NEW YORK, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stories of summer sipping and entertaining will soon be plentiful, but with the first blooms peeking through the snow, who wants to wait that long? To celebrate these first rays of sunshine and the coming spring, Georges Duboeuf wines and food blogger Phoebe Lapine partnered up to offer the perfect excuse (and recipes!) to throw a fun dinner or brunch for friends and family.
Known for her creative, healthful and deeply satisfying cooking, Lapine creates delicious recipes for any season that just happen to pair perfectly with Les Vins Georges Duboeuf. Take, for instance, the Georges Duboeuf Fleurie Flower Label ( $15.99) - an elegant and velvety Beaujolais wine, best served slightly chilled, that evokes decadent flowers like violets and roses, along with notes of berries and black currant. Enjoyable year-round, this is the perfect wine to satisfy a lingering craving for comforting fare with an eye towards the fresher flavors of the season to come. Serve the Fleurie with Lapine's Seared Salmon with Green Sauce for a great combination of rich texture and fresh flavor.
As the weather warms up, a white wine like the Georges Duboeuf Pouilly-Fuisse Flower Label 2011 ($19.99) is sure to satisfy with aromas of white flowers, verbena and vanilla on the nose and flavors of honey, pears and nuts on the palate. Made from 100% Chardonnay, this Pouilly-Fuisse screams to be paired with spring brunch dishes like Lapine's Zucchini Shallot Frittata.
You really don't need a special occasion to enjoy a glass of Georges Duboeuf wines. But, if you insist, why not celebrate the arrival of spring and pair these delicious dishes with a silky Fleurie or a crisp Pouilly-Fuisse? Prepare your senses for the coming flowers and fruit with the lively, fresh flavors of Georges Duboeuf wines. With such reasonable prices, there is no better reason to shake off winter's chill and toast to spring!To request more information, please contact Caroline Helper, CRT/tanaka at email@example.com or call 646-218-6022.
