680 NEWS wine reviews – October 7–9, 2016 

La Chablisienne Saint Bris 2015
Saint Bris is located within Burgundy's appellation but it doesn't grow Chardonnay. It produces Sauvignon Blanc. Just released at Vintages is La Chablisienne Saint Bris 2015. The wine is very pale in colour with green apple, lemon and cut grass notes on the nose. Light on the palate, this Sauvignon has grapefruit and gooseberry flavours with tangy acidity. It costs $16.95 at Vintages outlets and is perfect for seafood or light fish dishes. That's La Chablisienne Saint Bris 2015 from Burgundy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS.($16.95, Vintages #641753) (88)

Concha y Toro Serie Riberas Reserva Carmenère 2014
Bordeaux has virtually abandoned the Carmenère grape but it flourishes in Chile, where they produce it as a single variety or blend it with Cabernet Sauvignon. Concha y Toro Serie Riberas Reserva Carmenère 2014 has about 10% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The wine is dense purple in colour with a cedary, blackcurrant nose. It's full-bodied, dry with a fruity blackcurrant flavour, good length with a note of cinnamon on the finish. It costs $17.95 at Vintages outlets. Match it with steak or roast beef. That's Concha y Toro Serie Riberas Reserva Carmenère 2014 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, Vintages #274043) (89)
