Vintages Wine Picks August 7, 2010

White Wine

Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay 2008, Sonoma County, California, United States: Rich, buttery and full-bodied with delightful aromas of toasted almond, green apples and a lime-infused finish. Terrific value at this price. Yum! Pair with: chicken, lobster. 421644 13.40% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100. August 7, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Château Du Barry Château Roc De Bacudun Cabernet Blend 2006, A.C., Bordeaux, France: Vintages Wine Panel: The 2006 Bordeaux are proving to be lovely early-enjoyment wines. Largely over-shadowed by the 2005 vintage, many of the class of 2006, like this Gold Medal winner (2007 Concours Général Agricole Paris), are nonetheless stellar wines that offer tremendous value. Filled with black cherry, spice and cranberry aromas and flavours, this dry, balanced wine is an attention-grabber. Enjoy it around the barbecue. My note: Staggeringly great price for Bordeaux. This one is straight-forward but does have those leanings toward Bordeaux with blackcurrant and cassis wrapped in cigar box. Full-bodied and balanced Pair with: grilled meats. Drink: 2010-2014. 171165 13% XD 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 87/100. August 7, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
