|Château Mas Neuf 1998 Costières de Nîmes ($7.99) GOOD BUY!|
A consistent favorite for value through several years, this entry from the ripe '98 vintage is very dark garnet in color, with bright red aromas of raspberries and strawberries. Its juicy bowl-of-fruit flavor is so lush that the wine almost seems sweet at first, but zippy citric acidity shapes it up on the finish. Good quaff, good food wine and an exceptional value. U.S. importer: Kysela Pere et Fils Ltd., Winchester, Va. (Jan. 1, 2001)
FOOD MATCH: A natural partner with Italian-style roast beef braised with onions.
Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:|
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the Wine Lovers' Page name and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
