  • Andre Lurton Chateau Bonnet Entre Deux Mers 2011

    Snoothrank:

    An excellent light and gently fruity white wine. Not too dry and pairs well with just sitting in a summer breeze and relaxing your cares away. I love this wine very chilled on hot summer evenings. It is remarkable and easily one of my very favorite wines. Well done Andre Lurton! Read More

  • 2011 Carlisle White Blend, 66% Semillon, 24% Muscadelle, 10% Chasselas Dore' (or Palomino, from 118 yr. old vines at Saitone Ranch, RRV). Not to be outdone, the Semillon comes from Monte Rosso, planted in 1886, and Pagani Ranch Muscadelle planted in 1920. You gotta be kidding me...I'm glad I looked this up after my first few sips. Talk about try... Read More

They make an excellent pairing, yet this duo has long been overlooked.Even taken separately, this is true. Magret de canard and foie gras are de riguer at the Bordelais table.
