Domaine Papagiannakos Savatiano 2018
This Greek white wine is the author’s “versatile mineral white”. She’s been a fan for many years, and mentions in the guide that the quality of the 2018 vintage is slightly superior to previous years. A saline wine with notes of lemon, fresh herbs, and white pepper. At this price, you might as well buy an entire case so that you have some for every occasion!
Caldas Douro 2017
A blended wine featuring varieties that are typical of the Douro region, namely Touriga Nacional, which lends this red from the 2017 vintage explosive notes of fruit. A wine with an excellent price-quality ratio and charming aromas of black fruit and spices.
Milhistorias Garnacha Manchuela 2018
Originally from the Manchuela appellation, northwest of Valencia, this medium-bodied Spanish red boasts a well-balanced structure and just the right amount of acidity. Scents of black fruits and cherry mingle nicely with notes of violet and aromatic herbs. A fine wine and a great price-quality ratio. Nadia Fournier describes it as having impeccable length for the price. Wow!
Clos la Coutale Cahors
Crisp and voluptuous, this rather robust and refreshing red pairs nicely with all kind of feasts. According to Nadia Fournier, of all the affordable Cahors wines available at the SAQ, this one, produced on a family estate of 50 or so hectares, is one for the books.
