Ready for date night?
Domaine des Pins Les Pierres Saint-Amour
Feeling romantic? Sometimes the best date nights are at home. My husband and I will often pick a recipe that we find intriguing, a great bottle of wine, a good movie and stay in. One of our favorite date night dinners is osso buco with risotto Milanese, which is total comfort slow-cooked deliciousness. It’s decadent and suitable for a special occasion evening. This brings me to the wine. What better for a date night than a bottle from St. Amour. Sure it’s a bit cliche, but that never hurt anyone!
This particular Cru Beaujolais was sturdy and able to stand up to our rich meal of slow-cooked veal and creamy rice. This wine had a lot of cherry aromas with a little bit of spice and slate mixed in. It was medium-bodied with a bit of cranberry on the palate. Our creamy, rich dinner helped balance out the tannins and tartness of the wine, making it a winning combo.
