Château de Panigon Red Bordeaux Blend Médoc 2008
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
I bought two bottles of this wine in 2009 at a Champion Supermarket on the way back to Calais at the end of a motorcycle trip to France.I seem to remember it cost 10 Euros a bottle.It is a Cru Bourgeos Medoc that obtained a bronze medal at the 2005 Concours de Bordeaux Vins Aquitaine wine competition.We had one with Christmas lunch and I have just drunk the second bottle.I thought it an absolutely beautiful claret,tasting of fruit yet totally smooth and subtle.It is definitely a quality product.It does not tell you this on the label but my Google research has revealed that it is 45% Merlot,45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot
Robust with a bit of chocolate on the palate. Also notes of plum and a little tartness. Good with red meat.
