There are plenty of good high-priced bottles of wine on the market. But that doesn’t mean I want to spend $50+ dollars for a casual evening. Fortunately, there are also plenty of good affordable bottles as well. And this week’s suggestion from David is the perfect example. We’re talking the Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur 2009.
According to David, “If you like Châteauneuf du Pap, but don’t want to shell out the money for it, this is a good alternative. It drinks like a baby Châteauneuf: ripe with a little spice and anise.” And at $19 a bottle, this Syrah and Grenache blend offers big flavor at little damage to your wallet.
