680News wine reviews – April 25–27, 2014 

Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre 2011
When it comes to Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand has stolen the limelight from the Loire Valley; but the French still make a more refined version. Take, for instance, Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre 2011, newly listed at the LCBO. It's light straw in colour with a nose of gooseberries and cut grass; medium-bodied and elegant on the palate, expect crisply dry flavours of grapefruit and gooseberry. It costs $24.95. An ideal wine for seafood or goat's cheese. That's Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre 2011 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($24.95, LCBO #542548)

Beblenheim Alsace Gewurztraminer Réserve 2012
If Gewurztraminer is your grape of choice the Beblenheim co-operative in Alsace produces a very tasty example. Currently listed at the LCBO is their 2012 vintage – a highly aromatic wine that smells like rosewater and lychees and tastes like that too; soft and flattering to the palate, you don't know whether to drink it or dab it behind your ears. But I'd advise drinking it. It costs $16.90 a bottle. Serve it with light curried dishes or smoked cheeses. That's Beblenheim Alsace Gewurztraminer Réserve 2012 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.90, LCBO #361568)
