Midnight in Paris with Wine

Thank you so much to everyone that joined us for our screening of 'Midnight in Paris with Wine' at The Crescent Theatre on Saturday night. We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did!

Read on for details on all the wines from the evening, our gallery of photos, and a bunch of trivia.

As promised, these are the wines we enjoyed ...

Our French Wines on the evening

Cuvee Royale Cremant de Limoux Waitrose £12.75 (£9.49 on special offer)

Our sparkling welcome drink from the monks of St Hillaire, the inventors of sparkling wine back in 1531 who shared their mastery with monk Dom Perignon of Champagne. 70% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc and 10% Pinot Noir. A delicious drop to get us started, bursting with citrus, apple, pear, biscuit and brioche.

Kuhlman-Platz Riesling Cave de Hunawihr Alsace 2019 Majestic £12.99 (£10.99 mixed six)

Ripe pear and peach fruit, braced by a steely acidity. Clean and pure on the palate, finishing with a citrussy freshness.

La Belle Angèle Rosé Provence Majestic £8.99 (£7.49 mixed six)

Peach, raspberry, strawberry and aromas of white flowers. An easy drink, fresh and fruity rosé at an excellent price.

M&S Classics Beaujolais Village £8.00

A fruity, juicy, silky Beaujolais. Gamay grapes picked from specially designated villages representing just 25% of Beaujolais production. Flavours of raspberry, spice and violets, juicy tannins and a hint of redcurrant on the palate.

St Emillion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, Lidl £11.99

A real winner from Lidl to finish the evening. A typical right bank Bordeaux, plummy flavours in the mouth driven by this Merlot dominant blend with a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

The movie marketing and artwork was inspired by Van Gough’s Starry Night, this was beautifully depicted in Van Gough Alive, if you got a chance to see the exhibition whilst it was in Birmingham. Shot entirely in Paris, this is one of the f
