Bouchard Pre et Fils LaVignee Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2002 (Burgundy)
Limited time offer $16.16 until November 6, then back to $17.65 (general release)
This is a very reliable inexpensive red Burgundy. Bright ruby colour; a nose of leather and raspberry; light-bodied, lively raspberry and cranberry flavours. All the virtues of red Burgundy writ small but at an affordable price. A versatile food wine. ***

You won't find a Sauvignon Blanc at this price with this kind of style. Pale straw colour; grassy, green bean nose; gooseberry flavour, fresh, medium-bodied; good varietal character, well made. ***
Food match: ratatouille, smoked trout

Via Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2003 (Chile)
$13.95 (Vintages 694208)
Dense purple colour; floral, blackcurrant nose; sweet fruit, medium-bodied, elegant, well balanced, great length. Worth tracking down through LCBO's Infoline 416-365-5900. ****
