2016 Lucien Lardy Morgon "Cote du Py"
Review Date: 04-19-2018
A stunning Morgon, the 2016 Lucien Lardy Morgon "Cote du Py" is a great example of the quality of the 2016 Beaujolais vintage. More classic than 2015 with cooler, wetter weather the 2016s are fresher and more lively than the rich and powerful 2015s. The 2016 is loaded with sexy aromas of black plum and spice while the palate is an intoxicating mixture of black fruits, plum and baking spices. The wine finish with excellent lift and stays on the palate for almost a minute after the last sip fades away.

2016 Lucien Lardy Moulin-à-Vent "Les Thorins"
Review Date: 04-19-2018
If there is any village in Beaujolais that could pass for Burgundian in style it is Moulin-a-Vent. A beautiful nose of fresh cranberry, rose hips, spice and morning dew leap from the glass. On the palate this beauty exudes delicate red fruit flavors as well as spice and mineral notes. Great body and lift carry this wine all the way thru to the finish which reveals a surprisingly weighty wine. This wine could easily pass for a fine village-level Burgundy.

2015 Lucien Lardy Fleurie "Les Chenes"
Review Date: 04-19-2018
So fresh and bright on the nose with red plum, spice and subtle floral aromas. The red fruits in this wine just ooze across the palate and go from plum-to-berry-to-orchard fruit flavors. Great acidity and zippy mineral notes round out this brilliant offering.

2014 Schlumberger Saering Riesling Grand Cru Alsace
Review Date: 04-19-2018
Wow! This is a very impressive Riesling, from the very first sniff of the glass I knew I had something very special. A vibrant nose of beeswax, stone fruit, orange oil and petrol jump from the glass. On the palate the wines has depth, complexity and unfurls across the palate to reveal pithy orchard fruits and crunchy mineral notes. If you're in search of a fantastic Grand Cru Riesling that won't break the bank this is the wine for you.

Review Date: 04-05-2018
Domaine Frederic Esmonin continues their streak of producing wines that punch way above their price-point with the 2016 Domaine Frederic Esmonin Gevrey Chambertin Clos Prieur.

Great precision and vibrancy this showcases everything there is to love about the 2016 vintage: precision, red fruits, vibrancy and elegance.

2015 Domaine Calendal "Plan de Dieu" Côtes du Rhône-Villages
Review Date: 04-04-2018
An electric nose of red fruits, spice and crushed volcanic rock burst from the glass. The palate is an array of red plum, berry, clove and crunchy tannins. Bright and lively with tons of fruit this full-bodied masterpiece punches way above its price and appellation and if tasted blind could easily be mistaken for a Chateauneuf-du-Pape!

2015 Domaine Lafage "Tessellae - Old Vines GSM" Côtes du Roussillon
Review Date: 01-29-2018
This is my favorite Lafage release to date! The 2015 Tessellae Old Vines GSM has a hauntingly beautiful nose of red cherries, licorice, white pepper and garrigue. On the palate the wine is fresh and lively with great energy and drive. There is copious fruit notes as well as spice with a layered and complex palate. The wine shows excellent integration of its tannins, fruit and alcohol which gives this full-bodied wine a deceptively light on its feet feel.

2016 Domaine Frédéric Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Estournelles St-Jacques"
Review Date: 01-22-2018
I love this wine, especially for the price! This has everything you could ever want in a top-flight 1er cru Burgundy. The nose is alive with notes of bright red berry, spice and that tell-tale cola note all fine Gevrey-Chambertins have. Layer after layer of complex fruit notes mingle with spice and earth notes to create a breathtaking Gevrey-Chambertin. There's a powerful core of fruit, tannin and acidity here and even though this is showing well now, I have to believe we are still just scratching the surface of what this wine will eventually reveal. A great showing for one of the first 2016s to reach our shelves.

2016 Domaine Frédéric Esmonin Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Review Date: 01-22-2018
While the 2016 Mazy is a bit more feminine the 2016 Esmonin Ruchottes Chambertin is definitely masculine in style. Notes of black fruits, spice and even a slight graphite note pepper the nose of this wine while on the palate there is ample weight and delineation. Baking spice and dark fruits meld with a coiled palate and firm tannins. A big wine that definitely needs time to completely unfurl.

Review Date: 01-22-2018
What a beautiful wine! The 2016 Esmonin Mazy Chambertin displays all the beauty and elegance the 2016 vintage is supposed to have. A gorgeous nose of red berries, red flowers and subtle spice notes gives way to a palate that is full of red berry fruit(cranberry, strawberry, pomegranate and raspberry). Fantastic balance, superb complexity and great persistence make this a great introduction to the wonderful 2016 Burgundy vintage.

2015 Domaine de Marcoux Lirac "Lorentine"
Review Date: 01-22-2018
Gorgeous blackberry notes mingle seamlessly with spice and scorched earth nuances. The palate is dark berry, minced meat pie, black pepper and dried herbs. A serious wine that slowly unfurls to reveal the depths of complexity and layers of dark fruit this is a big red that showcases the power and richness that are the hallmarks of the 2015 Rhone vintage.

2016 Domaine de Marcoux Cotes-du-Rhone
Review Date: 01-22-2018
If you're a fan of Marcoux then you are definitely in for a treat with the 2016 Marcoux Cotes du Rhone. This wine starts off with an intoxicating nose of red licorice and candied red raspberries and then deftly pivots to fresh flower and earth notes. There's a distinctly Burgundian feel here with high-toned red fruits, remarkable balance and harmony and an elegance rarely found in a Cotes du Rhone. The wine finish with impressive purity and freshness and it lingers ever so slightly on the delightful finish. This is a must buy for any wine lover who is a fan of Grenache done the right way.

If you want a little insight into how fantastic the upcoming 2016 Rhone vintage is going to be just pick up a bottle of the 2016 Rhone by Roger Sabon. Loaded with a bevy of dark berry fruit and spice notes this complex, layered beauty boasts a silky-smooth palate that displays remarkable persistence and length.

2016 Pala "I Fiori" Cannonau di Sardegna
Review Date: 01-02-2018
Wow! This is a sexy beast of a wine. Lots of wild berry fruit, seductive aromas and silky tannins make this an irresistible offering. I had to do a double-take when I saw the price, I easily expected this to be in the mid-to-high 20s but was pleasantly surprised to see it at the jaw-dropping price of only $14.99. A flat-out delicious offering for under $15 this is a wine to buy b y the case.

2015 Chateau Los Boldos "Grande Reserve" Cachapoal Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 01-02-2018
I love this wine! It has everything I look for: depth, precision, balance, complexity and most importantly it tastes really good. Chile is one of the many regions around the world where you get great bang for your buck and the 2015 Chateau Los Boldos Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect example. A suave nose of mint, earth and dried herbs deftly gives way to a palate that just oozes gorgeous dark berry fruit, spice, subtle mocha notes and a touch of earth and herbs. This is a wonderful, food friendly Cabernet Sauvignon that totally over delivers given its modest price.

2016 Delas Freres "Saint-Esprit" Côtes du Rhône Rouge

If the incredible quality of the 2016 Delas Freres "St. Esprit" Cotes du Rhone is indicative of what you can expect from Southern Rhone in 2016-Hold onto your hats!! For under $10 I do not think there is a better value at K&L currently. This is a beautiful red wine with gorgeous aromas of red fruits, spice and mineral notes. On the palate there is a cool rush of red berry, mocha, chocolate nuances and a hit of earth. The acidity is present s well as firm tannins and admirable structure. A great value this wine is destined to be your new everyday house red.

2013 Farella Estate Coombsville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 12-02-2017
This is exactly what I want from a top-flight Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The Coombsville AVA has stepped up its quality immensely over the last few vintages and now many of their releases are dollar-for-dollar the best values in all of Napa Valley. The Farella Estate Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with dark chocolate and blackberry kirsch notes along with mocha and espresso flavors this creamy, richly-textured beauty is a hedonist's delight.

2016 Domaine Lafage "Novellum" Chardonnay Pays d'Oc
Review Date: 11-17-2017
Easily one of the best white wine values I have tasted this year, the 2016 Domaine Lafage Novellum is the epitome of what the Languedoc/Roussillon is capable of producing. This rich, textured and complex white is layered in tropical fruit notes and baked apple flavors. The wine unfolds with a seamless feel as fruit note after fruit note blends with soft oak nuances. This is an outstanding value that pretty much blows away anything from California that is even remotely close to its price.

The Lafage Bastide Miraflors is a perennial favorite of mine and the 2015 is easily the best Bastide Miraflors to date! The starts out with a gorgeous nose of fresh-picked red berries and spice notes while the palate is an energetic blend of red berry, sweet herbs, clove and spice notes. Soft tannins and bright acidity give this wine great balance and lift. An ideal every day red that should be purchased by the case!

2015 Stéphane Aviron Chénas Vieilles Vignes
Review Date: 10-01-2017
A stunning example of what Beaujolais can and should be. Beautifully fruited with racy notes of wet earth, herbs and spices, this delightful red wine can be slightly chilled and enjoyed with a multitude of cuisines. It is light enough to pair with fish courses such as salmon and sea bass, and it can also pair with pork, veal and some lighter beef dishes. Fresh and fruity but in no way insipid, this complex red is incredibly versatile.

2015 Domaine Giraud "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Review Date: 09-25-2017
This wine comes from the small family team of Girauds: Pierre (the patriarch), Marie (daughter and winemaker) and Francois (brother and viticulturist), along with the help of famed wine consultant Philippe Cambie. This wine is elegant, with gorgeous dark berry fruit flavors, exotic spice and floral notes, and fine tannins. With a long, lush finish, this is a great introduction to Domaine Giraud.

The evidence is in the glass...Inglenook is officially back to its glory days of the 40s, 50s & 60s with the 2013 Inglenook Ruther Cabernet Sauvignon. This used to be called the "Cask" Cabernet Sauvignon but now enjoys the Rutherford moniker. The barrels for this wine were culled out of the production of the Iglenook Rubicon the winery's flagship offering. This is an impeccable red, with perfect harmony of tannins, fruit and structure. A gorgeous red, this has the "old-school" Napa Valley cabernet Sauvignon feel that we're always looking for.

Review Date: 09-08-2017
This is my official back porch red! I love a versatile red wine and the 2016 J Bouchon Canto Sur Maule Valley Red is perfect for so many occasions. Great as a picnic red thanks to its easy going red fruit feel, great when it is a bit hot because you can give it a slight chill and enjoy it the same way you would a Beaujolais. A pretty, high-toned red with nice fruit notes and an excellent savory, earthy streak this is a fine value!!

Think only red wines come from Santenay? Guess again. We poured this wine in a consumer tatsing not too long ago and it was a hit. Orchard fruits and stone fruit nuances blend nicely with hints of sandalwood and citrus. Full-bodied and rich without losing its French sensibility this is a great cross-over offering that should please the Francophile as well as California Chardonnay Enthusiast.

This is an outstanding rendition of Kalinda Cabernet Sauvignon! I am really glad Clyde & I waited and tasted and waited and tasted because our patience has truly been rewarded upon tasting this wine once again from bottle. Beautiful aromas of spice, baker's chocolate and crème de cassis spring from the glass while on the palate the wine feels electric with intense red and black cherry flavors as well as milk chocolate and mocha notes. Velvety tannins and a long, supple finish only add to the enjoyment this plush Cabernet Sauvignon provides. If there's a better Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon for under $30 I haven't tasted it yet.

Along with Chateau Margaux this is a candidate for wine of the vintage. Chateau Palmer has excelled in 2015 with a wine that is so pure and elegant that it feels lighter on the palate than it actually is. The depth, layers and complexity of this wine are mind-blowing and it may eclipse the famed 1983 Palmer that is recognized as one of the estate's greatest wines ever. While not cheap, this promises to be one of the greatest Palmer's ever made.

If you do not want to pay the hefty tariff for Chateau Palmer then a pretty fantastic compromise is to buy the 2015 Alter Ego de Palmer at a fraction of the price of Chateau Palmer. Alter Ego has got to be one of the great values in all of Bordeaux! Normally I am not a huge fan of second wines but since the 2012 vintage I have been enamored with this wine. It is spectacular, loaded with pure red berry fruit, beautiful delineation, hints of spice, mineral and a touch of lively green herbs this racy, taut wine is a joy to taste. With impeccable balance and fluidity it is hard to resist it as a barrel sample so I am in a quandary to imagine how wonderful it will be from the bottle.

Malescot St. Exupery is a top five producer in Margaux on an annual basis and the 2015 Malescot St. Exupery is no exception. At $49.99 this is the best value of the 2015 Bordeaux vintage in my opinion. To get a wine of this quality for under $50 is the exact reason to buy Bordeaux En Primeur.
