WINE TALK 9/11-9/17e
Caillou Noir - Pinot Noir 2014
This village, entry-level Burgundy might fool you. Upon opening, it's tightly wound and needs some breathing room. Thereafter, it offers a bistro-styled take on a Côte Chalonnise. Nicely perfumed, soft fruit and slightly tannic. It truly shines when accompanying simple fare.
Bernier Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Less tangy than some Loire Sauvignon Blanc, this easy, soft wine has attractive acidity and a balanced, steely texture. It's crisp, with some herbaceousness over grapefruit flavors. Drink now.
Bodegas LAN Rioja Crianza 2012
Intense red cherry color. Aromas of red fruits, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry framed by fine nuances of vanilla and toffee. Silky and structured on the palate, it has a long lasting and satisfying finish.
A perfect wine by the glass. Very versatile and apt to combine with all types of food: cold starters, pasta, pizza, poultry, grilled red meat.
