STAFF PICKS - DECEMBER 2021
Posted by YiXin Ong on
Maria cleverly chose the perfectly-proportioned 2018 Chinon «La Croix Boisée» from Domaine Bernard Baudry for drinking this December. Its supple tannins reflect both the chalky terroir and Mathieu's deft hand in the cellar; poised power means it's a great match for Christmas and New Year's feasts.
Evelien, pining for the Alps, has chosen the next best thing to getting on a plane with the inimitable 2016 Roussette de Savoie Altesse by the Dupasquier family. Rich yet fresh, its undertow of acidity is perfect for cheese platters and creamy dishes, or even better, raclette and fondue!
