2 crisp whites and 2 grill-worthy reds to help you beat the heat!
June 2020 Wine Club
Travel is the gift that keeps on giving, from the fun of planning, through the trip itself and its aftermath: the memories, the photos, the new tastes acquired and brought home. But of course, nobody I know is doing much traveling this summer… so we decided to do some armchair travel, to the bistros of Paris! We’ve prepared your ‘ticket’ via 5 wines that partially beg to be drunk with a Croque Monsieur, a nice garlicky salad, and – most importantly!- some joie de vivre.
3 of the wines are from France’s Southwest, a land of odd grape varieties and assertive food. If you enjoy these wines, try to find Jean & Paul Strang’s excellent book on the area and its food: Goose Fat and Garlic. Make the cassoulet, and pair it with the Jouclary Rouge. Plan on a nap.
