While I will not be able to address all of them, I do promise to constantly supply an answer by means of e-mail. This month we chat pop-star wine, food pairings and also French white wine law.Q: Kate from Sea Island City asks, I have a bottle by, Vincent Bouzereau and also it says “Coteaux Bourgignons.” What does this suggest? Second of all, what kind of food do I serve with this wine?A: Many thanks Kate, fantastic concern! Coteaux Bourgignons is just one of the most recent Secured Denominations of Origin created to mirror glass of wines originating from the hill slopes of Wine red, a valued geographic attribute where creeping plants have excellent drain and also direct exposure to the sun (rather than the flat, warm valley floors that often make lower acid, coarser white wines ). The big distinction between Coteaux Bourgignons as well as the town as well as” cru “level wines is that more youthful Chardonnay vines are permitted in a glass of wine production, as are grape ranges aside from “large 3” of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and also Gamay. In the case of Vincent Bouzereau, a pleasurable easy-drinking white grape referred to as Aligoté is combined in equal parts with Chardonnay to make his Coteaux Bourgignons Blanc.What is couple with: Aligoté substantially brightens the plushness of Chardonnay in this white wine, however barrel-fermentation adds a velvety texture, giving
you a rather complex white wine. This is a white wine that would play off of crab cakes unbelievably well; the fragile meatiness of crab is a paradox in and of itself, the method the mix of Aligoté as well as Chardonnay supply a yin and yang to your senses. If you are composing a cheese plate, Aligoté is mosting likely to have a vibrant, lively personality, while the Chardonnay will certainly give a nutty personality after time in barrel. A young gouda and even a gruyère would certainly be a fine partner with this gewurztraminer from Bouzereau.
