Wine Tip Tuesday

We are hitting France this week and more specifically, the Langeudoc region of Southern France.

Puydeval 2009 - Vin de Pays d' Oc

This is a unique wine and it's gained a fervent following due to it's uniqueness and price point.  It is primarily composed of Cabernet Franc, which I love.  It's 62% Cab Franc, 28% Syrah and 10% Merlot.  This is a big, rich and concentrated wine.  The color is intense.  You will get notes of blackberry and black cherry with a hint of spiciness.  Along with the fruit are notes of anise and some earth.  It is a compliment to most meals.  I got it for $11.99.
