Salut tout le monde! So, I have a few bottles of French wine I'd like some info on in terms of taste and pairing with edible accompaniments, anyone care to help? I brought them over as gifts for my family and friends, but haven't had much time to look into them, and some were left for me as gifts by some of my students who I'm sure are more wine-savvy than I.
I'd like to have my whole family taste the champagnes and the 1998 Sauternes, and I'm giving the Monbazillac, Loupiac, and Caprice de Clémentine as gifts to individuals. Any suggestions about what I can tell them to expect as far as taste, and what one would eat with those in terms of a meal or snack? Without further ado, here are the concerned wines and a photo if that helps!
Sauternes, Chateau Romer du Hayot, 1998, 14%
Monbazillac, Chateau Hut Bernasse, 2005, 12.5%
Loupiac, Chateau de Montalier, 2009, 13.5%
Le Caprice de Clémentine, Côtes de Provence, 2010, 13%
Champange Brut, Ruinart, Maison de Ruinart, Reims 12%
Champagne Brut, Charles Bove, Méthode Traditionelle 12%
Thanks in advance/merci d'avance for any kind of info or help you can give me! I wish you all a very gleðileg jól (Icelandic :), joyeux noël, merry Christmas, and chanukkah sameach!
