Wine of the Day
Marc Bredif 2005 Chinon: This wine was a gift and I stuck in in the cellar and quite frankly forgot about until I went down to look for something else. I like Chinon, it is an often overlooked region that when good can be spectacular. This wine is tightly fruit focused with just enough tannin, extra dry and paired perfectly with Tuna steak. I am still savoring it. 100% Cab Franc and one of the best examples of it's class.
It would be tacky to look up the price of a gift (until of course I look to purchase some) but I can't imagine you will find it for much under $20.00 per bottle.
