Vintages Wine Picks May 2, 2009

White Wine

Domaine Latour-Giraud Les Narvaux Meursault Chardonnay 2006, A.C., Burgundy, France: Beautifully and exotically perfumed with aromas of smoky hazelnuts, ripe Asian pear and green apple. A buttery, rich and round Chardonnay. Highly recommended for hedonists. Pair with: butternut squash risotto, pesto and alfredo sauces, stewed chicken. Drink: 2009-2016. 12369 13% D 750 mL  $54.95 Score: 92/100. May 2, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Southbrook Vineyards Triomphe Cabernet Merlot 2006, V.Q.A., Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Medium ruby in color, this wine is filled with aromas of black cherry, raspberry and a hint of cinnamon. Dry, textured and quite elegant, it is impressively ripe and round with just enough acid and tannin to bring structure to the pretty wine. Medium to full-bodied with a fairly lengthy finish. Will drink well for up to three years. My note: Enticing mocha-infused nose with notes of ripe, fleshy blackberries and black raspberries. Round, robust and velvet-smooth. Lovely! Pair with: coq au vin, grilled game meats, lamb ragout, leg of lamb. 117580 12.50% D 750 mL  $26.95 Score: 90/100. May 2, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
