Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut is not the highest rated or best known French Champagne, but it's a remarkably good French champagne. It's also reasonably priced, at least compared to the better known champagne brands. So if you'd like to try to good French champagne to see what the fuss is all about but don't want to break the bank, you should get some Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut.
The St. Francis Winery 2008 Chardonnay is a straw-golden color with green-tinged edges and nice clarity. The flavors of this dry, full-bodied Chardonnay are very aromatic and consist mostly of apple, pear, and creamy vanilla. The acidity is strong enough to make the St. Francis Chardonnay quite refreshing.
The Chateau Ste. Michelle Orphelin is a deep, dark purple red and has a thick, velvety appearance when you swirl it in the glass. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Orphelin tastes very fruity and is very approachable for a full-bodied red wine. In fact, it's not nearly as dry as you might imagine and it's not too tannic either.
The taste of this light-bodied German Riesling consists primarily of pears and apples. It's medium-sweet and has very smooth, low acidity. This isn't a 'fine wine,' but it's a decent wine for everyday drinking and relaxing with. Relax Riesling is also usually a pretty good value for the money. I would personally prefer it if the wine were a bit more acidic because that would make it more balanced when drinking it alone, but the low acidity probably makes it more appealing to more people.
The Chateau St. Michelle 2007 Riesling is off-dry, so it isn't quite as sweet as it smells. It's rather fruity up front and has a tart, mineral finish. Overall, the taste experience is crisp and refreshing. As this medium-bodied wine warms up, the pear flavors come out more strongly. On the second day it is less acidic, sweeter, and arguably less balanced.
