Wine Wednesday!



Man, I had typed up this nice long post and then the power went out… and my post was gone. I know you’re very sad that I will not be retyping my love of the new cardio equipment at the gym. But, that’s just how it’s going to have to be, ha!

Besides that, though, I was commenting on how busy a summer it’s shaping up to be. The Husband has some new work travel plans that are being batted about, we have a few family and friend events to celebrate, and lots of little items that are being added to the calendar. It’s just a crazy time of year! But it is important to never get too busy to take time out to relax, enjoy good food, good company, and, of course, good wine!

Today’s wine selection is a great summer choice for those of us who love our reds! It’s a French Cotes Du Rhone that retails for around $13. This bottle of Pierre Amadieu Roulepierre is a 2010 vintage.

Here are my notes:

  • color- ruby
  • scent- berry, floral
  • very light, smooth
  • easily drinkable red, even for those who may prefer a good white
  • berry notes
  • just a hint of light spice on the aftertaste
  • would be great for a hot day!

From the winemakers: “Bunches of Grenache and Syrah grown on chalk and clay soils are strictly sorted to produce this cuvée. Hand made harvests and traditional wine making process express a pleasant colour together with red and black fruits scents (blackberry, plum). A sweet touch of liquorice enhances the beautiful palate. A mouth filling wine in a pure Rhône style. To drink in its youth (2 years) or within 5 years on a grilled poultry, a roasted veal with an unctuous sauce.”
