This is the start of a series called Drink This Wine. Some people have requested less foolishness and more wine recommendations. For the life of me I can’t figure that out. I will select a wine that I think you should buy and then tell you to buy it. You can also call this series Mr. Bossy Pants.
A simple Côtes du Rhône is always in order – CDR is made with Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre – GSM – and is the King of blended wines (with apologies to overpriced Bordeaux winemakers). Cellier des Dauphins – loosely translated as the Prince’s Cellar – is in a cool bottle and is on the light side of the CDR. I would serve it slightly chilled. I like it because the bottle reminds me of something that Napoleon would drink out of. Everything he did turned out fine.
