We have $5 treats for all. Wonderful red and white wine features for tonight:

Les Trois Versants Vieilles Vignes Sur Lie Muscadet Sèvre & Maine 2014
The wine is rich and concentrated for a Muscadet. With intense fruits and acidity, it is deliciously fruity and crisp. There is a tangy texture that gives the wine zest and minerality. The aftertaste is so fresh and zingy. Best Buy. Score – 90. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, April 2016)

Château Fontaine de Genin,Bordeaux 2014
Bordeaux, more than any other region in the world, can offer tremendous value at all price points. The 2014 Château Fontaine de Genin does just that. Smooth, but with some grip, this has a nice leather tone to it with crushed berry, cassis, wood and campfire notes. Concentrated and long. (VINTAGES panel, March 2016)
