Fabulous Frenchie Finds
|1||Domaine Matignon Anjou Rouge||Previously available for $12.99||
Haut Lieu Gaston Huet Domaine le Vouvray Petillant Brut (2005)
Comments: Dry, tart apple flavors. Very refreshing and clean. Had this with a butternut squash and apple soup with warm spices and this matched beautifully.
|Previously available for $23.99||
Paul Jaboulet Aine Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone (2010)
Comments: Fruity nose with lots going on in the palate! Classic stone fruits and honeydew melon, citrus zest and is that sesame I taste? A great sipper that would pair with sweet and tangy foods.
|Average price: $11.99 from 6 stores||
