Vintages Wine Picks February 6, 2010


White Wine

Jean-Marc Brocard Vau De Vay 1Er Cru Chablis 2007, A.C., Burgundy, France: Love it! Vibrant, almost quivering in its energy. Lovely aromas of lime, lemon zest, and white peach. Clean and fresh without oak. 159012 12.50% XD 750 mL  $29.95 Score: 92/100. February 6, 2010 Favourite White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  


Red Wine

Flat Rock Cellars Twisted 2008, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Flat Rock Cellars does not voluntarily divulge which varieties make up their Twisted blends. But if you visit their website (www.flatrockcellars.com) and hazard a guess by clicking on the “Get Twisted” link, you will find out if your suspicions were correct. Here’s a hint: they’re not all red grapes. The latest incarnation of Red Twisted is medium ruby in colour with aromas of cedar, strawberry, black cherry, earth and pepper. It’s dry, medium-bodied with fresh red fruit flavours balanced by bracing acidity and culminating in a medium-length, spicy finish. A lively, crowd-pleasing red to enjoy. My note: This is such an exciting winery! Every year their wines get even better, and they started off strong. I adore this red with dark red berries and fruit wrapped in a smoky oak blanket. Comforting notes of espresso and dark spices. A terrific finish. I can’t wait to see what they do next! Pair with: grilled salmon, baked herbed chicken, thick-cut pork chops. 86918 12.30% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 91/100. February 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
