Valentine’s Day in New York can be both magical and stressful; you get to show your appreciation for the one you love, but scoring a dinner reservation on that romantic night can be difficult. The thing is: You have to make it as special as the person in your life, so why not consider staying in and enjoying the holiday with your own unique menu? If this sounds like a good plan, then an important element to consider, according to the staff at the Upper West Side’s Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits, will be selecting the right bottle of wine or champagne to complement the meal.
So what do these wine experts recommend for Valentine’s Day? Let’s take a look:
- Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron Pauillac: Currently featured by the store, this exceptional bottle comes from the Bordeaux region of France. This second growth red wine is known for its rich, full body, elegant tannins, and a flavor profile that is spicy and balanced.
- de Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume: If you’re looking for a white wine with real personality, look no further than this sauvignon blanc. Well balanced and lively, notes of white blossoms, hawthorn, white nettles and grapefruit are enhanced by a fruity roundness with bold pear, green apple, and citrus flavors.
- Billecart-Salmon Champagne Cuvee Nicolas-Francois: For lovers of bubbly, you can’t do much better than this delightful 1999 appellation. Aromatic overtones of yeast and baked goods mingle bright, lemony notes with a mélange of verbena and blond tobacco flavors.
