680News wine reviews – September 5–7, 2014 

Calmel & Joseph Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2012
The Pays d'Oc region of southern France names their wines by the grape variety rather the village name as they do in the northern and central regions. An example is Calmel & Joseph Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2012, currently at LCBO outlets. Golden straw colour, a nose of apples with a nutty note, the wine has well extracted apple and pear flavours with good texture; medium to full-bodied with nicely balanced lemony acidity. Good value at $13.80. Try it with roast chicken. That's Calmel & Joseph Villa Blanche Chardonnay 2012 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.80, LCBO #375071)

Château de Treviac 2011
The Corbières region of southern France has some nifty red wines that mimic Chateauneuf-du-Pape but are less costly. Château de Treviac 2011 is a blend of Syrah and Grenache. Dense ruby-purple in colour, it offers a bouquet of tobacco, cocoa and spicy cedar; it's full-bodied with beautifully balanced sweet fruit, a velvety mouth feel and flavours of dark chocolate and black fruits. It costs $17.95 at the LCBO. Serve it with barbecued meats. That's Château de Treviac 2011 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, LCBO #670505)
