Louis Jadot Mâconnais and Beaujolais Wines Beaujolais-Villages 2019
March 01, 2021 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

This dense and fruity wine was made by Burgundy negociant Louis Jadot. Rich cherry fruits have a balance between dry tannins and juicy fruitiness.

Château La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2018
March 01, 2021 92 Points Wine Enthusiast

Zesty bites of pineapple and grapefruit are softened by skeins of cream and honey in this blend of equal parts Grenache Blanc and Roussanne augmented by Clairette and Bourboulenc. It's plush and creamy on the palate but accented by hints of salt and smoked nuts

Château La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2017
March 01, 2021 95 Points Wine Enthusiast

Ripe, luminous wild strawberries and black cherry flavors explode from nose to finish in this hedonistic, intensely fruity blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. It's gorgeously primary in youth with a zesty mineral undertone, but is concentrated enough to improve.

Whiffs of vanilla and forest floor are rousing on the nose of this robust blend of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. Vinified in large-format oak and matured partially in new barriques, it's slightly woody in its youth but there's a core of crisp stone fruit and citrus flavors that penetrate the palate.

A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Grand and Premier Cru vineyards, this Champagne is impressively rich. Still young, its taut texture and minerality are imbued with elegance as well as freshness.

Coming entirely from Grand Cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, the new release of this famous Champagne is from a top vintage year. The wine is at perfect maturity, poised between crisp, taut minerality and wonderful toastiness. It is intense, beautifully clear and limpid, a great Champagne.

Château La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2019
February 28, 2021 93 Points Wine Spectator

Juicy and fresh, with a creamed yellow apple and melon side contrasted by an inlay of racy star fruit and honeysuckle notes. Long finish lets a lemon curd note in for added range. Lovely.

Sleek in feel, with a mix of raspberry and plum reduction, melted black licorice and fruitcake notes that stretch out over a graphite edge on the finish. Has good energy from start to finish.

January 15, 2021 95 Points - Top 100 Value Wines of 2020 - #25 jamessuckling.com

Enticing roasted spices, peppermint and cocoa powder oozing from the glass, knitting the ripe, lustrous black fruit. Rich and full-bodied, but not jammy. Good density of flavors to chew on with a solid, velvety tannin structure. Lots of verve. Lengthy finish. Serious stuff. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and merlot.

This is a classic vintage of an Italian icon now celebrating its 50th vintage. The Tenuta San Guido 2018 Bolgheri Sassicaia lays out a familiar blueprint that borrows from the proven track record of this landmark estate that extends into the hills just beyond the Tyrrhenian shores of Tuscany. This vintage is crystalline and pure in its delivery, and if you are familiar with previous editions, it is impossible to mistake this wine for anything but Sassicaia.

Lots of sliced-apple, lemon-rind with some flint aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with bright acidity and a clean, vivid finish. Light floral undertones.

Taylor Fladgate 1961 Single Harvest Tawny
January 11, 2021 94 Points VinousMedia.com

Lucid gold on its rim, the 1961 has an intense bouquet that delivers a cornucopia of scents: clove, furniture polish, fig jam, molasses, strawberry and touches of Indian spice. There is a little volatility that merely imparts feistiness. The palate is sweet and viscous on the entry, with honey, vanilla pod, cinnamon and white pepper, later roasted chestnut and tangy orange rind, Chinese 5-spice and Seville orange marmalade. I appreciate the persistency of this Port that packs quite a punch and conveys a sense of joie-de-vivre.

Rich garnet color, toasty plum nose, smooth, sweet plum and spice with notes of chocolate and new oak, balanced and long.

This is one of my favorite non-vintage Bruts, it is bright and lively, crisp and balanced with smooth, exuberant Chardonnay-driven style; racy, elegant and totally charming, long and memorable.

Here we have the house Chardonnay sharing the spotlight equally with Pinot; it’s a richer, more complex wine with lush fruit and layered flavors; deep, intense but also elegant and refined, a beautiful and complete wine.

The 2019 Vermentino is a very pretty and expressive coastal white. Citrus and flowers and a good bit of varietal character all come through nicely, but what impresses me most is the wine’s energy and persistence. This is very nicely done.
