10-15-12 Word On Wine Review Fiagre?????

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | Comments Off on 10-15-12 Word On Wine Review Fiagre?????

This week Mary Zajac (MZ) and I Jonathan Palevsky (JP) review two charming whites!

1)2011 Macon Laroche-Vineuse.  Domaine Allain Normand.  $18.  Macon Laroch-Vineuse is in beautiful southern Burgundy and if you don’t want to pay a fortune for your Chardonnay this is a reasonably priced option.

2)2011 Fiagre.  The producer was Cantine Antonio Caggiano.  $21.  This wine hailed from Campagna and was a blend of Fiano di Avellino and Grecho di Tufo.  Hence the name…Fiagre!  Not a sipper this is a wine with lots of character and personality!  Like Jethro the Percheron it’s going to walk right up to you,  stick its nose in your face and say HI!
