    Default [TN] Red wines in scorching weather (Coudert, Baudry)

    With temperatures in the 100s this week, one might expect that wine
    consumption would be limited to water and white wines (which it mostly
    was), we nonetheless popped the cork on a few red wines to accompany the
    steaks that we cooked on the grill on July 4.

    2010 Alain Coudert "Clos de Roilette" Fleurie
    nose: red fruit, floral notes
    palate: chalky tannins, fresh acidity

    2009 Bernard Baudry Chinon "Les Granges"
    nose: Band-Aids, smoky herbaceousness, dark cherry fruit
    palate: medium body, good acidity, chalky tannins

    Both wines were quite young and showed it, but the quality of both was
    quite evident. The Baudry sang with the steaks and the Coudert was a
    good all-around food wine, especially chilled for the scorching weather.
