Wine of the Week for October 23, 2006

Chat-en-Oeuf 2003 - $ 12.95
Style: R1

Watch for more bottles coming out of France with a non-traditional approach to naming and labeling. This light ruby-garnet coloured wine shows modest aromas of raspberry, cedar and pencil lead. Light but flavourful, with just a hint of sweetness and soft tannins. This pleasant blend of Grenache and Syrah is more in the style and weight of Beaujolais, and would work well with stews, sausages or something off the grill . (LCBO 21113)

The name is funny. I don't think I've seen or even heard of this one before. I'm gonna have to look it up!
