3 Great Wines You Should Try

You may be new to wine and do not want to lose two hours at the wine store, choosing what wine will go best with your fish, or you are an experienced wine drinker who does not want to miss out on great wine. Whichever bucket you fall into, we are here to share 3 great wines that you should try.

1. White Burgundy

White BurgundyFrance is still the leader in the world of great wine production, challenging the rest of the world when it comes to award winners.

If you are looking for something a little different from a French wine, a bottle of 2007 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet will blow you away and is well worth the investment, on a special occasion.

Leflaive is one of the greatest areas in the village of Puligny-Montrachet, where the wonderfully light but rich White Burgundy is produced.

Winemaker Eric Rémy takes pride in this rich and creamy wine, with “savory oak spice wrapped around a tight core of lime, apricot and minerals”.

2. Chianti Classico

Italy is another country that produces great wine and is one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world.

There are many great wine producing regions in the country, including Piedmont in the north of the country and Sicily in the south.

Chianti Classico One of the best regions from wine production is Tuscany, home of Hannibal Lector’s favorite Chianti.

When looking for wine from Chianti, the best wines to choose from are Chianti Classicos. ‘Classico’ is a wine produced in the historically oldest part of the protected territory, with the best wine production year after year.

Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2010 is a great choice for fans of Classicos or those looking for  an intense and indulgent wine.

This wine has strong fruity notes, with big hints of strawberry coming through to tickle those taste buds.

Want to know the best thing about this wine? Not only does it taste great, it comes with a very reasonable price tag.

Drinking good wine does not always mean you have to make a big dent in your wallet, making this wine choice a realistic one to add to your list.

Italians drink 42 liters of wine per capita consumption and we all know what good taste they have, so say ‘salute’ and enjoy a glass to two of this excellent Chianti Classico.

3. Malbec

Fans of classic wine will turn their noses up at the thought of a glass of ‘New World Wine’ passing their lips, but maybe it is time for them to take a rethink: maybe you are that person.

MalbecIf you want to explore ‘New World’ wine for the first time, there is no better place than Argentina.

Due to the country’s high altitude and low humidity, it now produces top quality wine, as opposed to some of its exports during the early stages of the Argentinian wine boom.

There are a few good varieties coming out of Argentina, with rich and complex Malbec, imported from France, the pick of the bunch.

A bottle of a 2004 Bodegas Weinert Malbec will do just the trick, if you are trying Malbec for the first time.

Weinert has been a popular producer since the 1970’s and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the best growers and producers in the region.

The 2004 Bodegas has the fragrant red fruit, spice notes and intensity of flavor that make the grape so appealing.

We could go on, as there are so many great wines produced throughout the world today, but we are sure you are going to love our selection.
