A Test Of Greatness: 2009 Bordeaux Ten Years On

The Bordeaux 2009s were hailed upon release during a unique primeur campaign, though the crucial test would come when the wines reached 10 years of age. Now it’s time to put them to that test. Two tastings, one sighted and one blind, confirmed magnificent highs...yet no vintage should be beyond criticism.

Located in the pretty, lively town of Alba, La Piola is more than your average Piedmontese trattoria. Impeccably prepared dishes offer something for every palate.

2017 Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat ($25.00) 91

2017 Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat, 91 points

Concentrated yet lively dark berry and candied violet flavors are braced by a core of minerality that lends sharp delineation and lift. Drink it now with a bit of aeration. Alvaro Palacios’ Priorats are some of Spain’s greatest wines. His entry-level bottling consistently over-delivers. (JR)
