Popping the cork… on Valentine’s Day
It’s February – and love is in the air, or at least it’s swirling around in my glass! Here at Muddy Stilettos we love a romantic treat as much as the next girl, but if lacy panties or a stuffed teddies really aren’t your thing, forward your other half these much more tasty ideas from the wonderfully wine-ificient folk at Taurus Wines!
Veuve Clicquot Rosé – £39.99 Special Muddy Stilettos price £34.99 – just type in MUDDYHEART at the checkout (discount applies to one bottle per customer)
Nothing says romance like a glass of very superior pink fizz! Veuve Clicquot Rosé is possibly the oldest pink champagne in existence, having first been made in 1818 by adding a small amount of red wine to the champagne – a formula now much copied by other champagne houses. So, celebrate your love with a fizz that has lasted the centuries… perhaps with its perfect food match – fresh oysters!
Alcyone Tannat – £24.99 (50cl)
Now here’s the solution to that eternal problem; which indulgence to go for – wine or chocolate? Well, this unctuously smooth wine is the answer – as its distinct cocoa flavour means it’s like liquid chocolate in a glass. Perfect with oozing, chocolate puddings, or just poured over vanilla ice-cream as the finale to your decadent Valentine’s Day supper.
La Vie en Rose Rosé – £8.99
For those who see the world though rose-tinted spectacles – a glass of this southern French rosй with its red berry flavours and hints of white peach will go down a treat! Spoil someone with a bunch of roses and a bottle of La Vie en Rose – and toast to a rosy future together!
