Peace Offering…

28 Oct

It’s been so long, dear readers. I know it’s all my fault. I can’t blame BC for sucking the energy out of me, or the cold weather sapping inspiration, or even the Packers ridiculously close losses in recent weeks for shoving me in a corner, sulking and rocking back and forth. I’ve simply been caught up in this windstorm called life, but I have made a promise to write more often.

To counteract the eerie silence that has been The Corkscrew for so long – I present the following as my appeasement to the Wine Blog Gods.

This here, folks, is what everyone is after. I can’t tell you how many text messages I get from family and friends asking for exactly what this bottle delivers.

Rémy Pannier’s Anjou isn’t just affordable (but it is – LCBO#5967, $12.10). It isn’t just refreshing and balanced (but it is – with pear, apple and honeyed notes that would be outstanding with everything from hors d’oeuvres like crisps topped with goat cheese and cherry preserves to mains based on everything from the sea, oysters and lobsters especially). It isn’t just special and different (but it is – Chenin Blanc is approachable without being boring and overdone). It isn’t just from a popular, substantial wine growing country like France (but it is – from the AOC Anjou region of the Loire Valley that’s known for fantastic whites). It isn’t just an InterVin award winning bottle (but it is – and a best value one at that). It’s the whole package.

The best part? There’s more when this comes from. Take a look at the InterVin Best Values list and hunt them down. Trust me, this list is way more helpful than texting me.
