Hostellerie de Levernois, Beaune, France

The Hostellerie’s Restaurant Gastronomique is a terrific choice for readers who want a more relaxed experience. A spacious room, verdant views and tables set far apart add to a feeling of serenity that is pretty relaxing for this city boy.

2017 Blue Collar Wines by McPrice Myers Syrah Right Hand Man ($20.00) 91

2017 Blue Collar Wines by McPrice Myers Syrah Right Hand Man, 91 points

This super-expressive wine is Syrah through and through, with its spice- and smoke-tinged black and blue fruit, candied licorice and floral qualities, and strong suggestion of cracked pepper. Showing fine definition, supple tannins and a long, spicy finish, it delivers amazing value. (JR)

Recently I encountered a bottle of 1924 Filhot, the oldest example that I have tasted, and it proved that Filhot can create a wonderful, life-affirming, vibrant and downright delicious Sauternes that effortlessly defies time.
