binny’s south loop french tasting

A nice selection from distributors of French wines. I bought a bottle of my #5. My favorites of the 45 wines:
  1. Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin Estournelles St. Jacques 2005 ($80) (I love good pinot noir. especially the rich funky bourgogne kind.)
  2. Château Quinault l’Enclos St. Emilion 2006 ($40) (Merlot done right. Very right.)
  3. Lorentz Crémant d’Alsace NV ($20) (Interesting and delicious. Other sparkling wines and champagnes at the tasting were very good, but this would be my pick.)
  4. Perrin Vinsobres Les Cornuds 2006 ($20)
  5. Perrin Côtes du Rhône Réserve Blanc 2008 ($9)
  6. Lorentz Pinot Blanc 2008 ($13)
  7. Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône 2006 ($27)
