David Ramey, one of California’s proven masters of Chardonnay, has compiled an admirable track record for making rich, complex wines with uncanny staying power, as a recent tasting of his Chardonnays from the Hyde and Ritchie vineyards made clear.

Ristorante Il Centro, Priocca, Piedmont, Italy

One of the things I like most about Il Centro is the menu that offers diners a good dose of the classics, along with more modern dishes that nevertheless remain rooted in tradition and a few whimsical choices...

2015 Yann Chave Crozes-Hermitage Blanc (25.00) 90

2015 Yann Chave Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, 90 points

A textbook northern Rhône white wine from an outstanding vintage, with ripe orange and pear qualities and succulent herb and floral nuances. Pliant and lush, in the style of the year, but lively as well, showing impressive length and resonating citrus fruit character. (JR)

1989 Domenico Clerico Barolo Bricotto Bussia

Domenico Clerico’s Barolo Bricotto Bussia is absolutely gorgeous tonight. Hauntingly beautiful, with plenty of the tertiary nuances Nebbiolo acquires over time, the 1989 is a pure joy to taste and drink.
