    2019 GEORGES DE LATOUR BEAULIEU VINEYARD PRIVATE RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

    "Wow! The aromas to this are really exceptional, with a tangerine edge to the blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil, flowers and wet earth. It changes all the time. So expressive and refined. Full-bodied with great intensity and depth of fruit. The ultra-fine tannins display millions of layers. The texture on the palate is superb and lasts for minutes. This is the new 1974 George de Latour, which was a legend. Real Napa Valley red here. Drinkable now, to understand it, but truly great in five to six years and onwards. Benchmark." 100pts! - James Suckling

    2016 MONT OLIVET CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE

    “Another best to date, the 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape La Cuvee du Papet from Thierry Sabon is pure perfection in a glass. More powerful than the classic cuvee, with killer black raspberries, crushed rocks, garrigue, salty minerality, and iodine, it's deep, full-bodied, concentrated, and sexy, yet has building tannin. It's one of those iron fist in a velvet glove wines and continued to gain depth and richness every time I went back to the glass. Old-school, traditional Chateauneuf-du-Pape doesn’t get any better, and readers should beg, borrow or steal to get a hold of this. Hide bottles for 4-5 years (or more), count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 2-3 decades.” 100 points! - Jeb Dunnuck
