Two outstanding French wines under the Félicette label - named in memory of the first cat in space. Affectionately known in store as the space-cat wine, they're presented in a wooden gift box from sustainable sources.
Félicette Grenache Blanc
Bright yellow colour with green highlights. An intense but fresh bouquet combining mint, pear, dry apricot and white flowers. A wonderfully fresh palate of mango and a hint of spice leading into a crispy lime zest finish.
Félicette Grenache Noir
A bright red colour with purplish reflections. A powerful nose of banana and rum, sweet spices and hint of vanilla. Very tasty in the mouth with cloves and violet aromas. Medium-bodied on the palate, soft and juicy.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
It is often said that there are more people who have travelled to space than there are Masters of Wine, and while that may be very true, there are many more MW's than there are cosmic cats. In a uniquely Gallic surge of innovation, 1963 witnessed France entering the feline space race via a cat named Félicette. Now immortalised on a wine that pays homage to those that think outside the box, Felicette is for all those who dream to be a little different. An elegant supple, succulent and aromatic Grenache Rouge, and a mineral, crisp, and fresh Grenache Blanc, both IGP Pays d'Oc and indigenous to the region. Both have been carefully crafted to be subtle, sassy and food friendly.
