Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Color- deep purple black. Nose - luscious dark plum fruit, perfume mocha-vanilla, and eucalyptus fill the senses lingering with currants and earth gravel rock. Taste is soft medium bodied with an initial raspberry-plum fruit flavor followed quickly by notes of coffee tobacco and pepper with a dry medium finish. An approachable drinking wine and should drink nicely throughout the evening. — 9 days ago

Dessimis Pinot Grigio 2018

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2018 Pinot Grigio Dessimis is a pleasure to taste and also to look at with its beautiful orange, almost-amber color. Notes of dried apricot and peach take on a yellow citrus twang, with hints of almond paste adding an alluring richness. It’s textural and soothing on the senses without a hard edge in sight; instead coasting effortlessly across the palate with ripe orchard fruits, young mango and a hint of exotic spice. An inner sweetness lingers with an air of brown butter and hazelnut. The Dessimis is matured all in stainless steel and takes its color from spending ten months on the fine lees.

La Froscà Soave Classico Garganega 2016

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2016 Soave Classico La Froscà is rich and alluring with notes of dried peach, sweet white flowers and honeyed almonds. It displays wonderful clarity and poise while stimulating the senses with bright acids and minerals before settling on ripe orchard fruits. A twang of sour citrus and apricot resonates throughout the long and almost salty finish. I tasted the 2016 over the course of two days and it only got better each time I revisited it. The La Froscà matures in a combination of 80% steel tanks and 20% barriques, yet there’s not a hint of wood here. (Eric Guido, Vinous February 2021)

Chardonnay 2018

Delectable Wine
9.4

As is usually the case, the Chardonnay Vie di Romans really stands out amongst its peers, especially in the 2018 vintage. There’s an undeniable richness to the bouquet as this gorgeous expression slowly blossoms in the glass. Pretty white and yellow florals, lemon confit, hints of custard, peach and sweet melon all come forward over time. It’s silky and pliant in texture, with formidable weight, yet balanced by brisk acids, as ripe citrus-tinged fruits and minerals excite the senses. A subtle hint of sweet exotic spice and almond lingers on the long and dramatic finish. The 2018 is charming today, yet also full of potential. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021)

Punta Aquila Salento Primitivo 2013

Wonderful primitivo from Salento region. The nose is amazing and fills the senses with berries. Pared well with pasta and holds its own with a steak. 2013 vintage in February 2021. Very smooth with a taste of berries that lingers. — 11 days ago

Jesera Collio Pinot Grigio 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2019 Pinot Grigio Jesera has a pretty pink color with copper hues strewn throughout. It’s wonderfully fresh and lifted, showing white strawberry, apple, a dusting of confectioners’ sugar and hints of candied ginger. Silky textures flesh out across the senses, weightier than expected yet perfectly balanced by brisk acids, taking on a more savory persona, as notes of peach and melon give way to zesty exotic spices. There’s an almost-Asian peppery note here coupled with the wine’s inner florals that excites the senses. The Jesera really makes the case for skin-contact Pinot Grigio and will appeal to a broad range of palates. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021)
