My good friend Jean Pascal is a highly skilled Sommelier/Consultant who runs a successful business in the south of France specializing in the wines of Provence and the Cote D’Azur. He has forgotten more about Claret, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet than I will ever learn in my lifetime, but has graciously agreed to let me take full advantage of his expertise here at Le Stuff.

Hamburger (medium rare) with french fries.
Jean Pascal’s Selection(s):
Château Plaisance 2008. A.O.C. Fronton.
Negrette (local grape variety), Syrah, Cabernet-Franc. Located in the Tarn region in South-west of France.
A deep red color, genuine, very well-balanced with some typical aromas from the Negrette grape variety – red fruit, spices, and black pepper with a liquorice finish. A good match for a tasty burger and fries. The softness of the tannins complements the smoothness of the meat.
Domaine Des Annibals 2009 – “Suivez-moi-jeune-homme”. A.O.C. Côteaux Varois en Provence
Cinsault & Grenache
A wonderful pink color with a hint of white peach – refreshing with a very long finish.
