Ducourt Blanc Lime ($15.99): As quintessentially French as spending a morning people-watching at an outdoor cafe table in Paris, this revived mid-century classic features quality wine (Sauvignon Blanc) infused with lime and lightly carbonated for a fantastic aperitif, or even as a whimsical accompaniment to lighter fare. Crisp and refreshing and very suited to warm weather.
C’Est La Vie Pinot Noir/Syrah ($12.99): A convivial wine with a ruby-red color tinged with purple hue by youth and good intensity. Powerful nose which opens on steams of strawberry and raspberry. This wine is marked by floral notes and smells of ripe red berries. Easy drinking and excellent with or without a meal.
Chateau La Tour de Mons 2010 ($38.99): Château La Tour de Mons is a classic wine, elegant and pure and fully respectful of this great terroir of Margaux. With a vineyard planted of 56% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot, Château La Tour de Mons matures for 12 months in French oak barrels. With an intense colour, the wine displays a very broad aromatic range. Elegant and distinguished, this enticing wine has a fantastic potential for ageing.
Chateau Siaurac Lalande de Pomerol 2010 ($27.99): A ripe, soft, generous wine, laden with blackberry fruits as well as spice from wood aging. Rich and full-bodied, it has power and concentration from dark tannins as well as the ripe, opulent black fruits of the vintage. Drink from 2014. -(WE)
