‘Classy’ is probably not the first adjective that comes to mind when talking box wine, but although I’m still quite new to the wine world (and think I always will be, there’s just so much unexplored territory), I dare say its reputation has changed somewhat over the last few years. The boxes are better looking these days (smaller and easier to handle) and it’s not asuncool anymore to be seen with one 😉
Pierre Deschamps Sancerre’s box wine does not only look pretty, but also contains some lovely tasting white. It’s fresh and filled with plenty of flavour and not too sweet. In fact, it’s apparently of the dry kind, which surprised me a little. I would’ve put it somewhere in between, But then again, what do I know! To me it simply tasted summer, and with the heat we’re having these days (30+, what happened to you Norway?), I can’t think of anything better than a glass of super chilled white.
So if you’re having people over this weekend or you don’t think a bottle is enough for whatever the occasion, get one of these and you’re sorted!
PS: I’m fully aware this isn’t the first Wednesday of the month, which is my dedicated ‘Wine Wednesday’ day, but I didn’t want to wait until the summer was over to share this one with you. In fact, I might even share another wine tip with you next Wednesday, and it’ll probably be a rosé, which would be a first for this blog!
