680News wine reviews – May 1–3, 2009 

Canei Vino Frizzante
With arrival of May it's time to consider wines to drink on the patio or the deck. In sunshine you want low-alcohol beverages and something seductive like Canei Vino Frizzante, a lightly sparkling wine from Piedmont made from Muscat grapes. Imagine smelling a carnation and biting into a sweet orange at the same time. That's the flavour sensation you get from this wine. It's light, semi-sweet and spicy. It costs $9.40 a bottle. It makes a good aperitif wine or you can drink it with fruit or light cakes. That's Canei – spelt C.A.N.E.I – Vino Frizzante from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.40, LCBO #107581).

Chateau de Gourgazaud 2007
In the French region of Minervois, facing the Pyrenees, is a wine called Chateau de Gourgazaud that makes very appealing red wines from a blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Carignan. Equally appealing is the price in our market: $12.30. The 2007 vintage of this wine is deeply coloured with a nose of blackberries and wild herbs. Its initial sweetness on the palate give way to a savoury note with good acidity. But make sure you choose the 2007 vintage, much more concentrated than the 2006. Try it with lamb chops or blue cheese. That's Chateau de Gourgazaud 2007 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.30, LCBO  #22384).
