For those of you unfamiliar with the national French holiday, we have this from Wikipedia: “The French National Day is the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790.” It’s the equivalent of our Fourth of July.

To celebrate the day, and I do intend to celebrate Bastille Day, we at Top Ten will be featuring some great French wines. Top Ten has partnered with a French import company to bring you some affordable and well-made wines from the prestigious Bordeaux region. You’ll see the Calvet name on the labels. That is the surname of Jean Christophe Calvet whose family has made and sold wines in Burgundy and Bordeaux for over 200 years. We think the wines are stylish and great. We are opening some of them this Saturday for your appraisal. Vive la France!

Cheers!
