The Best French Wine Under $20
1/ Le Rabault, Joseph Mellot, Sancerre Rouge
Ruby, this red in the land of white, expresses the fruitiness of Pinot Noir. We appreciate the memory of raspberry and cherry from the beautiful days that it leaves on the palate. A touch of toasted notes, it will be perfect with Christmas poultry or a berry log.

2/ Château Fleur Haut Gaussens – Bordeaux Supérieur 2016
This superior Bordeaux, which mainly consists of Merlot, has character. Combined with spicy fillings, forest flavors and red meats, it develops notes of blackberry and well-supported undergrowth.

3/ Domaine de la Pirolette Saint-Amour 2017
It is at the top of a hill, in the heart of the village of Saint-Amour, that the 15 hectares of vineyards of the Domaine de la Pirolette flourish. This delicious cru, with strawberry flavors, has airs of violet and blueberry too.

4/ 2016 François Villard Saint-Joseph Poivre et Sol
Stuffed quail or crusted fillet of beef on the menu? This Saint-Joseph responds by its presence, its silky and its fine peppery notes. A balanced vintage that lingers on the palate.
