680 NEWS wine reviews – July 21–23, 2006 

La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux Rosé
For my palate the tastiest rosés come from the southern Rhône Valley, where the warm growing season extracts lots of flavour from the the Grenache grape. A good example is La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux Rosé 2005. Deep pink in colour, it has a nose of fresh wild strawberries; it's medium-full-bodied with a lively strawberry flavour, quite dry with a firm finish. It costs $10.90 a bottle. It goes well with cold salmon or cold cuts. That's La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux Rosé 2005 from the Southern Rhône. For post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($10.95, LCBO #622134)

Rothschild Viognier 2004
Viognier is a white grape we're going to hear a lot more about. When it's grown in the right soil and climate it has a nose of honseysuckle and ripe peach, quite exotic and spicy, yet dry. Usually it's a costly wine, but in the Languedoc region of France they've managed to make it something of a bargain-priced wine. Rothschild Viognier 2004 may not have the intense varietal character for a Viognier, but it's cleanly made with light fruit character, and the price is right: $10.90 a bottle. Try it with devilled eggs or Caesar salad. That's Rothschild Viognier 2004 from the Pays d'Oc. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($10.95, LCBO #619221)
