Good French Wine

There are few things that improve life more than a glass of good French wine. My favorites have an earthy, old world character that is hard to find anywhere else. I'm not a wine expert but I've spent the last few years exploring the world of wine looking for bottles that truly feel like drinking bottled sunshine. Here are a couple that I highly recommend trying. If you like them, let me know and I'll make a habit of posting more that you'll probably like just as much!

  • 2003 Roger Sabon Chateaneuf Du Pape Prestige - ~$70. Tastes like France! One of my favorites and worth the splurge for a special occasion.
  • 1995 Chateau Simard St. Emmilion - ~$30. Good way to get a 12 year old bottle of Bordeaux for a reasonable price. Smooth and muted.
  • 2005 George Dubeuf Domain Des Quatres Vents Fleurie - ~$10. Very good Beaujolais, mellow and not too fruity.

The De Buef & St Emillion are indeed excellent choice and I like them as well. Have not tried the first one on the list, but will jot it down...
