Panzerwagen of the Day: Der Panzerwagen

If you want to be dumb enough to bet against the certain winner then go ahead.
As for the final podium, Nibali, Peraud, Valverde is the likely outcome, right? Pinot talks a good game but reality is likely to set in. He gave it a good try but he likely needs a bigger buffer to hold off the two chasers?

Amy's Wine of the day: Chateau les farcies Pecharmant

The regional wine organizaiton tells me that: Pécharmant AOC wines are made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Côt or Malbec and Merlot Noir. The incomparable taste of Pécharmant is, to a great extent, due to its soil; the sand and gravel of the Périgord which hides deep down a layer of iron clay known as the Tran.

Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Lots of black pepper. But also, to use that dreaded word: smooth.
