Wine is often honoured with the epithet of ‘bottled poetry’ and mind we say, equally poetic is the exuberance of Spring. While we’re midway of this beautiful season and to announce it officially ‘Spring’ we have curated a list for all you wine connoisseurs – as the French say it, a proper spring wine is a vin de soif (refreshing and thirst quenching) – exactly how these exquisite wines are. Let’s see which one gets your approval.

Pinot Noir aka Red Burgundy
The fare has been spread, your classic cutlery is out and the beautiful spring flowers are lending a charm to your dinner table but what’s missing is the classic French-loved Pinot Noir wine to complete this fascinating picture. If your guests have a devotion for low alcohol content and slightly fruity flavours (strawberry, cherry, raspberry, and blackberry), just open the bottle and see it becoming the heart of the evening in no time.

Some of the most exclusive Pinot noir wines we suggest are Marcassin Vineyard Pinot Noir, Kistler Vineyards Pinot Noir and Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
If you are planning a relaxing day with your girlfriends, take out a bottle of Chablis and sip away to glory; the citrus and flowery aromas of this wine will surely make the day come alive splendidly. If you are one lady that prefers a little more intensity in her wine then Premier Cru or Grand Crus should be your poisson.

Domaine Francois Raveneau Foret, Chablis Premier Cru and Domaine Francois Raveneau Foret, Chablis Premier Cru are the wines that will lend exclusivity to your spring days.
As a wine aficionado, you have probably served the most exclusive of wines at dinners and brunches, so the next time around why not surprise your friends and family with a slightly distinctive wine. The Cabernet Franc red wines, originating from the green Loire Valley, offer a unique taste with notes of green grass or bell pepper. Also, they have a wonderful variety on the table to pick from!

Clos Rougeard Saumur-Champigny Le Bourg exclusively from France and Morlet Family Vineyards 'Force de la Nature' Cabernet Franc from the famed Napa Valley will surely charm your guests.
Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Champagne in the list of wines, you wonder? Well, there’s no rule when it comes to spring drinking needs and Blanc de Blancs Champagne had to make it to the list for its intense expression of fruitiness. Made only from Chardonnay grapes, its aroma and texture fits perfectly well with the bliss of spring evenings. If you are looking to spend quite a lovey-dovey evening at home with your better half, just play some soulful love ballads and uncork a romantic rendezvous with this choice.

The Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs Champagne is the perfect one that we suggest owing to its creamy texture and florally-citrus aroma.
So go ahead, uncork the lovely wines from your cellar and enjoy the beauty of this delightful season. Cheers!
