Well, no not really. Jose and I are not friends, so I don’t actually drink margaritas. However, the flavors and aromas I got from this bottle of wine inspired me to start singing (which trust me, no one actually wants to hear, it’s bad enough my poor husband has to put up with it!).
The bottle was a 2005 Chateau de Chasseloir Muscadet Sevre Et Maine Sur Lie. I picked this on up at the Curious Grape yesterday while browsing the shelves. The wine cost $10.99, had a cork closure and was 12% alcohol by volume. I didn’t pair it with anything, just used it as a sipping wine.
The juice in my glass was really aromatic. I also picked up some grapefruit on the nose. In the mouth, this wine displayed layers of minerals, then limes. And finally, oddly enough, and the key to my singing was that it was salty in the finish. I can honestly say I’ve never tasted salt in a glass of wine before.
So margaritas in a wine glass, it worked for me! I’d get the bottle again, good price and really an interesting wine.
