Fresh for Summer

Two great wines to pick up for summer sipping:

2003 Boordy Vineyards Icons of Maryland Seyval-Vidal-Chardonnay, Hydes, Maryland--intense aromas of melon, lemon peel, pear, green apple, medium body, fresh, clean finish. Serve with Chesapeake Bay seafood specialties, including Maryland Blue Crabs or Rockfish.

NV L. Tramier et Fils 'Roncier' (Pinot Noir), Bugundy, France--notes of cherry, red fruits, spice, flavors of black cherry, mushrooms and forest floor. Very light body, light to medium tannins. A killer bargain at around $10 a bottle. Described by the importer as 'declassified' red Burgundy, hence the non-vintage and vin de table wine classification. Serve slightly chilled for summer. A great every-day red wine.
