  • Cantina Terlano Pinot Grigio 2020

    £18.99

    “The 2020 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Tradition is luminous and bright with finely tuned aromatic intensity. The bouquet reveals citrus, white peach and crisp apple. This is a zesty and crisp white to pair with specialty finger foods or vegetable tempura. I just love this freshness and the tonic, energetic quality displayed in this well-priced production of 100,000 bottles. Drink: 2021-2023. 91 points

    This is another set of gorgeous wines from Cantina Terlano. There has been interest from readers in bottle weight, and the top-end wines from this estate continue to be bottled in relatively heavy glass.”

  • Cantina Terlano Winkl Sauvignon 2020

    £22.75

    “This is a delightful wine that I happily paired with skinless chicken marinated in cumin, olive oil and lemon juice. The 2020 Alto Adige Terlano Sauvignon Winkl is fresh and tonic with lots of varietal purity and zesty energy. I suggest serving this bottle a few degrees colder than usual. Subtle tones of crushed mineral and sour grapefruit appear on the close. This was a production of about a quarter-million bottles. Drink: 2021-2024. 92 points

  • Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2019

    £21.99

    “Attractive hints of crushed stone, graphite and nettle leaves appear on the nose of Clos Henri’s 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Backed by layers of white grapefruit and riper notions of stone fruit, this medium-bodied wine is a fine effort. The silky, expansive mouthfeel leads into a long, gently textured finish that leaves tasters refreshed and yearning for another sip. After some irregular performances, this property seems to be finding its stride. Drink: 2021-2022. 92 points”

    Dirler-Cade Riesling Spiegel Grand Cru 2014

    £31.75

    “From vines planted in 1977 on the deep but stony soils of the Stein plot, the 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Spiegel opens with a clear, well-defined and elegant nose of crushed stones, herbs and white ripe fruit; but it is also a bit closed two years after the harvest. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, intense and tightly woven Riesling with a pronounced acidity and a pretty coolish, but discreet character at the moment. The finish is intense and concentrated, stimulatingly salty and firm. This is a blue-chip Riesling, a powerful king that is still preparing its regency. Drinking window: 2025-2035. 94 points

    Once more, this 18-hectare domaine in Bergholtz has produced two stunning vintages. The 2015 harvest was very short and went from September 7th to October 1st, respectively to the 13th for the Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives. The wines are rich and opulent and partly sweet. There was no Riesling Grand Cru Kitterlé bottled from the 2015 vintage, because the wine was simply too rich and sweet, so the vat was finally sold in bulk. However, the Kessler from the hot Heisse Wanne plot is an age-worthy, world-class Riesling not just in 2014, but also in 2015. Due to my weakening condition, I couldn’t taste any of the 2015 Gewurztraminers so far, of which five have been produced: the Alsace Gewurztraminer, the two Grands Crus Spiegel and Kitterlé, as well as two Vendanges Tardives Saering and Kessler. I will include the quintet in my second part of this year’s Alsace report that will be published in late spring.

    Jean Dirler’s 2014 Rieslings are just fabulous: ripe, fresh and elegant, full of tension and complexity. Even the drosophila-damaged Muscat and Gewurztraminer crus are – due to strict selections – much more than just respectable in 2014.”

    Domaine de la Borde Cote de Caillot Chardonnay 2018

    £29.99

    “After an extremely challenging 2017 Julien Mareschal was very happy with the 2018 vintage. “A healthy and abundant crop, I’d sign up to have that every year!” he said as I arrived at his functional winery in the village of Pupillin, which is next to his house and around he corner from Pierre Overnoy. He picked early, and the wines are surprisingly fresh. He even compared 2018 with 2016… We tasted some 2018s from barrel, and the whites felt more powerful than the 2016s and felt like they needed a little more time; some of them might stay in barrel for one more year, so I thought it was a bit premature to review them so early. But the Côte de Caillot was again my favorite—serious, mineral and tasty with the limestone soils clearly coming through even at this early stage, rich and more Burgundian.”
