Shades of ruby and garnet, lovely floral aromas and hints of warm spices make Chénas an ideal wine to celebrate the season with. Serve it slightly chilled to perk up cocktail parties, or feature it with holiday feasts – Chénas will carry you all the way through to the New Year.
Lentil salad is a simple yet fulfilling dish, and a real favorite in Beaujolais. But this holiday, you may want to serve your guests something warmer as a side. A rustic lentil soup should do the trick. Best of all, your vegetarian friends can help themselves to another serving as the table enjoys the ham or turkey.
Never made it before? That’s okay, there’s a recipe down below. Just make sure not to overchill the Chénas before serving this one, as you might mask the soup’s spices by doing so.
