Valle d'Aosta Pinot Nero 2020

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2020 Pinot Nero is such a pretty and finessed varietal expression that mixes alpine herbs with wild strawberries and crushed rocks. It’s elegant with silky textures that usher in masses of lavender-tinged black cherries and spices, as juicy acidity maintains fantastic balance. The 2020 leaves a coating of fruit concentration along with sweet tannins that add a gentle grip, promising a steady evolution. That said, there is no harm in drinking this today.

Franz Weninger

Ponzichter Pinot Noir Zweigelt 2019

Little funky right out of the gate. Bright fruit, pepper, alpine herbs. Really easy to throw back. A fun wine with grapes from Austria and Hungary. Biodynamic with minimal sulphur. Terrific with a chill. — a month ago

39th birthday / Memorial Day party. Swiss SB - so mineral with none of the typical tropical SB notes you expect. — a month ago

Jolie-Laide Wines

Mère Pinot Gris 2021

So complex. Nose is very floral like walking in an alpine field and then there’s a light strawberry. Palate has excellent acidity with strawberries, hint of creaminess, more floral notes, tropical fruit, a bit of vegetable underlying it all. Can’t really put my finger on it. Needed some air and to be closer to room temp to open up. — 11 days ago

Vin de Savoie Apremont Jacquère 2020

Wonderful alpine crisp white, a new favorite tried at Beckon Denver, CO — a month ago

Maison Anselmet

Petite Arvine 2020

This is a seldom encountered grape that makes a delicious wine. At Anselmet they give it a light wood treatment and lees stirring by rotating the barrels. The wine has crisp acidity and flavors of lemon, white peach, pear, wet stone. With 13.5% abv the wine has a surprising ripeness s as well as medium body. Wonderful silky texture and it marries perfectly with Valle d’Aosta’s traditional fontina cheese-based specialties. A bit pricey (but typical of this Alpine region) and well worth it. Delicious — a month ago

Fossil & Fawn

Sunnyside Vineyard Only Always Auxerrois Blend 2020

A “gemischter satz” style field blend of Pinot Auxerrois (46%), Riesling (38%), and Gewurtztraminer (16%). This Austrian/Alsatian inspired blend is aromatic and alpine in character with notes of flinty white peach and salty petrichor. Perhaps a little VA? A neat wine, if not a bit overpriced at $30. — 2 days ago

Les Crêtes

Valle d'Aosta Fumin 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2019 Fumin embodies the soul of alpine wine, with a peppery array of sage, rosemary and mint giving way to rose petals and hints of camphor. It’s finessed yet full of life, cascading citrus-tinged red berries across a core of minerals and vibrant acidity. The 2019 finishes remarkably clean yet perfumed, with a lingering tension of sour berries. What a darling, but it will be best enjoyed served alongside a meal. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022)

Domaine Maurice Schoech

Côtes d'Ammerschwihr Pinot Blanc 2019

Smells like a German wine with alpine flowers and citrus and tree fruit aromas that also come through in the palate with a round body. Alsatian Adventure private tasting. — a month ago
