Domaine De Chateaumar Cuvee Bastien – from the wine virgin

The first still wine of the night was a red called Domaine De Chateaumar Cuvee Bastien. The smell was a bit of a berry, not quite a dark berry like most red wines, and there was also a bit of an herbal scent. These flavors were mimicked in the taste. Overall, it was a very smooth wine.

It brought out the pepper and spices of the Eggs Rockefeller, the clam-filled deviled eggs. This was also reversed – the wine tasted spicier after having tasted the eggs. The pepper in the wine was not very powerful unless paired with the eggs. There was a small hint of cocoa in the smell and the finishing of the wine. Overall, it had a great balance but was still flavorful and complex – one of my favorites of the night!
