  • Domaine Michel Gros, Vosne Romanee 1er Cru, Aux Brulees 2017


    Saturated with smoky cherry, spice and wet soil flavors, this red is rich but well-balanced by bright acidity. Delivers ample flavor while remaining light on its feet, finishing with fruit and mineral notes. Best from 2016 through 2024. 300 cases made. –BS  (Score: 90) Wine Spectator

    Tasting note: A moderately toasty nose still allows the overtly spicy aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and cassis to shine. There is superb complexity to the intense, detailed and lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that display a taut muscularity before terminating in a mouth coating and impressively persistent finish. This is excellent and worth considering though it will probably require 2 to 4 years for the wood influence to fully integrate. (Score: 90-93) -Burghound

  • Domaine Michel Gros, Vosne Romanee 1er Cru, Clos de Reas, Monopole 2017


    “This is also quite spicy if perhaps not quite as elegant as that of the Brûlées though there is just as much depth. There is excellent punch and detail to the middle weight flavors that are less muscular but even more harmonious with the same fine depth and length. This is worth checking out.”-(91-93)BH

  • Domaine Terrebrune, Bandol Rose 2017


    “One of the stars of my blind tasting was Terrebrune’s 2017 Bandol Rose, a blend of 60% Mourvèdre with 20% each Cinsault and Grenache. Crushed stone and briny notes accent peach aromas, while the medium-bodied palate is creamy and complex, a whirl of savory-umami flavors that finish salty and long. “-93 Points, Wine Advocate

  • Domaine Zind Humbrecht, Riesling, Brand, Grand Cru 2016


    “From 66-year-old vines on the south-facing granite soils of the steep and low-yielding cru (34 hectoliters per hectare), the yellow-golden 2016 Alsace Grand Cru Brand Riesling is clear, fresh and pure on the deep, ripe and mineral nose. On the palate, this is an intense, lush and elegant Riesling with a firm, mineral structure, fine acidity and a very long, salty finish with lots of power, grip and mineral expression. This is a dense and concentrated Brand that is far too young to be enjoyed today, but its aging potential should be enormous (as always), particularly in 2016 due to its very tight and mineral structure. “In 2016, the grapes were healthy, ripened early (an exception in that vintage), and the Brand fermented slowly, but the yeasts went to the end of their task,” says Olivier Humbrecht, who finds his 2016 Brand pretty delicate compared to the often rather richer style of this steep grand cru. Tasted June 2018.” -94 RP

  • Henri Bourgeois, Cote de Mont Damnes, Sancerre


    “The lime-green 2013 Sancerre Les Baronnes is a modern classic of the region and a good example to demonstrate the polished aromatic yet authentic, pure and elegant style of Henri Bourgeois’ wines. Sourced from chalky clay soils of the hills separating Sancerre from Chavignol this medium-bodied, juicy yet minerally structured and zesty Sauvignon from 20-to 40-year-old vines offers attractive white fruit flavors intertwined with piquant citrus aromas and dusty chalk flavors. This is a very pleasant, well-balanced, already accessible and stimulating Sancerre of good intensity and quality with lovely citrus flavors also in the finish and aftertaste.”-90WA

  • Honoro Vera, Mourvedre 2013


    “This round, smooth red offers plum, blackberry, licorice and smoke flavors, supported by firm tannins and balsamic acidity. Loamy earth and mineral notes linger.” -WS

  • Joseph Drouhin, Batard-Montrachet, Grand Cru 2017


    “Due to be bottled in spring 2015, the 2013 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot (under the Marquis de Laguiche banner) was cropped between September 30 – and October 8 and Véronique mentioned that the two parcels suffered a little millerandage in this year. The nose is quite forward and generous with fennel and white pepper infusing the citrus-fresh fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a pretty, lightly spiced entry with touches of yellow plum and even a hint of fish oil. There is fine weight in the mouth with a sensual finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. Excellent.”-(91-93) WA
