Madeleine L’Arsouille Chenin Blanc 2015 – Value $20.00
The Chenin Blanc is from Monterey, California. It had a lot of mineral acidity and was quite crisp. I didn’t think it had a smooth finish and honestly I just didn’t love it. I hadn’t chilled it prior to drinking so please excuse the ice in my glass. We drank it at a barbecue, hence the chips and dip!
Ouled Thaleb Signature 2013
This wine is from Morocco, a first for me I believe. We enjoyed this earthy red, though not as much as some other reds we’ve tried from Plonk. It was full-bodied and complex. We paired it with Italian take-out: linguine with garlicky clams for me and pizza for my hubby.
Verdict: This Plonk Wine Club shipment wasn’t my favorite, but the red was pretty good. Now that weather is turning colder where we live I’m going to switch to the Plonk shipments of two reds a month. It can be overwhelming going to a local wine shop and deciding what to buy. Having Plonk do the work for us is a nice treat. I’d like to note that if you fall in love with one of the wines they send you can order an entire case at a 16% discount with free shipping. If you appreciate being introduced to new wine from wineries with organic growing practices, this is a nice subscription to try out.
