CROFT Vintage Port 2007
Vintage Port Portugal
Estimate Per Bottle: 120-130

RECENT AND FABULOUS - RP93The 2007 Croft Vintage has a soft, fig and date-scented bouquet that opens up beautifully in the glass, warm and inviting. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, supple tannin, a fine line of acidity and a ripe finish with dark cherries, boysenberry jam and a citric edge lending poise and delineation. There is a nice hint of fieriness on the finish that gives it a little hubris and brio, though not excessively, since that would not be in keeping with Croft’s style.

GRAHAMS Vintage Port 1977
Vintage Port Portugal
Estimate Per Bottle: 200-220

RARE & FABULOUS - 1977 One of the greatest recent vintages  RP93 - Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous.

WARRE'S Vintage Port 1994
Vintage Port Oporto
Estimate Per Bottle: 100-110

INFANT SUPERSTAR - RP94One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-colored wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length. Tasters should take note of the wealth of peppery, licorice-scented and flavored raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Look for it to be ready to drink in 10-12 years, and keep for 30+. This is a profound example of Warre vintage port.

TERROIR AL LIMIT Arbossar Carignan Grenache Syrah 2016
Carignan Grenache Syrah Priorat
Estimate Per Bottle: 180-200

SIMPLY SUPERB - RP96The Cariñena 2016 Arbossar shows very different from the Dits del Terra. This comes from their oldest vineyard, which delivers very low yields, in some parts no more than 300 or 400 grams per plant. 2016 was a warm year, but not as warm as 2017. The idea is to use less and less oak and, in some wines, use only concrete. In fact, Arbossar is one of the wines that will be aged exclusively in concrete. In 2017, they removed the last 500-liter oak barrels and only used oak foudres and concrete. The élevage has also been shortened, and the wine is put in bottle earlier, as sometimes a too-long aging tires and oxidizes the wines. This is a very elegant Cariñena, with floral notes, clean berries, fine minerality, some spices and a very tasty finish. Simply superb.

TERROIR AL LIMIT Les Manyes Grenache 2016
Grenache Priorat
Estimate Per Bottle: 700-750

RP100 - BRAVO - The 2016 Les Manyes is aromatic with tantalizing aromas of wild berries and herbs, flowers, a touch of forest floor and something salty. This has a lighter color and comes from a healthier vineyard that gives slightly higher yields (it was not in good shape); the vineyard is in a high-altitude place where they escape the heat of the Priorat. Of course the soils are completely different—they are limestone instead of slate and have more in common with Montsant than the majority of Priorat. The nose could be a mixture of a great vintage of Château Rayas and a traditional Nebbiolo from Piemonte. It's beautifully textured, with refined, chalky tannins and a medium to full-bodied palate, with no room for sweetness but with the volume of ripe Garnacha, pungent flavors and a very long finish. I just couldn't get myself to spit the wine! This is as far removed from a sweet wine as possible: This is a salty wine, a wine for food, a wine for gastronomy. The nose kept changing in the glass, developing new nuances with time—aromatic, intoxicating and attractive, with a kind of magnetism that made me go back to the glass over and over again. I could smell this for hours... I don't think Priorat gets much better than this! Bravo!

BILLECART SALMON Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart Brut 2002
Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 340-350

CHAMPIONSHIP DE CHAMPAGNE - World Class - RP97The 2002 Brut Cuvée Nicolas François was disgorged in January 2015 with four grams per liter dosage, and it's showing superbly, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet that mingles confit citrus, peach and dried papaya with nuances of iodine, brioche and honeycomb. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a rich and layered core that's underpinned by serious structure and tension, concluding with a long and precise finish. This is one of the finest wines Billecart has released in the last decade, and it is well worth seeking out.

BOLLINGER La Grande Annee Brut 1999
Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 130-140

CHAMPIONSHIP DE CHAMPAGNE - World Class - RP92 - The 1999 La Grande Annee is a refined, elegant wine with pretty, exotic notes of apricots, peaches, honey, flowers, smoke and toasted oak. There is notable clarity and precision, in a style that is generous and approachable. The 1999 La Grande Annee is 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay, of which 82% came from grand cru vineyards while 18% came from premier cru sites spanning a total of 16 villages. The wine was aged in oak and dosage was 7-9 grams. This bottle was disgorged in July, 2007. I also tasted the February, 2008 disgorgement which showed a more opulent, quality that I found utterly sensual and irresistible. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014.

KRUG Vintage Brut 1988
Vintage Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 1100-1150

CHAMPIONSHIP DE CHAMPAGNE - World Class - RP98 - Krug's 1988 Brut has long numbered among my very favorite vintages for this house, with the best bottles flirting with a three-digit score. Offering up complex aromas of apricot, citrus oil, candied peal, toasted brioche and honeycomb, it's full-bodied, concentrated and incisive, with a deep, layered and tightly wound core, racy acids and a searingly chalky finish. If on release the 1988 got less attention than the more immediate, head-turning 1990 and 1989 vintages, with time it is proving itself the most serious of those three consecutive releases.

Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 600-650

CHAMPIONSHIP DE CHAMPAGNE - World Class - RP96 - The profoundly rich 1990 Dom Perignon is a creamy-textured, full styled offering that loses none of its elegance in spite of its flavor authority. It will improve for 5-10 years, and appears capable of surpassing the fabulous 1985 and 1982. It seems obvious that the quality of the 1990 Champagne vintage is going to be remarkable, and the world-wide demand will be unprecedented. The message - buy them now!

MOET & CHANDON Dom Perignon Brut 1996
Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 620-640

CHAMPIONSHIP DE CHAMPAGNE - World Class - RP98 - The brilliant 1996 Dom Perignon, which has largely disappeared from the marketplace, may be the finest young example of DP I have ever tasted. Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 20-25 years, possibly longer. Readers should remember that the 1971 Dom Perignon Rose is still drinking exquisitely. I recently had the 1969 and 1970 Dom Perignons (from magnum), and both were drinking brilliantly. It makes one realize just how long-lived these wines can be. Production is confidential, but there must be hundreds of thousands of cases of Dom Perignon since it available in most of the world’s luxury hotels and restaurants

MOET & CHANDON Dom Perignon Brut 2002
Brut Champagne
Estimate Per Bottle: 350-360

CHAMPIONSHIP DE CHAMPAGNE - World Class - RP96 - The 2002 Dom Perignon is at first intensely floral, with perfumed jasmine that dominates the bouquet. With time in the glass the wine gains richness as the flavors turn decidedly riper and almost tropical. Apricots, passion fruit and peaches emerge from this flashy, opulent Dom Perignon. The wine’s volume makes it approachable today, but readers in search of more complexity will want to cellar this for at least a few years to allow for some of the baby fat to drop off. Geoffroy describes the vintage as very ripe and adds that some of the Chardonnay showed the ill-effects of the hot growing season in the somewhat burned, dehydrated fruit that came in that year. This bottle was disgorged in July, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2032.

FOREVER KEVIN -  JH96 - Hand-picked on a biodynamic flower day; whole bunch-pressed and wild-fermented in French oak and an egg, with a completely spontaneous fermentation before maturation for 7 months in French oak (30% new). It has brightness and life from the natural acidity remaining after the mlf, the fruit flavours drawn from both citrus and stone fruit inputs. Chardonnay.

EVER DEEPER - JH 97 - Exceptional crimson-purple; Julian Langworthy has a rare touch, particularly with cabernet and chardonnay, an unlikely couple outside Margaret River, and even within it when Julian's wines are on show. This has the elegance and symmetry of Bordeaux in good vintages had before they were all pumped up on Parkeresque steroids.

MOSS WOOD MARVELS - 1994 House Score 8/10 - JH94Strong red-purple; much more concentration and depth than the '93, with dark fruits and gently earthy overtones. The palate confirms the impression of the bouquet, with plenty of weight and power to the blackcurrant fruit and tannins. Subtle oak as always; 1994 was a great success for Moss Wood cabernet

The truth lies on the palate where the silkiness of the tannins, and the suppleness of the fruit, promise a wonderful journey ahead; on a final note, the length is quite simply staggering.

The 2017 vintage is responsible for cabernets of incredible poise and layering. This is not a thundering power piece, rather an intricately detailed and mesmerising wine, with fine folds of flavour: bay leaf, raspberry, star anise, sage, hints of fennel, pomegranate and pink peppercorn. This is pure, floral, pretty, and very long. Moss Wood has proven its capability for graceful ageing and this will be no exception.

Having gone to this time, trouble and expense, it is logical to build the wine for future generations to enjoy, and that is certainly the case here, with mega-helpings of high quality cabernet fruit (plus bits and pieces), oak and tannins, and the all-important balance.

Cabernets Waiheke Island
Estimate Per Bottle: 300-350

NZ FIRST GROWTH - Larose 2004 - RP93A Bordeaux blend of predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2004 Larose casts a deep garnet color and gives a hint of bandaid on the nose with good, pure underlying black currant cordial and dried plum notes complimented by hints of bay leaf, cedar and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth with tons of flavour and fine grained tannins, there is just a bit of rusticity to the long, otherwise satisfying finish.

Cabernets Waiheke Island
Estimate Per Bottle: 300-330

NZ FIRST GROWTH - Larose 2005 - RP94 - A Bordeaux blend of predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Larose gives a deep garnet color and has quite a lot of red and black fruit remaining on the complex nose, with spice box and meaty notes plus some dried herbs. The palate is glorious with tons of elegant, youthful fruit in the mouth supported by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and refreshing acid, finishing long and multi-layered.

VALLI HO - "Must have" Cultish NZ Pinot Noir  - 2016 RP92 - The 2016 Waitaki Vineyard Pinot Noir boasts classic Pinot scents of sous-bois and black cherries, while cola and dried spices add to its considerable appeal. It's medium-bodied, silky smooth and so, so easy to drink, with no rough edges but just the right amount of acidity to provide life and length on the finish.

PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO 2014
Barbaresco
Estimate Per Bottle: 90-100

BEAUTIFUL BARBARESCO - RP94  To be released in September, the 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner in texture, but it delivers plenty of beautiful length and endurance instead. It offers crisp tones of cherry fruit with licorice, wet earth and blue flowers. The line of Barbaresco Riserva wines from the various single vineyards will be made in 2014 (and will be released in early 2018).

PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO 2016
Barbaresco
Estimate Per Bottle: 90-100

TIGHT & BEAUTIFUL - RP95The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas.

TENUTA SAN GUIDO Sassicaia 2013
Bolgheri
Estimate Per Bottle: 320-340

SASSICAIA SENSATION - RP97 - I had reviewed this wine just a few months prior and my impression has remained pretty much the same. One difference I did notice at this more recent tasting of the 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is the bouquet. It has shifted to slightly more delicate and finessed aromas of pressed flower and blue violets. You do of course get that solid core of dark fruit and spice that characterizes this famous Tuscan blend. But that extra time in the bottle has awarded wiggle room for profound precision and focused detailing. The wine's complexity emerges slowly with subtle notes of savory spice and tobacco. There is power and depth here, especially in terms of the mouthfeel. As the wine evolves in the glass, it begins to show ethereal tones of road paving, tar and licorice. This Sassicaia should go straight into the cellar.

VIETTI Castiglione 2010
Barolo
Estimate Per Bottle: 140-150

ABSOLUTELY LOVELY - RP94 - The 2010 Barolo Castiglione is absolutely lovely upon first impact. It starts off dense, with notes of tar, dried cherry, and plum then adds layers of bright florals and spicy notes. Mineral shadings and smoked meat also appear as distant highlights. The 2010 vintage in particular coats the palate with a firm but subtle grip. The wine already shows great complexity. Drink: 2016-2026.

E. GUIGAL Chateau d'Ampuis 2007
Cote Rotie
Estimate Per Bottle: 240-250

APPROACHABLE, RICH & SEXY STYLE - RP95 - Showing the vintage’s approachable, rich and sexy style, the 2007 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis gives up ripe black raspberry, cassis, toasted spice, dried violets and cured meats to go with a full-bodied, forward and downright hedonistic style on the palate. About as exuberant and indulgent as Cote Rotie gets, it offers loads of pleasure now, but will evolve gracefully for another decade at least.
