Vintages Wine Picks November 26, 2011

White Wine

Domaine Vincent Delaporte Chavignol Sancerre 2010, A.C., Loire, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Delaporte have been producing wines in the village of Chavignol since the 1600s. Their 2010 Sauvignon Blanc has lovely mineral, apple, citrus, toast and gooseberry aromas emerging from the glass. The palate is dry with a crisp and refreshing acidity framing the lemon-lime, apple, toast and distinctive mineral notes. My note: Mouth-wateringly juicy and crisp with lovely, spritely notes of lemongrass and lemon zest. Pure, unfiltered sunshine. Pair with: shellfish, sushi, grilled chicken. Drink: 2011-2015. 251488 12.10% XD 750 mL  $23.95 Score: 89/100. November 26, 2011 Scrumptious Seafood Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar

Benmarco Dominio Del Plata Malbec 2009, Mendoza, Argentina: Savoury and delicious with fleshy black plums and a meaty note through the middle that makes me want to chew on the wine. Full-bodied and ultra-smooth. Drink: 2011-2015. 657601 14% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 92/100. November 26, 2011 Best Value Red Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
