How about a unique bottle of wine to toast the Mid Autumn Festival on September 29th?

The Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated throughout Asia under a variety of names, including Chuseok, Tsukimi, Moon Festival, and Harvest Moon Festival.

Mid Autumn Festival, celebrated under the brightest and fullest moon of the year, carries a profound meaning in Asian culture. This festival is a much-loved annual custom that commemorates success, family reunion, and gratitude for the year’s harvest.

Along with the delicious mooncakes and brightly lit lanterns, people usually put together a scrumptious dinner with grilled or stew meat or roasted root vegetables. On such occasions, a fine wine is the perfect way to make long-lasting memories on the shiny mid-autumn moonlit night. At VinoVoss, we have chosen three outstanding world-class wines to take your Mid Autumn Festival celebrations to the next level.

First on the list is the magnificent Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne. This sophisticated blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is sure to add a sparkle to your Mid Autumn Festival. The Champagne has elegant notes of lemon, peach, melon, green apple, almonds, and a subtle hint of toastiness, which pairs perfectly with the delicate flavors of mooncakes. The unique fresh and silky texture of Louis Roederer Cristal will complement the traditional festival delights, creating a harmonious blend of joy and celebration

Penfolds Grange

Next, we bring to you the extraordinary Penfolds Grange, an Australian icon, highly suitable for the glorious autumn season.The Grange is renowned for its intense black and red fruit flavors, spice, liquorice, and harmoniously integrated oak. It has a captivating tone to it that reflects the spirit of family and friends at the Mid Autumn Festival. This classic wine’s complex flavor pairs well with the many Asian foods, such as barbeque pork, roasted goose, grilled lambs and more. This sophisticated wine will definitely enhance the gastronomic experience.

Lafite Rothschild Carruades de Lafite

Finally, for those who enjoy red wine, we recommend the legendary Lafite Rothschild Carruades de Lafite. This second wine of Château Lafite Rothschild hails from the prestigious vineyards of Bordeaux and offers an intriguing combination of richness and complexity. The Carruades de Lafite captivates the palate with its smooth tannins and balanced acidity, displaying an excellent blend of dark cherries, cedar, and earthy overtones.

The biggest highlight of this wine is that it can be enjoyed young and has great potential to age further. If you’re looking to buy a wine to enjoy now, this is the perfect choice. The wine also pairs well with the complex flavors of many Asian cuisines.

Remember, the joy of the festival lies in sharing. So whether you choose the exclusive Louis Roederer Cristal, the iconic Penfolds Grange or the enchanting Carruades de Lafite, you should keep in mind the words from one of the most famous wine critic Robert Parker–”The best wine is not necessarily the most expensive, but the one we share.”

As the moon shines high, and lanterns light up the night sky, raise a swirl of fine wine. Cheers to a delightful, heartwarming Mid-Autumn Festival!
