This past week has been heavy in emotion. The roller coaster of the US election, then the death of music legend Leonard Cohen. Add to that the days that are now getting darker and shorter. Well, we've got something that will brighten your day - free shipping from Benjamin Bridge! There is just something about bubbles that always makes you feel better.
Lily Bollinger of Bollinger said it so well: “I drink Champagne when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it -- unless I'm thirsty.” But it’s not Champagne that I recommend drinking to lift your spirit. I don’t know about you but I have never been more proud to be Canadian than during this past week. So I propose a toast to our wonderful country with the stunning bubbles from acclaimed sparkling wine producer Benjamin Bridge in Nova Scotia.
Another reason to feel proud. Benjamin Bridge is offering you an unprecedented deal on their premium wines with free shipping this week on 6+ bottles. This is an excellent occasion to stock up for the holidays - take advantage now, because this deal won't be coming around again anytime soon.
A unique and delicious sparkling blend of Chardonnay, Acadie Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, Seyval Blanc and Vidal. Bright with slightly floral and lip smacking lemon rind notes. Easy to drink and the perfect match with canapés, sweet (and savoury) holiday treats, and sushi. A great bubbly to uncork anytime at a guilt-free price. Now that’s a way to make your day brighter.
A classic blend of 43% Pinot Meunier, 42% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay. The colour alone makes you feel instantly better, especially on dark, chilly days. Charming notes of strawberries, rhubarb with generous notes of brioche. Enjoy as an apéritif with some pâtés or at the table with salmon or tuna tartare.
Another blend that can be found only in Canada (lucky for us!): 42% Acadie Blanc, 40% Seyval, 10% Pinot Noir, and 8% Chardonnay. Seductive with notes of lemon, toast, white flowers, red currant and a pleasant touch of minerality on the finish. This has to be the oyster’s wine; they are in season and this bottle is just perfect for it!
La crème de la crème and worth every penny. Rich yet light on its feet with complex notes of brioche, marzipan and red currant. If you really want to spoil yourself and your loved ones, serve with Gougères. They are highly addictive french choux pastries made with Gruyère cheese. They are easy to make and Alain Ducasse has the perfect receipe for you right here.
