Mouton Cadet Bordeaux

Friday evening is a time for letting down and relaxing after the busy week, and I like to keep dinner very simple.

And for the first time in weeks we've had a break in the cold weather, so I couldn't resist using the grill to prepare a variety of sausages for this evening's dinner. Savory and spicy, saucisses need to be paired with a bold wine and this Mouton Cadet Bordeaux was a good match.

Unlike several of the wines I tasted this week, I was familiar with the Mouton Cadet label, but its $8.98 price tag reminded me that it should be included in this week's series. Besides, it would be a huge faux pas to do a series on French wine and not include a bordeaux, n'est-ce pas?
