Veneto: The Land of Opportunity

Veneto is undergoing a remarkable transformation. Amarone is achieving a newfound balance, Valpolicella is seeking more refinement, and Soave increasingly emphasizes terroir-driven, expressive wines. In addition, the interior areas boast a number of under-the-radar gems, making Veneto a region to get genuinely excited about.

Lower Your Sails (Or Breeches): Beychevelle 1929-2019

Apart from interesting backstories, Beychevelle has passed between some of the most powerful families in France over nearly a millennium. This article stems from a vertical tasting of 25 vintages marking the quarter-century of Philippe Blanc’s tenure, plus a handful of notes for wines back to 1929.

Emilia-Romagna: Opposite Ends of the Spectrum

While Lambrusco is still king in Emilia, over in Romagna, a few wineries are showing the heights Sangiovese can reach if treated properly. The best part is that these lesser-known wines continue to offer great value in the market.

Not Classed, but Classy: Haut-Bergeron 1961-2019

Sauternes articles tend to focus on major châteaux. But in this piece, I shine the spotlight on a less familiar name, one whose wines punch above their weight: Haut-Bergeron.

Vinous Table: Ci Siamo, New York, NY

Ci Siamo, a recent addition from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, has fast become one of my go-to spots in New York City for delicious, hearty food and fabulous wine. I can’t say enough good things about Ci Siamo. Two recent dinners have been nothing short of superb.

Vinous Table: Kitchen W8, London, UK

Kitchen W8 is well worth seeking out. I enjoyed the local, relaxed ambiance, perhaps things moving at a slightly slower pace here than elsewhere in the city. Prices are more reasonable than many, especially for lunch and early evening, and the quality of cooking is very assured and unpretentious.

Vinous Table: Côte, Guildford, UK

It had been a thoroughly satisfying meal that delivered above my modest expectations. Not everyone yearns to dine at high-class restaurants or can pay for it. Many contentedly live their life within limited culinary horizons. Côte caters to them and does it well. The fact that guests can BYOB is an added bonus. Having teetered on the brink of survival a couple of years ago, it’s important that chains like these are thriving. I will be back.

2021 'A Vita Il Rosso

The 2021 Il Rosso, a co-fermented blend of Gaglioppo and Magliocco, punches well above its weight. Dusty roses, blackberries and cedar form its spicy bouquet. Pure yet youthfully tense, it displays cherry-berry fruits and juicy acidity, finishing with with a vivid cranberry core. (EG)

90 points ($14)

2021 Nine Hats Riesling

The 2021 Riesling displays spring flowers, crushed green apples and ginger spice. Soft textures and ripe tropical citrus tones appear on the palate, while kiwi and candied lime nuances linger. At 1.27 grams of residual sugar per liter, it maintains a lovely balance of sweetness and energy. (EG)

91 points ($22)

2019 Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon wafts up with a pretty bouquet, showing rosy florals, sage and crushed raspberries. It soothes the senses with the silkiest textures as a potent, red fruit wave washes across the palate. An herbal flourish lingers as this finishes peppery and lightly structured. (EG)

Cellar Favorite: 2019 Ao Yun

Ao Yun presently spans 27 hectares under vine, all organically farmed, planted in four villages perched at more than 2,000 meters in elevation above the Mekong River in China’s Yunnan province. The first 14 hectares were planted on own-rooted vines by the Chinese Government as part of a plan to stem the exodus of the local population from the countryside. LVMH planted a further 13 hectares using a variety of rootstocks to form the property as it is today.

Cellar Favorite: 1986 Penfolds Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28

Back a few years ago, I was tasting a lot of Penfolds and was fortunate enough to participate in a few epic verticals of this iconic Australian producer. Sadly, commitments towards Bordeaux and Burgundy mean I taste bottles less frequently; however, I was reminded of their unerring longevity at a recent BYO at the Harwood Arms to celebrate my birthday.

Cellar Favorite: 2019 Niepoort Batuta and Redoma

I am a big fan of Dirk Niepoort’s fortified and non-fortified wines. Earlier this year, I tasted his latest releases. Two of them will offer pleasure in the near term but are also worthy of cellaring.
