2009 Chateau Haut Treytin Bordeaux

Paired with Roadst Pork & Creamed  Spinach.

Andre’ — “This is a straight forward, old world style Bordeaux. What some might call austere, I find inviting. This wine reminds me of the Mondavi Cab. from a decade or two ago. Nice fruit acid balance, strong but velvety tannins. In my mind this is what Red Wine is supposed to be. Not the overly fruity, alcoholic stuff that so many wineries are turning out lately. I like the way this wine is drinking today, I like the way the flavors change in the glass, and I am also thinking of buying a case to see how it develops over the next few years.

As far as food, I like a nice piece of lamb with Bordeaux, but any protein will do. roast a chicken or pork loin, grill a steak, make some nice potatoes and finish it off with creamed spinach.

For 8 servings you will need 2 pounds of spinach, some olive oil, a few cloves of garlic, Wondra Flour, 1 cup heavy cream, and some Parmesan cheese.

crush the garlic and warm it in the oil. Remove it when it starts to sizzle. Add a big handful of spinach and dust with the wondra. Continue to add, stir, and dust until all of the spinach is in the pan. Now add the heavy cream and stir constantly to a boil. Finish with the cheese and check for salt and pepper. Adjust consistency as needed. Enjoy this spinach with your roast and a very affordable example of a delicious Bordeaux.”

From the winemaker:

“The 2009 Chateau Haut Treytin is a vibrant purple in color, supple, and bursting with ripe spice and berry aroma. The bright fruit is balanced by a heady spiciness that tames the power by adding a light rustic quality. Alternating between strength and finesse, floral aromas dominate the lengthy finish, adding depth to a true gem that will continue to evolve for 10–15 years.”
