FRENCH GEMS

Thu 1/17
Pierre Andre Bourgogne Blanc Reserve ($19.99):  Light gold in colour. The flavors are fresh and elegant: white flowers, lime, hazelnut. The palate is accurate with a good acidity that blends nicely with fine woody notes of toast and dried fruit.

Bachey Legros Saint Aubin 1er Cru Les Champlots ($45.99): Domaine Champeau Pouilly-Fume shows pale yellow with a pronounced bouquet of white currants and grapefruit zest. Pure, focused fruity nose with subtle mineral notes. It is dry, lively and fresh with well-defined fruit. Grown on the opposite bank from Sancerre, this wine is a little more complex and floral.

Lavau Rasteau ($18.99):  Crisp blackberry and cherry flavors are bright, but this complex wine is more about their interplay with earthier tones of smoke, game and mushroom. Rich and full on the palate yet balanced firmly with tannins and acidity, it’s a stately wine with a lingering, slightly astringent chestnut finish.

Chateau Bernadotte Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois ($24.99): The great dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend has given this wine both a fine structure and crisp swathes of black-currant fruit. It is a firm wine at this stage, although the fine fruitiness will become an important part of the taste. The estate is named after one of Napoleon’s generals who became King of Sweden.
