Vintages Wine Picks March 1, 2008

White Wine

Babich Wines Babich Black Label Sauvignon Blanc 2007, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Vintages Wine Panel: This exuberant Sauvignon Blanc bursts with intense floral and passion fruit aromas that lead to flavors of gooseberry, pear and melon on the refreshing palate. This is prototypical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with loads of personality and the promise of spring in every glass. My note: Grassy goodness. A refreshing and zippy white. Closed with a screwcap. Pair with: lemon chicken, grilled seafood. 9142 13% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100. March 1, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar

Moillard Bourgogne Pinot Noir Tradition 2006, AC, Burgundy, France: Vintages Wine Panel: This Pinot is sourced from vineyards across Burgundy including the Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Hautes Côtes de Nuits and Côte Chalonnaise. This is prototypical Bourgogne Pinot Noir: light, fresh, juicy, and crisp. Best served with simple, non-spicy food. My note: A red wine with ripe cherry and berry flavors. A fantastic value. Pair with: planked salmon. 66399 12.50% XD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 88/100. March 1, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
