“Interestingly this is aromatically similar to the Cuvée Louis-Auguste, though the earth character is more pronounced. That's where the similarity stops however, as this is notably denser and more serious with its sleek and intense medium-bodied flavours that possess excellent depth and persistence on the balanced and youthfully austere finale. This too is quite good and worth considering.”

“Dark red. Subdued scents of black raspberry and minerals, with a hint of smoky oak. Plush in texture but with lovely snap thanks to the cranberry, boysenberry, blackberry and violet flavours. In fact, this is a bit youthfully disjointed in the early going, with its pliant mid-palate texture slightly dried on the back but granular tannins. This juicy, persistent wine is long on flavour and should reward cellaring.”

“Here there is a similar mouthfeel to the Bonnes Mares with a bit more muscle in evidence on the overtly powerful, yet velvety and imposingly-scaled flavours that exude a subtle minerality on the slightly firmer and just as impressively persistent finale. This youthfully austere and ultra-serious effort is one of those ‘buy and forget you own it’ wines as it's going to be very long-lived.”

“A very ripe, yet once again still reasonably fresh nose presents an assortment of liqueur-like notes of plum, cassis, black cherry and plenty of lovely spice nuances. The succulent, round and polished medium-weight flavours exude ample minerality on the moderately firm finale, where a hint of bitter pit fruit appears. This should be approachable on the younger side if desired, yet should have no problem aging well.”

“A wonderfully complex nose features a broad array of spice elements with those of plum, violet, sandalwood and Asian-style tea that are also trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is good punch to the refined, cool and pure medium-bodied flavours that possess better concentration on the balanced, persistent and youthfully austere finale, where the only nit is a very subtle hint of warmth. Of all of the wines in the domaine's portfolio, in my view the Ech is the most improved over the last 10 years and it shows, as the 2014 is bigger and more powerful than usual.”

“Here the expressive nose is even spicier and more floral, with its lovely array of rose petal, lilac and lavender scents adding elegance to the mostly dark pinot and earth aromas that are also trimmed in a bit of wood. However, in this case it is even subtler. As is virtually always the case, this is bigger, richer, more powerful and more muscular with excellent volume to the rich and mouth-coating flavours that deliver superb length on the chiselled, robust and hugely long finale. Patience will definitely be required.”

“Fireworks in a glass would be the operative description of the super-fresh nose of the 2014 La Tâche, and while it's not necessarily spicier or more floral than the Riche, there is a broader range of elements present, and in particular better overall aromatic depth, along with more red fruit than dark. The imposingly powerful and tautly muscular flavours possess outstanding mid-palate density while simultaneously offering excellent delineation on the intensely mineral-infused, youthfully austere and very firmly structured finish that just goes on and on. While I suspect that this will drink reasonably well after only 15 to 18 years of bottle age, note that if you want to drink it when fully mature it will require approximately 20 to 25 years of cellaring.”

“This is perhaps the most floral 2014 wine in the range, plus it's even spicier than the RSV, if not the La Tâche, with its rose petal, violet, lilac, Asian spice, sandalwood, dark berry liqueur and lavender-scented nose. Not surprisingly this is both bigger and richer than the RSV, with excellent muscle and intensity to the mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavours that deliver stunningly good complexity on the impressively concentrated but seamlessly well-balanced finale that really fans out as it sits on the palate. While this is certainly robust, the 2014 Riche displays a bit more refinement than usual at this early stage of its development.”

There is impressive size, weight and power to the more mineral-driven and refined medium-bodied flavours that are shaped by a distinctly firm tannic spine on the wonderfully persistent and mildly austere finale. This is first-rate and one serious wine in 2015, so be prepared to allow it at least 10 to 12 years first.”

This is a superb les Pruliers from Domaine Gouges and it should give a couple decades worth of drinking pleasure.”

Enters with outstanding silky refinement, then shows uncommon saline energy in the mid-palate, with wonderfully tactile flavours of red and black fruit, spices, flowers and minerals. The stunning whiplash of a finish conveys pronounced soil-driven minerality, a sexy suggestion of torrefaction and great length. This wine and the Champans deliver a magical combination of silkiness, density and energy.”

“Interestingly this is aromatically quite similar to the nose of the Latricières, though there is just a bit more wood in evidence, plus a hint of menthol. By contrast there is more size, weight, power and muscle to the big-bodied and equally mineral-driven flavours that also brim with copious amounts of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the very firm, but not hard tannic backbone on the driving, hugely long and youthfully austere finale. This is an exquisitely poised Chambertin that is very much built-to-age and is going to need a minimum of 10 years and once again, is a wine that should last for decades. In a word, brilliant.”

“Tenth-generation winegrower Xavier Monnot joined the Meursault family estate in 1994. He took over from his grandfather René Monnier, working the estate’s 17 hectares spread over several communes in Côte de Beaune. He produces seductive and accessible wines with a non-interventionist philosophy and precise vinication.”

“In much the same fashion as the Clos de Vougeot, this is inexpressive to the point of being almost mute, and it requires considerable agitation to coax the intensely floral-suffused aromas of spicy tea and dark berries to appear. There is stunningly good power and intensity to the very—make that very, very—backward broad-shouldered flavours that brim with both buckets of dry extract and an almost pungent minerality on the precise, dusty and massively long finish. I appreciate that I sometimes probably sound like a broken record with my ‘absolutely must have patience’ comments, but this is a wine that would be largely pointless to buy without the express intention of cellaring it for at least 12 to 15 years, and it should richly reward 20 to 25. In a word, brilliant.”

“Bright, dark red. Terrific crushed-rock lift to the red berry and floral aromas. Suave and fine-grained on entry, then larger-scaled on the back half, opening out and building on the finish. Tannins are dusty and broad. Very shy now but leaves behind a lovely perfume in the empty glass.”

“Bright, dark red. Captivating scents of raspberry, blackberry, dried flowers, violet and musky stone. Fat, plush and sweet but laid-back, conveying terrific saline depth and harmonious framing acidity to its dark berry and liquorice flavours. Not nearly as open in the mouth as it is on the nose; in fact, this is a baby today. Finishes with serious, broad, fine-grained tannins and lovely lift for the vintage.”

“The NV Extra Brut Complantée Grand Cru is another deeply intriguing, compelling wine from Pascal Agrapart. The blend of six varieties, planted and vinified together, yields a fascinating and wonderfully complex Champagne. Aromatically nuanced and textured on the palate, the Complantée offers a striking interplay of sensations. The presence of red grapes is felt in the wine's flavour profile and overall feel. Best of all, the Complantée will be ready to drink pretty much upon release. The Complantée is sourced from a tiny parcel measuring just 0.2 hectares in the La Fosse lieu-dit in Avize. Disgorged: June 2017. Dosage is 5 grams per litre.”

"Pure AY », since it’s right here in AY that William Deutz, the visionary who was seduced just as much by the site as by the terroir’s reputation, decided to set up shop in 1838. This terroir, on the banks of the Marne river, was already one of the most prestigious in the Champagne appellation. Shouldn’t the magic of blending, which still reigns supreme, one day, as the climate changes, be steered by beautiful single-parcel products with their distinct personality ? William’s idea of assembling one or several parcels of a same cru and a same grape may not been realized in his lifetime, but it now has come to fruition."

This deftly meshed Champagne is hard to stop sipping.”

« Jacquesson is as champenois as you can get. While respectful of the principle of blending, a highly exacting idea of the style has developed over time – intense, vinous, harmonious, as shown by cuvées 73… and the ones that followed. With the benefit of hindsight, they’ve come to offer a new, « late disgorged » release of their first blends. Magnificently harmonious and deep, this cuvée from the 2008 vintage certainly represents the apex of the estate’s work over the last 20 years. A true marvel ! »

« This bottle spent around 7 years in Krug's cellars developing its particular expression and elegance, receiving its cork in winter 2017. Every year since the foundation of the House of Krug, a new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée is created to offer the fullest expression of Champagne.  This bottle belongs to the 166ème Édition, a blend of 140 wines from 10 different years. The youngest dates back to 2010 and the oldest to 1998. Every glass poured from it is the fruit of around 20 years of careful craftsmanship. »

“The 2006 Salon is a very rich wine, almost uncharacteristically so. Deep and exotic, the 2006 exudes richness in all of its dimensions, with myriad inflections of sumptuous fruit that fill out its ample, large-scaled frame. Today, the 2006 is surprisingly accessible for a young Salon, but it needs time to shed some baby fat. At times, the 2006 recalls the 2002, but it appears to have more phenolic intensity and overall structure. Even with all of its flamboyance and pure volume, the 2006 retains quite a bit of energy and freshness. I imagine it will be a fascinating, utterly compelling Champagne to follow over the next several decades.”

“For a 22-year old wine, this Cristal rosé is incredibly young and vivacious. The lack of concession to age is also reflected in the primary fruit that ripples with scented wild strawberry and pomegranate, fleshed out with marzipan, caramel and toast. The lively, but beautifully balanced acidity gives the wine frame and form. There is a full-ish mouthfeel and hedonistic vinosity here, but the wine has no hint of heaviness on the long, sensuous finish. The overall effect is one of unrelenting pleasure, poise and precision.”
