Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc – Love at First Glass

The first sight of Sauvignon Blanc is like the first signs of Spring – A beautiful thing! I don’t know if I just LOVE Sauvignon Blanc or if I’ve been hibernating with Red for too long this winter, but this is the best I’ve tasted! Not as ‘harsh’ as a New Zealand, and leaves you salivating for more! Another round please, I think I see Spring flowers blooming!

2010 Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc Touraine “Cuvée spéciale” (France, Loire Valley, Touraine)

What Zagat Thinks: “A top-class Sauvignon with a gold-medal pedigree, from trusted Loire insiders the Bougrier family. They’ve sent the follow-up to their double gold-medal 2009 Reserve. Like the best Loire Sauvignon Blancs, this is crisp, elegant and poised. An ideal white for those who enjoy a more delicate style than the tropical fruit-loaded, leap-from-the-glass character found in New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. So fresh and very classy.”

Bottle Notes – “I choose the finest grapes to make my Family Reserve. It has classic Sauvignon Blanc character: aromatic elegant and dry. We enjoy this wine served as an aperitif or as acompaniment to grilled fish and seafood dishes, salads or the Loire classic goats cheese”

Winepug’s Tasting: APRICOT and PEACH are the pungent taste here, slightly acidic, semi creamy, a bit of a lovely bitter taste and beautifully smooth. Definitely drinking this as an aperitif AND with a great grilled Sea Bass!

Wine Wonders

Presentation is everything when sharing a great bottle of wine with guests.  The first impression of a bottle of wine can be unforgettably great or could leave a bad taste in your mouth if you don’t put in a little thought.  Take pride in your bottle of wine you will be serving at your next party and have a look at some inspiring ideas below to make your wine serving that much more exquisite and enjoyable by all!

Nostalgia with Tin Barn

I always love when a bottle of wine has a nostalgic memory behind it.  This bottle of Red Zinfandel is from our first trip to the Russian River Valley together as you may remember from {here}.  Tin Barn was my first time (probably will be the only time)  climbing into a steel barrel with a 4 year old {here}!  Sipping on this bottle with close friends and reminiscing about our time in the RRV, I think we enjoyed this wine right per it’s instruction on the bottle.

On the bottle: “Tin Barn is the fruit of five friends’ passion for the grape.  Our wines are crafted from vineyards specifically chosen for their unique soils and optimal growing locations.  Please drink with pleasure this quality wine we have produced.”

Winepug’s Tasting:  A lighter red with hints of vanilla and raspberry’s.  This wine is a great drinking wine that truly speak to it’s roots! A must with dark chocolate.  A casual yet seductive wine! – Try it and you’ll understand!
