Spring is in the air today, and my thoughts turn to the Mouton Cadet white bordeaux languishing downstairs waiting for liberation.
With a turn of the corkscrew, my white wine season begins! We are drinking the 2010 vintage with our pasture raised chicken tonight, but this wine stirs nostalgia for “the day”, since we first discovered this wine back in the 1980s. I’m not sure if the blend is the same; in fact it may be more earthy than that “back in the day” vintage, but it is still lovely, drinkable, great with meals, and under $10 a bottle.
The blend is 65% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillion, and 5% Muscadelle. It should be available in your local wine store, if not, ask for it.
Now of course you know I am no wine expert, but I know what I like, and this is my favorite reasonably priced summer white (maybe in the fall I will extoll the virtues of my favorite sassy Aussie red, Squid’s Fist, but for now, spring is in the air!) So if you’re tired of all the Chardonnays strangling you with their OAK OAK OAK, and need something fruity but dry, please try my Mouton.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope spring is in the air at your house too!
