I had a wine ready for review today, but I drank it.
Finishing the bottle at the botequim, I forgot to bring it home… I had hoped to get another, but haven’t been out of the house for the cold.
It was French, red, good… Not plonk. Name started with a B, not Burgundy.
Heres the blurb I wrote on the day of the crime:
“Yes, today, weinerschnitzel; all crumbed and ready to go. Boiled potatoes and buttered peas and cauliflower cheese on the side. French Bordeaux in the offing…
Oh, I know how to do it on a Sunday.”
I’ll do better next time.
I really must stop drinking wine before I’ve featured it here, but I am such a weak person.
Hidden away in the dusty reaches of my wine box behind the front door I found…
In true wine cellar form, the bottle did indeed need dusting.
You can read the history on their site. English
The wine is untried. I am saving it for a ‘special’ occasion; which may turn out to be a rainy day.
Serving: Between 14°C And 15°C
Flavours: Fruity and vegetable
Food pairings: BBQ chicken, salads, pizzas, pork and beef
Yes, I know it’s Thursday… again.
I’ll try again next week to get it right.
This week’s peek into my wine rack I found two bottles of the same wine.
Cuvée Brouchard Aîné
Rouge de France
Grape types: A blend based mainly on Syrah and Gamay.
Food pairings: Ideal with red meats, grilled meats, spicy dishes, wild game and cream cheeses.
Source: Brouchard Aîné for more info
My view: Fits in the pocket R$25 and tastes good with BBQ, that’s why I bought another two bottles.
I can’t be wrong, because this wine is considered the ‘ambassador’ of Cuvée Brouchard.
