680News wine reviews – January 4–6, 2013 

Château Maison Neuve 2009
On January 6 Vintages is releasing a red wine from a lesser-known region of Bordeaux called the Côte de Blaye. Château Maison Neuve 2009 is deep ruby in colour with a bouquet of cedar and blackcurrants. It's medium-bodied with a soft mouth feel but is firmly structured with good intensity of flavour, and surprisingly elegant for the price – which is $15.95. The kind of wine that goes well with lamb. Because on the day God created sheep he also created Cabernet Sauvignon. That's Château Maison Neuve 2009 from France at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95, Vintages #307298)

Boutari Naoussa 2008
I was very impressed by a Greek wine in this Saturday's Vintages release. Boutari Naoussa 2008 is made from the native Xynomavro grape in the Naoussa region. Its tawny ruby colour speaks to its maturity offering a dry, sour cherry flavour that is restrained but elegant – a wine that blossoms in the glass and on the palate. And it's only $12.95 a bottle. Match it with a veal chop or moussaka. That's Boutari Naoussa 2008 from Greece. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95, Vintages #23218)
