Celebrate Mother's Day With the Sotheby's Wine Selection

Finna Sze | May 11, 2023

Sotheby’s Wine invites you to celebrate Mother's Day in style with our hand-picked selection!

For a classic start to the day, pop open a bottle of the Krug non-vintage cuvée or indulge in Cristal 2012 by Louis Roederer. This blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay offers richness and complexity, with a scent of pastries, notes of vanilla, as well as pleasant toasty and smoky notes that testify to the long bottle ageing.

If you prefer white wine, we recommend the family-run Domaine Jobard. They use traditional winemaking techniques with up to 20% use of new oak and barrel-age their wines for a lengthy period on their lees. The 2018 Meursault En La Barre is a perfect choice, with its vibrant notes of white flowers, citrus, white peach, and a touch of smoke on the nose. It has a round mouth feeling with lively acidity, and pairs well with roasted chicken and cheese.

For a classic red wine, Château Pavie Decesse 2008 is an excellent choice. This blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc serves up rich black fruit, red flowers, coffee, and mineral. It is concentrated, with layers of opulent fruit, as well as ripe tannins with a long finish. In contrast, the Premier Cru Cuvée Maurice Drouhin from Hospices de Beaune shows plenty of red berries, sweet spice and a touch of rose petals. It is delicate and matches perfectly with duck or roast goose.

Finally, no Mother's Day celebration is complete without sweet wine. Whether you opt for the matured 1997 Château Coutet ‘Cuvée Madame’ from Barsac or the well-known 2009 Château Rieussec from Sauternes, both are ready to drink and will add a touch of luxury to your celebration.

We hope our selection helps make your celebration extra special and that you have a happy Mother’s Day; cheers!
