680 NEWS wine reviews – November 11–13, 2016 

Bailly Lapierre Réserve Brut Crémant de Bourgogne
Whether you want to celebrate or commiserate over the results of the American election – or just put the whole spectacle out of your mind – try a bottle of Bailly Lapierre Réserve Brut Crémant de Bourgogne from Burgundy. This sparkling wine, currently at Vintages and selling for $19.95, is pale straw in colour with a minerally nose of apples and hints of the forest floor. It's medium dry with grapefruit and green apple flavours that linger long on the palate. It's a great aperitif before dinner or you can serve it with fish or seafood dishes. That's Bailly Lapierre Réserve Brut Crémant de Bourgogne from France at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #991562) (89)

Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2014 (Argentina)
Aurelio Montes produces terrific wines in Chile under the Montes. He also own a winery in Argentina's Mendoza Valley called Kaiken. Recently released at Vintages is Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2014. The wine is dense purple-black in colour with a cedary, blackberry, vanilla oak nose with a note of tar. Full-bodied and richly extracted, it offers flavours of sweet black fruits with a firm structure. It costs $19.95 a bottle and works well with rich red meat dishes. That's Kaiken Ultra Malbec 2014 from Argentina at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #50849) (90)
