Fine French wines from Rhone Valley

From now until end of May, Enoteca are doing a Rhone food and wine matching experience.
I was really lucky to be invited to go because I am not an expert on wines so it was the perfect opportunity to find out more.

The wine selection was quite impressive with prices starting at $1xx.

At the tasting session, the wines available for tasting were:
Domaine Durieu 2010, Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Domaine des Bosquets 2010, Gigondas
Domaine des Escaravailles La Ponce Rasteau 2009, Cote du Rhone
Charles Hours Happy Hours Cool Sec 2007, Jurancon
Gerard Bertrand Aigle Noir Brut 2004, Cremant de Limoux

They varied from different levels of pepperiness and wine tannins.

To go with the wines, there was:
Pate en croute - Richelieu, Porcini saucisson, Walnuts Saucisson, Duck cured sausage, Mini balls of saucissons.

My favourite was the pate en croute which went well with all the wines. The waxier saucissons went well with the strong peppery wines.
