Pinot Noir: Sainsbury’s Bouchard Aine et Fils
£7.50 from Sainsbury's, this Pinot Noir is suitable for vegans, but unfortunately fell short on taste for a Pinot fan. A little rough around the edges with not much fruit, it did improve after some breathing time though!
Vegan Wine and Food Pairing: Butternut Squash Ravioli with Champagne
Move over oysters - pairing champagne with vegetables is so much more interesting. Homemade butternut squash and sage ravioli matched with Charles Heidsieck so beautifully, there should have been a second bottle opened to celebrate!
Red Sparkling Wine: Roc’ AmBulle, Frontonnais (France)
Summer is here (sometimes, anyway) so it's time to celebrate, with barbecues and a glass of something unusual. Enter, Roc' Ambulle: a French sparkling wine....that's red! Blindfolded, you'd think this was fruit cider by the smell, but don't let it deceive you. Made from the local grape of Toulouse, t's remarkably dry and refreshing, and the perfect match for vegan barbecued tempeh kebabs, and chargrilled vegetables.
Chardonnay: Louis Latour Ardeche 2015
Chardonnay is a little like the marmite of the wine world. It can be a beautiful wine however, and a lovely example of a vegan unoaked Chardonnay is Louis Latour’s Ardeche.
