The 2014 White Burgundies: What’s Not To Like?

Two thousand fourteen is a modern classic for white Burgundy, having produced concentrated, vibrant wines with uncommon balance, aromatic complexity, pure fruit flavors and compelling saline minerality.

The Harwood Arms is one of my three or four favorite places to eat out in London; actually, its relaxed, comfortable setting, superior food and outstanding wine list makes it one of my favorite restaurants in the world.

2013 Bodegas Volver Single Vineyard La Mancha ($18.00) 91

2013 Bodegas Volver Single Vineyard La Mancha, 91 points

Sourced from Tempranillo vines planted in 1957 and raised in 100% new French oak, this sexy, dark fruit-dominated wine shows outstanding depth as well as vivacity. Decadently enjoyable now, it’ll be even better, and more complex, with another few years of age. (JR)

Yquem 96 (2) copy

1996 Château d’Yquem (Sep 2016)

Although it is not the most famous recent vintage of Château d’Yquem (2001 and 2009 vie for that honor), I have always loved the 1996 and frankly never tire of drinking it.
