December 2010 Tasting Notes - Wines ideal for Christmas drinking

Marsanne Vin de Pays D'Oc

 France  Marsanne - 12%
Domaine de Corneille, Arzens
£4.98 - ASDA
Peach and white blossom flavours, with a touch of minerality on the palate which gives a crisp zesty lift to the final taste. A perfect pre-dinner drink. Great with white meats and grilled fish dishes, salads, and creamy pasta dishes
Luis Felipe Edwards Cabernet Sauvignon

 Chile  Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenère
Central Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon makes up 60% of red blend from Chile's Central Valley, with Carmenère and Cabernet Franc making up the rest in equal measure. It shows a dark ruby colour and plenty of red fruits and spice on the nose and palate. The oak element has added toast and chocolate notes and a soft, velvety texture rounds things off nicely.
