Vintages Wine Picks September 29, 2007

White Wine

Domaine Dereskos Chardonnay 2006, Regional Wine of Messinia, Greece: Vintages Wine Panel: The fruit for this Chardonnay is sourced from Dereskos’s own vineyards. The juice is fermented and matured in new French barriques. The resulting wine is fruity/smoky/oaky with a good crisp acidity for balance. My note: A strange but enjoyable take on chardonnay - sort of like when opera diva Sarah Brightman sings pop tunes. Pair with: chicken gyros, marinated octopus, shrimp stir-fry, lemon/garlic roasted potatoes. 642454 13% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 87/100. September 29, 2007 Best Value White Wine.
