Celebrating Women with Chocolate… & Bubbles

May is the month where we celebrate mother’s, and we want to extend this to all of the women in our lives that inspire, mentor and support us.

The BLOOM Collection features six floral inspired flavours, and what better way to celebrate the fine women in our loves than with chocolate… and bubbles!  We asked Sasha McCauley, Fairy Booze Mother and JACEK’s go-to for any pairing advice, to suggest a wine that would pair well with this limited edition collection.  She suggested the Antech Emotion Rosé, which is not only stunning, but even more perfect for this collection as strong women have been the driving force behind Antech for the last three generations of the winery.  Francoise Antech, the current winemaker, exudes strength and is one of France’s more vocal and gregarious female winemakers.  Cheers to that!

Here are the details about the wine:

TASTING NOTES

With a delicate pink/salmon color, with brilliant highlights. On the nose it has nice flavors of red fruits and spring flowers. The mouth is fresh and fruity, with elegance and persistence. A glass of Emotion Rosé can serve as an excellent alternative to a pre-dinner cocktail.
