The Wine Advocate

The 2017 Chardonnay Banfield Vineyard has a nose of white peaches and baked quince with touches of orange blossom, lemongrass and baker's yeast. The medium-bodied palate offers bright, fresh, perfumed fruit with gentle yeasty touches and a perfumed finish.

Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard, Russian River Valley – 2017

The Wine Advocate
95 Points

The 2017 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is a stunning wine. It offers singular aromas of guava, grapefruit peel and musky hints with layers of tangerine, green herbs, crushed stone and hints of elderflower. The medium-bodied palate is very expressive with kaleidoscopic flavor layers and addicting juiciness, finishing long and ever-changing in the mouth. This is a flamboyant expression that can be drunk immediately or cellared for a few years.

The 2017 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is scented of poached pears, lemon peel, baker's yeast and golden apples with touches of citrus blossom and hazelnut. The palate is light to medium-bodied, silky and fresh with pure fruits and a juicy finish.

Chardonnay, U.V.-El Diablo Vineyard, Russian River Valley – 2017

The Wine Advocate
94+ Points

The 2017 Chardonnay UV - El Diablo Vineyard is slow to open aromatically at this stage, offering glimpses of citrus blossom, honeyed almonds, saline and orange peel with a core of quince, gaining intensity and nuance as it sits in the glass. It explodes in the mouth with savory, concentrated flavor layers, and it's medium-bodied, ultra silky and fresh with a very long, energetic finish. This has great potential to gain depth and nuance in bottle, so forget it in the cellar for a couple of years.

Pinot Noir, Ferrington Vineyard, Anderson Valley – 2017

The Wine Advocate
92 Points

Pale ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Ferrington Vineyard has earthy aromas of dried herbs, damp soil and mushroom powder with notes of graphite, dried flowers and tea leaves over a core of crunchy blackberries and cranberries. The palate is medium-bodied and intensely minerally, with very juicy, fresh fruit character, finishing a tad coiled. Give it more time in bottle.

Pinot Noir, Lucky Well, Russian River Valley – 2017

The Wine Advocate
95 Points

Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir UV Lucky Well Vineyard offers aromas of charcuterie, raspberries and blackberries with accents of tangerine, potpourri and floral perfume. Medium-bodied and silky, it has concentrated, perfumed red berry fruits in the mouth with a firm, grainy frame and addicting freshness, gaining even more perfume and flesh through the long finish. Lovely! It will benefit from another 2-3 years in bottle.

Biondi-Santi
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva – 2012

jamessuckling.com
96 Points

A glorious nose to the wine with blackberries, plums, balsamic, mushrooms and bark. Floral. Some tile and terracotta undertones. Full-bodied with fine tannins and vivid, linear acidity running through the middle palate. Light toffee and smoke. Extremely long and lively. Traditional, yet very clean and beautiful. Drinkable now, but better after 2025.

Mandorlo Dolcetto d’Alba DOC – 2019

The Wine Advocate
90 Points

The Elvio Cogno 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba Mandorlo is a beautifully fragrant expression of the grape, with impressive purity and focus. Dark cherry and fresh blueberry are followed by crushed limestone or white stone. The wine is only aged in stainless steel, and the vineyards see calcareous-rich soils. The wine is lean, almost mid-weight in terms of density, but it shows the simple balance and harmony to pair with Ascoli olives, or olive ascolana, that are fried and stuffed with minced pork and bread crumbs. Some 10,000 bottles were released.

Anas-Cëtta Nascetta di Novello Langhe DOC – 2019

The Wine Advocate
92 Points

A wine that always turns heads, the Elvio Cogno 2019 Langhe Nascetta del Comune di Novello Anas-Cëtta is a mid-weight, glycerin-rich white made from an indigenous grape that is rare and dear to the region of Langa. There are aspects of this wine that remind me of the Arneis grape (another local favorite). The wine's smooth and creamy mouthfeel is one element shared between the two. So are those aromas of honey, white peach, pear and acacia flower. Aged in both stainless steel and botte grande, this wine has the textural richness to pair with white meat and even a few red meat dishes. An ample

Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG – 2016

The Wine Advocate
94 Points

Of the four Elvio Cogno Baroli out on the market now, this wine is the most immediate and accessible of the bunch. Production is an ample 20,000 bottles. The 2016 Barolo Cascina Nuova is a terrific wine with impeccable balance. The bouquet offers dark fruit aromas, licorice, smoke, tar and spice. These aromatic pieces slide together with precision to create an intriguing and multifaceted puzzle. It shows good fruit weight and concentration, reinforced by firm tannins, freshness and a silky mouthfeel. This is a terrific go-to Barolo from a classic vintage. The wine is fermented in stainless ste

Ravera Barolo DOCG – 2016

The Wine Advocate
97+ Points

Of the many great contributions made by the winemaking team at Elvio Cogno, perhaps the greatest is the importance they brought to the Ravera cru of Novello. Little-known before their efforts, this vineyard has risen in high regard in recent years and continues to show impressive potential. The 2016 Barolo Ravera offers an important education in why this site deserves the spotlight. The wine shows terrific balance and depth, with rich fruit aromas framed by smoke, tar, ferrous earth and tangy licorice. The tannins are softly contoured, and the wine moves over the palate with profound length. I

Bricco Pernice Barolo DOCG – 2015

The Wine Advocate
96 Points

The Elvio Cogno 2015 Barolo Ravera Bricco Pernice delivers the depth, richness and concentration that are a hallmark of this pretty vintage. This wine is a pure expression of the productive Lampia clone of Nebbiolo. Generous layers of blackberry, wild cherry, rose hip, ferrous earth and campfire ash are neatly folded together to build the wine's intensity. Like the other wines from this estate, the tannic management is spot-on. You are aware of the wine's youthful structure, but it is delivered without hard edges or sharp points. A mere 4,000 bottles were produced.

Vigna Elena Barolo Riserva DOCG – 2014

The Wine Advocate
96+ Points

The Elvio Cogno portfolio concludes with the special 2014 Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena. This wine from the cooler 2014 vintage stands far apart from the other new releases from the 2015 and 2016 vintages also hitting the market at this time. Ephemeral, fragile and delicate, the wine shows a softer caliber of fruit, with wild berry, cassis, smoke, tar and powdered licorice. There are earthy notes at the back with truffle essence and forest floor. This vintage offers a heightened level of complexity and nuance. This wine is a pure expression of the Rosé clone of Nebbiolo that is known for i

Château Gassier
Esprit Gassier, Côtes de Provence – 2019

Wine & Spirits
90 Points

Esprit comes from the vineyards at the foot of Mount Sainte Victoire. A blend of grenache, cinsault, syrah and rolle, it offers more flavor than the pale pink color predicts: Bright, limey acidity and wild-strawberry notes are underlined by the savor of wet stone and garrigue. It’s ready to pair with an herb omelet.

Vivid, bright fruit with strawberries, flowers and orange peel on the nose. Full-bodied, round and tannic, yet there’s lots of fresh, ripe fruit with some citrus undertones. Needs two or three years to soften. Better after 2023.

Enticing scents of rose, iris, perfumed berry and an earthy whiff of truffle shape the fragrant nose on this dazzling wine. The delicious, full-bodied palate boasts structure and a weightless elegance, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, cherry compote, cinnamon and star anise. Taut polished tannins and fresh acidity provide balance and an elegant structure. It's already irresistible but will also age well for years. Drink 2022–2035.
