Introducing BLT's Wine of the Week (No.13)

Tamino 2008
AOC Saumur Puy-Notre-Dame
Domaine de la Paleine

This week Gérald has selected Tamino 2008, 100% cabernet franc, produced by Domaine de la Paleine as his wine of the week

The result of a hand picked harvest, a maceration of 21 days, and a fermentation in brand new French oak barrels for a further 14 months has created a beautifully rounded, full bodied oaked red wine with a lovely silkiness.

Tamino 2008 is being served alongside filet mignon de porc poelée paysannes, and as a popular choice Les Tontons has only a limited number of this vintage left.

Hallbus Vin at Bistrot Les Tontons

Lärt mig något nytt, äppelkompott med kanel och sött friskt vin från Vouvray, Loire. Sött vin med markerad syra som tar upp syrligheten i kompotten, mmmm testa! 

(Translation by Bing): Learned something new, Apple Compote with cinnamon and sweet fresh wine from Vouvray, Loire. Sweet wine with a marked acidity that take up the tartness in kompotten, mmmm test!
