 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Veuve Clicquot-Ponsardin La Grande Dame Champagne 1995
  • Rosemount Shiraz 2002
  • The Little Penguin Chardonnay 2003
 

Veuve Clicquot-Ponsardin La Grande Dame Champagne 1995 (France)
$ 171.95 (Vintages 354779)
This is one of the great champagnes produced only in good years. It's a blend of 62.5% Pinot Noir and 33.5% Chardonnay from eight grand cru vineyards. Pale straw in colour with an almond, caramel, toast and lemony nose, it has a richer, creamier mouth feel than the leaner 1996. *****
Food match: lobster Newburg, duck à l'orange

Rosemount Shiraz 2002 (South Australia)
$16.05 (General release # 302349)
The most reliable Shiraz under $20. Dense purple; blackberry nose with a medicinal, black licorice note; medium-full-bodied, fruity and jammy but balanced with acidity. ***½
Food match: beef casserole, pasta with spicy meat sauce

The Little Penguin Chardonnay 2003 (South Eastern Australia)
A good introductory Chardonnay at a modest price. Medium straw colour; spicy, sweet melon nose; medium-bodied with creamy, sweet melon flavour and a spicy, clovey oak finish. Good value. ***½
Food match: roast chicken, pork chops
