Red Wine 

This is one of our first arrivals from the highly regarded 2010 vintage, and if the delectable style of this modestly priced petite château is any indication, wine lovers are going to be arguing for decades over which is the greater vintage, 2010 or 2009. Made from a blend of 50% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 18% Cabernet Franc, this fruit-forward wine, from the northern part of the Entre Deux Mers appellation, is made by Jean Lobre and his two sons, whose family has owned Bellevue Rougier for four generations. Absolutely ready to drink now, this easy-drinking Bordeaux offers oodles of soft, spicy fruit, lightly seasoned by notes of red berries, Provençal herbs, and cedar. Although it has sufficient stuffing to match with main courses of meat or poultry, this wine is also delicious by itself or with light cheeses.

New! The just-arrived 2010 Château La Maroutine Bordeaux is what I like to call an ideal "multi-task" red. You can take it home, pop the cork, and drink it tonight, or you can choose to cellar it for 2 to 3 years, to be enjoyed as it matures gracefully. In addition, while the super-low price makes for affordable everyday imbibing, it has the style and panache to serve without the least trepidation when company arrives for dinner. A classic Right Bank blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, I found the 2010 La Maroutine particularly attractive due to its immediately enjoyable vibrant, tangy red fruit, which jumps with notes of wild strawberry, cassis, with a hint of marjoram. Although not in the least heavy or over extracted, it offers an unusual degree of definition and penetration on the palate for a wine in this price category. The tannins, which in typical 2010 fashion are crisp and a bit crunchy/taut at this point, give the wine excellent freshness, while providing the structure needed for a short-term aging potential of 2 to 3 years. In short, a terrific "house" Bordeaux rouge, at a great price.

This white was a new discovery for us from one of Bordeaux's rebels, Jonathan Maltus. A classic blend of 40% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Muscadelle, it has incredibly concentrated, fresh flavors of white peach and honeysuckle with a touch of beeswax. Though the wine is made in 50% new and 50% one year old barrels, the oak is well-integrated and impeccably balanced.
