Chinon, Loire Valley, France
François Rabelais, Chinon native and noted French author, was a local notable known for toasting "Beauvez toujours, vous ne mourrez jamais." Roughly translating to "drink always and never die", we can't help but appreciate his attitude. The bouquet of this wine is brimming with black pepper, sage, and prunes, while the tongue is engulfed with flavors of raspberries, thyme, and green pepper. Pair this wine with Camembert, pork belly, or lentil soup.
