10 Top Bottles

EASTER WINES

2002 Avery Lane Sauvignon Blanc ($7) From a Washington State producer with a remarkable commitment to value, this lively, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc (in only its second vintage) has bright fruit and a well-integrated cut of citrusy acidity.

2002 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé ($27) A fruity but dry Provençal rosé is especially good with a salty ham. This bottling has the body of a red wine and the juiciness of a white.

2000 Museum Crianza ($14) This red from north-central Spain’s Cigales region is a lot like a lively, lightly aged Rioja. It’s medium-bodied with flavors of spicy black pepper and crushed plum.

2001 Potel-Aviron Morgon Château-Gaillard ($19) A fine Beaujolais may be the most flexible wine you can buy—able to complement heavy grilled meats but not so intense that it overwhelms lighter dishes. This elegant, fruity version is from dynamic Burgundy négociant Nicolas Potel.

2001 Le Serre Nuove di Tenuta dell’Ornellaia ($50) Grilled lamb is a Tuscan specialty, and this generous Italian red from the Tuscan region of Bolgheri is the meat’s perfect match—with soft, refined tannins and an appealing youthful suppleness.
