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

Tawse Winery Inc. Growers Blend Pinot Noir 2008, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Drop-down gorgeous: this wine has it all. Classic notes of black cherries, fresh-turned earth, violets, baking spices and raspberries. I absolutely love it! Buy a case or two. 130989 13% D 750 mL  $31.95 Score: 92/100.
