Holiday wines at Boulder Wine Merchant. Happy Easter!
Happy Easter, everyone! As many of you plan your Easter celebration, we know that you’ll be looking out for wines that will pair well with the classic dishes of the season.
We’ve picked out a number of wines that we feel will work well, from a sparkling crowd pleaser and a wonderful California rosé (pink for the occasion!) to one of our favorite value-driven expressions of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a perfect pairing for lamb. Here’s the staff tasting note for the Châteauneuf-du-Pape:
La Berthaud’s Châteauneuf is an incredible value. 76% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 4% Mourvèdre, brought up entirely in tank, so all you get is pure fruit and terroir. Plush cherry flavors mingle with wild herbs and cracked black pepper, finishing with just enough tannins and minerality to balance it all out. Classic Châteauneuf at 1990’s pricing! This wine pairs terrifically with leg of lamb with Provençal herbs. We also like to pair it with roasted duck breast with black pepper. Enjoy it now or cellar for a decade.
