Could someone please stop the clock? The first autumn month is already gone and I’m still thinking it’s summer or ok, late summer. Being busy means not as much time for tastings and trying out new wines, but the weekends are still saved for doing what we like the most. Spending time in the kitchen trying new recipes and finding the perfect wine to go with it.
The big find of the month was probably Domaine Louis Cheze Ro-Rée Saint Joseph. A classic example of Northern Rhone Grenache. A nose filled with red berry fruit with notes of forest along with macerated prunes. The palate rather vital and spicy with a touch of pepper. Pleasing both body and mind.
