Cuisine en Famille Rouge, 2019

This wine is precisely what the label states: a wine for family cooking. And it is an excellent every day wine. Unfortunately, I had only a taste of it tonight because I chose it as a wine to use for cooking a special meal: boeuf bourguignon. And I am sure it will make the dish even more special.

Cuisine en Famille is 70% Grenache, and it is the well grown and well made Grenache that I love. Ripe fruit, fresh acid. Cherries and berries with peppery spice. The 30% Cinsault adds another spicy dimension. Flavors glide across the tongue exactly as they should. An old fashioned Southern Rhone. Wish I had a case to savor over the next three years.
