Les Rocs de Plaisance 2005

image By Caleb Cronk

This is a cheeky little simple Red Bordeaux that is earthy, light, and with a long finish. 100 percent Merlot grapes and coming from “old world” terrior gives you “stony” flavors in the front, light fruit in the middle, and finishes long with a “cassis” flavor. This is a polite wine with higher tannins and lower acid is a great compliment to cuts of beef, tomato sauces, and is even light enough to compliment robust cuts of pork and gamier meats. At about $15 a bottle this is a great French wine that has versatile applications.
