"I'm going to someone's house for dinner. I don't know what they're serving. What should I bring?" Bring this. A sip of this deep red wine will not only transport you geographically but also through time, back to the 18th century on the lavish country estate of Count Henri de Colbert located near Languedoc’s capital, Montepelier, in the south of France. “Les Comtes” Rouge was first released in 2007 as a tribute wine. A blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre, the nose clearly brings forth red berry and spicy scents that are both intense and complex. On the palate, it is as rich and opulent as its aristocratic origin. There is no mistaking the gorgeous balance of ripe red fruits with a tinge of spiciness that add to its depth. Again, this is a lovely wine for sipping, but is equally ideal for serving with grilled meats or alongside a cheese platter of medium cheeses such as some of the lighter goat or sheep cheeses or even a medium to sharp cheddar.
