One of the most flirtatious light reds that I’ve ever had. Open hearted and humorous with a soft seductive finish. Great legs, bright approach, round lingering overtones. Make this your next first date and I promise you won’t be disappointed. At first whiff, this wine hints at a freshly baked cherry pie picnic and the promise of a wild blackberry scavenger hunt. (I know, I know....but it's true!)
1. Appetizer of medium bodied bleu cheese with sliced pears and a touch of fig jam on water crackers
2. Appetizer of roasted figs wrapped with prociutto and stuffed with a little bleu cheese (just make a little x at the top and stuff a tiny amount of bleu in and roast)
3. As an aperitif
4. Wild salmon lightly grilled, asparagus with shaved parmesan
6. Great picnic wine: roast beef sandwiches, green salad with a light gorgonzola dressing toasted with pecans and apples, cherry tarts.
This wine should not be confused with a fruity Beaujolais, spicy Spanish Rioja or an Italian Sangiovese. Chambolle-Musigny is a very sophisticated young lady with a BA from Harvard and bright outlook on life. It's ready to drink now or keep for another 5-7 years or longer!
