Vintages Wine Picks July 24, 2010

White Wine

Domaine Figeat Pouilly-Fumé 2008, A.C., Loire, France: Vintages Wine Panel: The Loire Valley’s famed Pouilly-Fumés offer some of the most exciting and distinctive interpretations of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Domaine Figeat’s Savvy does not disappoint. Aromas of floral, citrus, fresh-cut grass, and hints of those trademark smoky and minerally characters engage the senses. Lip-smacking right through the dry finish. Terrific on its own. My note: Extremely zesty and herbal with wake-up-now notes of grass, chives, green apple and lime. Mouth-watering. Lovely! Pair with: poached trout in tarragon cream sauce, pasta aioli with grilled vegetables. 171470 12.50% XD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 90/100. July 24, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Domaine La Casenove La Colomina Carignan Grenache Mourvèdre Syrah 2006, Vin De Pays Des Côtes Catalanes, Midi, France: A full-bodied, ultra-delicious red with black liqueur running through the heart of this. It also offers racy notes of pepper, spices and black raspberry. Perfect for barbecues. Terrific price! Drink: 2010-2015. 74542 14.50% XD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 90/100.
