One of my favorite places in the world to travel is Paris. I could walk around all day popping into the different cafes for a glass of wine and small bite to eat. Since I am not able to get to Paris often, I love to go to Buvette in the West Village of NYC to get my fix. This small neighborhood spot instantly transports me back to those small spots in Paris that you just happen to stumble upon. I love everything about Buvette. Not only does it have a rustic European vibe, but the wine and food selection is amazing. Today I stopped by for a glass of Domaine la Remejeanne from the Cotes-du-Rhone region of France and a slice of Noble Road cheese. Noble Road is a young cows' milk cheese that is the epitome of buttery, earthy, mushroomy, brie-like goodness. It paired perfectly with my wine that I sipped while people watching in the window. The perfect afternoon!

What The Experts Say:
A red wine with a dark ruby color. Deep spicy nose with hints of tobacco leaves and red berries. A pleasant structure, a freshness with hints of mint, velvety tannins and aromas of Morello cherries with a hint of caramel and liquorice. It offers harmony and length in the mouth. It can be kept 5 to 8 years.
What I Say:
This wine was amazing! It was super rich and smooth with a hint of spice. I would come back here just for this glass of red. The perfect pairing with this Noble Road cheese. A must try if you visit NYC!
