Tenuta di Biserno Biserno
April 01, 2017 94 Points Wine & Spirits

The gravelly sites on the upper hillsides favor cabernet franc, which shines through in leafy tobacco flavors and fine herbal tones. Merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot round out the blend, saturating the wine with flavors of dark chocolate, briny olives and black tea.

Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana IGT 2014
April 01, 2017 92 Points Wine & Spirits

Guidalberto is lively and forward in the 2014 vintage, with scents of fresh rose petals, lavender and sage. The fruit feels just on the right side of ripeness, the tart sour plum and early summer cherry notes buoyed by cool acidity, and trailing notes of fresh tobacco and eucalyptus in their wake.

April 01, 2017 91 Points Wine & Spirits

It smells of violets and fresh thyme, notes that are mirrored on the palate and mingle with the dark berry flavors. Hints of green olive, black tea and tobacco emerge toward the finish.

Le Clos is a 1.7-acre monopole next to the church in Fuissé. The vines face east, and the wine emphasizes freshness in its cool, brisk leanness of structure, its orange tones, even its richer notes of lobster broth.

Maison Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2014
April 01, 2017 91 Points Wine & Spirits

As plump and richly ripe as you would hope a Puligny grand cru would be, this is tightly bound up in its earthiness.

Maison Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Chassagne-Montrachet 2014
April 01, 2017 91 Points Wine & Spirits

Winemaker Frédéric Barnier hit with this vintage of Chassagne, creating a voluptuous cream puff of a wine with a firm, mineral underpinning. Almost flinty in its reduction, the wine pops with freshness, with scents of tangerine, salty briskness and some darker root-vegetable notes adding depth.

Maison Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Chevalier-Montrachet Les Demoiselles Grand Cru 2014
April 01, 2017 96 Points Wine & Spirits

Its succulent pear-like flavor density keeps yielding a gentle complexity with remarkable staying power—nutmeg, orange, vanilla, lemon and mineral salts combine in effortless concentration and lasting savor.

Maison Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Meursault Charmes Premier Cru 2014
April 01, 2017 94 Points Wine & Spirits

Almost addictively thirst quenching, this wine sustains its muscular structure and broad density of fruit under a sense of briskness and drive. The flintiness of reduction merges with the ripe tangerine flavors, yielding scents of honeycomb and flowers with air. This is powerful, bright and downright delicious.

April 01, 2017 90 Points Wine & Spirits

Grown at a vineyard neighboring Folatières, this wine is ambitious in every way, from its complex fruit ripeness to the grip of the oak in which it fermented and aged.

Rich, vibrant and smooth, this red evokes black cherry, black currant and almond flavors, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice.

Tightly wound core flavors of lemon, white flower and apple are enhanced by spice and butterscotch notes in this lush yet savory white, which turns more minerally and chalky on the lingering finish.
