This Friday, we're going to explore some of our very favorite regions of France! Starting with a beautifully matured white from the Rhone Valley, we'll then move to an outstanding Beaujolais, and finish up with a 10 year old Bordeaux!
2017 Pierre le Grand Crozes-Hermitage Blanc
This blend of Marsanne and Roussanne has had some time to evolve in the bottle and show its longevity. Notes of bitter apple, tart peach, and lemongrass on the palate lead to a zippy finish with great balance.
2018 Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon "Grand Cras," Beaujolais AOP
On Sale $22.99
Aromas of rose petals, raspberries, cherries and licorice introduce the 2018 Morgon Grands Cras, another superb wine from Burgaud that's medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, with a fleshy core, ripe acids and a long finish. If anything, this is even more charming than Les Charmes this year. They make a formidable-and keenly-priced-duo that readers will enjoy comparing.

2010 Chateau La Serre, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru AOP
Rich and spicy note with cranberries, nutmeg and crushed white pepper. Seville orange, chocolate and blackberries coming out after a while. Full and dense on the palate with polished tannins and very long finish with lots of dark fruit. Pretty wine. Drink from 2015.
