First Star


Lone Star Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Pretty bold flavor for a pinot. Less fuzzy on the tongue. Smells great. A touch of smoky heat on the clean finish. Really satisfying, overall. — 14 days ago

Weingut Cantzheim

der Kabinett Riesling 2018

🏅 Rating 91/100 (4,1⭐)

First nose is tight and reserved. With time, aeration and temperature, it opens up with tropical fruits: pineapple. Some herbs. So concentrated on the palate. The residual sugar (45 g/l) nicely integrates with racy acidity of Riesling. Harvested at 86° Oechsle it is then fermented with ambient yeasts to low 9% Alc. Love the style of this Kabinett: elegance and finesse. Accentuated finish. Solar vintage, indeed. Huge potential ahead.

Anna Reimann together with her husband in 2016 acquired an existing winery and 5ha of vineyards. A year later they bought Johann Peter Reinert Estate and expanded to northern Saar vineyards. This is definitely a rising star and the address to watch.

Château Doisy-Daëne

Bordeaux Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

100% Sauvignon. Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of green apples and honeysuckle. Firm acidity leads the medium palate which yields green apple, citrus rind, and a touch of birch. Moderately lingering, slightly stony finish. Sauvignon done Bordeaux style with body and brightness that makes a perfect pair for seafood, roasted poultry, or Asian cuisine. Drink now through 2024. — 2 days ago

Domaine du Pegau

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

A star in the making. Let your bottles nap for a decade. Fruit forward, almost jammy, but the complexity is there, lurking beneath the surface. Undercurrents of garrigue and intrigue. Go get some and test your patience. — 15 days ago
