My mom and I try to get together for dinner whenever we can. We live less than a mile apart, yet it seems to have been over a month since our schedules have aligned. We happened to make it work Tuesday night, and ended up at Mark’s in Dundee for dinner. It was half price wine night, so we needed a bottle to accompany our delicious dinner! The Pouilly-Fuisse immediately caught my eye as something familiar, though I could not identify why, and we thought it would be perfect.

Available at: Corkscrew Wine and Cheese
By the bottle: $13
Pairs well with: fish, mild cheeses and a sunny patio

Every once in awhile there is a bottle I think sounds amazing and piques my interest, I buy it, then promptly forget about it. When someone brings it to my attention again it’s the elation of initial discovery for a second time. This was one of those forgotten gems I had the opportunity to re-find.

By the bottle: 104.99
Pairs well with: A perfectly rare steak.
Try this if you like: earthy and big, yet elegant red wines, try this wine.
