Wine of the Week



Although Wine Spectator's 2002 "Wine of the Year" -- E. Guigal's 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape -- has vanished from retail shelves, do not despair! Guigal's Cotes du Rhone may be a somewhat lesser-pedigreed cousin, but it still offers a fruit bomb on the palate and an even greater value on the pocketbook. Blended from Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre grapes plucked from primarily Southern Rhone vineyards. A harmonious union of flavors with rounded but firm tannins to drink alone or pair with food. Great with cheese, lamb, cassoulet and Mediterranean cuisine. Available at most Sav-A-Centers, Prytania Liquor Store, Elio's Wine Warehouse, Dorignac's, Breaux Mart on Severn Avenue, both Martin Wine Cellar locations, and Byblos Market on Veterans Memorial Boulevard.
