Wine Review: I had an opportunity to try this gem from Laetitia at the New York Wine Expo in March. This bright ruby colored wine opens with a very inviting cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is smooth as silk, well balanced, and has wonderful spicy strawberry flavors. The finish is dry and has soft tannins that drift away nicely. This beauty will pair perfectly with grilled salmon drizzled with a lemon butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Muscular and powerful yet silky and seductive the wine presents flavors of blackberry, cherry, and earth with the classic velvety texture that is the hallmark of this vineyard. The Les Galets has a sanguine quality balanced with crushed black pepper, black fruits, mocha, espresso, vanilla bean and cola accents. The 2006 Les Galets is a great match with grilled lamb, rib eye with a reduction sauce or a braised dish like coq au vin.
