CLASSICS BISTRO REDS at MODEST PRICES
Let’s not forget that France pioneered many of the wines that we enjoy today. However, they got greedy and over charged, as well as compromising quality. As regular readers know France is having a rebirth, and delivering high quality at reasonable prices. Usually offering more character than big-selling New World brands. As a recent Vintages tasting I made a note to get some of this trio – each a classic Bistro wine.
DELAS 13 Cotes du Rhone, France 729962 Vintages $16.95
. . . Cotes du Rhone is the original Bistro Red for hearty meals with lots of spice.
FERRAUD 14 Saint-Amour, Beaujolais, France 443044 Vintages $19.95
. . . Cru Beaujolais is the original Bistro Red for roast chicken, and other white meats.
