    Château du Bergey

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Château Du Bergey opens to inviting aromas of dark cherries and blackberries which come together with fresh herbs, dark chocolate, licorice and hints of fresh florals. A full-bodied Fronsac, with a gorgeous plush texture and beautifully polished, well-integrated tannins making for a wonderful mouthfeel. Shows outstanding depth and opulence, with a core of juicy dark fruits that bust on to the long, supple finish. This is an absolutely fantastic showing which already has much to offer."

    Recaredo

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    It is said that long ago, a bat tasted a bunch of grapes at night and learned an ancient secret.

    Even today, his descendants trace aerial geometries over the ripening grapes, and the old secret is still revealed in a glass of Nebbiolo.

    Light garnet colour. Aromas of fig paste, cherry jam, peony, pomegranate, tack room, and green beans with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length red apple, plum, tar, and tobacco finish with grippy tannins and moderate oak. A dry Nebbiolo with a beautiful floral, fruity nose.

    Clos Cibonne

    France (France), Provence (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    This pure tibouren 2018, vinified in red by the Deforges family at Clos Cibonne, is a marvel. Faintly colored, soflty extracted, well peppered, with flavors of crushed strawberries, brillant... It fluctuates between a Pineau d'Aunis from Coteaux du Loir, the Thierry Navarre's wink and Emmanuel Reynaud's grenache without it exuberance. And to think that if it is not gather with another variety, it will lose its name Côtes de Provence. What a shame, because it is today one of the finest and singural reds of the region.

    Quinta da Muradella

    Monterrei (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Herring, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted


    "Lurid, violet color. Lively, mineral-tinged aromas of cherry, black raspberry and candied flowers pick up a suggestion of incense as the wine stretches out. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering intense cherry liqueur, dark berry and spicecake flavors and a suave violet pastille accent. Finishes silky, floral and impressively long, with fine-grained tannins adding shape and gentle grip. (Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, followed by 10 months in a stainless steel tank.)"(JR)

    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.

  6. New Suisun Grand Durif by Caymus Vineyards 2017

    $948.00

    Caymus Vineyards

    California (USA), Suisun Valley (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Duck breast, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    Suisun (su-soon) Valley, which lies to the Southeast of Caymus, is only a 40-minute drive and is similar to Napa Valley 40 years ago. With its warm days and cool nights, the region is known for delicious stone fruits and walnuts – increasingly, it is also gaining recognition for its wine. Durif is synonymous with Petite Sirah, the widely grown grape in the region – Chuck added “Grand” to the name of Suisun-grown Durif because he doesn’t do “petit”. With lush textural tannins, this wine is rich, supple and totally enjoyable.

     

    A velvety purple with ruby-red highlights, the 2017 vintage of Grand Durif features an abundant one of dark plums and baked blueberries, woven with scents of lavender, white rose petals, sweet smoke and brown spice. Entry on the palate is smooth, yielding to a pop of high, luxurious tannins that then sneak back, revealing lush fruit flavors of dark berry cobbler. What gives this wine its singular character are the tannins - strong yet supple, pronounced while being strikingly soft. The finish is long, with warm, evocative notes of unsweetened cocoa. Still quite young, this vintage can be enjoyed now and also has tremendous aging potential.

  7. New Rioja Gran Reserva 904 by La Rioja Alta 2010

    $774.00

    La Rioja Alta

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Suckling Pig, Vegetables


    "Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now, or hold for a very long time."

    Top 100 Spanish Wines of 2019 - James Suckling, Dec 2019

     

    "It seems like yesterday when the superb 2001 was released, and now I already have the 2010 Gran Reserva 904 in my glass. It has to be among the greatest modern time vintages of this mythical bottling, where they aim for a wine that has a long aging potential. This is mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 13.5% alcohol, and it matured in fourth-used American oak barrels for four years, during which time the wine was racked every six months. It has the combination of elegance and power only the best vintages are capable of, with the classical aromas, great detail and nuance, very good balance and persistence. They consider 2010 among the best years of this century, and maybe future generations will talk about 2010 like we talk about the great classical vintages of yesterday today. The palate is polished but shows plenty of energy and tension, the tannins are very fine and elegant, and the flavors are focused and clean. This has to be one of the greatest wines from the vintage. A legend in the making."

    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."

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.
