Domaine du Pou'jol 1999 Coteaux du Languedoc ($9.99)
The dog days of August (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) call for light, fruity and refreshing wines that can be served well chilled. This one from Southern France fills the bill: It's a clear, attractive light-copper color, with pleasant berry and herbal aromas and a crisp, fresh flavor that shows plenty of fresh fruit along with ample zippy acidity to make it a fine food match. To its credit, although it's refreshing cold, it holds its balance and actually shows more flavor complexity as it warms in the glass. U.S. importer: Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, Calif. (July 30, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: An unexpectedly good match with a vegetarian delight, baba ganouj, a garlicky Middle Eastern smoked eggplant dish somewhat akin to hummus.

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.|
