Champagne: 2021 New Releases

After a brutal year in 2020 in which sales slumped dramatically, Champagne has come back with a vengeance. Demand and enthusiasm are high, no doubt buoyed by a return to more or less ‘normal’ conditions, whatever that means these days. Readers will find an extraordinary range of Champagnes in the market that span the entire stylistic spectrum ranging from the glitziest grande marque new releases to small-production artisan bottlings.

This recent Saturday lunch at TORC was a nice break from my tastings in Napa Valley. It was great to see an old friend and get back to a more normal rhythm of actually being able spend time with people again.

2020 G.D. Vajra Barbera d'Alba

2020 G.D. Vajra Barbera d'Alba, 90 points

Vajra's 2020 Barbera d'Alba is juicy, vibrant and absolutely delicious. Racy red/purplish berry fruit, spice, rose petal and mint are all kicked up in a tasty, impeccable Barbera that delivers the goods, big time. (AG)

1989 Gaja Barbaresco

It is still one of the greatest tastings I have ever done. One chilly, late fall afternoon about a dozen years ago, Angelo and Gaia Gaja opened all of their 1989s and 1990s for an article I was working on, Piedmont’s Glorious 1989 and 1990 Vintages Revisited.
