We've written on Eric Texier before, one of the rare individuals who has succeeded at standing out in a sea of great French winemakers. A Bordeaux native who has lived in or around Lyon since 1979, Eric is a jovial, energetic and fun-loving person who wants his wines to make their drinkers happy. He is a trailblazer, almost solely responsible for putting the almost extinct region of Brézème back on the radar of Syrah enthusiasts. He makes a variety of wines in the Rhone, everything from Cote Rotie to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but today we have something especially unusual for you: a bagged wine. Now, before you shut your computer in disgust, I must admit that I was skeptical myself. I mean, what self respecting wine geek wants to drink wine out of a bag?! But let me tell you: this is actually one worth drinking. And, given his history and love of pushing the boundaries and doing things others do not expect, it makes perfect sense that Texier would choose to put this delicious, chuggable red wine into a bag. Even better… it’s in magnum form. Chat Fou is a perfect red for warm weather: it is 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, with the final 20% being a blend of white grapes. It is red fruited, a little floral, a little earthy, and just an easy drinker. So pretty much everything you want for a summery red. The grapes are sourced from Saint Joseph and the name Chat Fou means “Crazy Cat”.... Because Texier did, indeed, have a crazy cat. Also… what other Magnum of wine can you get for $39? So join me in being a rebel! Push your own boundaries, and grab a couple Mags in a Bag. They're just freaking delicious, and if someone can pull off putting quality wine into a bag, it's got to be Eric Texier. - MVT
