Our His and Hers Case contains 6 bottles of Chateau Trois Tours 2009 – a fuller bodied Red for Him and 6 bottles of Fleur de Luze 2009 – an elegant White for Her.
Chateau Trois Tours 2009
Chateau Des Trois Tours 2009 has an intense bouquet ad flavours of ripe blackberry, coffee, raspberry and vanilla; and a hint of oak coupled with a very fine long liquorice finish. The wine is a deep dark garnet colour with well balanced, silky tannins. Des Trois Tours ages well and is a seductive wine being supple with good complexity and depth. We recommend you decant 2 hours before serving.
Fleur de Luze 2009
Fleur de Luze is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and has been well received by wine enthusiasts and critics alike: ‘a lovely crisp, light personality alongside exciting depth of character’ – Tara O’Leary. The wine is a clear, crystalline pale gold colour with a very clean citrus, lychee, and mango bouquet. It has a long, fruity after taste which follows through with a slight hint of ripe grapefruit and a refreshingly slight touch of fizz.
It can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with a seafood platter, Mediterranean prawns or grilled fish such as shad on a barbecue, trout, or scampi. Fleur de Luze is terrific with appetizers such as Mezze, Tapas and Dim Sum. It’s also great with Thai cuisine and cheese – try it with a fondue! It’s best served well-chilled at around 9°-10°C.
