Paul Mas Coteaux du Languedoc Belleguette Blanc ($19.99): The creamy palate reveals complex flavours of ripe mango, pineapple and vanilla with notes of brioche and toast lingering on the finish. Great as apéritif, this wine can also be enjoyed with white meats, fish and salads.
Chateau Greysac Medoc ($20.99): A blend of five vineyards, some of which go into single-vineyard designates, this is a well made, structured wine, offering layers of black cherry and subtle earth around soft, velvety tannins. The finish highlights black pepper spice with dark chocolate chaser.
Il Fauno di Arcanum Toscana Rosso ($32.99): A blend of primarily Cabernet Franc and Merlot from Chianti Classico, this well-aged beauty is drinking beautifully with classic Bordeaux aromas of plums, cassis, and emerging graphite and cedar notes. A bargain for an 12 year-old wine from a great wine-growing region.
