The Wine Guy: What I’m Drinking This Week
One I especially enjoyed was La Bastide Blanche Bandol 2006 ($17), which is pale orange in color with scents and flavors of orange peel, cherries and strawberries. The Domaine de Nizas 2006 Coteaux du Languedoc ($18) is a darker red color with more exuberant fruit flavors, but still quite dry and refreshing. From Spain comes Fra Guerau 2006 Montsant ($14), a juicy blend of Syrah, Tempranillo and Merlot.
I even found one in my cellar from last year – Daniel Crochet Sancerre Rosé 2005 ($18), a Pinot Noir that paired beautifully with grilled Alaskan salmon. Ah, summer!
