A Delicious Bordeaux
I am a bit ashamed to admit that up until a couple of months ago, I have never ventured into Maria's in Greensboro. But there was a need, a need for quiche, and word on the street was that Maria's makes a rockin' quiche. I actually really like to make quiche (or egg pie as Jeff calls it) we will eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. But this was for a brunch at a busy time when I could Not. Do. Another. Thing. So there was not going to be any whipping up of a quiche for brunch. Boy was I glad that I made the visit, both for the store AND for some of the best quiche I have had in my life.
When I stopped in, I also grabbed a bottle of this red Bordeaux.
If you are not familiar with Bordeaux, pretty simply said, it refers to a blend of grapes, red or white, typically used to make wine in Bordeaux, France. While I was looking at the different Bordeaux's, Maria told me that she had tasted all of them. You know, I really appreciate that level of quality control from a store that I'm purchasing wine from. She also said that 2010 was a very good year for Bordeaux. I am inexperienced in the world of Bordeaux, but if Maria says it's a good year, I trust that it's a good year. And by the way the wine tastes, I would say it was a good year for sure. I really enjoyed this wine, it went great with food and also was really good by itself. I would say it tasted like I paid more than $12.99. So if you are in Greensboro, you can swing in and get a bottle, or a bottle and a quiche, or just a quiche, the world is your oyster. If your not in Greensboro and you can't find this wine, perhaps it is a good reason to try another 2010 Bourdeaux!
Just a reminder that if you do consume alcohol, it should be consumed in moderation. According to the dietary guidelines that our government has set, moderation is up to 1 serving of alcohol a day for women and up to 2 for men. 1 serving of alcohol is defined generally as 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, and 1 1/2 ounces of liquor.
