Chat eu Oeuf wine (Rosé, Blanc et Rouge) | Wine Review

Playful puns, lovely sketchy label art and whimsical copy, is more than enough to get me grunting (in a good way) on a Friday night, but there’s more to it than that. 

This naughty little wine is a beau. 

Any beverage that uses a cheeky pun for its name is bound to get the Champagne Piggy’s attention.   

For those who parlez francais un petit peu, you might have deciphered that ‘chat en oeuf’ translates to Cat in Egg (not on the egg, as the label would suggest).  

The name is a play on ‘Châteauneuf’, as in Châteauneuf-du-Pape  – the famous wine region close-by to Côtes du Ventoux, from whence Chat eu Oeuf hails. 

Oh, I do like a good pun. 

Chat eu Oeuf Wine
Morrisons – All around the £5 mark
Chat-eu-Oeuf Rosé 2010 
Vin de Pays d’Oc, South of France:
Grenache and Syrah grapes

The rosé is a drinkable punnet of alcoholic raspberries, soft and nipply, as well as sharp and fruity.  Delicious with dessert.

Chat-eu-Oeuf Blanc 2010
Vin de Pays d’Oc, South of France:
Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne grapes

The white is dry, like a hot hazy summer’s day, and tastes like a honey bee’s legs, a honey bee who’s been dabbling among nectarine flowers. 

Chat-eu-Oeuf Rouge 2010
Côtes du Ventoux, Rhône, France:
Grenache and Syrah grapes

The red (crackly fire required) is all juicy berries and spices and induces one’s insides to go all tingly. Squeal, for it’s nearly Christmas.   

Ah, Chat eu Ouef, I love thee.  When the pennies won’t buy Champagne, they’ll buy you my little love.

A resounding: 5/5
