Wow! I’m in Heaven

Charmes-PINOTHere’s a pair of traditional-style reds

Wow! I’m in heaven. A Rioja with earthy flavours of Rhone, the woodsy thing of Chianti, and my favourite “˜otherworld’ character. Old-fashioned wine in the down “˜n dirty style. Not necessarily apealing on the first sip, but great for food.

And here’s a fab Pinot for fans of the traditional Burgundian style. As in bone dry, earthy and farmyardy. With a bitter tail to stimulate the appetite. I love the “˜honest’, bistro quality in this wine. Another wine crafted for the supper table.
