RED WINE | 750ML | FRANCE | 2017 | 13.5 %
In French, a “gargote” is a restaurant or brasserie that serves quality, often locally produced food at affordable prices. To Franck Putelat, this ideal was an inspiration. Having opened his double Michelin star res-taurant, Franck wanted to spread his passion with a wider audience by opening, in 2016, the Brasserie à 4 Temps. Situated in the historical cen-tre of Carcassonne, the brasserie offers local products in the form of innovative, gastronomic dishes, at affordable prices. Named “the Bras-serie of 4 times” in English, Franck and his chefs change the restaurant’s menu four times a year. This way, they can provide new dishes, made from seasonal products, a concept appreciated both by the locals and the many tourists of Carcassonne.
This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which is what gives it this deep ruby red colour.
You can really smell the ripe blackcurrant notes at first, then you get lovely smoky and peppery hints that tickle your nose.
The palate is rich, it’s like silk on your tongue. There is a slight acidity from the tannins but it goes perfectly with the coffee notes in the finish. You can also enjoy this wine with other red meats, stews, meat balls with spaghetti, duck breasts or dark chocolate deserts…
