Dominique Piron Coteaux Bourguignons 2012: A Burgundy made from 100 percent Gamay. Beautiful black cherry, coupled with a touch of firmness that finishes with a refreshing dollop of red and black fruits that will linger until you take your next sip. Price: $11.99. Region: Coteaux Bourguignons, Burgundy, France. Goes with: Grilled and roasted meats, fowl and sturdy fish dishes. Why we chose it: Great value, coming in a 1-liter bottle. It’s also a very versatile, because even though it’s a red wine, you can put a slight chill on it, which will enhance some of its delicious spicy components.
This is Bottle No. 3 in our 10th series.

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 Tracy Maxon and J.J. Berlingo of Varmax Liquor Pantry..
