TALES FROM A TASTING
Without even opening this bottle of wine, I internalized the heavy French vibe that comes from the tradition of and process of becoming a Gran Cru, the top-ranked burgandy wine. So classic and refined, so I poised myself like Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. Calm, cool, and collected, I planned to breathe in the wine and internalize the French je ne sais quoi. Sort of like this…
But, after tasting the wine, I felt a bit more like this…
Cherry burst onto my tongue with a welcomed gentle cover of tannins. This wine is delightful! I highly recommend letting it breathe in the glass. For the price point, this was an excellent value for a Bordeaux.
Because this wine was fun and not stuffy, I paired it with something a little unusual, but that ended up being a spectacular match – Beef Barbacoa tacos made in an Instant Pot.
Check out the recipe, and on the way to the grocery store, stop by Post Road Liquors, or any of their sister stores for the fun French wine!
