 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Marigny-Neuf Sauvignon Blanc 2002
  • Malesan Bordeaux Blanc 2002
  • Casa Girelli Terriero Primitivo Sangiovese 2002
 

Marigny-Neuf Sauvignon Blanc 2002 (Loire)
$15.95 (available through MCO Marketing & Distribution, 905-562-1392)
Frédéric Brochet is one of the most exciting young winemakers to come out of France in the last ten years. He makes a range of varietal wines under the Ampelidae label (including the best Pinot Noir of the region – and better than a lot of Burgundy!) and a bargain series under the Marigny-Neuf label. This Sauvignon is a steal at the price.
Medium straw colour with a concentrated grassy, smoky, gooseberry and elderberry nose; medium-bodied with a fresh, zingy tart green fruit flavour and great length. Don't miss this one. ****½
Food match: monkfish; fresh goat's cheese

Malesan Bordeaux Blanc 2002 (Bordeaux)
$11.50 (general release)
A blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon with 10% Muscadelle, aged six months in oak. Medium straw colour; smoky, toasty oak nose with citrus and green fig notes; quite full on the palate with good length. Good value. ***½
Food match: halibut with capers; Caesar salad

Casa Girelli Terriero Primitivo Sangiovese 2002 (Puglia)
$9.45 (general release)
An interesting blend of Primitivo (the progenitor of Zinfandel some think) and Sangiovese. Purple ruby colour with a nose of plum, dates and raisins; medium-bodied with a dry plum and black cherry flavour; finishes with firm tannins. Great value. ***½
Food match: pizza with spicy toppings; pasta with tomato-based sauces
