Chateau de Pourcieux Cotes de Provence ($14.99): This wine has a gleaming and luminous pale pink colour. Expressing notes of pink grapefruit, the nose is delicate and delicious. On the palate, a sense of freshness prevails. Balance and elegance characterize this wine. Aromas of white fruit (peach) are revealed in mid-palate. This rose enjoys a lingering aroma in the finale.
Chateau De Tours Brouilly ($19.99): Ripe and jammy with notable heft for a Gamay, this true charmer of a wine offers fruit and soft roundness with just enough restraint. A rising star of Beaujolais, Chateau des Tours here gives us a stylish, character-driven red for all seasons.
Ferraton Cotes du Rhone Samorens Rouge ($12.99): Garnet in color with glinting ruby highlights. Generous aromas of blackberry, raspberry and blueberry on the nose. Well-balanced with ripe fruit and tantalizing spicy notes, this red offers firm tannins in the lengthy finish.
Chateau La Roche Mezieres ($12.99): With a beautiful deep garnet color, aromas of dry plums, cherries and leather this wine instantly cozies up to you. On the palate, the wine is sturdy but supple, round and well balanced with a long and fruity finish. Almost made for roasted chicken, lamb or a selection of nice mild cheeses.
