Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Calgary Zoo. I tend to go once per year to honour that our fine city has a good one. It was a perfect Tuesday afternoon of strolling and gawking, not yet swarming with summer crowds and warm, but not a scorcher.
This idea struck last week when a co-worker and I were naming our favourite wines in the shop for a certain price point. Under $30, under $50, etc. As we contemplated the best rapport qualité prix, or best value for price wines in the shop, I started to realize how many of them I’ve personally stashed away.
Option 1: $71.33
Bubbles: Paul Mas Côté Mas Frisante, Sud de France
Charming sparkles made mostly of the Piquepoul grape known for its delicate flavours and zippy acidity.
White: Domaine La Vista ‘Collection’, Côtes Catalanes
Delightful blend of six different Southern French varietals. Dry, zesty, aromatic.
Red: Beauregard ‘Les Belouzes’, Beaujolais-Villages
Gleeful Gamay in a juicy & fruity style.
