A weekly look at what’s on LCBO shelves
WHAT: Boutari Agiorgitiko 2007 (red) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Nemea, Greece
WHY: While the gift-pack detritus and shell-shocked staff may indicate otherwise, the post-holiday period is a good time for shopping at LCBO Vintages. Christmas liquid bling gives way to more sensible drinking options, like this polysyllabic offering. Light, simple, flavourful, it’ll complement most things you put on the dinner table. Not a surprise from Boutari, who consistently produce affordable, enjoyable wines.
PRICE: 750 ml/$12.95
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets as of January 7 (product #650689)
