    Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    1 x 1500 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Immediately a sense of darker fruit in this vintage. Some stony, chalky elements, as well as dried violets and roses. Very compelling, fleshy palate with powerful black fruit and plums and thick, but smooth tannins that will carry it in the cellar. Barrel sample.

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Ruby colour with garnet red reflections. Fine and fruity notes of berries, weathered roses. Rich and strong and yet very elegant. A longer aging improves the bouquet. Very characteristic with a long, full-bodied finish.

    Jean-Marc Bouley

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Lard, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets was not touched by frost this vintage according to winemaker Thomas Bouley. It has a very focused, energetic bouquet that unfurls with alacrity in the glass, offering more black fruit than red and subtle earthy/loamy tones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, bright and tensile with just a little attenuation on the finish that I am sure will not be there once in bottle. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle and you will have a quintessential Caillerets."

    Domaine Les Pallières

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    1 x 1500 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Very complete and complex wine that has intensity and elegance. Raspberry and rose-like perfume, this has a long, red-fruit core with dark spices wrapped deep into the heart of the palate. Detailed texture, the noble, long tannins cloaked in wild, red plums and berries. Terrific freshness here. Wow. Drink or hold."

    Domaine Jamet

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "Plenty of violets, pepper and deep-set spices are all part of the equation here, and this is a very complex Côte Rôtie that has a wealth of darkly stony notes, coal smoke and dark chocolate. Just superb! The palate's succulent and swathed in plush, fine tannins that envelop black- and red-plum flavors. Plenty of volume, great elegance and a lot of detail. A vintage when experienced makers could still shine, and the sorting in the vineyard was clearly a large part of this. Classy wine with so much on offer. Best from 2020 for a decade or more. Tasted in tank shortly before bottling."

    95-96 points - James Suckling, Oct 2016

     

    "“Finesse, but not without concentration” is how Jean-Paul referred to the 2014s. We tasted a number of component parts from across his blends of 16 different parcels. Rather than bottling single parcels he prefers to blend, and keeps new oak to a minimum (10-15%). The overall impression is a fragrant, floral, peppery style with good aromatic definition and adequate concentration for medium-term ageing. It will be ready relatively early, and despite not being a terribly weighty vintage, its elegance and balance with provide much pleasure."

    Le Ragnaie

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "The bilberry, boysenberry and spice aromas and flavors border on exotic in this effusive red. Though packed with sweet fruit, it's firmly structured and plays an initial smoothness off the refined tannins. Best from 2013 through 2024."

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best red wine, along with the best red wine to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of red wines. To name some we have, dry red wine, sweet red wine, full bodied red wine, medium bodied red wine, light red wine, tannic red wine and structured red wine. There is a litany of words used to describe red wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of red wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce red wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top red wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular red wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for red wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good red wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best, along with the best values, in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

When it comes to red wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking red wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different red wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your red wine and the taste of your red wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best red wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.
