Wine O’Clock Wines
The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Pol Roger Brut NV Champagne, France
I am a total lover of fizz and Champagne and English sparkling wines top my list of faves! This Champagne also tops my list of Champagne faves too so when I see it on offer I make sure to snap some up. It also comes packaged in the most gorgeous gift box so is fantastic to treat both yourself and others! A classic blend of the 3 Champagne grape varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, this has attractive yeasty autolysis and notes of nuts, bread and apple. Long, balanced, harmonious and irresistible!
Born Rosé 2019 Spain
Every summer it is the same and rosé becomes a firm staple in our household as the temperature increases! My sister-in-law brought this bottle over as a gift at the weekend and it was very good indeed. Made from organic grapes and from a blend of Grenache and Tempranillo it is pale pink in colour and yet with really lively yet elegant red berry fruit flavours from tart cranberry to tasty cherries and succulent strawberry. Bottled with a glass closure this is a striking, attractive alternative to Provence pinks.
