Le Plonque’s best wine selection for Easter
What are you planning to cook for Easter? Whether you’ll choose a nice lamb roast or roasted chicken, we’ve got it all covered for you in terms of wine.
You can never go wrong serving a bottle of French Pinot noir or Cabernet Merlot with lamb for Easter. While the deep, rich fruit flavour and firm tannin structure of Cabernet matches well with the richness and texture of lamb, Pinot Noir is also a good match because it has the fruit, the earthiness, and the acidity that you are looking for in a gamey dish like lamb. Pinot noir will also go very well with a chicken roast.
Don’t forget dessert! A nice bottle of Remy Massin Champagne would be perfect to cheer and celebrate the Easter holiday.
Cabernet-Sauvignon-Merlot 2012 - Pauillac, Grand-Cru classe
This wine has lovely aromas of red berries. The attack is fresh in the mouth.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 2011, Second Grand-Cru classe
This wine offers the pleasure and thrill of a fine harmonious bouquet‚ a silkiness bursting with fruit in the mouth‚ and an entrancing fresh finish. All the finesse of a great terroir simply and subtly revealed.
Pinot noir 2015
This Pinot noir offers a palette of aromas, red and black fruits, with a supple mouth and moderate tannin.
With this wine, you will taste the aromas of red summer berry fruit, red currant and baking spices. Tangy, refined, with suave tannins; flavours of pomegranate jam, red cherries, spice box.
This Cuvee Prestige has a very subtle bouquet of butter, honey and white flowers. The taste is elegant and harmonious. Once described as 'a piece of lace in the mouth'. A Champagne wine to be tasted in cosy surroundings.
