Affordable, superbly balanced and delicious, the Champagne Malard Grand Cru de Blanc de Blancs will get your Valentine’s Day celebrations off to the perfect start.
Les Vaux Sereins Chablis:
If you’re more of a white wine aficionado, then this wonderful Les Vaux Sereins Chablis will definitely be a good choice. It is somewhat of a chameleon of the wine world insomuch it tastes fantastic alongside a wide range of different dishes and tastes and regardless of what culinary delight you have got planned for Valentine’s this Chablis should serve as a superb complement to it.
Another wine from the Burgundy region (it’s a good region!), this exceptional wine has a pale, green-flecked colour and has a myriad of taste sensations loitering within it such as apple, hazelnut and more than a hint of lemon. You may need a refined palate to pick them all up but even if you can’t experience each of these flavours, it is a really great wine for a night in with a loved one.
Made from the Chardonnay grape with a dry, light-bodied flavour, the Les Vaux Sereins Chablis has all the characteristics of a Valentine’s Day classic so crack open a bottle of this delicious white wine and spend some quality time with your loved one.
This is just a selection of wines that will be great for Valentine’s Day but, it goes without saying, that, on a day like this, it is all about the company, not the wine that you are drinking.
