A few months ago (I know, I'm really behind) we went to a wine tasting event at the Indy Cigar Bar. The event featured four French wines. Here are the wines we tasted, and really enjoyed!
Fincham, Red Note
A blend of mostly Grenache with Syrah kept in small barrels, is a classic Costieres de Nimes with plenty of fragrance, sweet black raspberry and cherry fruit, and some licorice, earth and spice.
Chateau Haut Beyzac, Haut Medoc
This wine exhibits attractive aromas of cedar, red currants, damp earth, and spice box. This medium-bodied, pure, soft wine should drink well for 4-5 years.
Chateau de Lancyre, Vielles Vignes
A noes of concentrated black fruits tinged with smoke and marine air, Leads to a concentrated, clean, bitter fruit skin-tinged and smoky Lapsang Tea-laced palate. This wine will be worth following for 5-7 years.
Chateau de Donjon, Cuvee Prestige
Very deep crimson in color, with some tasty aromas from oak aging, it delivers ripe fruit, vanilla and chocolate aromas. It is full and generous on the palate with a long, powerful finish supported with soft tannins. Aging potential 5-10 years.
-This one was our favorite! We bought a bottle to share at the tasting and another to take home.
