This is my first post for the month of June and might well be the last too.
I have been busy lately preparing for our trip to Eastern US and Canada and I am now all ready!
Time flies and it has been more than six months since CJ and Jazz uprooted themselves and the kids from this little red dot and moved to the the other side of the planet. For months, the Tans and us had planned for this trip to visit our friends in Canada and this would be a great reunion for the three families.
In a way, wine brought us together and played an important part in our friendships. We had many great TGIF drinking sessions together and had shared and enjoyed many of the wine that were featured in this blog.
During the last TGIF session before the trip, Alan brought this bottle of Pomerol and it was delicious! Especially when we had it with the pan seared foie gras on toasted baguette that I prepared. (I had to clear my fridge before our trip - this was the remaining half liver from wife's birthday dinner).
In the Bordeaux region of south-western France, Pomerol is a much-respected red wine appellation. Merlot is the dominant grape in Pomerol and plays a large part in making the wine rich, smooth and approachable and Cabernet Frac is often added to provide structure and an element of savory spice. Due to the limited production of this small, quality-focused appellation and also because they are relatively long-lived, Pomerol wines are very much sought after globally.
This Pomerol from Chateau La Croix St Georges is medium-bodied and very well structured. With a firm tannins and a lovely texture, the wine gives a smoky finish with great depth. Absolutely beautiful!
Besides my family, three of my favorite things to enjoy in my daily life are good friends, good food and a good bottle of wine. It was perfect when I got to enjoy them all at the same time that night!
