The 2016 Vigna del Lago may last forever, seriously. I was pretty stunned upon tasting. This is cellar worthy wine, obvious to anyone on the very first sip. The tannin is so structural, that this wine may very well still be drinking well 30+ years for now. Not something you can say very often. But it also has enough primary fruit that it can still be enjoyed from 2024 onward.
“This extremely ripe and bold style of Pinot Noir will please those seeking such lushness. Dark in the glass, it begins with black cherry, toasty caramel and cola milk shake aromas. The palate is hefty and heavy, carrying ripe berry but also tart red-plum-skin flavors, as licorice adds spice.” – Wine Enthusiast

Decanter’s Italian Wine Expert Michaela Morris says that the 2019 vintage for Vino Nobile should yield, “loads of enjoyment for the next 7-10 years of drinking” and then she would go on to name her favorite 2019 Vino Nobile that she tasted… yep you guessed it, Boscarreli. She described it as, “Fleshy, chewy, racy and nuanced – simply one of the best straight up Vino Nobiles I have tasted.”

The 2016 Burgess Cabernet from Wine Spectator’s 98 point vintage is irresistible and a perfect example of what Howell Mountain fruit is supposed to be all about. It’s dark and crunchy, with a super graceful texture. The fruit is deep, dark and austere. And while this is enjoyable now – this final vintage in a five-year drought cycle brought us naturally thinned vineyards that produced wines worthy of the long haul. So my advice is to buy six and bury them in the cellar.
In the 2020 vintage in Gevrey-Chambertin, yields were super low and temperatures were hotter than most Burgundian winemakers are accustomed. Many picked too late when the sugars were high and the fruit really ripe, but that was not the play. Still, Ann remained as cool in those hot temps as she did so many years ago in Napa, concentrating more on acid levels than sugars and picking at just the right time. This wine is absolutely singing – it’s an age-worthy beauty that should be even better in 4-7 years.
93 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 93 Points, James Suckling
Drawn from some the finest parcels on the storied hill of Montosoli, home to some of the most famous and sought after wines. The 2017 Cerbaia is a sleek, full-bodied beauty that Parker’s Wine Advocate called, “silky and polished” while also mentioning its “power” and “freshness” in their 93-point review. Suckling echoed the sentiment with his own 93-point score, calling it, “full-bodied and solid with attractive tannins that give the wine form and tension.”

“From the team of Nicolas Glumineau at Pichon Comtesse de Lalande, the 2018 Château De Pez is a gorgeous 2018 that should be on every Bordeaux lover’s radar (and should be a great value as well). Notes of blackcurrants, blueberries, candied violets, and graphite define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, rockingly polished tannins, terrific purity, and a great finish. It’s terrific and is going to have 15-20 years or more of longevity.” -Jeb Dunnuck
96 Points, Galloni – Vinous – 94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2020 Franc-Mayne is an exotic, heady wine. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, licorice and espresso lend an air of dark, sepia-toned beauty throughout. Plush, silky and generous, the 2020 is wonderfully deep and layered. Those qualities continue to emerge effortlessly over time. This ample Saint-Émilion has so much to offer.”

Chateau Lafite Rothschild is one of only four First Growth Bordeaux and one of the rarest bottles in the world to get your hands on. In the 2002 vintage, Chateau Lafite Rothschild is one of only a handful of bottles you absolutely need in your cellar. Bordeaux’s most famous critic, American journalist Robert Parker, Jr. called the wine, “A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite.” This one is an all-timer, and a Bordeaux collector’s dream.
100 Points, Jeb Dunnuck – 99-100 Points, James Suckling – 98-100 Points, Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Absolutely pure gold and reminding me of the 2009 (or is it the 2010?), the 2020 Château Smith Haut Lafitte sports a dense purple hue to go with incredible aromatics of blackberries, blueberries, scorched earth, wood smoke, and acacia flowers. One of the most concentrated, rich, and sexy wines in the vintage, this massive and extraordinarily opulent 2020 shows the vintage’s pure, elegant profile yet backs it up with sensational levels of fruit and texture. Based on 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it already offers pleasure given its wealth of fruit, but it deserves 7-8 years of bottle age and will evolve for 40-50 years. Not enough can be said about the quality of these wines.” -Jeb Dunnuck
100 Points (Bordeaux of the Vintage), Decanter
99 Points, James Suckling – 98 Points (Cellar Selection), Wine Enthusiast – 98 Points, Vinous
Here it is – the perfect 100-point Troplong Mondot. It was one of only 5 wines(!) in the 2020 vintage to receive a perfect score from Decanter – joining the likes of Mouton Rothschild, Petrus, Chateau LC Haut-Brion and Trotanoy as the only 100-pointers. They weren’t alone in their lavish praise for this incredible bottling. Galloni called it “wonderfully exuberant right out the gate” and with “tremendous breadth and power” in his 98-point review. Wine Enthusiast also gave it a 98 with a ‘Cellar Selection’ designate and called the wine, “powerful and dense”.
This champagne is so good, it’s often a staple on the wine lists of Michelin two and three star restaurants. It offers elegant aromatics, pristine fruit and the crisp, mineral finish that screams for food. We loved it so much, we asked Jacques Diebolt to bottle a special cuveé for the restaurant– and he happily agreed!
