Be Our Guest Private Label Wine

I recently had the opportunity to have dinner at “Be Our Guest” restaurant in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and more specifically, in the Beast’s castle.

The experience was unforgettable and one that I will tell you about in full detail, stay tuned! But today I want to share my wine experience with you.
Be Our Guest Restaurant
Did you know that the “Be Our Guest” restaurant has their very own private label wine from France?! I had no idea that my dining experience was going to include an exclusive wine tasting opportunity. Of course, I took advantage and ordered the wine sampler ($21 USD) so that I could try three of the wines.
Be Our Guest Wine

Here is what I thought:
Enchanted Rosé
Smell: vodka watermelon, I know it sounds weird but that’s what my sister-in-law said it smelled like as well!
Taste: dry with a hint of strawberry. Reminded me of ice-wine from Niagara however it was not sweet at all. Rivals Mission Hill for my favorite rose but I might be biased because of where I sat tasting this wine (in the Beast’s castle!). My point is really that for someone who doesn’t typically like Rose I liked this one just as much as I enjoyed the one from Mission Hill and would have happily ordered it again.
The Menu Card Description: “This Enchanted Rosé from the Languedoc region in the South of France is a blend of Syrah and Grenache. This wine is succulently fruity on the palate with rich notes of ripe cherry, muddled strawberry, and a crisp finish.”

Shadow of the Beast Chardonnay
First of all I should say that I don’t drink Chardonnay. 
Smell: light and citrus and sweet, like candy
Taste: smooth with undertones of Chardonnay but not the normal strong after taste. Hands down the best Chardonnay I have ever tried without question.
The Menu Card Description: “Pouilly-Fuissé is one of the most prestigious wines from the Maconnais region of Burgundy. This wine is 100% Chardonnay and has been partially aged in French Oak which gives the wine a slight hint of almonds and cinnamon on the nose. Delicate line and green apple flavours linger on the palate.

Shadow of the Beast Red
Smell: smoky
Taste: incredibly light and smooth. Maybe even a little too light for me. Might be the only red I have ever tried that truly has a taste the embodies the name of the wine.
The Menu Card Description: “Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of the most renowned appellations of the southern part of the Rhone Valley. This wine is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre. A powerful and full-bodied wine with rich notes of blueberry, wild herbs, and lots of spice. the palate i mature and rich with velvety tannins, ending with a long finish.”

If you go the the Be Our Guest restaurant be sure to try the wines – you won’t be disappointed!

My shoes for that: Gold Tory Burch Miller Sandals (my most “Belle” like shoes that I had with me on the trip to wear into the castle)
