Wine is a collectible item very appreciated in France, easily exported abroad. There are many wine collectors but even more wine tasters, therefor it is one of those gifts which should not be overlooked for a birthday, a retirement party or a simple celebration. In short, every occasion is an opportunity to offer a bottle of wine ! 2019 is fast approaching and a focus on wines in 9 seems obvious. This vintaged gift combines the symbolic aspect of honoring the year and the pure gustatory side.
There has been 11 years in 9 since the 1900s and the 12th one is fast approaching. If you have a friend, relative or partner whose birthday is just around the corner, marking the occasion with a bottle of wine to celebrate his or her decade is a creative idea, especially for a wine lover.
Synonym of conviviality, authenticity and celebration, you can be sure not to disappoint ! As long as you choose wisely... How will you do so ?
Bordeaux ? Bourgogne ? Vallée du Rhône ? Foreign wine ? Red or white wine ? There are many choices and that can be disarming. How will know if you made the right choice among all these high-quality vintages ?
It seems obvious that knowing the person's preferences should influence your choice. After all, red wine often resonates well with this kind of event.
Certain Bordeaux, Bourgogne or Vallée du Rhône appellations will satisfy a classic wine lover who will be delighted to receive a vintaged Pomerol, Margaux, Vaqueyras, Chateauneuf du Pape..etc. A foreign wine, however, will create a surprise, as will a vintaged whisky or rum. Same goes for a fine cuvée of Champagne.
