Wine Spectator: Burgundy: Exploring the Côte d’Or and Chablis – Featuring Domaine Laroche

Wine Spectator: Burgundy: Exploring the Côte d’Or and Chablis – Featuring Domaine Laroche

Opening the first seminar of this year’s New York Wine Experience, senior editor Bruce Sanderson turned to a real-estate aphorism: “Location, location, location.” The refrain applies particularly well to Burgundian winemaking: “The entire hierarchy of quality in the region is based on the location of vineyards,” he said. A taste of four grand cru Burgundies awaited the room—two Chardonnays and two Pinot Noirs. Sanderson noted that only 1% of all Burgundy wine is classified as grand cru, the region’s highest quality designation. “In addition to the vineyard and its attributes, the human input is important,” he noted, introducing presenters Albéric Bichot of Albert Bichot,...

Wine Enthusiast: The New Generation of Napa Valley Vintners – Featuring Schramsberg’s Hugh Davies

In 1944, a pioneering group of winemakers sat around a dinner table and came up with a visionary idea to band together. That’s how Napa Valley Vintners was born. In the years since, it’s grown from seven founders to 550 members. In that time, the organization has also created Auction Napa Valley, which has raised $185 million for health and children’s education across the region. Here, multiple generations consider the group’s impact. “I feel tremendous gratitude for the generations of growers and vintners who came before us. They did the heavy lifting, establishing a wine region where there wasn’t one....

Wine Spectator: The Distinctive Crus of Beaujolais – Featuring Château du Moulin-à-Vent

Wine Spectator: The Distinctive Crus of Beaujolais – Featuring Château du Moulin-à-Vent

"Amid Changing Tastes, the region's fresh reds broaden their appeal" As the pendulum of taste swings toward lighter, more elegant wines, Americans are increasingly looking for alternatives to the blockbusters that have been popular for so long. The Gamay-based reds from France's Beaujolais region are an excellent option, full of character and offering great value. The most interesting wines come from the crus, which best display the region's distinctive terroirs. Moulin-à-Vent is arguably the most coveted cru, producing concentrated and ageworthy Gamays. With 1,500 acres under vine, Moulin-à-Vent boasts more than 60 lieux-dits—sites with unique topographic elements—on pink granite soils with seams of manganese....

Forbes: Royal Tokaji: Rediscovering The Wine That Communism Left Behind

Forbes: Royal Tokaji: Rediscovering The Wine That Communism Left Behind

  One of the world’s most legendary and beautiful wines, Tokaji Aszú from Hungary’s Tokaj region, was born of violence. It was a volcanic violence, a rough beginning, as upwards of 400 individual volcanoes erupted on the edge of the Hungarian plain spewing a breathtaking array of mineral ash onto what are now the vineyards of Tokaj. The volcanic debris left behind a happy inheritance for Tokaj, becoming an essential aspect of the terroir. Yet, the rubble of two World Wars and decades of communism left a far more negative legacy—one that the Tokaj region and wineries like Royal Tokaji are slowly...
