A toast to fine French wines

A toast to fine French wines | AXA Millesimes by VitaBellaWine | Scoop.it

With turrets and a lake tocomplete the picture, Chateau Suduiraut looks like something out of a fairy tale. The chateau overlooks a magnificent garden, created by the great landscape gardener Le Notre who also created the gardens at Versailles.

The main course alted Icelandic cod comes with a shaving of chorizo and avocado and is just the right size – no micro dining here. A 2007 Pauliac Chateau Pibran made it all the more delectable.

Another lovely Portuguese red from Quinta do Noval

One of my favourite wine countries: Portugal. Some great terroirs, and some inspiring wine growers. And lots of progress over the last decade.

The attractively priced 2010 Ste Hélène cuvée from Mas Belles Eaux near Pézenas is surely the best ever from this domain: Languedoc at its most drinkable and refined, and balm after some of the region’s more chaotic excesses.

Australian Wine Review | AXA Millesimes by VitaBellaWine | Scoop.it

Domaine de L'Arlot Nuits-St. Georges 'Clos de Forets Saint-Georges' 1er Cru 2009 (Nuits-Saint-Georges, Burgundy, France)
Such a masculine wine this one. Masculine, powerful and dense, with a real sense that this will be a long lived beast indeed.

Chateau Baron Pichon | Wine duck

Chateau Baron Pichon | Wine duck | AXA Millesimes by VitaBellaWine | Scoop.it

Or the full name: Château Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville. Smokey. Really smokey. With smoked plums and smoked spices. But the smoke isn’t in a bad way, like inscense, it intensifies the wine and makes it exotic. If you can afford it, this is a great wine to have around.

GARFICOPO: Feijoada de Língua de Porco | AXA Millesimes by VitaBellaWine | Scoop.it

Para acompanhar, escolhi o Cedro do Noval 2008, a segunda marca da Quinta do Noval. Tem Syrah no lote, logo é regional duriense. Mas é um vinho escuro, muito químico, quase a fazer lembrar um vintage. Muita e boa fruta, boa madeira do estágio compuseram um vinho opulento e que me deu muito prazer.

Chateau Suduiraut 2007 - Sauternes, France, $40

Intense and full-bodied, with mango, spice and floral notes. Wonderful balance of sweet and acidity. An amazing value for what is a classic wine.

W.J. Deutsch & Sons: Available in the District at MacArthur Beverages, Pearson’s Wine & Spirits. Available in Virginia at Total Wine (multiple locations).
