Shining ruby velvet. Buttery start to these scents of cherries, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry mixed up with a little bunch of spring flowers, and after a bit an earthiness that eventually lures in a little pine sap & citrus zest. Take a sip and here’s that blend of raspcherbluestrawberry, plums, a touch of fresh figs, blackberries, and a woodsy earthy walk through the brush with a little pine needle & tiny holiday friendly citrus tang on the back.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: mmmm deeper and warmer

This wine is delicious and so fits with the upcoming holidays. Definitely perfect with the turkey day dinner and especially with the following morning’s turkey & sage stuffing sandwiches. Also pairs well with stretchy pants, so take a cue from Carrie Underwood and pull up to the table prepared and pile it on. 🍷

“So bring on the turkey, potatoes, casserole dishes
‘Cause I ain’t messing around with them buttoned up britches
You got them skinny jeans on, girl, I feel sorry for you
‘Cause I just tried everything, and I’m going back for round two
I got my stretchy pants on (stretchy pants)
I got my stretchy pants on (stretchy, stretchy)
Spandex and Lycra, you better work it for me
‘Cause I’m about to expand this band of elasticity
I got my stretchy pants on (stretchy pants)
I got my stretchy pants on (stretchy, stretchy)”

Wine By Candlelight

Domaine de la Bergerie
La Cerisaie 2019
Anjou Rouge
AB certified
Champ sur Layon, France
Winemaking Guégniard family: Founded/bought in 1961 by Marie-Scolastique and has passed through the generations

Deep dark goth cherry velvet with a purple shimmer. Swirl and here comes scents of dried and fresh cherry, plums, fresh green bell pepper, olive pit, a bouquet garni of thyme & rosemary, and lilacs as it opens and later expands to a big bouquet of flowers. Nice juicy sipping here of plums, cherries, and here comes that bouquet garni again with coriander added in, a little oil cured black olives, and then here come running some elegant roses and lavender.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: juicy and smooth

Domaine de la Bergerie was purchased in 1961, through an auction known as vente à la bougie, which ok call me ignorant, but I had never heard of that before. Actually it’s a very cool, fair and civilized way of bidding (dating back to the 15th century) timed by the burning of candles. Each are around 30 seconds and the holders/candelabras are pretty cool. When the last candle is out, the auction is over. How exciting that moment must of been when Marie realized the property was now hers! The domaine has continued to be a family driven venture, and they’re in the 8th generation with daughters Anne and Marie. They’ve also brought a chef into the fold too (Anne’s husband David). So when you visit, you can also dine in his Michelin star restaurant, La Table de la Bergerie.
