 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Masi Campofiorin 2008
  • Yellow Tail Bubbles
  • Domaine Boyar Blueridge XR Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2009
 

Masi Campofiorin 2008 (Veneto)
$17.95 (LCBO #155051)
Not as rich and complex as the 2007 but more approachable. Deep ruby colour with a minerally, pencil lead, plum and cherry nose; medium-bodied, spicy, raisin and plum flavours finishing satisfyingly dry. **** (88)
Food match: pasta with meat sauce; veal parmigiana

Yellow Tail Bubbles (Australia)
$13.95 (LCBO #229039)
I was surprised by how drinkable this sparkling wine was. It hits the palate with a soft, creamy, sweetish pear flavour and goes down easily. Ingenious re-sealable plastic stopper. ***½ (86)

Domaine Boyar Blueridge XR Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2009 (Bulgaria)
$11.95 (To be released on Saturday, October 29 in Vintages, #73197)
A very flavourful Chardonnay at a bargain price. Medium straw colour; earthy apple nose; medium-bodied with a touch of sweetness in mid-palate and well integrated oak. **** (87)
Food match: roast chicken; tuna
