Mugneret-Gibourg’s Clos Vougeot 1984 - 2015

An extensive tasting of their top Grand Cru this spring demonstrated that sisters Marie-Christine and Marie-Andrée Mugneret have quietly and methodically taken their famous father’s estate to greater heights through steady improvements in the vineyards and in the winery.

Zoko Moko, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, France

I looked forward to Zoko Moko more than any other restaurant during my time in the Pays Basque. Many had sung its praises, and eating out in Saint-Jean-de-Luz is always a pleasure.

Vinous Favorites

2017 J. Wilkes Chardonnay ($22.00) 91

2017 J. Wilkes Chardonnay, 91 points

Lemon peel, tangerine, flowers and chamomile all grace the exquisite, creamy, vivid 2017 Chardonnay from J. Wilkes. Beautifully layered yet also light on its feet, with tons of Santa Maria character, the 2017 is a winner. Best of all, this absolutely delicious Chardonnay is a remarkable value. (AG)
