Wine for Easter? Plenty to choose from across the wine regions.

If you are dining at home this Easter or even better, visiting family (where you won't have to do the wash-up), you'll probably need a nice wine with the Dinner!   But what to have?
There are lots of opinions out there but the consensus does lead to the classic varieties!

Roast Lamb is a favourite at Easter and luckily for us lots of wines work well with it. 
Bordeaux Left Bank (Haut Medoc etc) comes into it's own here as the Cabernet Sauvignon based wines offer fruity cassis flavours, a touch of spice and light traces of oak.
Suitable wines here include:
Chateau La Bridane 2017 Saint Julien
Chateau Beaumont 2019, Cru Bourgeois Supérieur (with extra Tasting Twist options!)
or for a real treat
La Dame de Montrose 2017 Saint Estephe

Roast Lamb also works really well with Northern Rhone wines. These Syrah dominant wines offer a little extra spice that accentuates the flavours. 
Try Crozes Hermitage 2020 Alain Graillot in this case.

The Southern Rhone has Grenache in the blend (with Syrah) etc and these work really well also. They also have the benefit of working well with other cuts of Lamb (slow cooked shoulder etc).
Vacqueyras 2019 Domaine de la Charbonniere is a favourite of ours, or
Chateauneuf-du-pape 2020 Chante Perdrix (93 points Wine Advocate)

Prefer Spanish, then Rioja Reserva is perfect, as they are ready to drink upon release
Vina Alberdi Reserva 2019, La Rioja Alta is a surefire hit!

There is an argument out there in the greater 'Wine Nerd' universe that Pinot Noir works best with Rare/Pink Lamb.    If you agree - and it's hard not to - then
Bourgogne Rouge 2021, Domaine Thierry Mortet or
Nuits St Georges 2017 Domaine Alain Michelot will hit the spot - depending on your budget!

Of course, there are lots of other suitable wines .... but I have to do some work now .....
