Vintages Wine Picks November 7, 2009

White Wine

Schloss Reinhartshausen Erbacher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese 2003, Q.M.P., Rheingau, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: This single-vineyard late-harvest Riesling is hitting its prime. Juicy, with tropical fruit and a stony finish, it’s an inspired choice alongside charcouterie. My note: Apricot-delight! Gorgeous aromas of ripe peach and pear. Mouth-watering. What a revelation. 129858 11% M 750 mL  $28.95 Score: 93/100. November 7, 2009 Favourite White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Chateau de Fontenelles Cuvée Notre Dame 2007, A.C., Corbières, Midi, France: This wine won a Gold Medal at the Concours des Grands Vins de France 2008. Packed with flavour! Raspberry-blackberry jam cradled in a cedar forest. Drink it in, close your eyes and let your mind drift. Full-bodied and stunningly tasty. Great party wine. Fancy label makes it a deceptively expensive-looking gift (!) Decant for 1-2 hours. Drink: 2009-2012. 106518 13% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 90/100.
