This Domaine Monpertuis Cuvée Counoise 2005 is made from the French grape Counoise (which is usually a blending grape). The nose is black pepper and ripe fruit. In the mouth it is acidic and alcoholic but in a good way with spice and a peppy finish.
I will serve this wine tonight with leftovers and a fresh salad — it was a long day at work. And, it is my birthday and Tom chose this wine especially for me. What more could a girl want? Cheers!
