2017 Nikolaihof Zwickl Gruner Veltliner Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $30.00

93 Points Wine Spectator

A lovely, well-knit version, with beautiful zesty acidity lending vibrancy and focus as notes of nectarine, chamomile tea and kumquat emerge. Savory mineral, herb and spice elements show midpalate. Delivers great tension and energy.

2014 Emiliana Coyam Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $40.00

94 Points James Suckling

This is a leaner and fresh Coyam with stone, dark berry and hints of currant leaf. Medium to full body, pretty fruit and an intense finish. A blend of Syrah, Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre, Malbec and Petit Verdot. From biodynamically grown grapes.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast

Compact plum and currant aromas are floral at first then more spicy and foxy as this blend led by Syrah and Carmenère airs out. A tough palate flush with tannins deals spicy, herbal plum flavors with ample chocolate and spice from oak. On the finish, this dries out and tastes peppery. Drink through 2022.

91 Points Wine Spectator

Dense and rich-tasting, with plenty of ripe dark plum, cherry and dried blackberry flavors that are loaded with Asian spice notes. Shows green herbal accents on the finish, with dark chocolate details. Syrah, Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2021.

2016 Zind-Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $25.00

92 Points James Suckling

Generous citrus, lychee and jasmine on the nose. Some delicacy. A remarkably crisp and dry gewurztraminer that has a refreshing finish, making it an unusually good food wine for this grape. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.

91 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

From the Herrenwweg area, the intensely citrus colored 2016 Gewurztraminer Turckheim is from vines averaging 47 years old and opens with a very precise and slightly smoky bouquet with lovely spicy Gewurtz notes. Full-bodied yet clean and crisp on the palate, this is an intense, elegant and perfectly balanced wine that fermented down to 3.6 grams of residual sugar, while the alcohol is a moderate 13.6%. It already tasted brilliant but can be kept for a decade.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast

Honeysuckle, wet earth and peach pop up amid intense notes of damask rose. The palate is equally perfumed, covered by a veil of rose perfume that makes this wine seem richer than it actually is. Backbone and concentration comes from zesty citrus and a mere lick of residual sugar. All elements come together in an attractive package.

91 Points Wine Spectator

Cream, rose petal and spice accents waft from the glass of this plushly textured, medium-bodied white, while vivid acidity provides a fine, balancing frame for the palate’s lychee, apricot, tangerine and stony mineral notes. Drink now through 2026.

2015 Zind-Humbrecht Muscat Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $26.00

92 Points James Suckling

A very subtle muscat with light apricots and hints of flowers. Medium to full body, some stones and spicy and bitter peaches. Oily texture but a fresh finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.

90 Points Wine & Spirits

This is a fresh muscat with springtime scents of orange and forsythia. Its flavors deepen to meaty mushroom while the acidity tightens around the wine to keep it structured and upright. A firm, spicy white for cracked crab.

90 Points Wine Spectator

There’s good drive to this dry Muscat, with flavors of blood orange granita, apricot and basil layered with snappy acidity and stony minerality.

2016 Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Blanc Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $20.00

91 Points James Suckling

Plenty of honey, ripe-pear and quince character. Surprisingly full-bodied, considering the wine has only 11.7% alcohol. A lovely, creamy texture and a delicate, dry finish.

91 Points Vinous

Straw-yellow. Lovely fresh aromas and flavors of apple and pear, complicated by hints of white flowers and spicy honey. Finishes long and penetrating. Fresh, lovely and very Pinot Blanc-dominated in its aroma and taste profile, despite only 35% Pinot Blanc in the blend (the balance is made up by 65% Auxerrois). Only 11.5% alcohol, which makes this very easy to drink, but it has sneaky concentration.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Rich hints of spun honey and lemon curd accent the flavors of ripe peach, stone and spice in this well-knit, refreshing and light-bodied white.

2017 Brocard Sainte Claire Chablis Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $22.00

90 Points James Suckling

Some very ripe peaches and mangoes, as well as light aromas of honeysuckle. The palate has a succulent, juicy core of fleshy mangoes and nectarines. Neat and energetic. Drink-now style.

2017 Brocard Sainte Claire Chablis Vieilles Vignes Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $30.00

90 Points Vinous

The 2017 Chablis Sainte Claire Vieilles Vignes, which comes from almost 60-year old vines, has greater precision and mineral expression than the regular bottling. The palate is very tense from the start, taut and linear, an almost Zen-like Chablis with a precise and quite persistent finish. Like the regular cuvée, I would give this a year in bottle.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Floral, apple, peach and smoky notes define this lively white. Balanced, picking up a touch of wet stone on the lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2023.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice

Named after the church next door to the producer’s winery, this wine comes from 70-year-old vines. It has depth, richness and good concentration. Made from organically grown grapes, the wine is bright with yellow fruits and citrus.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Floral, apple, peach and smoky notes define this lively white. Balanced, picking up a touch of wet stone on the lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2023.

2017 Brocard Vau de Vey Premier Cru Chablis Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $38.00

93 Points Vinous

The 2017 Chablis Vau de Vey 1er Cru is a little more reticent on the nose compared to the other Premier Crus at the moment. The palate is well balanced with blackcurrant leaf and a touch of spice on the entry, a fine bead of acidity with a poised, and quite energetic finish, a tang of white pepper that lingers on the aftertaste. Very fine, but it will need two or three years in bottle.

92 Points Wine Enthusiast

The east-facing vineyard gives cool wines with layers of intense acidity that contrast with the honey flavors of this wine. The two elements give a rich wine but one with plenty of freshness as well as spice. Drink from 2021.

90 Points Wine Spectator

This is fleshy, wrapping a lush texture around apple, lemon cake and stone flavors. Intense and long, this needs time to find balance. Drink now through 2024.

2009 Domaine Huet Petillant Reserve Vouvray Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $40.00

93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The golden-yellow colored 2009 Vouvray Pétillant Brut Réserve offers a beautifully pure, deep, rich, intense and refreshing mineral bouquet of perfectly ripe (tropical) fruits and chalky flavors. Full-bodied, highly complex and very long, this is a gorgeous sparkling wine from Vouvray. Dry, firmly structured, mouth-filling and finesse-full, with great elegance and a delicate mousse, the 2009 has a persistently intense and fruity finish with a stimulatingly salinity and grip in the aftertaste. This Réserve should have an excellent aging potential.

2016 Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $45.00

93 Points Wine Spectator

Bright and pure, with delightful pear, green almond and green plum notes laced with a fennel streak, ending with finely beaded acidity and a mineral echo through the finish. Very refined. Drink now through 2027.

Biodynamic Wine Brands Rhone

2016 Domaine Raymond Usseglio Chateauneuf-du-Pape Girard Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $50.00

95 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard is blended exclusively for American importer Peter Weygandt and is bottled unfiltered. It’s about 90% Grenache and delivers a compelling mix of fragrant raspberries and savory, earthy spices. It’s full-bodied and plush, with a long, complex finish that suggests it will age well for a decade or more. It’s powerful and concentrated yet feels fresh and lively.

2017 Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $52.00

A blend of 30% Clairette, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc, 2% Picpoul Blanc and 1% Picardan.

90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

A blend of 30% Clairette, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc, 2% Picpoul Blanc and 1% Picardan, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of floral notes up front, pear and melon on the mid-palate and lime and anise on the finish. It’s a solid offering that won’t disappoint, provided you drink it in its first few years.

2016 Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $53.00

93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Beaurenard has excelled this vintage. The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is no slouch, with ample richness, bold cherry and apricot fruit and attractive hints of dried spices and garrigue. Complex, full-bodied and supple, it finishes long and silky. It’s two-thirds Grenache Noir, with the rest composed of the 17 other permitted grape varieties.

92 Points James Suckling

Tangerine, melon and hints of other tropicals like papaya on the nose. The palate has fresh structure and rich flavors showing poise and balance. Drink now.

2016 Domaine de Beaurenard Cuvee Boisrenard Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $80.00

A blend of 66% Grenache, 12% Mourvèdre and 12% Syrah.

96 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Just like the regular cuvée, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Boisrenard includes all 18 of the appellation’s permitted varieties, although it’s mostly (66%) Grenache Noir. Strawberries and raspberries shine on the nose, followed by a full-bodied palate that’s creamy-silky and lush but also bright, lively and long. It’s a super effort, at what should be a realistic price.

96 Points Wine Spectator

Solidly built, with a sappy core of kirsch, blackberry paste and red licorice flavors tightly coiled together and backed by roasted apple wood, warm stone and tobacco leaf notes through the finish. The beautiful fruit should develop nicely with extended cellaring, as this has serious grip and drive. Best from 2020 through 2040.

94 Points Decanter

Aged in barriques, 10% new, and foudres for 18 months. Restrained aromas of blackberry, menthol and root beer lead into a medium to full-bodied palate with concentrated, inky, juicy fruits coursing through it. Ample fine, ripe tannins and a long finish harbour real energy and freshness; it’s a very harmonious and measured wine. Drinking Window 2020 – 2030

92 Points James Suckling

Good fruit-definition in terms of aromas and flavors here. Fresh, brambly, summer berries with blood-orange and wild-herb threads. The tannins are firm, but polished. Enjoy now or hold.

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Brut Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $33.00

92 Points James Suckling

Bright and attractive florals and hints of strawberries, leading to a palate that delivers pink grapefruit and light nectarines. Fresh, fruit-driven style here. A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. Drink now.

90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The NV Methode Traditionelle Brut flaunts notes of spiced apples, peach blossoms and marzipan with a hint of brioche. It has an excellent intensity of toasty apple and stone fruit flavors in the mouth accented with a great line of vibrant yet balanced acid and small, fine bubbles before finishing long.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

The 100% Pinot Noir Methode Traditionelle Rosé may be even better—and harder to find—but this blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay is no slouch. The aromas are toasty and penetrating, the flavors add melon and citrus notes, and the finish is refreshingly dry, with a dosage of only 7 g/L.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Shows impressive clarity, with crisp lemon, grapefruit and lime zest flavors that are fresh and vibrant. Hints of lemon verbena and pickled ginger linger on the finish. 6,000 cases made.

2016 Quartz Reef Bendigo Single Vineyard Pinot Noir Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $38.00

94 Points Decanter

From Rudi Bauer’s capable hands, this reveals the merest whiff of smoke. The palate is corsetted sumptuousness, while the frame is firm, showing lots of backbone. A lovely synthesis of fruit, structure and texture that channels Bendigo power into finesse. The lasting finish resonates with fruit. Biodynamic.

92 Points James Suckling

This is brought forward into lighter strawberry and boysenberry fruits with a gentle leafy edge and some attractive lightly spicy oak. The palate has a finer thread to it in 2016 with very delicate tannins that carry cherry-berry flavors neat and fresh

91 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The medium to full-bodied 2016 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir is the traditional Quartz Reef bottling, just relabeled to make its origins clearer. It’s a ripe, supple, biodynamic Pinot Noir from one of the warmest sites in Central Otago, made by one of the region’s Jedi masters. Lovely red berry and cherry fruit picks up savory hints of thyme and cedar, then finishes in a swirl of silky tannins.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast

From the warmer subregion of Bendigo, this wine has an approachable and rather pretty nose of potpourri, plush strawberries, cherries, tomato leaf, vanilla and baking spice, with Quartz Reef’s signature hot stones earthiness. The palate is taut and structured with a spine of fine-grained tannins, focused acidity and warm oak notes. This is made to age and barrel influences should settle with time. Drink now–2024.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Smooth and plush, with a velvety background to the pomegranate, cherry and wild thyme notes. Generous and juicy on the finish, where a detail of matcha comes in. Drink now through 2028.

2017 Montinore Pinot Gris Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $20.00

90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinot Gris Estate has an open nose of warm lemon, green apple, pear, wet stone and citrus blossom. Light-bodied, refreshing and crisp with a good core of tree fruit in the mouth, it finishes long and fresh.

2016 King Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Reviews

Suggested Retail Price $30.00

92 Points James Suckling

Wild red fruit and a fresh array of raspberries and cherries on the nose that lead to a fresh and juicy palate, packed with succulent fruit flesh. Nice, pure pinot here.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice

This is a sleek, subtle and savory wine. Tangy black raspberry and black cherry fruit is lifted with vivid, citrus acidity. Barrel aged for up to 10 months in French oak, it’s a fine, early-drinking effort at a favorable price.

90 Points Wine & Spirits

Sturdy and broad, with a stout, caramelly foundation of oak, this takes a day to unfurl. With air, the fruit comes to the fore, the chewy black-plum flavors adorned with scents of redwood shavings and foresty tannins. Decant.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Precise and well-built, showing expressive raspberry, orange tea and spice flavors that finish with refined tannins.
