Domaine de la Chanade "Les Rials" Loin de l'Oeil Sur Lie Vin de Pays des Cotes du Tarn 2012 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Fragrant floral notes and pear intertwined on the bouquet

Medium bodied on the palate

Lightly sweet fruit finish with honey and floral notes balanced by just enough acidity

Summary:

Without a doubt, this is my wine of the Summer! It tastes great, has an interesting profile, and is easy to sip on a warm day. Best of all, it's only $10. In fact, I bought a case on sale for $8.

If that's not enough, it's made in Southwestern France from an ancient wine grape that's rarely used today. This domaine has helped to resurrect this now exotic varietal- Loin de l'Oeil- and for good reason. With results like this, it never should have been lost to time. Chill it down and enjoy it on a warm afternoon. Raise a glass!
