It’s Wine Wednesday! This month we’d like to recommend a fantastic wine that would be perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, the 2010 Les Allees de Cantemerle from the Chateau Cantemerle in France.
Here’s what the winemaker had to say about this delicious red:
Fruity aromas, delicate tannins, and an overall balance holds sway: this wine is all finesse and elegance. Two words will suffice: smoothness and charm. A touch of black currant here, a hint of vanilla there, some raspberry for good measure…this wine, with its delicate softness, is beginning to show its true character: a delicious and refined Medoc. Better than just a second wine, its immediate and heady pleasure is enthralling. A perfect luncheon wine.
We had the pleasure of tasting this wine at our firm’s annual Christmas party this past December. Usually we hold this event at my home, but this year we decided to let the fantastic team at The Carillon take care of us. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the whole experience was and the food was heavenly (I highly recommend the tomato salad, and I don’t even like tomatoes!)
This month’s wine recommendation can be purchased at Applejack Wine & Spirits, or for the full Valentine’s Day experience head on over to The Carillon to have this wine expertly paired with a delicious meal for you and your sweetie.
Life is better with good food, good wine and great design,
