Domaine de la Chapelle des Bois Fleurie 2007, France - $42

Went to Uchiko with the Italy crew - DT and VT had never been before!

This wine retails for $42/bottle at Uchiko. It is 100% Gamay, which is great with sushi.

Aroma - tart cherries and spice
Taste - tart cherries, very dry, very acidic, moderate tannins

Yum! Went great with all of the fabulous food we had today, including P-38 (Japanese yellowtail, avocado, yuzu kosho, grilled negi, cilantro) and other rolls, Uchi Salad (hydroponic baby romaine, jalapeño edamame), Crispy Brussels Sprouts (with lemon chili), Karaage (fried marinated chicken, sansho pepper, seasonal pickle), Tempura Onion Rings (togarashi, white soy), Suzuki Yaki (grilled Mediterranean sea bass, tomato, mint, thai chili), Hot Rock (“sear it yourself” Wagyu beef, Japanese river rock), and Wagyu Shortrib (with smoked grape, almond, chive blossoms).
