Top 3 Wines from Belle Glos Blind Tasting:
1. Willowlake Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (On Sale)
2. T. Solomon Wellborn Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (On Sale)
3. TIE Boulee Cordot & Belle Glos Pinot Noir
One of the breakout stars at winestore. over the lasst 12 months has been Boulée-Cordot...and it has developed an insane following with very little fanfare (until now).
We put the wine in the tasting last weekend just for fun as a ringer (and we know what kind of value it truly represents) - and at $9.99 per bottle the wine tied for third place with Belle Glos Balade - with each of the wines gathering 14.38% of the first place votes.
When we originally stumbled upon this wine, we got a little more than excited. We're always looking for great value wines, but finding wine that tastes great for less than $9.99 is kinda like finding an old school restaurant that still serves amazing cheeseburgers for $3.00 and $5.00 with a milkshake and fries - they are out there, but you got to do some digging.
As France evolves into the modern world, there are times when it seems that they’ve merely arrived in the late 20th century. Blends like this one wouldn't have been seen only a few scant years ago. Instead, the wine would have been named after the place where it originated; perhaps the grapes would have been listed on the back label if they were noted at all. But somebody in France got the memo – the modern world wants more information, and the old place names, unless they’re the famous ones, don't mean much.
So basically even if we had seen this blend, we wouldn't have known we were drinking it, even if we were :) Syrah is planted throughout Mediterranean France, and has a strong reputation dating back to the mid-19th century when Bordeaux chateaux would blend a small amount into their wines to improve them. Alicante? It’s one of the rare Teinturier grapes, having red juice as well as red skins and in the right spots it can be powerful and juicy, not just inky. Together they make for a very modern, fascinating, if nontraditional, wine.
So if you're looking for some value to add to your weekly wine lineup - this is a cannot miss!
