All my friends and colleagues know that I am a flora-holic! Anything related to flowers will catch my attention! And it is no exception when it comes to wine. I love wines with floral tastes, especially for a blossoming Spring! And you’ve guessed it right, I am introducing you to floral wines today!
One of my all-time favourites is definitely Gewurztraminer from Alsace, which is a medium-sweet white wine. It reveals rose and lychee aromas with a wonderful smooth texture. You can hardly find another grape like this!
Another floral wine would be Chapuy Extra Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs. This 100% Chardonnay Champagne has excellent non-sweet aromas of white flowers and white fruits along with delicate fine bubbles.
講到香檳的話，Chapuy 特級白中白 Extra Brut香檳都有淡淡百合花香～加上白色果肉的香氣、細緻迷人的泡沫，最啱鍾意花香而又唔想飲甜嘢的你～
For red wine, a nice gamay wine would be my floral choice. Coteaux Bourguignon and Beaujolais are both 100% Gamay, the lightest type of red wine grapes. If you serve them chilled, they are very refreshing and crispy with red fruits aromas like strawberry and raspberry, and a little floral tastes like violet and rose.
If you want a bolder red wine but floral at the same time, Chateau Prieure Lichine from Margaux would be your perfect choice. It is medium-bodied with mature dark fruits and floral aromas.
你鍾意厚身d嘅紅酒？咁就要飲Margaux區的Chateau Prieure Lichine la～中厚身的酒體，加上深邃的沉實果香及紫羅蘭花香，絕對係高雅的選擇～
Sauternes itself is very sweet and often with floral aromas as well. Take Suduiraut as an example, it exhibits aromas of yellow flowers along with complicated quince, pear, honey, and wood. For me, this is HEAVEN. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
