Jacques Chollet and his wife Sandra make this seductive wine in a charming vineyard some 50 miles east of the city of Bordeaux. Here they grow both vines and plums, with rare passion and enthusiasm. The village name of Sainte Gemme (Saint James) dates back to when this part of France was ruled by the English. And their specialty remains what the English used to call ‘luncheon claret’: unpretentious wine that is a delicious drink. The 2010 shows the bright, pure fruit of the vintage. It’s a classic blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Food match: grilled rib-eye steaks (or entrecote as the French call it), either with your favorite dry-rub or with a shallot-laced red wine reduction sauce bordelaise).
