Sunday we have a pair of very affordable wines from the Lanquedoc by Pech Céleyran.
.2014 Pech Céleyran Cuvée Ombline Blanc $9
Chardonnay, Viognier, and Muscat
A blend that exceeds it parts. The nose is composed of aromas of white flowers, grapefruit, with a hint of almond. In the mouth, it is fresh, fruity, with a beautiful roundness.
2016 Pech Céleyran Cuvée Ombline Rouge $9
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec
Balanced and delicious, this blend has inviting notes of red berry, fresh herbs, plum, blackberry and a hint of leather. Cuvée Ombline is sustainably-grown, hand-picked and an excellent value.
