Dear <<First Name>>,
Summer drinking picks from wine consultant Frederic Vigroux who is not too sexy for his shirt or indeed our wine list. However he does have a sexy "Buy like the pros" offer on the night for cases of six bottles. Join Fred for his advice and recommendations and of course some sampling with us tomorrow on what promises to be a glorious warm evening on the terasa. Details of the wines are as follows:
Les Méridiennes Vaucluse 2013 - Marrenon- France (Case of 6 bottles 160 Lei incl TVA)
This is a real "Vin de copain" made in Vaucluse, a region within the great Provence: it’s good, easy, light priced, it’s THE wine to drink with friends all night long.
Chardonnay IGT Veneto 2014 - Bonotto delle Tezze - Italy ( Case of 6 bottles 240 Lei incl TVA)
Floral, mango and melon notes. Lively acidity, round, precise.
Prosecco - DOC Treviso - Bonotto delle Tezze - Italy ( Case of 6 bottles 245 Lei incl TVA)
Extra-dry could also mean extra-round, extra-floral, extra-refreshing and for sure, ex-cellent.
Faugères Rosé 2014 - Château Grezan - France ( Case of 6 bottles 270Lei incl TVA)
My alternative to the Provence wines, who said Languedoc couldn’t be sexy?
Chianti Rufina Riserva 2009 - Cantina Fratelli Bellini - Italy ( Case of 6 bottles 280Lei incl TVA)
Red wine is “not for summer”, but if you want one, this Chianti is intense, with notes of dried flowers and liquorice, medium-body, and very perfumed.
Chianti Rufina Il Pozzo 2011 - Cantina Fratelli Bellini - Italy( Case of 6 bottles 330Lei incl TVA)
Red fruits, blackcurrant and liquorice. Medium body, high tannins, crispy acidity, elegant.
