It's been a great week of wine tasting and writing. I enjoyed browsing the wine section of the local grocery stores looking for different wines to try. I confess to being lured by some of the labels, but who could resist a lanky frog wearing a beret?
I also enjoyed figuring out which wine to pair with this week's meals, then sharing my discoveries. I only wish I had the vocabulary to describe the qualities of each wine I tasted.
And while it has no practical value, it was interesting to learn a few things about French wine. I now know the difference between a blend and a varietal, and understand the meaning of AOC and vin de pays. I stumbled on this webpage, "Introduction to French Wine Labels 101" which I found helpful.
Now, I just have to figure out what do to with so many open bottles of wine . . .
