Meursault les grands charron and le tesson in late spring of 2017 cover

2016 & 2015 White Burgundy

It was quality over quantity in 2016, as a fraught growing season with sharply reduced production appears to have produced charming, aromatically appealing wines that will give early pleasure. The best 2015s are denser, deeper and more serious but rarely show the austerity of wines from more classic high-acid years.

Cover the unique beauty of deauville trouville in france's normandy region

La Petite Auberge, Trouville, France

Most restaurants in Normandy’s delightful Trouville, a small seaside hamlet characterized by a quiet charm, engage in the preparation of simple and fresh but hardly memorable seafood dishes. Not so at La Petite Auberge.

2014 Soos Creek Wine Cellars Sundance Red Wine ($20.00) 90

2014 Soos Creek Wine Cellars Sundance Red Wine, 90 points

This Cabernet Franc-dominant Bordeaux blend offers noteworthy perfume and pliancy for a producer’s “second wine.” With lovely lift to its cherry, spice and floral aromas; captivating flavors of cherry, currant, licorice, sage and nutmeg; and sweet, spreading tannins, it’s a tasty steal. (ST)

2002 Domaine François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Raveneau’s 2002 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre is gorgeous. Rich, oily and beautifully textured on the palate, the 2002 shows all the depth that is typical of the year.
