Le Grand Verre

*Sponsored Post
Interested in trying new French wine, but don't want to risk opening a whole bottle? Try these glass sized bottles from Le Grand Verre Wines.
Un Grand Verre translates to ‘A Big Glass’ so these are 6.3 oz! Larger than other wine sample offerings, plus all wines are from family estates and rated 90+ points. Preset boxes of 4 are available, or build your own customizable boxes to mix-and-match varieties.

I sampled a mix of white and red including the 2018 Clos Roussely, Sauvignon Blanc from Loire Valley, Touraine.  The Loire Valley is where Sauvignon Blanc was born and produces complex, citrusy wines with amazing length.  This particular glass had light notes of peach and white flower.

The second white was the 2018 Anjou “Vieilles Vignes”, Chenin Blanc from Loire Valley, Anjou.  The nose of honey and apricot with a fine bouquet of floral aromas emphasizes the alliance of Chenin and Chardonnay in this glass.  There is slight more wood undertones than the other white wine.

For the reds, we tried the 2017 Domaine de la Pagerie, Pinot Noir from Loire Valley, Reuilly.   The bouquet of fruit featuring cherry and raspberry were balanced with violet flowers, and almost tasted like cherry cola. 

Keith preferred the 2017 Stolen Ruby, Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot blend from Bordeaux, Haut Medoc.  The typical Bordeaux earthiness of this wine is superbly balanced with a pretty bouquet of blackberry and vanilla.

I was truly impressed with the high quality of these wines, and am already looking forward to trying something new in my next box. Are you intrigued?
