Perfect Pairings: Young Love & Spicy Red Wine | Episode One

Recommended
Brought to you by Domaine Wardy Logo

Hello December.
Hello cold weather.
Hello warm holiday shenanigans.

We love the Holiday Season.

It's that time of the year that brings loved ones together - and what could be better than hanging out with your special someone all cozy and warm, over a great bottle of wine.

If you're on the lookout to try a new one this season, then you're in the right place.

We asked our friends over at Domaine Wardy to recommend 3 of their favorite bottles for the holiday season. We then paired each bottle with 3 loved-up couples that best represent each type of wine, for nothing other than your enjoyment.

We dressed the couples with outfits from local stores here in Beirut, and invited them over for a Domaine Wardy wine-filled evening, complete with a cheese that we also paired with each wine (and tried to do it all in the most non-cheesy way possible :)).

Without further ado meet our first pair.

Episode 1: Young Love & Spicy Red Wine

Cynthia, Walid & Château Les Cèdres

Cynthia and Walid are good friends of ours, and we couldn't think of anyone better to represent our first episode on young love.

The couple is newly engaged, Walid proposed to Cynthia after a year of dating on top of a chalky mountain in Greece, and she said yes.

Young love: when it's true, it hits fast and you can spot it a mile away.

Young love is also tantalizing and spicy, similar to this Domaine Wardy bottle, Château Les Cèdres.

It's a rich and complex red wine with the firm earthy core of Cabernet Sauvignon, interwoven with the deep peppery aromas of Shiraz and the subtle fruity flavors of Merlot. Château Les Cèdres is matured in new French oak which enhances the harmony and adds a smooth woody finish.

Recommended Cheese Pairing: Brie de Meaux

We asked the guys over at Domaine Wardy to recommend the best cheese to pair with Château Les Cèdres and Brie de Meaux it was.

This brie is a rich and creamy cheese underlined by a buttery sweet taste. It goes perfectly with the rich and complex nature of Château Les Cèdres - which is absolutely delicious by the way. We're not just saying that, do grab a bottle this holiday season and try it out.
