Mondays suck. That we know. But there are a number of solutions. Chief among them? Wine.
Read on for five such magic potions that will cure any attack of the Monday blues. Available for delivery on the BottlesXO app now.
Guado al Melo Rute Bolgheri
A classic “Super Tuscan”, the name given to certain special Italian reds from the Bolgheri region that are made with blends typical of Bordeaux, France. These wines have won a lot of international awards, and this one shows why. It’s an elegant, complex but welcoming bottle with hints of red currant and raspberry and a warming character that’s perfect for the season.
Kurt Angerer Kies Grüner Veltliner
A fresh and fruity white wine with just enough sweetness to fix the sourest workday. Grüner Veltliner, Austria’s best known grape, might not the most famous in the world. But if you’ve never tried it, you’re missing out. In fact in many blind tastings the grape has beaten acclaimed Grand Cru white and some world-class Chardonnays.
Hazaña Rioja Viñas Vieja
For any fan of Spanish red wine, or red wine in general, this is must try and a guaranteed Monday mood-booster. It’s acclaimed, with a rating of 92 from Robert Parker. In his review, he called the bottle “a perfect synthesis of the traditional and more progressive styles of Rioja”, complimenting the bottle’s depth and elegance. He even called it “beautiful”; we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Alain Geoffroy Chablis
If any white wine has the power to save the start of your week, then it’s this one. Impossibly fresh and crisp with fruity, floral flavors, this Chablis (a special kind of Chardonnay wine made in a small region of Burgundy) is seriously special. The experts over at WineFolly.com have called Chablis the “crack-cocaine of white Burgundy” – strong words, but we kind of have to agree.
Famille Perrin L’Oustalet Red
Sometimes something simple is just what you need. This smooth, refreshing red wine is 100% organic created by Famille Perrin (one of France’s foremost organic wineries), a perfect pick-me-up with flavors of ripe red cherries and just a hint of spice.
