Looking Back at the 2005 & 2004 Brunellos

Revisiting the 2005 and 2004 Brunellos is a terrific opportunity to gain further insights on these two very different vintages given that some time has passed since the wines were first released. The best Brunellos from both vintages have plenty to offer, although the finest 2004s are truly superb.

2014 Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Kabinett, 90 points

Aromatically pungent grapefruit marked by its rind lends zest and subtle oiliness to a palate plush in textural richness, yet shot with bracing and thirst-quenching acidity. Hints of floral perfume add allure while an undertone of wet stone nicely sets-off the effusive fruit. (DS)

Taittinger: 1996 & 1995 Comtes de Champagne

Taittinger’s Comtes de Champagne has long been a personal favorite. Among other things, Comtes ages spectacularly well, is relatively easy to find (despite its small production) and is very well priced for the quality relative to its peers.
