For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine & Spirits.
This is bottle 5 in our series. To see the others click here: Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine.

Chateau Ducasse Bordeaux White 2010: A mix of sauvignon blanc and semmilion with notes of citrus, honeysuckle and grass. Region: Bordeaux, France. Goes with: Fish, summer salads. Price: $16. Why I chose it: It’s unique. Some people find sauvignon blanc too fruity and one-dimensional, but the semillion gives it more body and lower acidity.
