A few months ago I had the chance to attend a wine tasting with MONVIN.LU. At that time I received different wines to try at home. I thought that it would be fun to share them with my family and have a wine tasting at my parents' house.
I bought various types of delicious cheeses and once everything was set up, we tasted one wine at a time.
Reviewing from left to right:
Tentations by Clos Cibonne 2014 | Provence
A pale, light and fresh white wine, which would go very well with seafood. The very first sip may seem acidic but this impression somehow disappears as you go along. Rating 7/10.
Pastel by Domaine de La Réaltière 2014 | Provence
This rosé was the least favourite. It bubbles up in your mouth but then it doesn't leave any aftertaste. Rating 3/10.
Vermentino by Domaine Saint Hilaire 2014 | Languedoc
More yellow-gold than Tentations, this was our favourite white wine. Crisp and fruity, it leaves a nice aftertaste. Rating 9/10.
Les Béates Rouge 2012 by Domaine Les Béates | Provence
This opulent wine was our favourite red wine. It had a touch of red fruits to it and it was a delight to have it together with the strong flavoured cheeses. Rating 10/10.
Cuvée des Quarante by Domaine du Grand Arc 2012 | Roussillon
Bitter and earthy were the descriptions that came to mind when we tried this red wine. We liked it but not as much as Les Béates Rouge 2012. Rating 8/10.
I want to thank once more Pascal of MONVIN.LU for making my family and me discover these great quality wines. Visit his online store to see the amazing selection that he has in stock.
