Vintages February 16 2013 Release

This release continues the agonizingly slow upward drift in the quality of wines offered by the LCBO in the new year. One wine that I enjoyed (a lot) last summer at the winery is the 2007 Antinori Badia A Passignano Chianti Classico Riserva. It was lush, savoury, fresh-tasting and rich in brambly dark fruit flavour. Give it a try at one of the LCBO tasting bars.

Good wine. I have the '06. Not the current release, but whenever I run out of the case, I get the next release. Reasonably priced as well...

Is the 2010 Delas Crozes Hermitage a re-release, or is this a new one?

2007 Gemma Colarej Barolo could be interesting. Their Gemma Giblin Barolo has been good for the money.

I had a nice experience with the 2006 Poliziano VNdM so I'll be getting a few of the 2009s.

Just saw that a store in Calgary is selling it for $36. Let's hear it for free market! LOL Crazy

Ah yes, the free market, where every seller can charge whatever buyers are willing to pay. I know the Kensington Wine Market well. They're perfectly situated to take advantage of the disposable income that flows so freely in Cowtown these days. I don't blame them - I would probably do the same. I used to make it a point to stop in on every trip to Calgary but as I watched their prices creep, they dropped off my list.

Had the poliziano last night and really liked it. On par Witt the finest retro and better than a lot of $40 brunellos. Will be getting more.

Was pleasantly surprised to see some 2010 plan Pegau in general list - no idea how long it's been there. Easily one of the top 2010 cdr's I've had. Thinking this might be a case buy.

Thanks for the tip, not a bad price. Looks like it just rolled out as there are full case counts at most stores.

Trying a Pegau CdR now... it's just okay - promising on the nose but that's where it ends. I'll probably swap them for the Galevan Paroles de Femme CdR which is $13.50 which I've been enjoying a fair bit.

I slammed it in the fridge for a bit and it's been improving a bit in the past hour. They're probably on par.

Nevermind, LCBO published the wrong review for this wine or the wrong wine for the review. Roll Eyes


Thought it was something else unitl I looked a little closer at the label.

Any final conclusion?

I still prefer the Galevan but it's just down to preference at this point. They're both pretty decent for the price.

i had them side by side tonight. i prefer the meatier pegau, my better half prefers the more elegant galevan. as vijay noted, good for the price.

the easy part was deciding 6 of each.
