strawberries, raspberries, with layers of marmalade and spicy fruits.
But if you really want to make your occasion special and grand, I would suggest these two masterpieces.
The ‘Pas Dose’ refers to the ‘zero dosage’ style of the wine; such is the richness gained by extended lees ageing that the wine requires no additional sweetness at bottling.
The Pinot is mostly felt in the wine’s richness and texture. Dried pears, flowers, spices and anise emerge over time, but is first and foremost a wine of subtlety.
So go ahead, try them, get your relationship 'sparkling' and thank me later.
