Wine of the Week for October 16, 2006

Baron Philippe De Rothschild Viognier 2004 - $10.95
Style: W3

After a period of, frankly, lack-lustre performance, Rothschild’s entry-level wines appear to be back. Look for luscious aromas of citrus, spice, melon and mineral. The palate is quite big, showing more spice, a whiff of grapefruit (pun intended) and mineral. Quite big in the mouth, and long, this one is rich and elegant and perhaps even a bit brash. I’d go with seafood, gazpacho or something Middle Eastern. (LCBO 619221)
