week 2 of the bachelorette is complete and whoa, what twists and turns in this last episode. i mean who doesn’t love the drama behind the new “villain” of the house. every season, there has to be someone. and with our weekly bachelorette viewing, we had to have our most important selection of the evening – the vino.
we decided on a little bolder of a wine this week – a 2012 chateau duplessis moulis en medoc, bordeaux. this wine actually comes from what we would consider the largest of the famous regions of bourdeax, however from one of the communes farther inland called moulis. it is typically stated that due to the commune being away from the river, the wines are normally heavier coming from less-well-drained soils. thank you for all of the knowledge, wine bible. to the taste, this wine was extremely full-bodied with strong dark fruit flavors. absolutely delicious and a perfect pair to the chili we made for dinner.
check in next week to see our featured “bachelorette” wine of the week – i may even sneak in a second one considering it’s a double episode week.
until next time.
