I know this is Friday, but it’s better (a little) late than never, no? We drank the wine on Monday night even, so it’s definitely qualified for this Wine Blogging
Wednesday Friday. For those of you new to this, Wine Blogging Wednesday is the fun event in the (mostly) wine and (some) food blogging community. Each month a new blog host chooses a theme for the tasting. It could be anything from a cépage, year, region, flavor or even the wacky-name edition which I hosted a few years ago.
The theme this month is Cabernet Franc, and the host is none other than the oddly fascinating Gary Vaynerchuck of Wine Library TV. Gary hosts a wine video blog, so it should be fun to see how he’s going to do the roundup. Count on him to do something outrageously hilarious, or hilariously outrageous, or even both.
My choice is my absolute favorite Saumur Champigny: 2001 Clos Rougeard “Le Bourg”. At home on Monday, David and I hosted a small impromptu dinner party with the wine and a simple roast chicken with vegetables from the garden.
