Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

My Dinner From Yves

Last night we enjoyed langoustines with Muscadet and Jasniere, followed by veal with Cepes and potatoes. The Bourgueil worked but was a little on the light side, The Chinon was bigger , though only medium bodied - perfect withe veal and cepes. Virtually all the wines went well with the spectacular cheese course. Coteaux de Layon was heavenly with Yves Strawberry tart. Not too heavy in the way that some Sauternes can be. Yves, Melanie and Cami, pulled it if with smooth service for eighteen people. Can't wait to see what Yves will come up with tonight. I will be giving a brief class to the group on Loire Valley wines, but I am hoping to use some of the Gaillac and Madiran , I couldn't help buying, too! These southwest wine are so good and inexpensive and so hard to find in the U.S.

    Ah, Chinon...very underestimated, in my estimation...just love Cab franc.
