The Majestic Easter-Egg Hunt

The Easter Bunny has been spotted at Majestic. Our store teams have been chasing after him, hoping his little fluffy tail and flopsy ears don’t knock over any bottles as he hops around our stores, hiding his treasure.

While looking for wines to drink over Easter, keep your eyes peeled in store for eggs hidden amongst them! We hear the Easter Bunny will be squirelling away chocolatey treats amongst the wine through this week to Monday 21st March. He must be a busy bunny, because he’s somehow getting around all of our stores!

If hunting for bunnies and chocolate while perusing for wine gets a bit too much for you, stop by our tasting counter and enjoy a tipple of one of our Easter Star Buys. We’ll have some brilliant wines open to taste!

Reds

Côtes du Rhône, Etienne Guigal 2012

E Guigal Cotes Du Rhone

Guigal is a master of the Rhône, and his entry-point Côtes-du-Rhône is a benchmark for the style.  Elegant black fruits, a touch of pepper spice and silky, soothing texture.

Rioja Reserva CVNE 2011

CVNE Rioja Reserva Spain

The Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE) was founded in 1879 and remains a family-owned winery.  They’ve built a loyal following amongst Majestic customers (and staff), and their excellent Reserva shows why. Soft, warming, luxurious and smooth – vanilla, coconut and toasted wood-spice leading to a delicious raspberry and blackberry mouthful of delight.  Brilliant with a lamb rack!

Whites

The Ned Sauvignon Blanc 2014/2015

The Ned Sauvignon Blanc

Our biggest-selling white wine by a long-shot! The Ned is a brilliant New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, packed with gooseberry, passionfruit, lime, and herbal grassy aromas.  Aromatic, fresh and fruity – what’s not to like?

Mâcon-Lugny Louis Latour 2014

Macon Lugny Louis Latour

Louis Latour are Burgundy’s top Negociant house, with access to some of the best grapes and vineyards in the region.  Their wines are consistently excellent across the board, and their Mâcon-Lugny, while humble by Burgundian standards, is impeccably made and does everything a good white Burgundy should.  Citrus, white peach and a touch of stone fruits with a touch of creaminess to the wine’s texture.

Fizz

Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOGC Extra Dry NV

 

Some of the very best Prosecco comes from Conegliano Valdobbiadene, in vineyards nestling between the two towns in the Treviso province.  Extra Dry is, thanks to the vagaries of translation, actually slightly off-dry, but that’s in Prosecco’s favour, giving a lush fruitiness to this endlessly sippable and refreshing fizz.

J de Telmont Grande Réserve NV Champagne

J De Telmont Champagne

Most of the time, if you say entry-level Champagne you can assume it’s Champagne in name only.  Not so with J De Telmont.  There’s a very good reason this has remained a part of the Majestic range for close to 35 years – it’s fantastic value backed up with great quality.  A rare prize.

You’d be hopping mad to miss out on all these wines. (Sorry) Find your local store here and hop on by!
