Profile Wine Group presents three new wines for the April 18 LCBO Vintages Release
Vigneti Zabu Chiantari Nero d’Avola 2018
, LCBO# 13924
Intense ruby red. Good intensity, with fruity hints of plum, red flowers, well-balanced, warm. Full-bodied, with spicy ending.
Food Pairing: It matches perfectly with red meat courses and game. Excellent with typical Italian and Sicilian recipes.
94 Pts – Luca Maroni, April 3, 2019
Chateau Le Grand Moulin Collection Grande Reserve Blaye Cotes 2016
– $17.00 – FOOD & DRINK DISCOVERY
– LCBO# 11326
The colour is concentrated and youthfully radiant. A fine, spicy nose and ripe dark fruit precedes a supple, soft attack that leads into freshness and fruit. The palate is smooth and generous, enveloped with polished tannins.
Food Pairing: Chicken with spices.
92 Pts – James Suckling, September 11, 2018
“Though he’d rather be a musical genius, Jean-François Reaud did wonders with this estate, in the family since 1904. Dense and full of tannins, it also offers ripe fruits. Its structure and density match the intensity of the fruit, meaning the wine has a great future. With a dense aftertaste, the wine will age, so drink from 2022.”
Deep and intense ruby-red colour. Powerful nose, black berries, classic of the Tannat grape. Supple in the mouth, soft, with full and well rounded tannins. Taste of cherry with bright freshness on the finish. To conclude, great fineness and full maturity.
Food Pairing: Will pair with roasted meat (lamb, beef), barbecue, meats in sauce, duck magret, cheese
90 Pts – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, June 1, 2019
“This wine comes from the southernmost estate in Madiran. Its blend of Tannat and Cabernet Franc allows softer tannins than pure Tannat and full, ripe berry flavors. The wine is elegant and aging well. Drink from 2020”
