Last night I enjoyed a delicious French wine that my husband bought home after a business trip to Paris. Yes, a business trip to France. It's a rough life. Next time I'm going along too.
Serving a 2006 Clos de Dougent Grand Cru, Grand Vin de Bourgogne with a Tex-Mex dinner of Sanchos may not be the first pairing that comes to mind for wines of this quality, but the velvety lusciousness, complexity, and clarity of the masculine pinot was superb. A wine worthy of either a great steak or spicy meats, beans, and tortillas. The elegant burgundy soloist played well with the raucous choir of red hot chiles. Red is definitely my favorite color of the day.
