Lively and appealingly sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors deepen as the wine opens up. Closes silky and long, with harmonious tannins and an echo of juicy red fruit."

    Henri Magnien

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750ml

    Duck breast, Ham


    The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes comes from seven parcels of vines between 40 and 100 years old. There are blackberry, boysenberry and briar scents on the nose, which is quite dense and more backward than the regular Gevrey. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline, licorice-tinged entry and very fine weight in the mouth. There is some new oak on the finish that will need to be subsumed. Give this three or four years once in bottle.

    Bruno Rocca

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750ml

    Pasta, Red Meat, Risotto, Roasted Vegetables


    "The 2012 Barbaresco Rabajà is incredibly tight today. Then again, it was just bottled. Firm, incisive tannins support a core of vibrant fruit in a powerful, pulsating wine built on the pure energy that is the signature of these poor white soils. Hints of leather, savory herbs, mint and smoke add nuance on the finish. Today, the 2012 is shaping up to be more of a delicate vintage for the Rabajà. Although it is early for both years, I have a slight preference for the 2012 over the 2011."

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.
