August wines

 Back home again from France our holiday continued for another two weeks. Two weeks that of course flew by and included both DIY-work at home and some boating.

Wine wise we continued with a lots of French with some mix of Italian. Looking at the list below I realize now that it isn’t much other than French and Italian wine in our cellar. I think we need to broaden our horizon a bit…

Favourite of the month was 2008 La Bastide Blanche from Bandol (one of the favourite places of our trip to France). Mourvèdre and Grenache in a perfect combination. And yes you can almost taste and smell the sea.

Another favourite and also amazing fizz for the money was NV Dopff Brut Cuvée Julien from Alsace. The perfect aperitif to get a dinner going with winter apples, biscuits and hints of grapefruit.

It was also with great fondness we opened a bottle of 2010 Mas de La Grange Blanche Châteauneuf-du-Pape from Domaines Moussett., where we stopped the first night on our trp. Lots of red berries, cherries and pepper. Smells of leather and cocoa. A young CdP at clearly at its best.
