Wine of the Week: 2009 Domaine Ferrer Ribiere 'Le F'
(Gina Ferazzi / Los Angeles Times)
2009 Domaine Ferrer Ribière "Le F"
Here's an ideal summer white from the Cotes Catalanes, a wine region near Perpignan in the south of France. Crisp and dry, with an extravagant scent of white peaches and flowers, Domaine Ferrer Ribière "F" is made from a blend of 80% Muscat à Petits Grains and 20% Grenache Blanc.
It's the perfect weight to serve as an aperitif with hors d'oeuvres. I like it with olives and toasted almonds, grilled vegetables and fish, and seafood soups or stews. No lightweight, it's a terrific wine for the price.
