Wine Wednesdays

I recently had my cousin over for what we like to call "mezze night".  A smorgasbord of sorts, which can vary in region (Italian, middle eastern, Greek, and almost always hummus).  We sit, we chat, we nibble, we drink wine.  This time we had a mix of Italian meats and cheeses, dried fruits, pistachios, and veggies.


I chose a French white from the Loire Valley.  Reserve Des Cleons "Sur Lie" 2011.  The varietal was Melon, a grape I'd never heard of.  It had a relatively soft palate, slight mineral tones and a burst of effervescence up front.  Overall light and very easy to drink; it paired nicely with our meal.  And for $6.99 at Trader Joe's, I'm sure this will be making it into the rotation often in the future.
