2007 J. Moreau and Fils Vouvray: Light, somewhat sweet, apricot and peach flavors
aug. 27, 2011: we served this frenchman at a party and it seemed to be well-liked. it was a hot, sunny, humid day, and this is the type of wine that i think pairs very well with this weather if you're looking for a lighter, refreshing refreshing. it had inklings of apricot and peach flavors.12 percent alcohol. winetree.
this column runs as "bottle by bottle" in the evansville courier and press twice or so a month. the focus is on wines, food and how they intersect. if i receive gifts, i'll tell you. photo credits are noted. i buy most of my wines from winetree, varsity liquors, schnucks, the fresh market, kwik liquor and winestyles (in evansville, ind.); big red liquors and sahara mart (in bloomington, ind.); vecchio's italian market (in newburgh, ind.); whole foods (in st. louis); and binny's (in chicago.) also, i do try a number of wines that i don't necessarily mention in the column, through travels to france and other markets (germany, hungary, italy, etc.) that don't sell wines i can find here. those experiences factor into my tasting descriptions, even if i don't mention them in the column, so keep all that in mind. i write the column to tell my readers in the evansville, ind., area what i consider to be flavorful, balanced and good-value wines for sale in this area.
