April is a month that makes me truly hungry. The days are brighter, we all start to get a little more active outdoors, and the first spring bounty shows up in markets. I’m inspired to cook, and hope that you are too. I’ve chosen some favourite wines that stimulate the appetite for this month’s selections. Château La Nerthe (pronounced ‘Nert’) is one of the most historic estates in the southern Rhône Valley region of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Startling vineyards are carpeted with smooth and round rocks (stones that range from rugby ball size to golf balls) giving meagre life to vines. It’s a profound region, making mostly red blends (Grenache is the king of grapes here), and a precious few whites. I have selected one of each colour in April’s pack for you to compare and contrast, and get a lock on the terroir signature of this articulate region. Sear, then pan roast some thick veal chops, perhaps, and open a bottle of each. I’ve also picked a crazy outlier from the Champagne region – not sparkling as you’d expect, but a still Pinot Noir made by the fabulous grower Champagne house of Pierre Paillard. From a vineyard rated Grand Cru, it combines delicate, silky fruit with a powerful, chalky presence. If you love Pinot Noir, you’ll be fascinated by this enchanter from the Coteaux Champenois. Duck, pâté, rich cheese, salmon, creamed leeks, wild mushroom ragoût - this wine is ultra-adaptable with Spring cuisine.
