FRENCH WINES, SANS THE ATTITUDE! DON’T
BE SQUARE! TAKE A DETOUR WITH TOTALLY
Macon Villages 3-Litre Tube $37
Who would think
that three powerhouses in premium wines and fine dining could change
their stripes at this stage of their illustrious careers? But, it
Lafon, Sommelier Daniel Johnnes and Chef Daniel Boulud have collaborated
to bring us dtour wine, a premium quality Chardonnay packaged in
a tube. This modern & creative design eliminates injuries incurred
by common box wine’s “square” design and bad rep.
dtour’s tube fits conveniently in the refrigerator. It comes
with a top carry handle and easy to use pouring spigot. A plastic
bladder inside keeps the air out and the wine fresh for weeks. Made
from 100% Macon-Villages Chardonnay, this wine is an extraordinary
value for everyone’s budget. The dtour tube holds 3 liters
of wine, which is the equivalent of 4-standard 750 ml bottles.
This wine is
a beautifully vinted young Chardonnay that is fermented in stainless
steel. We noticed delicate peach tones, hints of vanilla and a round/nice
mouth feel. Pair this wine with poultry, shellfish dishes or sip
it for any occasion. Think outside the box and take a detour to
your wine retailer for a tube of dtour today! This delightful wine
is destined to be a blockbuster! A companion Rhone red is scheduled to be released later in the year.
