680 NEWS wine reviews – April 29–May 1, 2016 

Domaine Le Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2013
Some of the best value French red wines come from the Côtes du Rhône. Currently at Vintages is Domaine Le Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2013. For $14.95 you get a dense purple wine with a smoky, herbal, plum nose backed by oak. It's medium-bodied, dry and savoury with black cherry and plum flavours. Ideal for hamburgers and barbecued meats. That's Domaine Le Grand Retour Plan de Dieu Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2013 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, Vintages #224592)

San Pio Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2013
Valpolicella Ripasso is the baby brother of Amarone at less than half the price. A great example currently at Vintages is San Pio Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2013. Dense purple in colour, this wine has a smoky, spicy, tarry nose with tobacco and vanilla oak notes. It's medium, dry with medium-to-full-bodied with plum and sandalwood flavours enhanced by a floral note. It costs $17.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it with ravioli or mushroom risotto. That's San Pio Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2013. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, Vintages #181446)
