  • Leon Beyer Riesling 2004
  • Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2003
 

Earlier this week I attended the "Grand Tasting Wines of France" event at the Carlu and reacquainted myself with some of the less costly wines from France on the LCBO's general list.

Château Bonnet White 2004 (Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux)
$12.90
I have always been impressed by the quality of this Semillon/Sauvignon blend with 10% Muscadelle. A very consistent wine. Medium straw colour; grassy, green plum and citrus nose; medium-bodied, citrus and gooseberry flavour, very crisp and dry. ***½
Food match: oysters; grilled sardines

Leon Beyer Riesling 2004 (Alsace)
$14.75
The driest of Alsace Rieslings. Very pale colour; a nose of white flowers, honey and citrus peel; medium-bodied, very crisp and lively. Lean and sinewy with delicate flavours. ***½
Food match: seafood risotto; smoked salmon

Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2003
$17.50
One of the great bargains from France. This particular vintage was stunning in its intensity. Deeply coloured ruby; tobacco, vanilla and ripe blackberries on the nose; full-bodied, richly extracted with a dry dark chocolate and herby note. ****
Food match: venison stew; pepper steak
