Drinks fit for a King!
This Coronation WEEKEND, Olly pairs the drinks for the ultimate Coronation dinner party recipes.
Olly’s wine pairing: Busi Jacobsohn Rosé 2019 (12%) £39.75, yapp.co.uk
This pink English fizz is the definition of ‘finesse’: dancing with summer fruit and from a stellar vintage, it’s fit for a king and has the right richness to stand up to Eggs Drumkilbo.
Cutlets of Windsor Lamb with Sauce Paloise
Olly’s wine pairing: Cabardes Terroirs d’Altitude Chateau de Pennautier 2018 (14.5%) £11.50, thewinesociety.com
Complex, mature and delicious, this red has all the silky quality of higher-priced classics, plus a truffly richness that’s bang on for lamb.
Olly’s wine pairing: Langham Blanc de Blancs NV (12%) £39.95, langhamwine.co.uk
A whirl of bright vigour and tension laced with hints of cookie dough, this brand new release is just wonderful with langoustines – and will also age beautifully.
Apricot Crepes Soufflé
Olly’s wine pairing: Coolhurst Demi-Sec Rosé 2017 (12%) £42, coolhurstvineyards.com
A sensational Sussex bubbly that’s off-dry and irresistibly fruity – think rhubarb dusted with icing sugar – this is especially delightful as a partner for the Apricot Crêpes Soufflé.
Chocolate Biscuit Cake
Olly’s wine pairing: Waitrose No.1, 8 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky (40%) £23, 70cl
Aged in bourbon casks for a natural sweetness that’s spot on for biscuit cake, this whisky has a delicate, peaty creaminess as well as a hint of fudge.
