    Jean-Maurice Raffault

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "This wine is richly structured and still densely tannic. With its ripe red fruits and firm tannins, the wine is destined for aging. Coming from the plateau above the town of Chinon, the wine has density and longevity."

    Château Haut La Grenière

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    "This 17th-century estate is on the plateau of Lussac, with 12 acres of silica and clay soil. The wine has a smoky edge along with perfumes from the Cabernet Franc in the blend. Its berry flavors, ripe tannins and cinnamon touch are rich and promise some good aging."

  4. New La Chaintrée by Clotilde & René-Noël Legrand 2011

    $359.40

    Clotilde & René-Noël Legrand

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Medium intensity color with purple highlights. The nose is on cooked and dried fruits, aromatic complexity on black olive, fig and cherry. In the mouth, the attack is ample and powerful, the tannins are silky and delicate with a beautiful length. The aromatic is jammy on black fruits and pine resin. This vintage is to be enjoyed now, but can also be appreciated for another 10 years.

    Château Clos de Sarpe

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    The second wine of the micro-cuvée Chateau Clos Sarpe. Consistently one of the best second wines from St Emilion. The 1998 is a delicious soft and succulent vintage of this lovely Claret showing classic St Emilion aromas and flavours plus some developed flavours of grilled meats, soft toasted oak and herbaceousness on the length. A really lovely wine that is ready now.

    Castell d'Encus

    Costers del Segre (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    3 bottles x Thalarn 2012

    3 bottles x Quest 2011

     

    "The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

    95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Feb 2014

     

    Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.

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.
