The perfect Rosé pairing for your Christmas Menu


It's that time of the year again, Christmas is coming! Planning is in full swing. What do you cook for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Who’s coming over? Which wine should you serve? The short answer: Rosé!

One of the Christmas Eve classics in Germany are sausages and potato salad. Rustic and tasty. In the south of the republic, the potato salad comes with vinegar and oil, in the north with mayonnaise. Our recommendation for wine pairing is the "Première" from Figuière or the Cru Classé Rosé from Château Sainte Roseline "Lampe de Méduse". Both have peppery notes and enough power to give the Wieners or Frankfurters and potato salad the necessary spice.

Another classic for Christmas Eve is the fondue, mostly in the meat variant. Depending on your preference with chicken, turkey, pork, veal, beef or even a mix boiled in hot oil. In addition, a delicious dip and the exquisite meal is ready. But which wine suits all these meats? Rosé unites everyone and we recommend the powerful “Château Léoube” Rosé from the La Londe coast of the Provence. This great Rosé has a nice round body and minerality, which gives the fondue the necessary balance.

A Christmas classic is the turkey stuffed or not with delicious side dishes. We recommend one of our most elegant Rosés in our portfolio: the "Château de la Gaude - Garance Rosé". Soft, mineral with gentle acidity a perfect pairing to this delicious Christmas turkey. We also have a possible upgrade: the "Château de Selle Cru Classé" from Domaines Ott. The utmost elegance, softness and character, simply world-class.

Are you planning to prepare a goose for Christmas? For this we recommend a full body Barrique Rosé where you can taste the ageing in wooden barrels. It gives the Rosé more power and allows ageing as well. We often recommend an older vintage because these are more balanced. For Christmas we recommend the classic "Château Pas Du Cerf - Grande Cuvée Audace” or the "Château d'Esclans - Rock Angel Rosé", both delicious powerful Rosés.

Let's check out a last typical Christmas dish, duck. Duck is usually served with a slightly sweet sauce. This can either be an orange, plum or gingerbread sauce. Here we can certainly recommend a Rosé Champagne like the "Ruinart Rosé" or a Grand Cru Rosé Champagne with a fantastic price the "Favori Rosé Champagne". Also a modern pairing would be the Brut Nature "Bob Singlar Bulles" from Domaines de la Mongestine with its fruity but dry aromas.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, good appetite and cheers!
