Love a celebration…

The bubbles we’ll be serving to celebrate Valentine’s Day

Not everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day. But we take any opportunity to raise a glass of something exceptional … and love works for us. So here’s our suggestion of what to pop open – or gift – this February.

Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut Rosé
One of our top choices is the Nicolas Feuillatte Réserve Exclusive Brut Rosé – perfectly pink with a cascade of tiny bubbles, elegant, creamy and bursting with fresh summer fruits. A delicious apéritif, it also happens to be extremely food-friendly, pairing perfectly with many of the romantic treats we like to enjoy on Valentine’s Day.

Nicolas Feuillatte Graphic Ice Rosé Demi-Sec
If you prefer something a little sweeter … try  the Nicolas Feuillatte Graphic Ice Rosé Demi-Sec. Generous and fruity with a satisfying touch of sweetness perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity, the eye-catching metallic packaging was specially designed to sparkle around the clock … to reflect the rays of the sun and to glimmer in the dark of the night. A delicate pink coral colour with a fine persistent mousse, this Demi-Sec Champagne abounds with captivating red and black fruit notes of cherry, raspberry and strawberry. It is fresh, round and velvety with a subtle sweetness and a smooth pleasing finish. Best served ultra-chilled. Around R840 from wine retailers.

Krone Vintage Rosé Cuvée Brut
Nothing says romance like a glass of chilled pink bubblies, so say ‘I love you’ in sparkling style with the enchanting Krone Vintage Rosé Cuvée Brut 2019. Serve perfectly chilled and be beguiled by its gorgeous gossamer pink colour, graceful velvety mousse, alluring fragrance of wild strawberries and rose petals and its luscious creaminess. A blend of 92 per cent Pinot Noir and 8 per cent Chardonnay, it’s lovely with simple picnic with slivers of charcuterie, crusty sourdough bread and ripe, melty Camembert, or something more substantial like 0salmon with crispy skin crackling and wild black rice or duck with cherries. Around 190 from bottlestores or www.kronecapclassique.co.za
