is almost upon us and if you’re anything like me, you’ve known Dad for so long now that you’re running out of gift ideas for him. Thankfully my Dad loves his red wine
so this year I’m planning on treating him to Chateau Chantelune Margaux 2009
. Not only will I be serving the wine but I also plan to cook the perfect meal
to go with it too.

Marinated Juicy Pork Ribs
It comes courtesy of mylittleitaliankitchen.com
and you can see full details of the recipe there. With this recipe it is so simple to produce a flavoursome, hearty dish because the marinade does all the work for you. In a nutshell, make the marinade, leave the meat resting in it, then cook. The recipe suggests you cook it in the oven but if we all keep our fingers crossed firmly enough, we may even get sunshine for Father’s Day. And that, of course, means a barbeque
. The ribs work just as well on the grill as they do in the oven so why not treat Dad to a family meal in the garden with Chateau Chantelune Margaux 2009 (that is if you can wrestle him away from the barbeque long enough to cook for him).

Chateau Chantelune Margaux 2009
The reason this wine works perfectly is down to its affinity with rich meat dishes, the slight sweetness in the dish and the wine, and the spicyness in both which balance and compliment. The wine has fruity sweetness in the form of forest berries and dark fruits, spiciness and warmth from the time spent maturing in oak barrels and a wonderfully smooth texture and mouthfilling density. Chateau Chantelune 2009 is a real treat your Dad will love and is available solely at the Perfect Cellar online and at The Clerkenwell Collection.
