Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Brunate Retrospective: 1990-2010

This recent retrospective of Rinaldi Barolo Brunate from magnum going back to 1990 was special for so many reasons, most notably the rarity of the bottles we opened. Gordon Ramsay’s maze in the heart of London was the setting for what turned out to be a truly unforgettable evening.

2016 Pierre-Marie Chermette/Vissoux Beaujolais Rosé Les Griottes, 90 points

This Gamay offers bright aromatics along with ripe tangerine, strawberry, candied rose and succulent herb flavors. Fleshy and dry on the palate, the 2016 finishes long, smooth and broad, with a bracing jolt of juicy acidity extending the finish. (JR)

1975 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Bussia di Monforte Riserva Speciale

Bruno Giacosa’s red label Riservas from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s are, for the most part, such spectacular wines that when you find one that behaves in rather idiosyncratic ways it becomes a cult wine in its own right.
