Bonjour Mes Amis,

You need to come in tout de suite because I received a dream pallet from French Feast this week, plus some delicious items from D’Artagnan. I’m so busy putting it all away that I don’t have time to give you a recipe or even tell you all that came. I’ve been calling some people who have been waiting for things like French flour.

Yes, I managed to get French flour for you!

à la vôtre !

TWO HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BORDEAUX’S

Chateau Labegorce 2009, Margaux $40

“Labegorce’s 2009 comes from a property that now includes the former estate Labegorce-Zede, which has been absorbed completely into this attractive vineyard just to the north of Chateau Margaux. They have excelled in this vintage. Dense ruby/purple, with notes of creosote, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit, this is a rich, medium to full-bodied wine with loads of character and depth. It is usually one of the better values of Bordeaux and it certainly stands out as a major sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. ” -90 points, Wine Advocate

Chateau L’Ecuyer, Pomerol 2010 $52
“Creamy and inviting, with dark raspberry, blackberry coulis and steeped plum fruit gliding along, carried by licorice snap, Lapsang souchong tea and singed apple wood notes. Fleshy but well-defined, driven to the finish by embedded structure. Best from 2015 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.”– 92 points, Wine Spectator
