Our President’s Spring Picks for Special Occasions

President of DMS Wine_Alex MilliganSpring is in full swing. Although gatherings are not the same, wine options have not changed.

Whether it is an upcoming celebratory occasion or a date night in to celebrate each other, many often wonder about the perfect wine choice for the occasion or meal.

Well, you don’t have to think too hard because we have you covered!

Our president Alex Milligan has your top picks for spring wines.

Going red?

Alex’s top seasonal suggestion for a red wine is Domaine du Vieux Lazaret “Cuvée Exceptionelle” (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) – 94 Pts, Editors’ Choice, Wine Enthusiast ; 93 Pts, James Suckling (2015).

A bold old-school style with big extract and ripe, concentrated fruit. A wonderful red full of plum and red-berry flavors, this is a perfect option for a spring occasion.

This wine pairs well with red meats, dishes cooked in sauce, meat terrine and cheeses.

Going white?

Alex’s top seasonal suggestion for a white wine is Fournier Sancerre Silex 93 Pts, Wine Enthusiast; 92 Pts, James Suckling (2018).

Just like the spring breeze, this wine is lively with zippy energy. Full of brandishing textbook lemon pith, wet straw, and gooseberry notes, all backed by a savory hint on the bony, lengthy finish.

This pairs perfectly with a seafood or salad; can you say bliss for the taste buds?

Spring is a time for new beginnings and rebirth. Enjoy a new wine and add to your collection!
