New Hampshire Wine-man: Château de Bonhoste Grand Vin 2009 Bordeaux Supérieur

New Hampshire Wine-man: Château de Bonhoste Grand Vin 2009 Bordeaux Supérieur | Planet Bordeaux - The Heart & Soul of Bordeaux | Scoop.it

Nearly the best red dinner wine I can think of, Château de Bonhoste 2009 Bordeaux should makes a perfect dinner companion for that large gathering, and won't break the bank either. Come to think of it, it seems every time I go to some kind of banquet or large gathering, the caterers serve this cheap-type $5.00 a bottle Merlot, but because everyone is preoccupied, the plonk is ignored by most! (Song for all us old folk) I wonder-wonder who, not knowing anything about catering or just how restaurants decide on a wine to serve for showers, weddings, or other large groups, just how is a wine chosen? Is it the house wine, is it the cost, or maybe the availability; whatever method is applied, let me challenge those in the position to decide, to decide on a satisfying wine.

Planet Bordeaux's insight:

An excellent value presented in this review by the New Hampshire wine-man!

This is a quaffing wine (By itself or with food), with good acids and tame tannin carried on a light-plus body with mellow flavors of pomegranate and boysenberry. The finish is a surprisingly spicy affair, with cayenne and white pepper.
