Myles Kehoe bar in Enniscorthy, Wexford, Ireland used to have an off-licence with a tiny wine selection. On a visit many years ago, Myles took me to a shelf of Bordeaux red wine and announced, â€œThis is my Fronsac, the best value in Bordeauxâ€.
Iâ€™ve waited a long time to pass along Myles tip, but here is the style of wine he used to sell. Fresh, frank, solid, no-nonsense stuff that tastes/feels of a French Bistro. Drier and less rich than todayâ€™s popular reds, but the perfect partner for steak frites, lamb chops or any food that nurtures belly and soul. Youâ€™re sure to need a second bottle! Buy a case as this is an amazing value at $14.95. Worth seeking out at Vintages this weekend.
