Jonathan Cristaldi, Tasting Panel, July 2024

“Candied green apple; lime blossom; and ripe, juicy peach resonate on the palate of this light-to medium-bodied white, framed by chalky minerals and scintillating acidity.”

Jonathan Cristaldi, Tasting Panel, July 2024

“From vineyards near the town of Langenlois, this wine shows fragrant notes of yellow apple, flinty minerals, and vanilla. The fleshy midpalate is balanced by zippy acidity and notes of melon, apricot, and peach.”

Wilfred Wong, Wilfred Wong, May 2024

2021 M. Chapoutier Les Meysonniers Rouge

Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, May 2024

“As usual, this bottling shows more substance than the la Petite Ruche. The 2021 Crozes Hermitage les Meysonniers delivers peppery spice and ripe cherries and blueberries in a medium-bodied format. Silky, pure and elegant, it finishes long, with a slightly tart edge.”

2022 M. Chapoutier La Bernardine Blanc

Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, May 2024

“The 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape la Bernardine Blanc—tasted as a tank sample in the summer of 2023—boasts attractive aromas of clover honey, fresh limes, white peaches and crushed stone. Only medium to full-bodied, I'd prefer to see a bit more richness in this wine, but it's clean, crisp and nicely balanced. This vintage is about 80% Clairette from Croix de Bois and 20% Grenache Blanc from the other (western) side of the appellation, all fermented and matured in demi-muids, 15% new.”

2021 Crasto Altitude 430

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, May 2024

“The 1,400 foot-altitude of this vineyard of Tinta Francisca and Touriga Nacional has given the wine a pale ruby color. It also shows in the cool character of the aroma of intense crushed cherries. The wine is juicy with raspberry and peppered strawberry flavors. Drink from 2025. Suitable for vegans.”

2022 M. Chapoutier La Bernardine Blanc

Stuart Pigott, James Suckling, April 2024

““Full, expressive nose of candied citrus, dried pear and vanilla that pulls you into this very structured, full-bodied white Chateauneuf, which has energetic acidity for this hot and dry vintage. The positive, fine tannins really help to drive this cuvee with clairette from the extreme east of the appellation and grenache blanc from the extreme west. This was vinified in a mix of demi-muid and foudre oak casks. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.””

2021 Laurenz V. Charming Grüner Veltliner

Kristen Bieler, Wine Spectator, February 2024

“A medium-bodied white marked by white cherry, lemon oil and chamomile flavors. Boasts bittersweet lemon-lime acidity, which offsets the richness of custard and white mocha elements through the well-hewn finish. Drink now. 400 cases imported.”

2020 Tinto Pesquera Crianza

Zekun Shuai, James Suckling, September 2023

“Creamy oak spices and chocolate that have integrated with the dark cherry and blackberry fruit. Chewy on the full-bodied palate with tight wood tannins that need a few years to integrate. That said, there is enough intensity and weight to hold this structure. Better from 2025.”

2018 Condado de Haza Alenza Gran Reserva

Zekun Shuai, James Suckling, September 2023

“Plenty of pine cone, hazelnut and sweet vanilla spices to the minty blackberries and red fruit. Juicy and tight on the palate with a medium to full body and a tightly wound, lengthy finish. Vanilla and coconut at the end. A lot of wood here, but it will come around in a few years after the wood tannins integrate more. Try in 2025.”

2018 Tinto Pesquera Millenium Gran Reserva

Zekun Shuai, James Suckling, September 2023

“Complex nose with plenty of sweet spices, pine cones, vanilla and black walnuts to the blackberries and black mushrooms. A hint of bergamot. Tight and creamy on the palate. Don’t be put off by the wood tannins if you open it and drink it while it is young. The fine-grained tannins mesh nicely with the full-bodied palate.”

2018 Tinto Pesquera Janus Gran Reserva

Zekun Shuai, James Suckling, September 2023

“Showing plenty of hazelnuts, pine cones, sweet spices and vanilla characters. There is also a streak of minerality alongside the deep and fresh blackberries with a hint of tar. Tons of dusty tannins on the full-bodied palate with juicy berries, before an extremely long and creamy finish with vanilla, blueberries and orange peel at the end. Not a subtle wine, but it flatters with its exuberance and it has a lot to offer. Drink from 2025.”

2018 Condado de Haza 20 Aldeas

Mike DeSimone, Wine Enthusiast, September 2023

“This garnet-colored wine offers aromas of dried cranberry, freshly picked red cherry and dried Mediterranean herbs. It is soft on entry, with pronounced flavors of red and black plums, brown baking spices and dark chocolate. It is medium-bodied with soft tannins, and there is a touch of dried savory herbs in the persistent finish. — Mike DeSimone”

2018 Dehesa La Granja

Mike DeSimone, September 2023

“An intoxicating nose of black cherry, butterscotch and baking spice leads the way for flavors of blackberry, Luxardo cherry, vanilla bean, clove and violet. Velvety tannins coat the tongue and gums and drift off toward a satisfying finish. ”
