Vouette & Sorbée Champagne Extra Brut Blanc d'Argile (Wine Review)

This chardonnay Champagne is fermented in 400-liter barrels, where it rests until spring when malolactic is complete. The microflora have their way with the wine, giving the impression of limestone soil in full bloom. It has the scent of just-picked fruit, the fragrance of an apple at peak autumn...Read Full Story

Lioco 2011 Sonoma County Chardonnay (Wine Review)

This wine achieves textural complexities in its fruit, gaining depth and voluptuous richness with flavors of peach and nectarine in a pale earthen whiteness. An integral structure keeps all that fatness in check, with complexities of its own, from crisp apple and tangerine pith layers of acidity to seashell,...Read Full Story

Marcel Lapierre 2011 Morgon (Wine Review)

Here's what a great Morgon should taste like: tart red fruit that lasts for minutes, bringing in dark scents of freshly turned earth, cured meat and blackberries, brightening to floral scents of roses. This offers zesty intensity out of a tight, austere structure. Lapierre's Morgon has a track record...Read Full Story

Pewsey Vale 2007 Eden Valley The Contours Museum Reserve Riesling (Wine Review)

Louisa Rose holds back the best of her Eden Valley riesling for late release, when it's just beginning to open. At six years of age, this is showing some evolution in its golden color and rich aroma, but it's still young, taking a day to show its true breadth....Read Full Story

This is concentrated, brisk cabernet, the flavors focused on cassis and blackberry with coolness that drives the...Read Full Story

Giant Steps 2012 Yarra Valley Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir (Wine Review)

Whole-cluster fermentation gives this pinot scents of juniper and woodland spice, along with delicate fruit and earth details that make the wine seductive. There's dense fruit concentration, but it's handled with a graceful touch, the tannins an essence of flavor. If you don't believe Australia can produce compelling pinot...Read Full Story

Hanzell 2010 Sonoma Valley Chardonnay (Wine Review)

After his travels to Europe to implement the Marshall Plan, and later as Ambassador to Italy, James Zellerbach's interest in Burgundy led him to plant chardonnay and pinot noir in the hills above Sonoma in 1953. The vineyard, now expanded to 44 acres, rises from 430 to 820 feet. It still includes that...Read Full Story

Pere Ventura Cava Tresor Rosé (Wine Review)

A light pink trepat, this is herbal and foresty in its red fruit flavors. As it opens with air, the finish takes on a mineral complexity that's compelling against the cherry marmalade fruit. Substantial enough for morçilla with white beans, or other meaty tapas.
