Wine Pick of the Week: 2007 Gérard Bertrand La Forge Corbières

This week's wine is a little 'dark and brooding'

This January, we asked our team of experts — sommeliers, wine writers, and winemakers — to recommend the best wines to be drinking in 2013. Here's what our panelists recommended for the week of Feb. 11 — and it's the perfect way to kick off a week of wine and love. 

2007 Gerard Bertrand La Forge; Corbières Boutenac, France; $70
"A delicious single-vineyard wine from the best region of Corbières, it is dark and brooding, rich, and dense with almost raisin-y flavors and a finish of nuts and savory spices. This would go well with wild boar, but, if you don’t have one available, a fall-off-the-bone veal shank would do." 

— Roger Morris, wine and food writer for The Daily Meal, Wine Enthusiast, and Town & Country and Sommelier Journal; co-author of The Brandywine Book of the Seasons

You can check out the full list for the year, and start planning your wine list ahead of time. Up next week: an alvarinho wine to warm you up.
