Remy Pannier Blanc de France (Loire)
$13.95 for 1.5 L ($14.95 after Nov. 8) (LCBO #123471)
A bargain white blend in a magnum from the Loire. Light straw colour with a nose of citrus and pear; medium-bodied, dry, nicely balanced citrus and pear flavours. Easy drink. ***½ (86)
Food match: grilled white fish; runny cheeses.

Fita Preta Vinhos Sexy Red Alentejano 2007 (Portugal)
$19.95 (Vintages #144485)
A screaming pink-fuchsia label and capsule belies the power and concentration of this blend of Touriga Nacional, Aragones, Cabernet and Syrah. Dense purple colour with an earthy, smoky, blackberry nose; full-bodied with sweet blackberry and dark chocolate flavours and lively acidity. Rustic but raunchy. ****½ (89)
Food match: osso buco; fresh parmesan

Segura Viudas Brut Reserva (Penedes, Spain)
$14.65 (LCBO #158493)
This reliable cava (made by the champagne method) is always great value. Medium straw coloured with a yeasty nose; light to medium-bodied, crisply dry with citrus and green apple flavours. Clean and lingering on the palate. **** (88)
Food match: aperitif wine; mushroom risotto
