Bordeaux Wine Review: 2012 Chateau Sainte-Marie, Entre-Deux-Mers #3 (March 2019).
It must be juicy, fresh, tasty and, above all, well-chilled. A good summer wine tastes even with ice cubes
Because wine preferences depend on the seasons and move with them (in the fall you like to drink Beaujolais, of course sparkling wine at the end of the year), is now the ideal moment for a summer wine.
For cozy, well-being afternoons and entertaining terrace evenings with friends, who often pull themselves into the night, we need the right drink. But what exactly is behind the inspiring word "summer wine"? What does he look like, the perfect companion for the barbecue? There is a good price-performance ratio in every quality level, so it is worthwhile to look for a bit, instead of buying the first-best bottle in the supermarket.$config[ads_text] not found
An optimal summer wine tastes tasty, fruity, fresh and juicy. It is served chilled and sometimes a few pieces of ice are allowed in the glass. Even the red wine has to be put in the fridge! Since the barbecue is not about perfect harmony of wine and food, this selection is first and foremost tasty and complements the light cuisine.
