680 NEWS wine reviews – January 26–28, 2007 

Chateau De Gourgazaud 2004
The Languedoc region of France offers some really good value red wines. From the Minervois you can pick up a bottle of Chateau De Gourgazaud 2004 that will make a very tasty addition to red meat dishes. The wine is deep purple in colour with a nose of blackberries and spices along with a peppery, smoky note. It's medium-bodied and dry with good acidity. It costs $12.05. Let it stand for an hour or so in a decanter or jug before serving. That's Chateau de Gourgazaud 2004 at the LCBO. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.05, LCBO 22384)

Black Opal Chardonnay 2005
Australian Chardonnay is one of those "hail fellow well met" wines, very much like the Aussie personality. What you see is what you get. If you're looking for a down-under Chardonnay that's lively and, full-flavoured at a very sensible price, try Black Opal Chardonnay 2005. The colour is medium straw. The bouquet is rich in buttery, pineapple aromas; it's medium-bodied with spicy, pineapple and lemon flavours. It costs $13.95 a bottle. Try it with roast chicken or a slice of Port Salut cheese. That's Black Opal Chardonnay 2005 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.95, LCBO #309450)
