TOMORROW : Saturday, January 31st, 2015 9 2-6PM ) : Portugal and one lovely French Burgundy, too with Jim Reeves of Com├Ęte Wines, to taste with you all, Samantha is off to Portugal in two weeks, too :




1) MONTE DA GLORIA Vinho Regional Alentejano Estremox, 2012, $10.99, 13% alcohol by volume,  a delkicious ripe, fruit-forward, easy-sipping lush and vibrant blend of Aragones, Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira grapes, indigenous : lovely in one word! ...




 2) Colheita Selectionada European Atlantic West Coast Branco/ white Vinho Regional Lisboa flavorful dry white blend of  50% Fernao Pires and 50% Arinto, with more body and excellent for this colder weather as it has more of a base, and anyone into music and popular melodies knows : " It's all about the base. " I like this dry white a lot, also available in an equally dry, distinct and flavorful red, ....





3) Estate Collection of the European Atlantic West Coast , a dry and flavorful , with some oak, too blend of Viognier and, Sauvignon, Fernao Pires and Arinto, so some indigenous grapes, some international one : a marriage of the two, and a dry, flavorful complex white from Portugal to appeal to the modern palate and also to stand up to heartier and more robust and flavorful, spicy and hot dishes.





Wow, this will be a great tasting of Portuguese wines ... and :






4) 2011 100% Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France made in the town and area Irancy just by Chablis in northern Burgundy. This Clothilde Davenne , $22.99 a bottle, 12.5% alcohol by volume, is the definition of elegance, lightness, airiness, brightness and breed and finesse where less is more, or so it would seem when you look at the light color and think you may hav been jipped! Then you taste this delightfull fresh and vibrant and uplifting Pinot Noir and you are transported to other realms and you start to smile largely and breathe so freely! Lovely, lovely, did I say it was LOVELY?!? It is, trust me ... I love it.



Jim and Jane Reeves tasted the Portuguese wines of ...
1) Quinta PINTO, $19.99 ....
2) Vinhas Do LASSO, $14.99 .... and
3) MONTE Da GLORIA, both the red and the white at $10.99 ...
that were really well made, balanced, flavorful and distinct, liked them, and the prices are so reasonable , too... TONY 2/3/2015
