680News wine reviews – November 20–22, 2009 

Rémy Pannier Blanc de France
As we're coming into the party season consider buying your wine in magnums. A good wine for those stand-up cocktail parties is Rémy Pannier Blanc de France from the Loire Valley. This blended white is bargain-priced at $14.95 for 1.5 litres. It's light straw in colour with a nose of citrus and pear; medium-bodied, on the palate, it's dry and nicely balanced and easy drinking. That's Rémy Pannier Blanc de France from the Loire Valley. If you miss any of these wine reviews you can read them by going to 680News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.95 for 1.5 L; LCBO #123471)

Charamba Doura 2007
In the Douro Valley, famous for its port, the winemakers are now producing a lot of table wines at bargain prices. Charamba Doura 2007 is a blend of four grapes used for port – Touriga Nacional, Tinta Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca. As a result the wine is deep ruby in colour with a spicy blackberry and cinnamon nose. It's fruity, dry and fresh on the palate with supple tannins. And it's great value at $9.45 a bottle. Try it with ribs or hamburgers. That's Charamba Doura 2007 from Portugal. Charamba is spelled C.H.A.R.A.M.B.A. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.45, LCBO #78105)
