Wines of the Month Case, June 2013 Ref: JUNE13CASE
This month two wines perfect to take advantage of the warm days, as both red and white are lovely over a range of temperatures.
Vincent Lacondemine's "Le Chapital" is legendary amongst customers here. This is an amazing Beaujolais. It can be drank at 18 degrees to feel very Burgundian, at 16 degrees to be more like a Beaujolais Cru, and handles being chilled beautifully - you can take it in a cooler to a picnic, barbecue, garden party or Ascot (if you order by the 17h). I love it with goats cheeses (if you visit Vincent he always has the most amazing goat cheeses!), with ham and saucisson and tapas style nibbles, with barbecued chicken, with caesar's salads or a pasta salad... Enjoy!
Riesling "Feinherb" 2011. Feinherb is a term for off dry Riesling - it is not the semi sweet of more traditional Riesling (called "Lieblich") or the dryness of "Trocken", it is somewhere in between. You might wonder why they create this "in between" wine? Well, think of Goldilocks... that little bit of sweetness makes it very flexible - it can handle Asian food, smooth out spicy food, it holds up to the honeyed sweetness of many barbecue sauces, and yet the wine remains sharp enough to accompany a salad or seafood. Uncomplicated and versatile.
