Wedding season is quickly approaching! Looking for a great wedding gift idea? Wine makes a wonderful gift, one that can be enjoyed for years to come! We suggest giving a series of special wines to be opened in celebration of anniversaries to come!
To celebrate now with bubbles give a reserve brut champagne…
Jean Veselle NV Champagne Brut
This blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from a small Champagne producer, is light and crisp with hints of warm toasted notes on the palette. Its delicate bubbles and lingering finish make it the perfect toasting champagne!
To enjoy on their 1st anniversary…
Domaine Serene 2007 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir
A beautiful Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Black berry fruits jump out of the nose while the body is smooth and round, with a lovely polished feel to the dark berry, cherry, licorice and spice flavors, flowing easily over finely tuned tannins, persisting expressively. Perfect to be enjoyed next year or for the years to come!
To be opened in the celebration of their 5 year mark…
Boyer-Martenot 2009 Puligny-Montrachet
From the famed vineyards of Montrachet, its terroir encourages a Puligny with a more supple soul, smelling like spring yet tasting like summer. Aromas of fresh bay leaf & herbs mix with spring blossoms & a touch of earth; the mouth is pure and refined, a tangy marmalade of Meyer lemon & quince. Long, chiseled and full of verve. A spectacular wine to benchmark 5 years together!
To be indulged in on their 10 year anniversary…
Pelassa 2005 Barolo
Brilliant garnet red in hue, the nose is deeply scented with notes of dried flowers & wild rose falling into deeper scents of tobacco creating an intoxicating ethereal bouquet. Layers of black fruit backed by notes of wood & spice come through on the luscious ripe palate. Impressive tannins round out balancing this rich & powerful wine. A beautiful show-stopper that will be the perfect way to celebrate 10 years together!
We have many other options to suggest to make these special anniversaries memorable!
