Plush and warm in feel, with melted black licorice, fruitcake and ganache notes holding sway over the fleshy core of plum and blackberry confiture flavors. A singed alder hint through the finish gives this a pleasant hint of rusticity.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Puligny-Montrachet Folatières Premier Cru 2015
March 31, 2018 94 Points Wine Spectator

Lemon, floral and spice flavors are framed by toasty oak and underscored by vibrant acidity in this sleek white. Hints of bread dough and pastry emerge as this glides to a long toast-and-pastry aftertaste.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne Domaine Duc de Magenta 2015
March 31, 2018 93 Points Wine Spectator

Though tightly wound, this elegant white shows harmony between the lemon pie, pastry, toast and baking spice notes. Turns toastier on the long finish, but has both intensity and length.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Boudots Premier Cru 2015
March 31, 2018 93 Points Wine Spectator

A beam of pure cherry and currant bisects this fresh red, which delivers mineral, spice and light vegetal accents that add depth. This has tension and finishes on the compact side, where it feels more aerial.

This is rich and smoky, with a core of black cherry, black currant and spice flavors. There is a firm backbone, and a mineral element emerges on the savory finish.

Ripe red berries, cola, chocolate, florals and a meaty baseline shine through on both the nose and the palate. This is juicy and fruity, with silky smooth tannins, a savory backbone and and an easy-going elegance. Simultaneously glug worthy and serious.

Cranberry, hibiscus and rosewater converge on the soft, plush nose of this bottling, which also shows hints of star anise and baked goods. It's a light and playful wine on the sip, where juicy raspberries meet with gravelly minerality. This is light, fresh and full of long, simmering acidity.

An impenetrable, teeth-staining purple, the 2014 Le Sol is calling out for a cozy sweater and a fireplace. Intense woodsy aromas of cedar, pine needles, blackberry jam, medicinal herbs and smoky undertones lead into a palate that's herbal, juicy-fruited and framed by powerful, chewy tannins.

Zind-Humbrecht Zind 2015
March 01, 2018 90 Points Decanter

Year in, year out, this blend of 65% Chardonnay and 35% Auxerrois always delivers. From grapes that are now 25 years old and farmed organically and biodynamically, this shows gentle tropical, floral and grapefruit notes. Precise and pure lovely weighty texture and underlying minerality.

February 28, 2018 98 Points Wine Spectator

Gorgeous from the get-go, with toasted sesame, green tea, walnut husk, pistachio cream and peanut toffee notes seamlessly layered atop one another, framed by a subtle singed alder hint. Everything glides with grace through the finish like a gently wafting plume of smoke off burning incense.
