30 SECOND WINE ADVISOR |
For our first dinner back home after our trip, we enjoyed a simple, affordable but tasty bottle from chosen to recall our recent days in France.
La Montagnette 1998 Côtes-du-Rhône ($8.99)
Clear, dark ruby in color, it breathes jammy, peppery black-fruit aromas. Full, tart and bright flavors focus on fragrant black pepper and sour cherries. Just as 1997 was a "can't miss" vintage in Chianti, 1998 is shaping up as a similar sure bet for the Southern Rhone. U.S. importer: Hand Picked Selections, Warrenton, Va. (May 14, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: Just right with garlicky grilled chicken.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.|
