2008 Hugues Beaulieu Coteaux du Languedoc: Greg liked it. Victoria was more in the "eh" category.


july 6, 2009: we had this with tomato-garlic brats with mashed potatoes and zucchini marinated with balsamic vinagrette. the meal was delicious. victoria thought the wine, while refreshing, wasn't that flavorful. it was good for a hot, humid night like we had last night. but overall it reminded her of a pinot grigio -- light on flavor, but heavy on silky texture. greg, however, really liked it. he had had this bottle for the first time with his cousin rob williamson at their grandfather's cabin near bloomington and was really impressed with it. on a sticky night, victoria could see why it would be a welcome companion. she just wouldn't get it again. 12.5 percent alcohol. $7.99 at big red liquors in bloomington.
