2011 Jean Max Roger "Cuveé C.M." Sancerre
Review Date: 5-29-2014
While the Jean-Max Roger wines are just gaining notoriety here in the U.S., over in France they have somewhat more of a cult following. The Roger family comes from a long lineage of winemakers dating back into the early 17th century. The estate is now run by Jean-Max and two of his three sons. The wines they craft are all together different and very much the same as the big names you may be familiar with. They have all of the wonderful expressions of terroir and verve that you would expect but, without being flashy, in your face or, over the top. I love the fact that these wines are chalk full of complexity and drive all the while being understated and classy.

2012 Mönchhof Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett
Review Date: 2-13-2014
I have been a huge fan of the wines from the Mönchhof estate for many many years now. And, over the years they have happily become one of my “go to wines”. They are always fashioned in a way which is unpretentious and stylistically spot on. The 2012 Wurzgarten Kabinett is tasty, tasty, tasty… full of spice and uplifting minerality on the nose and a precise combination of texture, linear definition and juicy finish. Although this is easily chuggable right now this will cellar very nicely over the next 10+ years. (Eric Story, German Buyer)
