Weekly Wine – Dauphins

24 May

Cellier Des Dauphins Carte Noire Cdr AOC
2013
France
750ml
13% ABV
$10.00 (LCBO)

This is nice.
The first taste is like whoa! It ain’t right. You are expecting something different. Something worse.
But here it is – French wine that is exactly ten bucks Canadian and the label looks like it cots way more.
And it tastes real nice.
It looks good in a glass – in a crystal wine glass or in the kids glass that I use that has a picture of a lion on it. The colour is a nice maroon deep red.
The flavour is bold with berries and a bit of spice that is hard to pin down. That little bit of spice that makes living so nice. It is a fine wine – in fact one of the better ones that I’ve had in these reviews. It is a 2013 vintage so that actually makes it fairly well aged for the wines in this lowdown category. Wines under ten bucks tend to be a year old. This one has nearly four years behind it.
Is it a lost wine from the mythical French wine lake that is being sold of cheaply in the new world? If so they can get more than a simple sawbuck for this wine.
Get this wine before it is gone.
