Domaine de l’Octavin, Vin de France Trousseau “Les Corvées”, 2012

IMG_3640.JPGIntentionally labeled as a Vin de France, not an Arbois. The appellation wouldn’t allow the name due to the alchohol content falling below the minimum 10% (it rests at 9.8%). Very versatile, fun wine that is as light as a rosé but has the body and texture of a red. This particular bottle was shared with friends at a Chinese food/wine throw-down, and went incredibly well with salt & pepper shrimp, clams, lobster and pea shoots.
