I did this tasting several years ago and never posted it.
I thought now would be an excellent time to share this tasting.
One of the first wines I tasted from a wine club I was in was the 2015 Pas ordinaries Saint-Chinian Blend red wine. I fell in love with it. Here is what the WineC site says about it.
An anything-but-ordinary, all-natural red made from the Languedoc’s classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Carignane. Take it straight from the maker — Pas Ordinaire is “rugged, pure, and exhilarating.
I have served this wine with a couple of different dishes. They suggest it be served with stews and braised meats. They also recommend lamb, cassoulet, stuffed eggplant, Camembert. The recipe with the wine as a suggested pairing was French Inspired Cheese Fondue.
I found it went well with pizza…
….and with Chicken Marsala
They said it smells like white pepper, mint, red currant, raspberry, and rhubarb. When I did my tasting, the best description I could come with as far as the aroma was “fruit”:-)
They describe spices, herbs, lavender, and soft tannins on the palate with a peppery finish. My description was fruit:-) Granted, I have a lot to learn!
If I had a million dollars, I would take a trip to the location of origin of this beautiful wine. That means I would be going to France. Saint-Chinian, France.
Yes, you are right. I can’t afford to go to France, but I can pretend, and I can pretend while sipping a delicious glass of 2015 Pas ordinaries Saint Chinian Blend wine:-)
Happy Wine Sipping!
