2009 Chateau Le Touzinard, Grand Vin de Bordeaux ($12.99 at Whole Foods). Negociant, Presitige d’Aquitaine Blanquefore, Gironde. Alcohol level: 13.5%.

This was a ripe and readily drinkable wine imported by Luneau USA, Westport, CT. It gave a nice bouquet of red raspberries, and red cherries on the nose and upfront. There were plums and more red fruit, some complexity and minimal tannin in the middle, and nice but quick finish.

We challenged it with browned and quickly roasted rib eye steak, and a complex but delicious succotash. Even drank some with the dessert cake. It fulfilled its mission and was a very nice wine for 13 bucks.
