Wines with the family

A selection of wines recently enjoyed with family and friends.

To start the evening we had some biscuity champagne which was delicious. Never turn down a glass or two of pop!
We discussed the bisuity versus toasty topic. Anna said she likes the really buttery toasty champagne. I think this is the style of Laurent Perrier which is a favourite of ours. I can also highly recommend Tesco Finest champagne which is top notch class as well as Waitrose own Cava which is always brilliant!

In the restaurant I tasted the wines for our table. A fresh and fruity Merlot from Italy and a complex oaked Chardonnay, big in style- also Italian. I had quite a few glasses of both the wines during the meal and why not! To go with dessert there was a delicious muscat sweet dessert wine.
