VINTAGES MAY 2nd 2020 RELEASE
2018 PADDY BORTHWICK SAUVIGNON BLANC WAIRAPARA NEW ZEALAND
$19.95 | VINTAGES#: 361220 | 750 mL bottle | 91pts Wine Orbit
Wonderfully fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows rock melon, Gala apple, feijoa and lemon peel aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is intensely flavoured and vibrant. The wine offers charming fruit intensity backed by bright acidity, finishing long and vibrant.
2000 ROCHE DE BELLENE LATRICIERES-CHAMBERTIN GRAND CRU
$278.00 | VINTAGES#: 14689 | 750 mL bottle | 17pts Jancis Robinson
Latricieres-Chambertin is an 18.2 acre Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin. The vineyard is just south of Chambertin, and it is essentially flat. There are 12 property owners within Latricieres-Chambertin, which has been farmed as a vineyard since the 16th century. Medium intense smudgy ruby. Very light, almost bonbon nose. Rather harsh and chewy. Hint of animal and masses of tannin still.
2014 ROCHE DE BELLENE GEVREY CHAMBERTIN 1ER CRU LES CAZETIERS
$125.00 | VINTAGES#: 12506 | 750 mL bottle | 91pts Robert Parker
The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru les Cazetiers has a voluminous, fruit-forward bouquet with ample redcurrant and cranberry scents, though I find more clarity and terroir-expression offered by the Champeaux at this point. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin – tart red cherry fruit and quite saline in the mouth, leading to a precise but quite persistent finish. This is a “serious” Cazetiers that will need a few months to lighten up. (Reviewed by Neal Martin for Robert Parker; 224, The Wine Advocate)
