PAUL MAS ESTATE VIOGNIER 2016

Nicole Vineyard, IGP Pays d’Oc

TASTING NOTE: Paul Mas is one of the most

exciting producers in the South of France. They

strive to impart their wines with a sense of “luxe

rural”: everyday (or simple) luxury. Under the

stewardship of Jean-Claude Mas, the winery

has become a trailblazer for the quality revo-

lution that has gripped this part of France. Their

2016 Viognier is a great example. Floral and

intensewith ample suggestions of honey, apricot,

peach, pear, citrus and minerality. A balanced

wine that delivers impressively on the quality-

and-value ratio. (Vintages panel, Feb. 2017)

GÉRARD BERTRAND FITOU 2014

AP

This is a blend of Grenache and Carignan.

TASTING NOTE: Concentrated, ripe and

full-bodied, with raspberry torte and cherry

pie flavors filling the core, edged with spice

and mineral notes. Tangy acidity and full,

polished tannins line the hot-stone finish.

Drink now through 2022. Score:

DOMAINE LAFAGE CAYROL VIEILLES

VIGNES CARIGNAN 2014

IGP Côtes Catalanes

TASTING NOTE: ... 100-year-old vines ... gives

up lots of spice and sandalwood charac-

teristics, as well as more black cherry liqueur,

chocolate and dusty, rock-like minerality.

Hedonistic, textured, rounded and downright

sexy, it’s another terrific wine from this estate

that readers should snatch up. It should dish

out tons of pleasure over the coming 4-5

years. Drink Date: 2016-2021. Score:

RIESLING KABINETT FEINHERB 2008

Prädikatswein

TASTING NOTE: ... Cherry blossom and

honeysuckle with mint, oregano, almond and

pistachio oil in the nose set the stage for a

metaphorically cooling performance of utmost

refreshment. Cherry and apricot tinged with

herbs, salt, white pepper, and crushed stone

inform a satisfyingly long finish. I suspect

this will gain in nuance and harmony over the

next several years and be worth following

for a decade ... Score:

PERLAGE PINOT GRIGIO 2016

IGT delle Venezie

TASTING NOTE: Crafted using organic

practices, this is an easy-drinking, fresh Pinot

Grigio with crisp, mouthwatering acidity.

Delicate and refined, with subtle citrus fruit,

pear and a pure mineral underpinning, this is

an amazing value. Enjoy it on its own or with

smoked salmon or lemon chicken. (Vintages

AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE 2015

DOP

TASTING NOTE: Sourced from volcanic soils,

this wine prominently reveals the classic

intensity, firmness and minerality found in the

wines of Aglianico del Vulture. Toasty and rich

with impressive red fruit, plum, herbal and

leather tones along with a perfectly pitched

bitterness mid-palate. A really good, tastywine

– try it with smoked pork, prime rib or a hearty

meaty stew. (Vintages panel, June 2017)
