    Wehlener Sonnenuhr ranks as one of the greatest places in the world to grow Riesling. An undisputed Grand Cru, the impossibly steep vineyard’s 400 million year-old blue slate soil yields some of the most elegant and prized Rieslings in the world. No wine from a Grand Cru vineyard with such a noble and magnificent history as Wehlener deserves the fate of $12. It’s sort of like seeing a bat swung by Ted Williams auction for the same price as a Big Mac. But my business is to sell Riesling and this deal presented a rare...

    Arianna Occhipinti is without doubt one of the world’s most exciting and frighteningly talented winemakers. Inspired by a visit to Italy’s largest wine fair with her winemaking uncle Giusto (of Sicilian star producer COS) when she was 16, she enrolled in winemaking school at 18, and released her first vintage in 2006, made from one hectare of vines essentially in the family’s back yard- aged 21. Since then she’s made waves. She’s generally considered to make ‘natural’ wines, but as you’ll read below, it’s a little more complicated than that. What is straightforward however, is that her wines are ridiculously delicious and...

    Castello di Monsanto, a Tuscan standard and our mainstay choice for classy, approachable Chianti, just scored a huge 94 point acclaim for their 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva. We’re not surprised. 2014 is a vastly underappreciated vintage in Italy and in the hands of Monsanto, one of Tuscany’s specialist for structure and finesse, brilliantly capitalized on the vintage’s strengths. Love Chianti? Don’t miss this instant classic. The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva is another stellar wine from Monsanto. Here the flavors are dark and...

In 1990, Shari and Garen Staglin, owners of Rutherford’s renowned Staglin estate were on a surefire path to success. Sales were great. The press even better.

    The wine world has justifiably gone head over heels for the 2015 Northern Rhône wines. Flesh, structure, terroir and balance are all present in seductive wines that are in for the long haul. Demand for the wines has vastly outstripped supply and wines that we once cavalierly offered when we felt like it have been tightly allocated. Producers like Guillaume Gilles in Cornas, Levet and Rostaing in Côte Rôtie, which always had their followings, have suddenly become very seriously clamped down on. The world wants...

Ripe, rich, intense, and yet … it still tastes like Cab! Jump in with both feet!!! Look, BBQ season is upon us and you’re going to need some broad shouldered, sturdy wines with rich fruit. There’s a lot of wine in the world satisfying these demands, but relatively few which deliver the goods with any sort of balance, typicity or, dare I say it, class. Of course, when you limit it to wines under $13, well, that’s a rare...

    Burgundy madness has inspired something of a crisis for wine lovers in recent years. Small quantities and enormous demand has driven prices through the roof, making even humble Bourgogne appellations wines quite expensive. From well regarded growers, it is not uncommon to see wines at this entry level sell for well over $30 and sometimes even $40 or $50.

Juicy, sweet fruits in a medium bodied package, bristling with energy and begging for another glass before even finishing the first one. It is THE PERFECT early summer wine.

    I am picky when it comes to Brunello. Too many are about overwhelming power and intensity, as if sheer size and scale should force the wine drinker into submission and admit, however, reluctantly, that, yes, indeed, Brunello is great. However, Sangiovese is not a grape that is all about power.The best of them have a threadline of finesse, elegance and subtlety that the greatest wines in the world all share. Fuligni and Costanti are two producers that underscore this style.

    We were lucky to be visited by Etienne de Montille last week and taste through a selection of some of the 2015s. Yes, it was special to taste through what are truly special wines, but it as even more special to hear about the Domaine - its history, present and future - from Etienne himself. The de Montille family is Burgundy royalty - even if they never made another bottle of wine. The history of this prominent family figures quite large in the history of Burgundy.

    While Château Marsau sits in the not very widely known right bank appellation of Côtes de Francs, the Petrus comparison isn’t just hyperbole. Marsau’s vineyards are atop a clay outcrop, with 12 hectares of thirty five year old vines including a portion on the precious and rare ‘blue clay’ that appears in Petrus and almost nowhere else. We tasted their 2015 during our week in Bordeaux tasting the 2017s from barrel, and we were blown away by it. While it’s a small production wine, we managed to dig ourselves up a healthy parcel at a hot price, for good measure including half bottles and magnums.

    “Elegant, fresh, energetic and super-transparent to the underlying terroir”: 2016 Joseph Drouhin Drouhin, alongside Jadot, Bouchard P&F, and Faiveley, represents the pinnacle of production quality at the négociant end of the spectrum. This is largely because all of these négociants own a significant number of the vineyards they produce. All of them, in many ways, should be thought of as very large Domaines, rather than négociants. In fact, when you begin to look at the numbers, often one or two cuvées skews our perception of their status. For example, Drouhin produces about 3 million bottles a year. Almost 1.5 million...
