 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • William Fèvre Champs Royaux Chablis 2010
  • Hungaria Grande Cuvée Brut
  • Mooiplaas The Bean Coffee Pinotage 2010
 

William Fèvre Champs Royaux Chablis 2010 (Burgundy)
$18.75 until Jan. 1, then $20.75 (LCBO #276436)
A fine Chablis is like biting into a fresh, crisp Granny Smith apple straight out of the fridge. The wine has the minerally, green apple nose and lemony acidity that prolongs the flavour. Good value. ****½ (89)
Food match: oysters; seafood or fish

Hungaria Grande Cuvée Brut (Hungary)
$11.95 (LCBO #217539)
This sparkler is amazing value and the answer to an impoverished holiday celebration. Produced by the champagne method – that is, a secondary fermentation in the bottle – Hungaria Grande Cuvée Brut has lots of bubbles and crisply dry flavours of redcurrants and gooseberries. **** (87)
Food match: aperitif; grilled salmon

Mooiplaas The Bean Coffee Pinotage 2010 (Stellenbosch, South Africa)
$13.95 (Vintages #251165)
This wine actually smells and tastes like coffee beans – and also chocolate, smoky, tarry oak and plums. Full on the palate. Almost a meal in itself. **** (87)
Food match: BBQ meats; blue cheese
