Red Wine

Château La Dauphine Merlot Cabernet Franc 2005, A.C., Fronsac, Bordeaux, France: Juicy and generous, more New World style than Old World. Lovely blackberry and cassis richness with well-applied toasty oak. Only 5,000 cases were produced of this full-bodied wine which is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. 121517 14.50% XD 750 mL  $34.95 Score: 91/100. June 6, 2009 Full Review

White Wine

Domaine Du Château De Melin La Corvée Des Vignes, Paul Dumay Chardonnay 2007, A.C., Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet, France: Vintages Wine Panel: An exciting Chardonnay featuring aromas of custard tart, tangy apple, flint and citrus. Dry and ripe with a nice citrus undertone for balance. Medium full-bodied with a very long, very elegant, very enticing finish. Cellar it 2-4 years. My note: A mouth-watering Chardonnay with hauntingly deep aromas of ripe pear, hazelnut and light spices. Creamy and voluptuous without being heavy. Layers of flavor. 42093 13% XD 750 mL  $59.95 Score: 90/100. June 6, 2009 Full Review
