Foggy winter evenings in Northern Cali have me yearning for comfort food- especially the European variety!
Steamed artichoke is as good an excuse as any to open a bottle of Haut-Médoc 🍷 (not that I need much convincing...)
Wines from the Médoc region are smooth and friendly and love to be paired with food 🥘
This is about as simple a recipe as you can find:
1. Trim top third of artichoke
2. Using force mash back the leaves a bit from center to create space between them
3. Sprinkle garlic, pecorino or Parmesan and some oregano (if you fancy it) in amongst the leaves
4. Sit artichoke in pot of hot water (coming one third of the height of the artichoke)
5. Steam for 25mins
Simple, elegant and pretty!
How very French! 😬 🇫🇷 Bon appetit! 🍷
As for Château Sénéjac... I ordered it as a selection of wines on an online order. It was SO good that I ordered a half case upon tasting it!
You’re welcome 😇
Happy Christmas holiday to you all from ,#vin
This week’s Perfect Peculiar Pair is from @andyromano.
The countdown to Christmas 🎄 The subtle notes of apricot and freshly baked sourdough of our Rosé work in harmony with the Italian Christmas favourite Panettone. .
Submit in the comments below 👇 which peculiar food you would like to see paired next week and win. .
Buy 1 to taste now and 2 for aging for next 5 to 10 years. Another QPR organic wine from Collemassari, this time with addition of Cabernet Sauvignon to the blend! Sweet spices, licorice, plum with hints of tobacco that should evolve with aging, on the palate medium acidity and dark fruits.
Купите одну попробовать и две бутылки на хранение в течение следующих 5-10 лет. Еще одно натуральное QPR вино от Collemassari, на этот раз с добавлением Каберне. Сладкие специи, лакрица, слива с намеками на табак, который должен усилиться по мере старения, средняя кислотность и тёмные фрукты во вкусе.
Pērciet vienu lai nobaudīt uzreiz un divas pudeles uzglabašanai uz 5 līdz 10 gadiem. Vēl viens organiskais QPR vīns no Collemassari, šoreiz ar Cabernet Sauvignon pievienošanu. Saldas garšvielas, lakrica, plūme ar tabakas notīm, kas attīstieses vīnam novēcojot. Vidējas skābums un tumšo augļu garša.

Beautiful Tannat from de Lucca, with nose of plum, cassis, fleshy blueberry, tobacco, petrichor, leather, cinnamon, thyme, pepper... In the mouth, ripe and full with waves of tannin and refreshing acidity, finishing long and dry on a note of moscovado sugar. #Uruguay

Half bottle is perfect for weekday consumption.
Vidal Fleury Crozes-Hermitage 2015 was deep opaque purple with no sediments. It had reticent nose of plum, ceder, beef jerky and spices. Sweet dark fruits aroma developed 30 minutes in glass. On the mouth, it showed ripe and tea-like tannin, medium acidity, full body, with mineral and slightly bitter finish. It had the fruits, the body and the ripe tannin of typical Crozes-Hermitage from the same vintage.
Fun fact: Vidal Fleury is the longest continuously operating winery and negociant in the Rhone Valley, and was visited by Thomas Jefferson in 1787. It was purchased by Guigal in 1984, while being operated separately (WineSearcher, 2016). Charizard Pikachu reminds you to drink responsibly.
