WHAT: Château d’Or et de Gueules les Cimels 2005 (white) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Saint-Gilles, France
WHY: It’s sitting there covered in a winter’s worth of dust and rust, but any day now you’re going to open the tank, throw the match, and another season of grilling will commence. Grilled anything needs some oomph in a wine, and this one’s got it: brambly fruit and lots of backbone. Just don’t blow yourself up.
PRICE: 750 ml/$15.95
