Food Pairings for Château Luciere Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Clairet
Had some nice smooth tannins for a young wine. Good minerality.
This wine reminds me of all of the things I disliked about French wines when living and traveling in Europe. Most French wines are made for the table and sold at prices competitive with milk. The French really do drink wine with meals like we drink soda, milk or water. As a result, there is very little regard for whether a wine washes food down well or is really a nice drink unless you pay a lot (like $40+ by the time it gets to the US). This wine was tannic to the point of being tasteless. I poured the bottle into a bowl, added A1 sauce, Worstershire sauce, and Montreal Steak spices and threw three New York Strip steaks in to marinate for a few hours. Wow, those were great steaks - so it isn't entirely worthless, just a little expensive for a marinade wine.
We had this wine with roasted chicken and apples. It was very nice. The wine is dry, fruity, medium-full bodied, and quite soft. It was part of our 4 Seasons wine club selection.
Great smooth red, pretty dry with a soft floral hint.
Not wild about it
