680News wine reviews – November 27–29, 2009 

Segura Viudas Brut Reserva
Spanish sparkling wine made by the champagne method is called cava, and in these tough economic times it's something to fall back on when you can't justify the price of a bottle of champagne. Segura Viudas Brut Reserva is a reliable sparkler at $14.65 a bottle. It's straw coloured with a yeasty nose; medium-bodied, crisply dry with citrus and green apple flavours and a lingering nutty taste on the finish. Serve it before dinner as an aperitif or try it with mushroom risotto. That's Segura Viudas Brut Reserva from Spain.

La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux 2007
For those cold winter evenings when you need a full-bodied red wine, try La Vieille Ferme 2007 from the Côtes du Ventoux in the Rhone Valley. It's a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault and at $11.95 a bottle it punches well above its weight. The wine has a bouquet of blackberries, licorice and fresh herbs and enough oak to give it a round mouth-feel. It's a wine for red meat dishes or aged Cheddar. That's La Vieille Ferme 2007 from France. If you miss any of these reviews, just visit 680News.com and click on my link to read them. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
