Father’s Day should not be about expensive gifts but rather about making your dad feel cherished. And while a heartfelt thank you and his preferred lunch should make him happy, wrapping up his favourite bottle of wine, can only make him feel extra special.
La Motte has just released the 2012 vintage of its classic and well-known Bordeaux-style blend, Millennium. With its dusty, earthy nose with raspberry and mulberry fruit, cinnamon spice and a hint of mint, it will be a treasured gift.
2012 La Motte Millennium
A versatile partner to food, the 2012 La Motte Millennium at once offers complex flavours as well as a velvety and juicy palate and while it will mature beautifully it will be tempting to open for Father’s day lunch!
