Château du Moulin-à-Vent
La Rochelle, Moulin-à-Vent – 2016

JancisRobinson.com
17/20 points

Greyish crimson. Peppery freshness and elegance. The oak much less marked than on the Champs de Cour. Peppery freshness. Really delicate and refined dark rocky fruit. Long, fresh, dry finish. Scented in a lovely dry, dark way.

Ygnacia Pinot Noir, Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley – 2016

vinous
94+ Points

The 2016 Pinot Noir Ygnacia Hyde Vineyard is a more than worthy follow up to the stunning 2015. Lavender, rose petal, orange peel and mint lift from the glass in a silky, weightless Pinot Noir loaded with personality and sheer class. The 2016 possesses striking inner sweetness and exceptional balance from start to finish. These vines were planted only in 2010 with seven ma

Domaine du Roc des Boutires
Pouilly-Fuissé – 2016

JancisRobinson.com
16.5/20 points

They have 4.8 ha (nearly 12 acres) and lots of small parcels, from 210 to 400 m, so they are blended. 80% fermented in tank and 20% in barrel. And one barrel was new. Smells more oaky and mealy than the Mâcon-Solutré 2016. More spicy. But on the palate, lots of bright pure citrus. Rich and creamy. A slight grip extends the length and heightens the freshness.

Domaine du Roc des Boutires
Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières – 2016

17/20 Points

Set to become a premier cru. One parcel dates back to 1945. Quite a lot of clay with the limestone. Barrel fermented, 20% new oak. More fragrant and cedary than the village Pouilly-Fuissé 2016. Very inviting. Creamy but elegant, the oak very subtle. Dry, gently chewy, pure precise citrus. There’s mealy richness but great tension. Very direct, and has eaten the oak. Tense,

Domaine Laroche
Chablis Saint Martin – 2017

Gentle aromas of lemon and apple pick up a stony element as this white builds on the palate. Rich, yet backed by a vibrant structure, ending with a lemon note and a chalky feel on the finish. Drink now through 2023.

Cuvée Violette, Cabernet Franc-Cabernet Sauvignon, Anjou AOC – 2015

Wine Spectator
91 Points

A bit tight and grippy, but has a beautiful flavor profile ranging from blackberry and cassis flavors to olive, bay leaf and tobacco notes. Loamy earth details emerge midpalate, as well as the fresh acidity, which provides balance and support. Give this some time to integrate. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Schramsberg Vineyards
J. Schram Rosé, North Coast – 2010

Wine Enthusiast
95 Points

Mellow and luxurious, this complex and complete sparkling wine exudes aromas of ginger and cinnamon, while flavors of peach, apricot and persimmon fill the mouth and linger nicely on the finish. It has tiny, slow bubbles and matches a sense of energy from acidity with the richness from long aging in the winery’s caves.

Schramsberg Vineyards
Brut Rosé, North Coast – 2016

Town&Country

Heidi Turzyn, wine director at New York's Gotham Bar and Grill, says she always begins her Easter celebrations with a sparkling rosé. "One of my go-tos is Schramsberg Vineyards' North Coast Brut Rosé. I enjoy the balance of the fruit and acidity. The touch of oak makes it a nice pairing with hard-boiled eggs. If you wanted to take it up a notch add some caviar...

Domaine du Roc des Boutires
Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières – 2016

VinePair
B+

Coming from the heart of this AOC in the alkaline clay soils of Pouilly this wine is elegant with some frilled edges that are unmistakably Maconnais. The nose opens with a whiff of butterscotch and pear, playing with a little bit of citrus (tangerine?) and a hint of banana. On the palate these all carry over with added notes of the sweeter side of acacia and dried coconut.

Chablis Grand Cru Les Blanchots – 2016

VinePair
A-

Kimmeridgian, a mixture of clay, chalk and oyster shells, is one of the most advantageous soil compositions for Chardonnay on the planet, it’s also the soil this grape was born in. The Grand Cru designation for Burgundy represents the best sites and in Chablis, where oak is most often used only for partial barrel fermentation...

Castello di Volpaia
Chianti Classico DOCG – 2016

VinePair
B+

Even though this wine has some Merlot in it, it feels like an old school Chianti, with cherry bark (when the soil and cherry aromas fold into each other) and only a hint of the signature violet note, making room for richer aromas of baking spices like nutmeg and anise with a nice cured leather and tobacco note...

Lithe, with concentrated white fruit and spice flavors, supported by fresh acidity. Ripe melon notes emerge midpalate, followed by a long, cream-filled finish that has some taut savory touches. Drink now through 2025.

Val di Suga
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG – 2013

92 Points

Good medium red-ruby. Musky aromas of ripe red cherry, spicy dark plum, tobacco, cedar and menthol. Then lively and perfumed but tight on the palate, showing lovely energy and focus to the flavors of cherry, spices and cedar. Finishes long, clean and youthfully imploded, with a firm tannic spine and enough fruit to stand the test of time. Lovely classic Brunello.

Good full red. Musky and mineral accents complicate the aromas of raspberry, flint and violet on the enticing nose. A step up in refinement and precision from Poggio al Granchio, with a thrilling silky texture to the tactile flavors of raspberry, red cherry, crushed stone and cinnamon. Wonderfully pure, boasting very fine tannins and lingering sweetness...

Medium red. Musky red berries, red cherry and flowers on the nose, complicated by menthol and herbs. Sweet, fleshy and round on entry, in a rather open, appealing style. Rising tannins provide a slightly drying mouthcoating sensation. Finishes with good energy and sneaky subtle persistence.

One of three single-vineyard expressions from Val di Suga, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio al Granchio opens to a nicely saturated color and beautifully intense aromas. Fruit is sourced from a site located in the southeast quadrant of Montalcino where steep diurnal shifts help to sharpen and maximize those pretty fruit aromas...

Made with easy-ripening fruit from the sunny southwest quadrant of the appellation, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Spuntali is a charming and fruit-forward expression. This wine is softer and more accessible than the other two single-vineyard expressions I tasted from Val di Suga. The fruit is dark and saturated with summer cherry, plum, spice and tobacco...
