    Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    From the one-hectare plot of Liste Cru in Barolo, it is fermented in oak casks before being rested in stainless steel to preserve its original flavors. You might remember Le Liste as the vineyard behind Giacomo Borgogno’s rare “Riserva Storico” bottling. Liste is just north of Cannubi –the very next hill in fact—between Cannubi and Brunate to be precise. With its elegant, deep ruby red, to the nose its perfume is about cherry, blueberry and mint. Balanced, with good depth and persistence. Perfect match  with hot appetizers, stuffed pastas, delicate meat.

    Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Cardinal red tending towards purple. Complex but fresh on the nose. Fruity to start, complimented in time with elegant spicy highlights. The palate is complex and fruity, with soft tannins suggesting the balanced presence of wood, and finishing with a hint of cherry. A generous wine that sits well with strong savoury dishes, light fried courses, roasts, grilled or boiled meats and well aged cheese.

    Bodegas Castro Ventosa

    Bierzo (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese


    "I was very pleasantly surprised by the elegance and balance of the 2015 Valtuille Cepas Centenarias, centenary Mencía from two plots in the village of Valtuille. This is always one of the finest wines in the portfolio, but this 2015 was especially harmonious, combining aromas of violets and wild herbs with an earthy touch and a medium-bodied palate with very refined tannins that made it beautifully textured. There is an extra degree of complexity here and it has the depth of the very old vines. This has to be one of the finest vintages for this bottling. There are roughly 2,500 bottles of it."

  9. New Lancement Côte-Rôtie by Stéphane Ogier 2015

    $1,722.00

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    3 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The finest vintage of this cuvée to date, there's a scant four barrels of the 2015 Côte Rôtie Lancement, which comes from a site high up on the slope in the Côte Blonde end of the appellation. Completely destemmed and brought up all in new oak, it has the classic perfume this cuvée always shows yet is inky colored, deep, incredibly concentrated, and long. Exotic flowers, black cherries, hints of cassis, olive tapenade and peppery, gamey notes all soar from this full-bodied, seamless, straight up awesome Côte Rôtie that reminds me of what the 1978 Guigal La Mouline must have tasted like on release. With sweet, sweet tannin, no hard edges, and a grand, majestic personality, drink it anytime over the coming 20-25 years."

    100 point, Jeb Dunnuck - Jan 2018

     

    "My top pick among Ogier’s 2015s is his 2015 Cote Rotie Lancement. It shows wonderful smoky, herbal and bacony complexity on the nose, then follows that up with a concentrated, medium to full-bodied wine that stays light on its feet through a nearly endless finish. A really spectacular effort, worth the search. Stephane Ogier grins from ear to ear when talking about his recently completed winery. He feels like it’s enabled him to raise the quality of his wines. Plus, it’s just plain cool. Ogier is also smiling about the last three vintages, which have all been excellent. We didn’t speak much about the 2017s, which had just gone to barrel, but Ogier told me he likes the charm of the 2016s. And of the 2015s, he said, 'Even if it’s a sunny-type vintage--it’s powerful and rich--we worked hard to keep the freshness and balance.' He considers the raw materials 'at the level of 2010, 2005 and 1999.' (JC)"

    "Saturated ruby. Intense, mineral-tinged aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, smoked meat, incense and pungent flowers are accented by exotic Asian spice flourishes. Sappy and deeply concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering impressively focused boysenberry, raspberry, olive paste and floral pastille flavors that are underscored by a vibrant mineral quality. Smooth, gently gripping tannins build stealthily a floral-driven finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity and resonating spiciness. (JR)"

  10. New La Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie by Stéphane Ogier 2015

    $1,722.00

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    France (France), Southern Rhône (France)

    3 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The first vintage for this cuvée and from relatively younger vines planted in 2010, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde is another gorgeous wine from this young superstar winemaker. Offering beautiful notes of black raspberries, black currants, spring flowers, violets, and incense, with more minerality and deep Syrah meatiness with air, this full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, finesse-driven Côte Rôtie has sweet tannin and a layered, seamless texture that just keeps on giving. Due to its purity of fruit and incredible tannin quality, it's already hard to resist, but do your best to give bottles 4-5 years. It's going to be a 20-to 30-year wine."

    "In its first year to return as a single-vineyard bottling, Ogier’s tiny 2015 Cote Rotie La Cote Blonde is a sure hit. Floral, raspberry aromas speak to its elegance, while it’s also concentrated and rich, with a silky finish that lasts minutes. (JC)"

    95 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Dec 2017

     

    "Inky ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe red/blue fruits, potpourri and smoked meat show excellent clarity and spicy lift. Offers deeply concentrated boysenberry, black raspberry, spicecake and violet pastille flavors. Hints of candied licorice and cracked pepper build on the back half. Finishes on a suave, alluringly sweet note of blue fruit liqueur, with slowly emerging tannins and outstanding focus. (JR)"

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.
