Wine Tastings ~ It’s All About France

We have several wonderful boutique wine shops within walking distance of our Denver Pied-à-Terre. Often, I will plan my afternoon around the weekly wine tasting.  It is rare (really rare) if I don’t leave with a bottle or two, three, four or more of new wines to add to the cellar.

Today I had the pleasure to try wines from  Kermit Lynch‘s portfolio of French wines. You can follow Kermit on his blog. Great stories and photos.

Tasted:

2009 Chateau Ducasse Blanc – An outstanding crisp, light blend of Semillon, Sauvignon, and a bit of Muscadelle.

2009 Hippolyte Reverdy Sancerre – A textbook Loire Valley Sauv Blanc.  89pts WA

2009 Domaine de la Chanteleuserie Bourgueil –  A good and reasonably priced Cab Franc.

2007 Domaine La Roquete –  Fans of Chateauneuf du Pape should be paying attention to what is taking place at La Roquete.  The property was acquired by the Brunier family (who also own Vieux Telegraphe) in the mid-eighties and over the last 5 years they have been successful in increasing the quality.  93pts WA

Bought:

ALL!

If you have a chance to try, please do and if you have a chance to buy, please do!
