THE FESTIVE VINO COLLECTION
Business Traveller India|November 2021
The festive season is here and a wine expert recommends some labels that must be in your bar at this time of the year
NIKHIL  AGARWAL

There is something fantastic about this time of the year. The parties, the festivals and the time spent with family and friends. Especially after all this time apart. The weather improves drastically too and after a scorching October, we do have a few months of blissful weather. There are a few times in the year that I open the purse strings and splurge a little on I vino. This year, now that things are finally getting back to normal, I recommend opening those strings a little more.

Here is a list of ten wines that will make those special evenings and moments even more memorable.

DOMINIO DE CAIR SELLECCION LA AGUILERA, RIBERO DEL DUERO, SPAIN

Tasting Notes: Black cherry-red with good depths of colour. An intense nose of fine wood, leather, cigar box, dark chocolate and fruit combine with sweet tannins to produce a beautifully balanced, elegant red. Aged for 14 months in French and American oak.

CHATEAU MONT-REDON CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE BLANC 2020, RHONE, FRANCE

Tasting Notes: A white Chateauneuf du Pape! Bright yellow colour with greenish glints. Intense nose with floral, zesty and citrusy notes. The refined and full-bodied palate combines roundness and vivacity leading to a very long finish.

ZÉDÉ DE LABÉGORCE, MARGAUX, FRANCE
