Tasting Great Wines with the Swiss Ambassador!

We enjoyed a great tasting last night at the Swiss Ambassador’s Residence! The wines, food, and especially guests made the evening one to remember! My two favorite wines of the evening were:

2008 Adrian Mathier Fendant “Coteau de Sierre” AOC Valais– this white wine had great aromas of green apple and citrus. It’s medium body and acidity was the perfect compliment to the Raclette (traditional cheese from Switzerland severed melted over potatoes, gherkins, and onions- yum!)

2008 Trois Roses Red Blend AOC Aigle– this red wine was a blend of Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Mondeuse. It’s aromas of raspberries, leather, and spice mad it a delicious red wine to taste on it’s own or with cheeses and charcuterie.
