Reassessing Alsace:
2021 La Rogerie Alsace Riesling Villages

Their 2021 Riesling Villages is gorgeous. It offers up a really fascinating agility backed by driving, textural, and almost chalky minerality. There's a pristine presentation of stone fruits and floral tones that adds a vapor-like quality.

In The Zone:
1977 Graham's Vintage Port

Graham's, which is over 200 years old last year, has long enjoyed being one of Port's top houses. The 1977 shows Graham's in top form.

Perfectionism Paying Off:
2018 Giacamo Conterno Barolo Cerretta

In 2018, Cerretta rivals Francia in a vintage where no wine was earmarked for Monfortino. This is no simple feat. 

The Cult Wines of Envinate

2019 Keller Abtserde Grosses Gewächs

The 2019 Abtserde GG boasts a mind-boggling combination of concentration and laser-like focus and cut. There are few wines around that cover such a range, and even fewer that do so with a comparable grace and harmony. 

"Excellent"-Lowest Price:
2019 Génot-Boulanger Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières

Five years ago, this was a virtually unknown domaine. With the 2014 vintage, collectors took notice. More took notice of their brilliant 2017. Génot-Boulanger is now much more widely known.

Northern Rhône 1990-2020:
Allemand, Benetiere, Chave, Gonon, Jamet, Trollat & More

Lowest Price: "Excellent for its level and recommended"
2020 Niellon Chassagne-Montrachet

Burghound writes, "the wines are always at least very good but their 2020s have that extra dimension of 'presence' which propels them to the next level."

Grace and Understatement:
2020 Jouan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbé

Clos Sorbé gets to the beating heart of the domaine like no other wine in the incredibly strong lineup does.

Cult Chablis:
2020 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Any time I see Tribut, I buy it. However, with each passing vintage, it gets increasingly difficult to find Tribut's wines in quantity.

Red Burgundy As It Should Be:
2021 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

They are wines that feel as though they're without artifice. The wines are animated by a fine-ness, a delicacy. They speak softly, but with captivating precision.

"What a great success!" - Magnum Edition:
2021 Egon Müller Scharzhof QbA Scharzhof Magnums

In any vintage, Müller's QbA is a dead serious and thrilling bottle of Riesling. However, there are special years when the wine hits a shocking level.

2018 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo

The 2018 Barolo is beautifully graceful and nuanced. It offers up plenty of detail and elegance along with soaring aromatics. It's amazing how much they were able to tease out of the vintage.

"A Champagne of extraordinary elegance and finesse"
2012 Philipponnat Clos des Goisses Magnums

It is an extremely steep and extremely chalky vineyard. The wines that Philipponnat issues from this site possess incredible structure and serious finesse. 

Hitting The Bullseye:
2021 Foillard Fleurie

It's a nimble and energetic vintage for Beaujolais. The 2021s very much feel like a throw-back vintage. Foillard wines in this year are really captivating. 

Red Burgundy:
D'Angerville, Dujac, Lafarge, Leroy, Mugneret-Gibourg, Rousseau & More

Without Peer:
Selosse Substance

Selosse's Substance is one of the most multidimensional, mind-bendingly complex wines that you will ever experience. 

Raw Power, Regal Elegance:
2016 Castello Tricerchi Brunello di Montalcino AD 1441

The 2016 AD 1441 blew us away. It's a wine that boasts impressive muscle and architecture but is elevated by great precision and an ultra-clear expression of terroir.

"This is quite a beauty!" Revisited:
2020 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Kabinett

Scharzhofberger Kabinetts, in any vintage, thrive on a steely finesse that's full of cut and mineral-drenched length that boasts the wine's nobility.

At The Height Of His Powers - Lowest Price:
2019 Dominique Lafon Meursault Les Narvaux

The Meursault Les Narvaux is an absolutely stellar example of Lafon working on his home turf of Meursault. This is a wine that I buy whenever I have the opportunity to do so. 

Piedmont Gems:
Roagna, Mascarello, Giacosa, Burlotto & More

Sub-$30 Red Burgundy:
2021 Trousselle Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune En Cre

Since discovering the wines a few years ago, Trousselle has been our go-to producer for everyday Burgundy. The quality that he turns out for the price is beyond astonishing. 

2020 Chateau Simone Blanc

Simone Blanc confounds expectations. From deep within sun-soaked Provence comes this white wine of shocking verve, aristocratic breeding, and the capacity to age for decades.

Frighteningly Perfect:
2021 Ludes Kabinett "Monster"

It is a vintage utterly perfect for the ruthlessly traditional style of this estate. We have a young grower taking over his family's winery and coming into the heights of his powers at exactly the right moment.
