Domaine du Mas Blanc-$35

 

Here we head back to France and fittingly end with a dessert wine! Yes, Grenache can be made into dessert wines. The most famous is Banyuls, the best wine to pair with chocolate, and my favorite producer is the famous Docteur Parce and his Domaine du Mas Blanc.

When made into a dessert wine, Grenache retains much of its richness and bright red fruit, adding in nuanced notes of chocolate and plums. The alcohol is relatively modest for a dessert wine and the texture is rich and smooth, with just a hint of tannin to help balance out the sweetness. It is a rare treat and a wonderful way to end both a meal and a look at Grenache!

  • God bless you all at Snooth for obviously discovering my recommendation in a thread with a fellow reader a few months back, for the Domaine du Cayron Gigondas. I shall now struggle to put my hat on, and regret not ordering the 2010.
