Birmingham Wine Weekend – JOURNAL ENTRY OCT 8

BIRMINGHAM WINE WEEKEND

16–18 October 2020

 

THE JOURNAL

 

THIS WEEK’S HOT SPOT

 

This week we’re drinking at Hotel Du Vin to celebrate their 25th anniversary!  It would be rude not to raise a glass to this Birmingham institution at such a milestone! Naturally, to celebrate the French origin of the company name, the wine we’re drinking is from France.

Introducing Château Lorgeril, Grande Cuvée Aop Cabardes, 2015 (30% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Grenache Et 5% Cot)

So, what can you expect? When you kick back in the Bubble Lounge and take a look at this delightful wine, you’ll see it’s deep garnet-red in colour. On the nose you’ll find blackberry aromas and a touch of spices, perhaps even a bit of chocolate. This tipple is full bodied with lasting flavours of blackcurrant and we’re big fans. It’s priced at £38 per bottle, bring a pal and enjoy a glass or two as the evenings get darker and the nights get colder.

Stefan the Sommelier at HDV tells us that there are only a very small number of bottles available so if you want to give it a go, get yourself to the Bubble lounge pronto!

Cheers to you Hotel Du Vin! Happy Birthday from Birmingham!
