Food Pairings for Jean-Luc Colombo St.-Péray la Belle de Mai
Night OneThick fruit opens the nose, strawberry jam and plums. These are followed by cinammon and green pepper.The palate starts with the same strawberry jam and plums, with a clear midpalate of asian spices and smoked meat. Tannins are very fine, even dusty, but firm, still strong and not fully integrated, adding leather to the finish.Night TwoFlorals were way out front on night two, violets and lilacs. There was fruit, too, mostly bruised plums. In all fairness, I think this got a little over-oxidized from one night to the next so it is really not fair to keep judging it. This was pleasant but not wonderful on Night One and gone on night two. The bottle was well sealed, the Vacuu-Vin top still had a good seal and suction. I expect I will not be running out to buy more of this one.
Paid only $9 for this bottle, so I felt it was a good value, even though I didn't love it. Flavors on the palate seemed muted to me, though I drank it alone and not with any food. Wouldn't go out of my way to purchase again.
Our house wine. Cherry menthol and clove on the nose, with cherry and raspberry notes. Not a great deal of complexity, but smooth, and pairs well with a lot of foods, including the gorgonzola tortellini with bacon I made tonight. Great QPR.
Our last bottle of the case. Might order another since I still haven't found anything else this good for $10, especially a wine that pairs well with so many things.
Very pleasant. Tasty. Fruity. Good balance. Really doesn't get much better for $10 these days.
Great fruit nose, raspberry, blueberry. Not much flavor on the pallet, not my favorite, but the blend of intense smell yet not much flavor was an interesting combo.
well mad wine. Nose a little flat, but earthy and leathery with a hint of menthol. Taste: wet stone, gravel, cherry pits, baseball mitt leather and some barnyard funkiness in a very good way. found a few cases locally at $12/bottle. Great value, I'd give 88pts
