“The wines: with the sunny and warm 2015, many Sauvignons from the area became very opulent, but the Dagueneau family wines maintain a phenomenal energy, resulting from meticulous work in the vineyard and long aging in the cellar. Clean and balanced, the Blanc Fumé will be the most accessible as a young wine. Wait for the other cuvées, they will show more energetic richness by 2020. The Pur Sang will showcase its power and persistance in twenty years. With its mix of class and tension, Buisson Renard is certainly the freshest of this vintage, and will go on for decades. The density and richness of Silex will come together over time. As usual, the Sancerre Mont-Damné shows seductive amplitude, without any lack of depth or detailed persistence.”

“L’année 2013, by Frédéric Savart, is most likely the best interpretation we’ve seen of this bottling. In the Savart vines, 2013 yielded some exceptionally ripe grapes.

A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, this champagne was aged on fine lees in oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation was blocked.
This cuvée gives a central place to tension and vinosity. In certain moments, it’s even reminiscent of great white burgundies.
The color is a beautiful bright gold.
On the nose, L’Année 2013 is already showing fine maturity, with good freshness and some mouth-watering pastry notes.
On the palate, the 2013 vintage shows up as structured, with good presence, substance and finesse. A vintage that perfectly combines tension and richness.
Fantastic! ”

“Frédéric Savart’s 2013 Mont Benoît is a rare cuvée: only 2,000 bottles were made. This is a champagne made from a blend where Pinot Noir (95%) gets the lead role, with 5% Chardonnay to bring a bit of freshness. These grapes come from the Mont BenoÎt lieu-dit, in the village of Villers-aux-Nœuds.

This cuvée showcases all of Frédéric Savart’s know-how, and his ability to put together wines that show beautiful vinosity, and look to the great wines of Burgundy. Frédéric Savart chose to vinify and age this cuvée in oak, to bring it vinosity and lovely volume. Wines remained in barrel for 10 months, with no bâtonnage. To keep tension and support greater ageability, malolactic fermentation was blocked.

The 2013 Mont Benoît by Savart is an exceptional champagne that should be kept for enlightened tasters. ”

“Frédéric Savart’s 2013 Mont des Chrétiens is an extremely rare cuvée, of which only 500 magnums were made. It’s vinified exclusively from Chardonnay from the Mont des Chrétiens lieu-dit in Ecueil.

It’s an atypical Blanc de Blanc from a single terroir, Ecueil, renowned for the finesse of its Pinot Noirs. This makes for some rather round and generous Chardonnay. Frédéric Savart chose to vinify and age this cuvée in oak, to bring it vinosity and lovely volume. Wines remained in barrel for 10 months, with no bâtonnage.

Take Marsanne and filter it through a bed of rocks, and you’d have an idea of what this beauty tastes like. Full-bodied, thick, unctuous and concentrated, it’s certainly one of the most exciting dry whites coming from the Northern Rhône Valley today.”

“The 2015 Côte Rôtie Seigneur de Maugiron is a blend of several parcels in the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde, aged in new and second use barrels. It’s less aromatic than many of its brethren at this point, but it does offer attractive red berry aromas bolstered by red and black fruit on the palate with hints of cracked pepper and smoke. It’s a serious effort, with dusty tannins that suggest it will age gracefully for a decade or two.”

“The 2015 Hermitage La Chapelle is one of the estate’s finest recent efforts. It’s packed with firm tannins and will need to be lost in the cellar for a decade, but it will reward those with patience. Richly concentrated and full-bodied, it hits all the expected notes—cassis, black olive, smoke, crushed stone, pencil shavings and espresso—then finishes long, with an aristocratic sense of reserve and austerity. Winemaker Jacques Devernois compares it to a woman’s black dress, meaning it speaks of elegance and class.”

It shows great concentration, pouring across the palate in a single jolt of dark fruit, expanding and intensifying on the powerful finish. Black cherries and plums carry hints of molten rock, charcoal and other inorganic complexities, which are brightened by crisp acids and buffered by firm tannins.”

“This is from vines planted to a more easterly aspect, and there’s a wealth of fine fragrances and detailed aromas such as dark cherries, plums, dark stones and pepper. The palate has plenty of dark Belgian chocolate, black fruits, dark spices and smooth, supple yet muscular tannins. A wonderfully balanced, soft, super-long and great 2013. Bottled February 2016 after 30 months in 100% new oak. Fabulous wine that’s best from 2018 and for a decade thereafter at least. From a special plot up above the township—from the same granite as Hermitage.”

“2016 was a slow ripening year, and there was some rain. They waited for the grapes to recover, so the grapes for the 2016 Leirana were harvested a little later, with perfect ripeness and a little more body and lower acidity. But we’re talking 13.4% alcohol and 8.6 grams of acidity (tartaric), very good figures. It’s a very complete wine, with superb balance and freshness and without excessive acidity that can sometimes happen. This is still very young, but it will improve in bottle and possibly become one of the best, if not the best, vintages of Leirana.”

“This is a new wine made by Planeta in very limited numbers. The 2014 Sicilia Menfi Didacus is a pure expression of Chardonnay executed in a beautifully Burgundian style, complete with a sunny Sicilian twist. The wine shows precision and focus, yet it offers a generous array of stone fruit and floral aromas along the way. As the wine takes on more weight in the glass, it begins to reveal rounder and more opulent tones of Sicilian almond, candied fruit, orange peel, anise seed, and salty mineral tones that recall the soft sea breezes that wash gently over Menfi in the southern part of the island.”

“The 2016 Branco Grande Reserva Mirabilis is a blend of 9% Viosinho, 21% Gouveio and 70% very old vines, aged for eight months in an 80/20 mixture of new and used oak (mostly French, with 15% Hungarian). It comes in at 14% alcohol. This was the final blend and out of barrel, a tank sample due to be bottled in a few days. This is Quinta Nova’s high prestige white. At the moment it is impressive, graceful as always, pointed and perfectly balanced. This year has less Viosinho than the 2015, but it is mostly along the same lines otherwise. Its wood shows a bit at the moment, but that will get better and gives this some upside potential after it has some time to settle in the bottle. As a big white that leans to elegance and freshness, it is very appealing. It should age well—although I suspect the 2015 will do a little better. We’ll see in time.”

“I was really blown away by the 2010 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva, their take on more classical Rioja; it is aged in oak for a longer time, but not without having selected grapes from their very best plots that would benefit from the extended élevage. The varietal composition is approximately 75% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and 5% Graciano. Like all of the wines here, it fermented in small stainless steel and oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and then matured in oak barrels for some 26 months. The nose is full of flowers, blood orange, sweet spices, violet pastille and curry. It’s very aromatic and perfumed, with the herbs that you find in the Remelluri mountains, rosemary especially. It is extremely attractive, with a nose that makes you go back to it over and over again. This is still very young, but terribly balanced. The tannins are refined and there is a fine thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up. This could very well be the best vintage of Granja so far.”

This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity—a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine.”

All the elements are in the right place. This is an absolutely delicious wine, with plenty to recommend it, including its price.”

“The 2015 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard is one of the more nervous, tightly wound wines in the range, largely a reflection of the site’s location at 1,000 feet on the Sonoma site of Mt. Veeder. Iron, savory herbs, chalk, white pepper and dried flowers are some of the signatures. This is a rare 2015 that is likely to require at least some cellaring.”

“The 2014 Barbaresco Cottà is one of the least expressive wines in this range, which is quite surprising, as it is usually the exact opposite. Plush and deep on the palate, with its typical breadth on display, the 2014 possesses notable freshness and nuance. The wine’s reticence today is likely an excellent sign for the future. Moreover, the French oak, often an issue with this wine, is totally integrated.”

“A rich, explosive wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Currà possesses remarkable depth, intensity and power. Dark cherry, smoke, leather, spice and savory herb nuances saturate the palate in an explosive, full-throttle Barbaresco. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2013 is going to need at least several years in bottle to fully come around. A final blast of exotic, perfumed aromatics makes it very hard to move on to the next wine.”

“The 2014 Barbaresco Pajoré is broad, ample and super-expressive. Dark cherry, spice, lavender, licorice and leather flesh out in a multi-dimensional, complex Barbaresco endowed with myriad shades of nuance. Here, too, the tannins are fully ripe, which allows all the purity of the fruit to come through loud and clear.”

“Cavallotto is on a roll with some very impressive new releases. The 2013 Barolo Bricco Boschis is a tremendous effort that has an edge on the excellent 2010 vintage in my view. The wine shows a beautifully exuberant but elegant bouquet with the ethereal and undertone fruit and spice aromas you get with Nebbiolo. Although the wine is never overdone, it does show silky persistence and a long finish that comes from the noble nature of the tannins and the wine’s textural finesse. Yet, it is playfully deceiving in a way because behind that polished grace, it delivers impressive depth and power.”

“The 2012 Barolo Pajana represents an important stylistic change. Domenico Clerico is increasingly moving away from small barrique and is embracing more large Slavonian oak casks. In fact, this wine sees equal use of both small and large wood. The end result is terrific and the wine is both elegant and powerful down to its inner core. The aromas are fine and sharp, and the mouthfeel is textured and rich. Those of us who have followed the evolution of this innovative estate would probably associate Domenico Clerico with contemporary wines and French barrique. But this stylistic trend is not totally unexpected given a region-wide desire to return to roots.”

“Ciabot Mentin and Pajana are both single vineyards. Because they are solely farmed by this estate, these names have been registered in copyright as fantasy brands that no one else can use. Domenico Clerico’s 2012 Barolo Ciabot Mentin is a beautifully meaty and succulent wine. It opens to an enriched and dark appearance with beautiful garnet and ruby highlights. The bouquet sports wide shoulders with dark fruit, spice, tar and toasted hazelnut. In the mouth, it shows depth, succulence and power.”
