Fund-Friendly French Reds

FrenchReds

This Tuesday Tasting we try three full-flavored (and surprisingly affordable) French reds that won’t dip into your summer vacation funds. Featuring:

  • Roncier Pinot Noir –  Cherry, raspberry and light oak combine in this rich ruby red from France (made of a combination of several vintages) that has a hint of Asian spices and pepper on the finish. $11 btl, $6 btg
  • Jardin de Ruth Cotes du Rhone – This red from southern Rhone is predominately made of Grenache with a hint of Syrah to create a rich ruby red tasting of cherry and raspberry with a soft, elegant finish. $12 btl/$6 btg
  • Chateau Vincens L’Instant Malbec – Grown in the Cahors region (home to the majority of France’s Malbec), the Vincens family has been known for its award-winning Malbec’s for almost 100 years, and L’Instant is good reason why: tasting of dark fruit with a hint of earth and minerals, this is an elegant yet affordable example of how the French do Malbec. $14 btl/$7 btg

Tasting: $10
