Vintages Wine Picks May 10, 2008

White Wine

Goldwater Estate Goldwater Chardonnay 2006, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Lovely, layered chardonnay, buttery with a backbone of ripe pear. 991463 14% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100. May 10, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Chateau Les Jonqueyres Ch√Ęteau Les Jonqueyres 2004, A.C. Bordeaux Superieur, France: A blend of 80% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc, this wine's grapes are hand-harvested and the juice is carefully fermented at low temperatures. Only 20% is given oak contact, while the remainder is aged in stainless steel. This process helps retain the desired bright fruitiness, with the small amount in oak giving the wine some lovely back-end structure. My note: A balanced medium-bodied red with classic Bordeaux structure and aroma. Pair with: prime rib. 65094 13% XD 750 mL  $26.95 Score: 89/100.
