French Country Wines at Everyday Prices



We test tend to sample a lot of domestic wine here at Snooth so when we get the opportunity to try a selection of wines from, say, France for example we jump at it. I recently had the chance to sample 3 great French bottlings, all imported by Cynthia Hurley, whose informative blog, La Route du Vin, is worth visiting for further information on these, and other, fine values.

These wines are perfect for the season as we venture outside into the warming air of Spring and were a big hit at my inaugural Spring barbeque this past weekend. We have secured great sale prices for these wines from our friends over at Carlo Russo's Wine and Spirit World, located in Hohokus, NJ.

2007 Domaine Auvigue Macon Solutre
This is simply wonderful Chardonnay full of rich orchard fruits edged with citrus tones in a fresh, juicy style that reveals lovely hints of mineral, hazelnut and white flowers on the finish. This is simply delicious and is sure to please every palate!

Chateau la Roncheraie Cuvee Prestige 2005
Coming from one of the last refuges of moderately priced Bordeaux, this Merlot based blend offers up rich and complex aromatics with great earthy toned black currant and black cherry fruit. Medium bodied with great acidity and a wonderful fresh feel from the ripe yet mouth-grabbing tannins that are a hallmark of this outstanding vintage.

2005 Couly-Dutheil Chinon Cuvee La Baronnie Madeleine
A classic Cabernet Franc combining dark cherry and spicy berry notes with sweet herb, olive and tomato notes. Really shines with a few hours of air offering sweet dark fruits balanced by cleansing acidity. A brilliant match for our garlicy grilled chicken and Cassoulet! 92 points from the Wine Spectator.
