Le Paradis sur l’eau : la Foire aux vins 2016

La Foire aux vins, organisée par la Coop, revient cette année encore. Chaque jour, l’un de nos anges vous fera déguster nos nectars divins sur le Bateau Genève.

Pas de panique, le bateau est amarré sur le quai… donc le mal de mer n’est pas au programme! Mais alors c’est quoi l’idée? La Foire aux vins, c’est une dégustation gratuite (à moins que tu fasse partie des 1% de genevois qui n’ont pas la supercard et dans ce cas tu paieras chf 10.-) de plus de 300 vins des meilleures caves du monde! Ou de l’univers, on ne sait plus trop…

Au Paradis, on exile chaque jour l’un de nos anges sur l’eau, pour qu’il puisse vous faire goûter une belle sélection de nos vins. Il paraît même que cette année, il y a aura quelques nectars inédits sur notre stand… on vous laisse deviner lesquels!

Alors, on se voit là-bas?

    Why do we like it?

    Because it is a wine full of exotic, floral flavours with a dominance of grapefruit. On the palate, our Aligoté is rich with the freshness of citrus fruit and a lemony touch, and even a salty finish. It is the ideal companion to freshwater fish, warm cheeses or fresh mushrooms.

    Because it’s a Grenache far from its homelands, and with its adoptive Genevan parents, it reveals a wine bursting with summery pleasures. Along with playful grills and crazy salads, it’ll transport you to heaven... Here, it offers us aromas of cherry and garrigue, which will make you fall head over heels for this crisp wine.

    Why do we like it?

    This “new” Swiss varietal, the brother of the Gamaret, gives us a real hit of spices such as anise and pepper, with notes of overripe plum. It’s hot and round on the palate, with silky and balanced tannins. An ideal mate for roast meats or Italian dishes.

    Why do we like it?

    Because this blend of three varieties and two different vinifications gives us a quite simply divine wine! Its dark coat, its aromas of liquorice, eucalyptus and dark fruits create a warm, spicy and rich wine, with chocolate notes and silky tannins. An already round wine, supple and harmonious, to drink straight away with plenty of food, but above all, pleasure!

    Why do we like it?

    Because Viognier has all the allure of the Costa-du-Rhone!! With aromas of peach, apricot and white flowers, its rich and heady palate of fruit and flowers, it makes you forget just for a moment, that anything else around you exists. So that you like it too, it will be enough for you to marry it with your saffron fish, your cheeses and even some desserts.
