Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is fast approaching – 27th March. So what do you buy mum? We all know that finding a thoughtful gift at short notice isn’t always an easy task. Luckily, we have the answer. Say ‘thanks mum’ with a bottle of something special. Here you will find sparkling, rosé, red, dry white and sweet Bordeaux wine gift options. All of the wines can be enjoyed on their own or paired with food.

For sparkling wine lovers

Premius Crémant de Bordeaux Brut is made from Sémillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Muscadelle grapes using conventional methods. With crisp apple fruit, bread and cinnamon notes and a rounded texture – this is an attractive, fresh and balanced sparkling wine with rounded flavours. Made by traditional method, it offers fine bubbles and is best served around 10°C. What’s more – Crémant is very affordable (you can get a bottle for as little as £10) so you will have money left to spoil your mum with a bunch of flowers.

For rosé sparkling wine lovers

Did you know that Crémant de Bordeaux comes as rosé too? We suggest to gift you mum with Calvet Crémant Bordeaux Brut Rosé. With its delicate bubbles and full of freshness, Crémant de Bordeaux rosé is the perfect Mother’s Day gift! With appetising notes of nectarine, this rosé sparkling wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Muscadelle grapes. Drink well chilled on its own or with seafood or fruit-based puddings.

For rosé wine lovers

Is you mum not a fan of bubbles? – No problem. Surprise her with a beautifully rose-gold in colour, refreshing Bordeaux rosé such as Château Haut Rian. This elegant and stylish wine is made from 100% Merlot grapes and displays subtle flavours of grapefruit, rhubarb and ginger. Fine purity of fruit.

For those with a sweet tooth

We all love a sweet dessert wine. But don’t be deceived by the name – dessert wines can accompany dinner as well as dessert. Pair with sushi, spicy dishes, blue cheeses or fruit desserts. You can’t go far wrong, as long as any food eaten with a dessert wine isn’t sweeter than the wine itself. Château Gravas Sauternes 2016 ​​made from 100% Sémillon grapes. This sweet wine is complex, luscious and fresh, with a delightful floral finish. Lovely, waxy, candied, citrus-scented fruit with notes of apricot, peach and candied ginger.

For dry white wine lovers

It may surprise you, but the Bordeaux region has always produced white wines – and a lot of them are made with Sauvignon Blanc grapes! Today, 2,000 winemakers, who mostly run small estates, continue the thousand-year-old tradition of white wines in Bordeaux. Spoil you mum with a dry white Bordeaux Château George 7 Blanc 2020, made from a blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. This dry white Bordeaux is packed full of punchy, expressive fruit – citrus and white peach, notes of herbs. Very complete, multi-dimensional with a creamy texture and a long finish – delightful!

For red wine lovers

Our wine gift guide couldn’t be complete without a red Bordeaux wine. Here we suggest 2 options – a light and fruity red Bordeaux or a rich and complex red, depending on your mum’s preference.
Planning to spoil mum with a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal? The lighter style red Bordeaux La Croix D’Ardit 2019 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, and is the perfect Mother’s Day dinner companion. Packed with sweet, dense cranberry fruit, this elegant style wine, has a juicy ripe finish. Drink now or keep for a while.

Château Arnauld 2014, Haut-Médoc – a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes, this delicious red is also vegan. This glamorous wine will be a sure hit with your mum, and what’s more – it’s now at a delightful stage of development. Expect ripe, concentrated fruit, complex cedary notes and an admirably fresh, dry finish. Your mum won’t be disappointed!
