Mixed Case 4 Bottle 1 — LoHud Wine of the Week: 2009 Chateau L’Argentyre
Posted By Liz Johnson On December 11, 2012 @ 5:21 pm In Drinks,Mixed Case,Wine | No Comments
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 chosen by Jeffrey Wooddy, manager of Rochambeau Wines & Liquors in Dobbs Ferry. .
2009 Chateau L’Argentyre: This is a gorgeous wine: proper Bordeaux nose, structure both taut and supple; a long, ripe finish with very refined tannins. Lovely. Region: Medoc, Bordeaux, France. Price: $13.99. Goes with: Meat, mostly, is Bordeaux’s favorite companion, but try this with a whole roasted chicken and plenty of savory herbs. Why I chose it: Most wine drinkers have passed over Bordeaux as a region, choosing instead to find ‘bargains’ in Spain and South America. I’d like people to take another look at Bordeaux. This is a great start.
This is bottle 1 in our series.
