2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

100 points James Suckling: "Disgorged October 2016 and will be the first Cristal to be released ten years from harvest when it is offered in 2018. 35 parcels used from a possible 45 in this vintage. The assemblage is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This is so fresh and tense and mineral with extremely exuberant chardonnay notes on the nose of white peach, lemon and yellow grapefruit, and hints of almost brambly sous bois aromas. The yeast characters are also super fresh, and there are subtle woody notes, with a hint of vanilla bean and light spices. The palate is super long, and ...Read More »

2006 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2006 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja

Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. As with many of the best Riojas, this wine is quite delicious right now if you want to drink some bottles wh... Read More »

2008 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace

96 points Decanter: "This prestige cuvée is named after the man who started this Alsace wine dynasty, now in the hands of the 13th generation. Always a near-peerless Riesling, this new release is bone dry, structured and elegant, with savoury, nutty, autumnal notes and tangy citrus acidity. It's poised, powerful, complex and concentrated, with a seam of brisk yuzu-like acidity to complement the creamy nougat notes. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030.

2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "Already a bit of evolution on the nose! Sweet, Earl Grey tea character. Mild and with sufficient gentle fruit on the mid palate though pretty chewy on the finish. Pretty low key. 16/20" (4/2008) K&L Notes: Château Malescasse is an historic property ideally situated on gravel soils close to the Gironde River just north of Margaux. While it is true that 2007 will never have the power or authority of the finest vintages of the decade, the best wines display a remarkable ripeness and an admirable richness of texture.

It is in a crisp style, tight with acidity, finishing taut and mineral. Drink from 2019.

It's sourced from vines grown at high altitude (for Penedès), 800 meters, from 30-year-old plants kept in contact with the lees for no less than 15 months.

It is a very pale blend of Xarello with 40% Pinot Noir that matured in bottle with the lees no less than 42 months. This time they told me it was white, but I'd say it's still a Rosé.

97 points Decanter: "This is the current and latest vintage release from Krug, and is a fitting successor to 2002, though it's very different in style - unusually, the blend contains more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir. Despite this, it is hallmark Krug with its oxidative profile. It has a luminous freshness and good density without heaviness. There’s a controlled power to this poised, vinous, linear 2004, displaying candied fruits, minerals, gingerbread, white chocolate, caramel and marzipan. This has a long, dry autolytic finish, great balance and lovely bead. Disgorged just a ...Read More »

1997 Suduiraut, Sauternes

92 points John Gilman: "The 1997 Suduiraut has reached a really lovely plateau in its evolution and is drinking splendidly at age twelve. The bouquet is deep, pure and shows lovely secondary layers of complexity in its mélange of honey, fresh apricot, oranges, crème brulée, soil tones and a gentle framing of buttery oak. With air distinctive notes of clove and marmalade blossomed as well on the nose. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and focused, with a fine core of fruit, lovely, zesty acidity and impressive length and grip on the à point finish. Just a lovely, class ...Read More »

2008 Veuve Clicquot "Gold Label Reserve" Brut Champagne

93 points James Suckling: "Attractive creamy pastry notes and pithy lemon citrus fruits on offer here. There's also a gently nutty edge of autolysis, all locked in nice and fresh here. The palate's bright, crisp and has attractive fresh lemon and peach-fruit flavours. It's a really tidy and more chiselled vintage for this wine." (8/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very elegant, this is chiseled by racy acidity that's swathed in the refined, creamy mousse and flavors of crème de cassis, preserved lemon, biscuit and dried apricot. Long and lacy on the smoke-tinged, minerally finish. (AN, Web-2016)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Assembling 35% ...Read More »

2012 Streicker "Ironstone Block" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $35)

96 points James Halliday: "Shows its oak, no two ways about it, but the length of flavour here is exceptional. The fruit tastes of white peach, pineapple and nashi pear; the oak of cream and smoky cedar wood. It all combines to power on through the finish in blazing style. *Special Value Selection*" (8/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "Here is a Chardonnay that delivers lots of depth and intensity. Full-bodied, layered and gorgeous. Super wine. Great vintage. Screw cap." (3/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "On first taste, this wine shows mouth-puckering acidity. But after some time in glass it chills out and the flinty, toasty, mineral no ...Read More »

1990 Bel Air Lagrave, Moulis (1.5L)

Family owned for over 150 years, Bel Air Lagrave is a highly respected Bordeaux estate in Moulis. Classic in style, and emphasizing elegance and purity of fruit, this predominately Cabernet wine (with a good portion of Merlot and a bit of Petit Verdot), generally spends nearly 20 months in oak, some neutral and anywhere from 35 - 50% new depending on the nature of the vintage. Though mature, the wine has preserved fruit, energy and balanced nuance of both freshness and elegance. Textural, medium-bodied, evolved and expressive Bordeaux that won't set your... Read More »

(JS, Web Only-2003)" (3/2003) K&L Notes: Cabernet Sauvignon 57%, Merlot 31%, Cabernet Franc 7.5%, Petit Verdot 3% and Malbec 1.5%.

2002 Lanson "Gold Label" Vintage Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Balanced and delicious, this is rich, full in the mouth, packed with both white and citrus fruits and with secondary flavors of almonds, toast and baked bread. It is poised generously between the fresh and mature ... (RV)" (12/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Intense aromas of Meyer lemon, pear skin, honeysuckle, toasty lees and iodine, with a bright mineral quality adding lift and focus. Rich yet lively and precise, offering an array of fresh citrus and orchard fruit flavors that fill out and deepen with air. Closes on a smoky note, with excellent clarity and length a ...Read More »

2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne

99 points James Suckling: "A mind-blowing wine. This is super subtle and intense with aromas of peaches, light strawberry and cream. Also shows rose petal and cooked peaches. Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins that feel like fine silk. The finish goes on for minutes. It floats across the palate. The winemaker says the closet vintage to this is the 1990, but I think this is better." (10/2017) 95 points Vinous: "The 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is intriguing, complex and multi-faceted. Brisk and refreshing, with a slightly herbal (but not unpleasant character), the 2005 is superb today. Over time, t ...Read More »

2013 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the latest release Chardonnays, the 2013 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is a screaming effort that got a few wows in the notes. More ripe and rounded than the Alpine Vineyard (at the moment anyways, as Kevin commented that this cuvee continues to pick up more and more focus with bottle age), its light/medium gold color is followed by tons of ripe white peach and orchard fruits, toasted nuts, crushed rock and white flowers. Rounded, concentrated and rich on the palate, yet with vibrant underlying acidity that cuts through the finish, give it ...Read More »
