It’s definitely warming up all over California so it definitely seems like the right time to feature some wines that pair with lighter foods and sunshine. One great pick for your summer sipping is 2011 Domaine Paul Blanck Pinot Blanc d’Alsace. Simple, clean flavors for around $15 a bottle!
This Pinot Blanc pours a regal gold in the glass. It opens with aromas of pineapple and pear. There are also some floral notes in the nose. The palate has tastes of tangy citrus, peach, and pear with healthy acidity. Uncomplicated and refreshing! (12.5% alcohol, $15)
My Wine Rating – B+
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with brie cheese, a summer salad topped with shrimp and scallops, or crab cakes.
