Raclette Tonight! Wine Suggestions?
We're just about out of everyday wine at home but what we do have is Louis Jadot beaujolais-village, Pierre Sparr riesling and PS gewurztraminer, and Pierre Sparr "Alsace One", a blend of riesling, pinot blanc, muscat, gewurztraminer, and pinot gris. Also Chateau St Michelle (WA state) pinot gris. They're nothing special, all inexpensive bottles. I do really like the LJ beaujolais, though. Might be my favorite inexpensive bottle. It's a bit embarrassing revealing the state of our wine situation just now but there you are.
Really need a trip to the wine shop.
If I don't leave the building at all today, can we get by with any of these? If shopping works out, what do you recommend I pick up? Under $20. would be best.
Thank you in advance.
The traditional match is a dry white from the Valais or Savoie (e.g. Fendant, Crépy, Apremont, Chignin). Your Alsatian blend might do the trick, provided it isn't particularly sweet or from a low-acid vintage like 2003. For a red, you'll be hard pressed to find a better match than a Bojo, with the possible exception of light, supple reds from the Jura, Savoie and Switzerland.
