3 FRENCH WINES FIT FOR A FETE!
PEAR, STILTON & WALNUT SALAD Cave Orschwiller Les Faitieres Pinot Gris 2015, £13.50
Notes of acacia and elderberry. The off-dry style of this largely crisp wine will go brilliantly with the sweetness of the pear, the tang of the stilton and the bitterness of the walnuts.
HEARTY WILD VENISON CASSEROLE AND ROOT VEGETABLE GRATIN Domaine Roche Audran Cuvee Nature, £15
A completely natural Rhône red, with no added sulphites. Deeply flavoured and intense with a long, fruity, lasting finish, making it an ideal partner for rich venison.
GALETTE DES ROIS Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon, £25
This sweet Loire white has clementine and apricot flavours layered with date notes. The long finish lets sweet and tangy notes play out beautifully, so will work wonderfully with this indulgent, nutty tart.
Wines recommended by Borough Wines & Beers (boroughwines.co.uk), which works with small producers worldwide to offer a unique selection of wines, spirits and beers through its website and nine shops in London and Hastings. Cheers!
Find the fève in the galette and you could be as smug as the queen that got the cream (just for the night though)
