August Wine Sale - Save on over 250 wines from around the world!

2007 Saint Eugenie Le ClosHere’s the one that I found most exciting: 2007 Saint Eugenie Le Clos. The first couple times I tasted this wine, I guessed it as a solid Rhone priced somewhere in the mid teens. I was amazed to find out that it sells everyday for $7.99. Now this month, it’s on sale for $5.99! That’s like … it’s just a completely unbelievable price. You have to try a bottle. You’ll come back for a case.

 

We tasted it one more time to be sure: Really nice raspberry on the nose, plus a little spicebox. Soft fruit on the palate raspberries and blueberries that lead to lifting acidity and more bramble notes at the finish. Just a delicious, easygoing, unpretentious red that stays classy and isn’t all about the overpowering jam that you’ll often find at this price. The breakdown is 45% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvingon, 20% Carignan and 20% Grenache. The Bordeaux varietals give it a little more dark fruit than the usual Rhone varietal-driven Mediterranean red.

 

What I’m trying to say is, if you come over to my apartment any time in the next few months, you’re probably going to get a glass of this stuff, because I’m stocking up.
