Saar and Ruwer 2015: Rain in the Nick of Time

There are really two 2015 vintages for German Riesling: the first harvest took place on the heels of early September rain, and the second four to eight weeks later during a chilly but sunny autumn. Both will reward Riesling lovers, especially the latter.

2016 Pierre-Marie Chermette/Vissoux Beaujolais Rosé Les Griottes ($16.00) 90

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.
