This Sunday we will be tasting two lovely French wines.
2010 Routas Wild Boar $10
64% Viognier, 36% Chardonnay
Straight from our Coteaux Varois estate vineyards of clay and limestone soils. And named for the wild boars residing in the enormous forests of Aleppo pine and oak that bracket our Routas vineyards. A crisp and fruity, summery white.
2011 Château La Croix du Duc Bordeaux $10
80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
A nice minerally entry Bordeaux, this is a fruity, supple and soft wine with nice red fruit aromas intertwined with light toasted notes and soft tannins. Drink with red meats and cheese. 12.5% alcohol per volume.
