Red Wine

Fattoria Di Basciano Vigna Il Corto 2006, I.G.T., Colli della Toscana Centrale, Tuscany, Italy: Black plums, espresso, violets, and blackcurrants flow through the core of this wine with a lovely finish bursting with dried herbs and smoke. Full-bodied and supple. 134775 14% XD 750 mL  $29.95 Score: 90/100. December 5, 2009 Full Review

Sparkling Wine

J. Lassalle Préférence Brut, Premier Cru Champagne, A.C., Champagne, France: Vintages Wine Panel: The lot number and disgorgement date may differ from the review below but non-vintage Champagnes are designed in a consistent house style. The NV Brut Premier Cru Preference is a brighter more focused wine than the Cachet d’Or. The wine exhibits notable purity and focus in a medium-bodied style, as attractive suggestions of pears, flowers, mint, spices and minerals emerge. The lot # 4271 is identified on the cork, and this bottle was disgorged on January 14, 2008. AG. My note: A toasty, tasty bubble with pleasant approachability. 27615 12% XD 750 mL  $48.95 Score: 88/100. December 5, 2009 Full Review
