Another MCR 1st – Prestige Cuvées by the glass & other good stuff…

We’ve got some top tastings lined up for you – a free Franciacorta tasting, 3 prestige cuvées by the glass and the divine 50&50 by Avignonesi & Campannelle in our Enomatics.

This Friday 22nd July we have 3 styles of Franciacorta for you to try for free, a Saten, a brut and a rosé. Franciacorta is the lesser known fizz to come from Italy, unjustly so! It is made in the same way as Champagne, but with less acidity and it has longer ageing requirements, resulting in a beautifully soft and elegant fizz. Once you’ve tried it you’ll never look back.

We are pretty sure this has never been seen in Manchester before. On the weekend of the 29th July, a rare chance to try three prestige cuvées by the glass. Krug, Belle Époque Rosé & Dom Perignon. You’ll be able to try 50ml of each to compare, or indulge in a full glass. The Krug will be £11 for 50ml and £27.50 for a 125ml glass, Belle Époque Rosé will be £12.00 for 50ml and £30 for a 125ml glass, and the Dom Perignon will be £10.50 for 50ml and £26.50 for a 125ml glass.

Also on the 29th July for Fine Wine Friday it’s over to Tuscany. We’re putting the divine 50&50 by Avignonesi & Campannelle in our machines. You will not find this wine anywhere else in the city centre. A deep, dark ruby colour the 2010 vintage is elegant & refined, with fresh notes of red and black berries, backed up by sweet spices and an underlying, balsamic touch. This wine is full-bodied and silky soft, with an elegant, fruity core and a long lingering, pleasantly dry finish.

Yum! See you there.
