When you pair wine tariffs with an EU facing relatively severe lockdowns, you can imagine that the supply chain gets slightly disrupted. Hence the reason you may have seen wines go in and out of stock this fall.
That said, when wines like Boulée-Cordot come back in stock, we get a little more excited than we do about some others. This wine, for $9.99, delivers the goods.
When we 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 let's celebrate value, and all the good things that come with it. Maybe pair this blend with a burger and fries from your local place (Zacks is a favorite of mine, or Wheeler's from where I grew up)
Happy Tuesday y'all!
