680 NEWS Wine Reviews – December 1–3, 2017

Château de Pierreux Brouilly 2015
Beaujolais Nouveau is one thing but for a more complex wine try this village-named Beaujolais from a warm vintage – Château de Pierreux Brouilly 2015. Deep purple-ruby in colour, it offers a nose of black cherries and chestnut skins; medium-bodied, dry, firmly structured and elegant with well-extracted cherry and plum flavours, it costs $19.95 at Vintages outlets. Chill it for grilled tuna, or serve it at room temperature for roast chicken. That’s Château de Pierreux Brouilly 2015 from the Beaujolais region at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I’m Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #5496) (89)

Tawse Sketches of Niagara Riesling 2015
Tawse Sketches of Niagara Riesling has always been one of my favourite Rieslings. The 2015, currently at Vintages outlets, is a good example of why Ontario succeeds with this variety. Pale straw in colour, the nose is spicy, honeyed grapefruit with a thread of minerality. Medium-bodied, and dry, it offers flavours of honey, grapefruit and lemon, crisply dry with good length. Serve it with seafood or as an appetite-stimulant before dinner. It costs $18.95 at Vintages outlets. That’s Tawse Sketches of Niagara Riesling 2015 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I’m Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($18.95, Vintages #89029) (89)
