More about this wine from Buzet, France (Southwest France)
The Domaine du Bois de Simon AKA the name of this kickass winery in the Southwest of France that will celebrate its 90th birthday this year. Christophe Avi is the great-grandson of the founder and joined the estate in 1992. This estate is super boutique and only covers about 80 acres of land. Avi spearheaded transitioning the vines to organic and sustainable, in an effort to ensure the property remains as awesome as it is for another 90 years.

The juice is a beautiful cherry hue that is like solid foreshadowing in an episode of Big Little Lies... lots of dramatic flavors will ensue. One fun fact about this vino is that it does not have any residual sugar. Don't let that confuse you, the wine is juicy and jammy but not overloaded with sugar, which has gotta help the hangovers. The nose is beaming with tiny berries like blueberries, red raspberries, cherries, and cranberries. On the palate, these tiny flavor orbs swirl together with silky, velvety tannins.

This fruity juice gets even better with a hamburger straight off the grill. We upped our burger game by topping it with some blue cheese and pineapple slices!
