French Wine Sale Selections

French Wine Sale Selections

Our French wine sale begins this Wednesday, May18th and is running rightthroughthe weekend until Tuesday the 24th, so there can be no better time to pick up a few bottles of your favourite French wine or even to try something new.

With over 300 wines covering a wide variety of wine styles, there's something here to suit everyone.

To get you thinking, I have highlighted just a few of my top picks below, but to see the full range, click here or even better why not dropintoyour local O'Briens Store.

To start I am going with a classic white from Southern Burgundy, Cave de Lugny Mâcon-Lugny is easily one of the best examples the region produces. Ample peach and pear fruit, good structure and a long dry finish. This is the perfect all-round white wine that drinks well on its own but can match a wide variety of food from fresh shellfish to roast poultry.

Sticking with the classic theme and moving into Bordeaux, Château Claymore is a delicious Merlot-based Lussac-Saint-Émilion, which has abundant, ripe blackberry/blackcurrant fruit, complemented by flavours of cherry, vanilla & liquorice with perfectly-ripe silky tannins all very well balanced by some intelligent use of oak. Pair this up with some grilled lamb chops and you are in for a real treat.

To finish my selection I have chosen a Bordeaux-influenced red from the south of France,the Lynch-Bages owned L' Ostal Cazes Eclipse is made from a blend of the local Syrah grape variety mixed with Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc yielding a wine which has a superb density of dark blueberry and blackberry fruit, French oak and complex sweet spices. This is a wine that is crying out for a juicy rib-eye steak.

All of these wines along with some other French treats will be on the tasting table in all of our stores this Friday & Saturday.
