Review: 2012 Marie De Beauregard Chinon - Saget La Perriere - France


A lighter red perfect for summer fare.

I don't care how hot it is outside, it's hot, I'm still grilling. My grill is getting a solid workout this summer and I've developed a farmers tan from standing outside turning burgers, steaks and dogs. That's okay with me as long as I have a chilled wine to go with my meals. When I eat red meat, I prefer red wine. But it is hot outside. A good option for summer heat is to pair with chilled, lighter bodied red wines. This Loire Valley Cabernet Franc will please many. It has flavor, depth, character and held up well over two days. Bring this wine home for the table.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Garnet.
Nose: Fragrant, chalky cherry, raspberry, earthiness, white pepper.
Palate: Medium weight, light mid-palate, thin cherry, light finish.
10 minutes: Pleasantly dry, modest cherry finish. All the action on the nose. Serve chilled with aperitifs. Seafood would be appropriate.
2.5 hours: Fluid, bacon fat, Cherry, currant, cola, dry on the tongue, evened out. Satisfying table wine, put me in an introspective mood.
Day two: Darker, fuller, tar, coffee, pepper, dry Bing cherry, pips, cola, dry cherry finish. Good grip. Good match to baby back ribs. Well done. Recommended.

Blend:100% Cabernet Franc
Closure: Natural cork
Winemaker: Bruno Mineur

My Favorite Recipe | Flourless Chocolate Torte

Satisfying those chocolate cravings. My Instagram followers have seen me post photos ( @wild4wawine ) of my favorite dessert for over a year. Possibly, I've posted the original recipe to Instagram.

Yes, I've been gently tweaking the recipe. Adjusting ingredients. Modifying and streamlining the process. With mixed results.

Answer: Sweet Bordeaux | Question: Which French Wine Pairs with Salty, Savory and Heat?

Category: Delicious Wine and Food Pairings Since last year, I have found myself drinking more sweet white wines. And not with or as dessert. I've become quite fond of pairing sweet and medium sweet white wines with lunch and dinner. Not any sweet wine will do. You need a quality wine with complexity, sugar yes, but the wine also needs balanced acidity to match with the food. And the wine must be tasty too. I'm referring to the sweet white wines of Bordeaux, France. Sweet Bordeaux wines deepen in color with age. Sweet Bordeaux white wines are made with a combination of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes.These wines are quite sweet, with balanced acidity, so many of these wines can be long lived in the wine cellar, even decades. As these wines age, you will notice that their color deepens to a beautiful deep gold. Even though these are age worthy wines, they can be quite approachable and food friendly when young. Yes they can. Tasting and pairing th
