WHAT: Chateau Saint-Andre Corbin 2008 (red) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Bordeaux, France
WHY: In the Saint-Emilion region, you’re lucky to get a cork for less than $25. But set your sights north on the less exclusive postal code of Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion and, voila, elegant, restrained, Merlot-based wines at mere-mortal pricing. True to form, Saint-Andre delivers full, focused flavours without excessive heft. If you want to enjoy this silky little number’s sensations of mushroom and sour cherries, decant before dinner and serve with something roasty/fatty, or give it some cellar time.
PRICE: 750 ml/$21.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets (product #43810)
