  1. $359.40

    Maison Roche De Bellène

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables


    The entry-level red Burgundy comes from vineyards in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The vines range in age from 30 to 80 years and are farmed sustainably. The major part of this wine is matured in barriques and the remainder is done in stainless steel. This maintains a pure style with bright fruit and a fine texture. 100% delicious. Smashed cherry skins, crunchy acidity and fresh vibrant intensity. But, beneath all the fresh red flowers and sweet talc on the nose there is a fine whiff of wet rocks and autumn. Tannins are chalky, soft and plump. This true Vieilles Vignes Burgundy has killer finesse and an insane quaffable quality that makes it a dangerous wine.

    "This is fine and juicy pinot, delicate and ripe but fresh, with terrifically balanced tannins/acids. Fruit is properly in the red-tart red berry spectrum. Length is very good."

    René Bouvier

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast


    This red wine is lad in a beautiful, eye catching ruby. The dashing nose with good intensity, explores the whole range of fresh fruit. On the palate, the attack is fresh, and develops with a good mouthfeel. Frisky and dashing, this wine is a good way to discover Burgundian Pinot Noir. It will accompany braised veal, roasted poultry, or pork cooed simply in meat juices. > Learn More

  3. New Nuits St Georges Villages by Domaine Henri Gouges 2017

    $719.94

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast


    "From the southern part of the appellation. Brisk red purple. Energetic red fruit is apparent from the outset. This has exceptional density for a village wine, again in this lifted deep cherry style, covers the structure admirably, long succulent and accessible for bottling soon. The texture is excellent, silky."

    Henri Magnien

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Duck breast


    "There is again plenty of menthol influence to the very ripe yet fresh black berry aromas that are laced with hints of spice, anise and humus. While the mid-palate of the larger-scaled medium-bodied flavors is seductive and rich, the very firm, youthfully austere and stony finish is decidedly firm and built-to-age."

  5. $389.99

    Henri Magnien

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    1 x 1500ml

    Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru comes from 1.47 hectares that cover the four soil types within the vineyard; Magnien informed me that he is the only grower who has all four. The vines are Pinot Magnien and some are up to 100 years old. A gorgeous bouquet of pure black cherries, blueberry and light violet aromas bursts from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and lightly spiced, leading into a harmonious, persistent, mineral-driven finish. This should evolve into a gorgeous Les Cazetiers.

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.
