Chateau Roudier St. Emilion 2006


John Wine Snob Says:Thomas Jefferson once said, “Every man has two countries; his own and France.” He was certainly the truest American patriot, but to be sure, he was also a great Francophile and oenophile. I could not agree with Mr. Jefferson more. Je suis Francophile, je suis oenophile, et j’ai le joie de vivre. As much as I love California wines there is a certain je ne sais quoi about French wines that simply cannot be matched anywhere. Today I opened a 2006 Chateau Roudier from St. Emilion and nearly shed a tear. It had that dusty earthiness one expects from a French wine. It had that dusty earthy flavor along with a certain charming aloofness and refinement that French women have. Vivre la france mes amis.


I will give this one quatre etoilles.

  1. Try this with fumunda cheese from Rosanne Barr and that will make you fart dusty earthiness.
