Vintages Wine Picks January 17, 2009

White Wine

Vign. Belloc, Prop. Château Brondelle Blanc Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007, AC Graves, Sauvignon Sémillon, Bordeaux, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Pale straw with bold and pure notes of pink grapefruit, freshly cut grass, white flowers, Granny Smith apples and clementines. Dry with very focused and refreshing aroma replays, especially the grapefruit. Medium body, great length and a palate-cleansing finish. My note: Lovely herbal and lime notes blended seamlessly with lanolin and lemongrass. Refreshing aperitif or an accompaniment to a wide range of dishes. Pair with: steamed mussels, oysters in a saffron broth, chicken with cream sauces, asparagus quiche, sushi. 626507 12.50% XD 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 88/100.

Red Wine

Western Range Julimar Shiraz Viognier 2006, Perth Hills, Western Australia, Australia: A vibrant and mouth-watering attack with aromas of black raspberry, chewy blackberry, dark spices and pepper. I love the lift and brightness that Viognier brings to Shiraz. Pair with: peppercorn steak, beef stew, fajitas, lamb vindaloo, parmesan cheese. Drink: 2008-2014. 20180 13% XD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 91/100. January 17, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
