When the weather cools I look for a wine with more body and warmth.  The Cassegrain 2009 Edition Noir Merlot is a vibrant, ruby red wine with the aroma of deep rich fruit and the flavour of luscious sweet plums.  It is a medium bodied red, with a gorgeous velvety mouth feel. The wine has benefited from new and season oak giving it a lovely soft well rounded appeal.

  1. Just on time. I added a bottle of merlot today at the supermarket, while thinking about a boeuf bourguignon. Those shanks are an even better idea!

  2. I love a good merlot. That is an expensive bottle by our price standards 🙂

  3. Wow! The way you describe wine may convert me to drinking more often =) As for your tart au chocolat – oo la la! Love the gem of a pecan topping, too. Mille fois mercy pour votre recipe =)

  4. I know that feeling all too well, of enjoying the hearty dishes in front of a cozy fire when it gets cold out. 🙂 The dishes featured here look great for such endeavors. 🙂
