    Good episode, will look for the Marques de Riscal.

    QOTD – Usually a Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand.

    A vintage year like 2005 could do that but I would still pass for the price point / value.

    QOTD: Too many to name. Depends on my mood and what we’re eating.

    qotd: Dont have a hump day wine, depends on my mood Ill grab a wine, can be a muscadet to a brunnello to a 1er Cru Burgundian who knows could be a cup of tea

  • QOTD: Hump day wine, hmm, well I think if I am going to go to the SAQ right now and pick up a bottle of wine it would be the Malivoire Gamay. Man, there aren’t many left in Montreal, but it’s soo good. I love my Niagara red. It’s 18$ but it’s so delicious and I would totally drink a glass a day for the week. I love to savour that sweet sweet niagara nectar.

    I don’t understand many of the comments here : Marqués de Riscal reserva is a “sure value”, and although some complain about its price, where do you find a decent US wine (or a French wine) for that price?
    If you really want to thrill with a Rioja or a wonderful “old world wine” wonderful value for price, go for a “Tondonia”…also a visit of the bodega is a must!

    QOTD : I have the luck to live in Spain, so my “daily” wines come mainly from little known regions, like Campo de Borja. Brilliant price for money, at 3-4?/bottle. Or a nice 75cl bottle of special beer, from my home country, Belgium…with spicey dishes, there’s almost nothing better than a Lachouffe…check it out!
