La Fleur Morange (taste #1)

As mentioned in previous posts, I cut back on the big red wines that are so good, but leave me with some reflux. However, I’ve found a temporary reflux patch that needed a test and I decided on this bottle, La Fleur Morange to give it a go.

The old saying goes like this: Buy on bread, sell on cheese. Looking for an honest palate, I cleared it with a piece of bread and gave the La Fleur Morange a swill. Very, very tasty indeed. Now, others have a different opinion of this wine and don’t we all. For me, it was slow to open, but contained all the great flavors I would expect from a crafted Bordeaux. And this producer is relatively new and working hard. The Grand Cru classification is well-deserved. This wine pairs with the usual suspects for me: veal, red sauce, and so on. Enjoy it or leave in the cellar for a few more years will it will surely get just a little bit better. Cheers!
