Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “It is always our most anticipated rose of the year and we are so excited to have tasted this bottle this afternoon on this warm 90 degree New York day. Once again the Pibarnon rosé is about 65% Mourvèdre (saignée), with the remainder free-run Cinsault. Unlike most Bandol producers, Eric de Saint-Victor prefers not to use Grenache, which he said would add too much fruit and alcohol to this classic old-world rosé. This another mineral-driven rosé from soils rich with pebbly limestone over blue clay that is a classic, dry, more masculine and savory interpretation of its appellation. What we would say is that the 2020 is a more pronounced expression than past vintages. There is an exuberant nose of ripe fruit that you can smell from across the room. On the palate you will find explosive notes of strawberry, tangerine, nectarine, lemon pith, rose petal, petrol, minerality and refreshing acidity on the palate. The wine finishes dry with herbaceous undertones. You can taste the salty sea air in the glass that derives from the vineyard’s hilltop position overlooking the Mediterranean. With air and time, this tongue staining wine gains in weight with its crowd-pleasing, glycerin texture (more to come with time). In fact, we always recommend enjoying this wine as it warms up in the glass. When we spoke to Mr. de Saint-Victor he recommended pairing it with the seafood delicacies of the region, particularly rouget or sea urchin – but we always say it does well with good old conversation with family and friends. In 2021 this is the rosé that we want to pour and make up for a year of missed time together! A favorite year after year, this is a serious rosé not to be missed for the season. And know this, the best is yet to come from this youthful expression…buy plenty.”

Sunny stone fruits, sappy orchard fruits, and vibrant lemon zest dance against a backdrop of smoky minerals, crushed flower petals, buttered brioche, almond paste and exotic spices in this caressing, energetic Champagne Brut Réserve. Fine, elegant perlage tickles the cheeks as this wine gathers power, moving from succulent richness to chalky energy. This balanced Champagne marries its open-knit generosity with almost kinetic energy, offering a drinking experience that’s food-friendly and expansive. A blend of mostly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with 20% Pinot Meunier, this Champagne derives from 60 different crus with a focus on Oger (for opulence), Ambonnay (for structure), and Verneuil, for texture. Individual crus ferment in stainless steel, and the wines are racked to separate the lees and to undergo malolactic fermentation; each non-vintage cuvée contains at least 40% reserve wine that averages ten years of age, and after assembling the blend, the Champagne ages for about five years in the estate’s 2,000-year-old chalk cellars before disgorgement. more info

Deeply mineral-laden, the ’10 Vigna d’la Roul wraps its succulent fruit around an iron fist, and then complements them with a mélange of rain-spattered wildflowers, licorice, underbrush, earth, and cigar wrapper. The tannins are imposing, but given enough time, this wine will purr like a gentle beast. Valentino's first single-vineyard Barolo and the most elegant of his Barolos, Vigna d'la Roul debuted with the 1974 vintage. Deriving from a chalky and sandy Monforte d’Alba vineyard, this wine is named for a big oak tree in the middle of the estate. It enjoys temperature-controlled fermentation, and then malolactic fermentation and aging in barriques, where it stays for two years; it ages for a year in bottle before release. Just over 900 cases made. more info

Bright cherries and berries, buttered brioche, baking spices, and vanilla cavort in the nose of Roger Coulon’s fine Brut Réserve de l'Hommée; the wine’s precise palate echoes these notes, adding citrus and orchard fruits, along with a penetrating minerality. Perfect, fine perlage transmits texture and a bright skein of acidity propels this elegant Champagne as it builds to a balanced, complex, and mineral-laden finish. This wine, a blend of Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay that derives from the estate’s old-vine vineyards in Vrigny and Pargny, gets its name from the traditional term for the vineyard work a person could do in a single day. Tradition dictates the creation of this wine; it ferments with only natural yeasts and ages for at least five years before disgorgement. more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “This is one of those wines where the color alone is worth the price of admission, you can stare into it and quite literally see Sangiovese Grosso purity at its finest. More importantly, it is the most complete expression we have tasted from the 2016 vintage. Yes, it is showing the upright and classic nature of vintage, but with a little air-time the ripe fruit gains weight and fills the glass. There is a richness to accompany the firmness of the house and vintage for what is a deep, sophisticated Brunello. You can expect nuances of bright cherry, black cherry, plum, citrus peel, cinnamon, cedar, a touch of underbrush and minerality. I was simply awesome to taste these side-by-side with the sibling single vineyard expression. The Normale is more finessed than the La Casaccia, that is more robust and chewy. This is another top recommendation from the must-by vintage.” more info

2015 saw a remarkable, ripe vintage that ended in lush, rich wines with both keen, fresh acidity and high alcohol--Canalicchio di Sopra’s ’15 Brunello embodies its banner vintage with verve, intensity, and depth. Juicy black cherries and sumptuous blackberries dance against a savory backdrop of warm earth, cedar, smoky minerals, and wild herbs, all offset by subtle wildflowers and sweet baking spices. This entrancing Brunello unspools with a creamy, rich mouthfeel as it reveals layer after layer of flavors that are supported on a framework of fine-grained tannins, vibrant acidity, and elegant minerality. The spicy finish lingers in the mouth for minutes! A blend deriving from the estate’s high altitude vineyards, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled vats, and the wine ages for 36 months in barrels, followed by a year in bottle before release. Canalicchio Brunello consistently offers a tremendous price-to-quality ratio, and the 2015 bottling is an outstanding evocation of its banner vintage! more info
