Never Mind the Pistols, Here's Vin de Bagnole, 60 Percent Gamay

Music and wine pairings...

Marc Isaye, (drummer) director of Classic 21 (a radio station i guess), and wineshop owner Laurent Mélotte, gave it a shot in Dégustation de vins en musique : on écoute quoi avec ça ? for Le Vif/ L' Express, a Belgian news weekly.

Laurent wrote the tasting notes, Marc the music review.

One that did not require too much Soul Searching on their part was On s’en Bat Les Couilles (Vin de Bagnole) 2008 – Domaine du Pré Noir by Pascal Simonutti - VDT (Red Table Wine).


Certified organic, a blend 60% Gamay and 40% Pineau d'Aunis (old vines 30 to 80 years old), Vin de Bagnole (Bagnole is a slang word for car) is obviously a take on the infamous Sex Pistols straight from the Loire Valley.

Alternate Version (Label) for Vin de Bagnole is 'Boire Tue' (Drinking Kills).

Thanks to Eva Robineau for spinning this wine.

A light pour on Sunday
