Francoise et Denis Clair Hautes Cotes de Beaune, 2002

What a perfect wine for Valentine's Day! I chose a red Burgundy to go with the meal of Filet Mignon with roasted root vegetables, and the wine was a good match. It was also as lovely and inviting as my lover of the past 39 plus years.

Light to medium garnet. The smells are immediately captivating--ripe strawberries. Wild strawberries; wild and wonderful. So ripe, so seductive but nothing superficial or simple. Weaves a spell like Carlos Santana's Black Magic Woman. Same on the palate. Delicate mouth feel and so silky. Blushingly sweet with flavors that last forever. Happy Valentine's Day.
