French Wine Survival Kit
Unsure of what wine to get for your festive soirée? Fearrington’s wine team is excited to offer three Holiday Survival Kits available for purchase at The Goat!
The French Deluxe Holiday Survival Kit features four bottles. This kit is valued at $105, but you can purchase it for only $89.99!
Dumont & Fils, Brut, Champagne, France
The Dumont family has been tending vines in the Aube region of Champagne for over 200 years. This Brut is predominately Pinot Noir, with a touch of Chardonnay, which lends to more red fruit notes, with undertones of butter, tropical fruit, and vanilla. Enjoy this Champagne with glazed pork loin, jerk chicken, squash soup, yeast rolls, scalloped potatoes, deviled eggs and kugel.
Domaine Matrot, Chardonnay, Burgundy, France
Now on its sixth generation, Domaine Matrot has been organically tended to since 2000. The quality and pedigree of this wine can’t be beat as the Chardonnay grapes are picked outside of the illustrious Meursault appellation in Burgundy. Drink this with your helping of herb chicken, grilled asparagus, challah bread, and rice pilaf.
Chateau Saint-Sulpice, Bordeaux, France
Chateau Saint-Sulpice is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers area, just NE of Bordeaux. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc, you will taste dark cherry, plum, currant, smoke, and herbal spices. Drink this with roast beef with horseradish sauce, pot pie, brussel sprouts, grilled vegetables, and green beans casserole.
La Fleur d’Or, Sauternes, France
A blend of Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc from various Sauternes chateaux and smaller producers alike, this botrytis-affected cuvee lends notes of candied tropical fruits, apricot, and baking spice. Sip with your spicier, richer desserts such as fruit cake, rum cake, pound cake, apple pie, bundt cake and eggnog desserts.
Stay tuned to hear about the Italian Deluxe Holiday Survival Kit, only $89.99 (valued at $105)!
