Vintages Wine Picks July 7, 2007

White Wine

Santa Carolina Barrica Selection Chardonnay 2005, D.O. Casablanca Valley, Chile: This popular Chardonnay features a bright yellow color and tropical fruit on the nose and the palate. A fresh, crisp, and very well-balanced summer white. My note: A round- textured, buttery and full-bodied chardonnay. Simple but delicious. Pair with: barbecued fish, chicken, corn. 928580 14% D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 87/100. July 7, 2007 Best Value White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Mas Des Bressades Cabernet/Syrah 2005, Vin de Pays du Gard, France: The 2005 vintage was a classic for the Rhône; this wine is destined to be another classic from this well-regarded producer. My note: A delicious and full-bodied wine for the money. Aromas of dark red fruit. Pair with: game birds, bison steaks. Drink: 2009-2012. 712174 14% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 89/100.
