Which wine to choose for a first date?

With your legs numb and your heart pounding, it's not always easy to make the right choice when it comes to deciding what to drink on a first date. Today, we're giving you all our secrets for a successful first meeting!

Let's attack the problem in a thoughtful way. To hell with feelings and memories that could prove risky or even counterproductive. We're looking for results, aren't we? If the term "first date" seems clear enough, we will consider this - for more spice - as a date.

All we have to do now is extend the question. Because the real question, the one that will allow us to start out on a sound reasoning, is "with whom". Because everything is there! So of course some will argue that the first date is precisely the opportunity to show who we are. It is understood and it is indeed delicate. The simplest method is to consider that any woman can be "classified" in one of the following 6 categories. It is vulgar, shameful, we agree but it is necessary for our demonstration, without counting that we will accept without too much vehemence that one does the same with the opposite sex. Then, you will only have to do a preliminary work of observation, classify and the answer will be there in front of you, brilliant, astonishingly simple, beautifully mathematical.

The Bourgeois

Can you imagine being courted without the most romantic bubbles in the world? Unthinkable for the bourgeoisie! However, no need to tire of trying to find the confidential Champagne. Take over a brand, here it is not the taste that counts but the respect of the label. A consensual Moët (the same as Daddy's) will win his trust. Or try a Pol Roger Pure, more raw, but beware, you're already starting to become revolutionary...

The nerd

The risk with the nerd is that she leaves on themes that you don't master. The choice of the bottle will allow you to direct the discussion, strategist that you are! Revise your Latin course on ancient Rome and its practical philosophies (epicureanism, hedonism, this could inspire the rest of the evening) and let's go with the Carpe Diem cuvée from Domaine de Laballe. A great wine from the South-West with a fresh and light attack: you will not be able to miss this quiet cuvée with an intense nose.

The shy one

So this is about being delicate, considerate and attentive. Wine can help you put the shy person at ease in two ways. The first, most obvious, is that the few grams of alcohol contained in our "dive bottle" soothes and relaxes. The second way to put at ease is through the message the bottle sends. The cuvée La Passion des Anges from Domaine Saint Laurent in Côtes du Rhône will lay the foundations for a successful evening with its evocative name.

The artist

The artist is a little like the nerd, be careful not to get caught up in subjects that escape us. So revise your René Magritte bio and bring out the Marius Blanc cuvée from Domaine de la Dourbie in the Languedoc. The Roussane of this wine will leave your partner speechless!

The nympho

Cliche, cliche, cliche. Don't be shy, establish a certain complicity and complicity from the very first moments with the "Grololo" vintage from the excellent Pithon-Paillé estate. A fruity, generous and digestible grolleau. What a pleasure!

The adventuress

No need to go to Lavinia to find the latest wine from Brazil, Mexico or Tahiti! We have everything you need in France. Nothing better for an adventuress than a taste discovery: a wine made from Syrah. The cuvée L'aventure du Château Valmont en Corbières is astonishing with its bewitching purple colour and a length in the mouth that leaves no one indifferent. Moreover the name of the vintage is doubly in the theme ...


As an epilogue, we would like to specify that the list below is not exhaustive. The best way to find the wines you will need for your future personal or professional appointments is of course to go and taste them at their producers. So gentlemen, don't wait any longer and go and meet our winemakers to find the wine you need!
