Viva La France!
Join Tenacity Wine Shop this Friday night for tasting wines from France, where wine isn’t just wine, it’s a life staple! They will be sampling four wines: a white wine, a lovely rose’ and two red wines.
Domaine De Pouy-France- White Table Wine-This fresh, crisp, fruity and easy drinking wine has 60% Ugni Blanc and 40% Colombard. It has a floral nose with crisp, green apple flavors. It hails from the Cotes de Gascogne area in the southwest of France, also home to Cognac (the main grape, Ugni Blanc, is also the main grape in Cognac.).
Andrieux & Fils Cotes de Provence Rose’ 2010- France- Grenache and Syrah- This Rose’ is a beautiful light rose salmon color with aromas of raspberries, strawberries and hints of exotic fruits. The mouth offers an array of fruits with touches of apricots and white peaches. A well-balanced mouth leaves a refreshing, lingering finish.
Domain De Pellehaut Harmonie de Gascogne 2009- France- The Cuvee Harmonie rouge is 90% Merlot and 10% Tannat. Black currant, cassis and ripe plums come to ming, along with a hint of brightness reminiscent of pomegranate. The balance between fruit, richness and acidity here is exemplary. Delicious on its own!
Domaine des Escaravailles-Cotes du Rhone-“Les Sablieres” France- Pure fruit with raspberries and earth. Fresh acidity with a lengthy finish. Great for any occasion. Pairs with a fresh tray of meat and cheeses: salami, pepperoni, full bodied cheeses.
Special Note: Please mark you calandar for this upcoming benefit-
