Fine Wine Red Gift Set
3 bottle gift
A delightful gift for any lover of fine French reds, this selection of three wines contains an elegant claret, spicy Crozes-Hermitage and fresh, vibrant Fleurie from Beaujolais. Presented in an elegant dark wood gift box.
Cave de Tain 2007/08 Les Hauts de Pavières Crozes-Hermitage, Rhône, France: A rich wine with aromas of black fruits and delicate spicy/toasty notes. Blended from 100% Syrah grapes from various vineyards in the north of the Rhône, a third of the wine spent 12 months ageing in oak barrels to add a subtle smoky edge to the rich blackberry-fruit flavours. Enjoy with robust and hearty food. Château Segonzac 2007/08 Premières Côtes de Blaye, Bordeaux, France: A top-class claret from the somewhat underrated Premières Côtes de Blaye region. The exact blend is selected each vintage by the Waitrose buyer, Ken Mackay MW and we feel this wine offers really consistent value as a result. Enjoy this serious claret with grilled lamb or hard cheeses such as Gruyère or Comte. Bouchard Père et Fils 2010 Fleurie, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France: A classic Fleurie: aromatic with vibrant, summer-pudding fruit flavours and soft tannins. This excellent wine has fruity and juicy summer berry flavours with soft tannins. Structured with some mouth-feel, it is a great food wine complementing a wide range of dishes. Try with roast beef, chicken or pork.
