France has produced its share of “˜dog’ wines over the years but here’s a pair that are anything but dogs. The white is a cool dude strutting frank refreshment with style. A Colombard/Chardonnay blend that may remind you of Muscadet, and a lovely lunch somewhere in the French countryside.
The red is in the Cotes du Rhone style ““ peppery earthy flavours along with refreshing vitality. Very gulpable, very good.
