It’s that time of year! As Euro 2016 marches on, it’s getting more and more fun to watch: and more and more necessary to have a few bottles of wine on hand.
Since this year’s tournament takes place in France, it’s the perfect opportunity to feel like you’re really there cheering your team on with a bottle or two of BottlesXO’s finest French bottles.
Here are our suggestions.
Chateau Montcabrier Bordeaux Superieur
Let’s start with something classic; a rich, fruity red from one of France’s most legendary wine regions. It’s a smooth, deceptively complex red wine that will definitely go down a storm; and one that will pair perfectly with cold cuts or a pizza if you’re looking for a nice and easy evening!
Hecht & Bannier Côtes de Provence Blanc
An rich, intense white wine from some of France’s most exciting winemakers; what could be a better way to get in to the spirit of this year’s Euros? Like the French team, it’s a crowd-pleaser too, a pleasant white that’s big and bold enough to stand up to a bit of classy charcuterie and other such perfect match-watching snacks. Not only that, it’s organic too!
de Venoge Cordon Bleu
Finally, for celebrating (or commiserating) in style, there’s no better option than Champagne. de Venoge is one of the most respected and historic Champagne houses in France, for good reason; and right now their Cordon Bleu is selling for an unbeatable price on the BottlesXO app! There’s never been a better time to splurge on some bubbly and indulge in a quintessentially French celebration.
