The 2018 Almondo Arneis Vigne Sparse is an electric white wine, the perfect complement to briny seafood or my favorite, clam pizza. It’s a blend of parcels, from younger vines, meant for earlier and more casual drinking. The 2018 has soaring, high toned aromatics with juicy peachy fruit and a stony mineral freshness.
The Tuffo cuvee is intensely aromatic and loaded with flavors of quince and apple. It has a wonderful complexity to it, hitting at first with burst of fresh fruit and finishing with a vibrant minerality.
In the sixteen years that he’s been at the helm of his family’s domaine, David Reynaud has taken them from relative obscurity to now an allocated commodity that sommeliers all over NYC are fighting over. The 2017 Crozes-Hermitage is an elegant Northern Rhône Syrah which screams for lamb. Don’t miss it!
Lydia Cornu’s 2018 Pernand Blanc Les Vignes Blanches is intense, loaded with flavors of green apple, lemon cream and hazelnuts. It’s crazy long on the palate, mineral and stony all the way through which keeps it light on its feet and incredibly drinkable. The only downside to Lydia’s white wines is that she makes tiny amounts of wine– just a few barrels total.
This domaine was my favorite of the white burgundy domaines at Jean Georges. Referts might as well be a Grand Cru in my book. Its old vines, rooted in a sheer slab of limestone, produce epic wines of finesse, length and power that will wow at any table next Saturday night and every other for at least the next decade.
The 2018 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a terrific white Burgundy with a killer nose of citrus rind, quince and thyme that opens up to a dense, packed mid-palate of crunchy fruit. The finish is classic Chablis, chalky, mineral and fine. The lengthy acidity is what makes it so versatile at the table and provides structure for great aging potential.
Louis Boillot made some of the best wines I’ve tasted in Burgundy from 2017, with a rare combination of aromatic lift, concentration, and structured. The Gevrey Chambertin is a classic; intensely fruity with a mineral streak a mile long. This is premier cru level wine at the “villages” price.
Bruno Lafon’s Langeudoc Blanc is medium bodied, with a silky mouthfeel and a fine, elegant finish that is both long and mineral. This rare white wine is a complex blend of Grenache and Roussanne that brings a unique kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors that’s a perfect match for Thanksgiving turkey. Like all of Bruno’s wines, the price point is a hard to beat.
Robert Foley’s Shelter Cabernet Sauvignon gets released after years of both barrel and bottle aging once they’re finally deemed ‘ready’ by the master himself. Not starving for money or fame, Foley holds the wine back out, aging graceful, smooth blends of Napa Cabernet from some of the same vineyard sites he uses to make his signature wines.
It took almost a year of prodding but I finally got a warm introduction to the folks of this historic distillery. I was not only able to secure a barrel for the restaurant, but was even able to choose it from a lineup of a dozen! The barrel that I selected was head & shoulders better than the others I tasted, aged 12 years at one constant temperature.
The 2018 has a green-tinged straw color with intense citrus and anise on the nose, plus a strong chalky tone. It is absolutely electric on the palate, with great vibrancy to the flavors of lime, pink grapefruit and blood orange. The finish is long and stony. This is a terrific new Sancerre you don’t want to miss!
Every grape at Roc des Anges is picked by hand when the temperature is coolest and is kept cool all the way into the press. From there, the effect of the mineral soil takes over, providing great finesse and freshness in every bottle. This white blend has rich fruit, vibrant minerality, and a beautiful bouquet of aromas.
