12 Days of Christmas
12 Days of Christmas
Day 1 : A Partridge in a Pear Tree
Wine: Domaine Denizot Sancerre Blanc Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Find the perfect pairing for a pear and cheese platter! The pineapple, green apple and herbal notes in this wine will match perfectly with Brie or Camembert with pears!
Day 2: Two Turtle Doves
Wine: Roberta Fugatti Teroldego, Vallagarina 2018
A wine with as much complexity as this Teroldego is the perfect pairing with Chocolate turtles! Coffee, black cherry and anise will turn these chocolates into an elevated snack by transforming the flavors into a mocha-chocolatey dream!
Day 3: Three French Hens
Wine: Crosby Roamann Chardonnay 2018
This Napa Chard is a deliciously oaked white and will always be a wonderful pairing for roasted hen, especially when made Mediterranean style with simple herbs like rosemary, nutmeg and black pepper!
Day 4: Four Calling Birds
Wine: Domaine Lucien Jacob Bourgogne Pinot Noir Rosé
When your Christmas menu is calling for Turkey, why not pair it with a dry rose! Rose is such a wonderful accompaniment with this poultry dish as the medium intensity of both let eachother speak for themselves. The fruit forward nature of the wine will harmonize with this lightly flavored meat and elevate it for the perfect Christmas meal!
Day 5: Five Golden Rings
Wine: Maset (Nu) Cava Brut Reserva
A Cava that shines like gold is Maset (Nu) Cava Brut. When you need the perfect wine for toasting look no further as this delicate and pretty sparkler, driven by citrus, peach and pear fruit with a fresh croissant toastiness that will be sure to impress.
Day 6: Six Geese a-Laying
Wine: Domaine Denis Carré Haut-Côtes de Beaune, Les Perrièré, 2018
Pinot Noir is the perfect pairing for goose dishes, especially those which are accompanied by earthy side dishes such as stuffing and greens! The smoothness of this wine and fruity notes make this wine a great balance for a rich meal!
Day 7: Seven Swans a-Swimming
Wine: Château Valcombe ‘Epicure’ Grenache/Syrah/Carignan, 2016
Our dinner plates will be swimming in gravy this holiday season and what we need is a wine that can cut through all the fat and leave your palate refreshed! This Chateau Valcombe “Epicure” is an intensely fruited red with black and blue fruit, olive brine, black pepper and savory herbs – perfect for balancing out the turkey fat and drippings while offering an elevated flavor profile. Perfect for the modern day Epicurean!
Day 8: Eight Maids a-Milking
Wine: Two Sisters Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Icewine 2013
Our take on milk is none other than milk chocolate and what better pairing is there for milk chocolate than a lovely Icewine! Rich and intense with flavors of ripe and stewed strawberries, cherries and red raspberries this wine is deliciously sweet with perfectly balanced acidity to cut down the richness of the chocolate.
Day 9: Nine Ladies Dancing
Wine: Cave du Luberon Alidon Blanc Vermentino/Grenache Blanc 2020
For a fun night of dancing try the Alidon Blanc, a Vermentino blend with a light body to keep you on your toes! Exotic fruits, pineapple and passionfruit with a touch of salinity will have you dancing away into the night!
Day 10: Ten Lords a-Leaping
Wine: Costers del Priorat “Pissares”, Garnacha/Carignan 2018
When it comes to royalty, you either go big or go home. This red Priorat demands attention with its dark and mature flavor profile with note of black cherry, cedar and baking spices. The electric freshness and suave mouthfeel oozes with minerality and florality.
Day 11: Eleven Pipers Piping
Wine: Botanica Arboretum Cab Sauv/Cab Franc/Merlot/Petit Verdot 2017
If you are a fan of cigar smells or a log burning on the fire, get yourself a wine that exudes earthy and tobacco aromas! South Africa’s Botanica has created “Arboretum”, a blend reminiscent of Bordeaux best blends, with black cherry and tobacco on the nose. On the palate, it boasts an earthy core of opulent plum, cassis fruit and potting soil. Firm tannis provide great texture and structure!
Day 12: Drummers Drumming
Wine: Bedouet Vigneron ‘Perles de Saint Michel’ Blanc de Blanc Chardonnay NV
Theres always music playing at a holiday party and a wine that goes well with a casual and festive atmosphere is Bedouet Vigneron’s Perles de Saint Michel Blanc de Blancs. This sparkler is bound to get you in the holiday spirit with its bright fruit flavors and creamy bubbles!
