Bill McCleary Staff Selection • Spring 2016Jean-Christophe andMargaret Calvet ofAquitaine Wines have hadtheir fabulous Bordeauxwines on Surdyk's shelves for many years.You have met them in our store for theirpopular tasting sessions during our pastsales. Domaine Laroque Cabernet Franc isone of the Calvet's exclusive features thatwe all love. Laroque now adds a Pinot Noirto our offerings. The grapes are from 20-year old vines high up in the cool hills ofthe Black Mountains around the medievalcity of Carcassonne in southern France.Made of 100% Pinot Noir, this is amarvelous red with all the earthywoodland aroma and dried spiciness youcould want from a good Pinot. Fragrantscents of cherry, blackberry and fig areright up front. The flavor of French blackplum dominates with hints of cedar, baconand cocoa on the finish. A firm yet smoothtexture shows off the pronounced fruit. Iwould say this is a gentle, approachablestyle at a really impressive sale price. Aperfect replacement for more expensiveBurgundy pinot noir. This is my choice fortaste and price to pair with the classicFrench stew Beef Bourguignon. Thisdelicious wine goes into the dish and thenon the table. Enjoy all year long.
