2008 Chateau Saint-Jean Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhones Villages

july 16, 2011: another very late posting from this past summer ... my grandmother is 91 and, as a result, she doesn't cook as much. so after she picked me up at the train station in st. malo, we headed to her favorite chinese restaurant outside the walls of the city. the restaurant is a buffet much like the ones we have here, except the seafood is fresher and the wine selections are typically better and more exact. so grandmere ordered a bottle of this 2008 chateau saint-jean plan de dieu cotes du rhone, which i thought was woody and had some cedar notes. it was also somewhat sweet with light tannins and paired very well with the chinese food. 14.5 percent alcohol.
