We recently went to a portfolio tasting of Robert Kacher wines and we picked out some of the greatest values in his portfolio. There are so many great wines available to us now, but the trick is to find the wines that over deliver quality for their price and are true to their style. We feel these are some of the best values in the Bobby Kacher portfolio and I think you will agree with us if you give them a try. We picked great wines from some classic French areas like Rhone, Burgundy and Loire. The wines we chose really show great character for their area and great value for their area. I really enjoyed the rare Bourgueil from Loire (100% Caberent Franc), we have carried wines from Bourgeuil in the past, but it has been awhile.
100% Grenache from Costières de Nîmes
This is an amazing fruit forward Grenache (the main grape of Chateauneuf du Pape). Talk about perfect summer and fall red. It will go well with a wide variety of foods from chicken on the grill, picnic fare like ham sandwiches and I think it would also be a great match with Thanksgiving dinner!
2008 Le Bois Martin Touraine....$14.99
Producer: Thierry Delaunay
100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire
"Domaine Joël Delaunay is located on the bank of the Cher River, about 30 miles east of the city of Tours. There are 24 hectares of vineyards in the same family for 5 generations now. Thierry Delaunay took over the estate in 2002 and obtained the “Terra Vitis” certification that same year guaranteeing the respect of nature, “using ecologically sustainable methods in view to preserve the environment and human health” (excerpt from www.TerrasVitis.com website). Domaine Joël Delaunay is the perfect combination of modern technique and long-lived traditions. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this very fruity wine is vinified from carefully selected musts. After temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine rests on its fine lees to maximize the development of its unique characteristics. It is best paired with fish and seafood, or enjoyed by itself as an
apéritif." -- Robert Kacher
