What We're Drinking


Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Only in this part of Canada are conditions just right for the production of this oddball but very sumptuously delicious Cabernet Franc-based Ice Wine. The 2008 Henry of Pelham Cabernet Franc Ice Wine (200 ml $29.99) is intense by definition, with vibrant fruit aromas and flavors, exhibiting strawberry and raspberry above all others. Terrific with fruit based desserts and soft cheeses, it is also wonderful in sparkling wine for a new take on a Kir Royale.
