36 VINTAGES

FRANCE

WHITE WINE

HENRI BOURGEOIS

LA BOURGEOISE SANCERRE

BLANC 2014

AC

TASTING NOTE: From the oldest vines

owned by the producer, this wine is

intense and concentrated. Packed with

citrus and still-bright herbal flavors it

has layers of minerality and perfumed

acidity. It still has its freshness which

is in the process of changing into a rich

maturity. Drink now and until 2024.

Cellar Selection. Score:

93

HECHT & BANNIER BANDOL

ROUGE 2013

AC

TASTING NOTE: This is a wine that

showcases the Mourvèdre grape (80%

of the blend). That gives a wonderful

perfumed wine, bringing out fine tannins

and a rich structure. Aged in wood for

20 months, the wine has a spicy edge to

balance the ripe black-plum flavors. It

is only just ready to drink and will be much

better from 2018. Cellar Selection.

VELTLINER 2015

DAC Weinviertel

TASTING NOTE: Bright green yellow,

silver reflexes. Intensive smell of yellow

tropical fruit underlined with delicate

floaral nuances, a touch of blossom

honey, some orange peel. Juicy, elegant,

finite acid structure, delicate on the finish,

delicate extracts of the wine peach in the

reverberation, mineral in the aftertaste,

good potential. Score:

HORN IM SONNENSCHEIN GG

RIESLING 2015

Qualitätswein

TASTING NOTE: The 2015 Siebeldinger

Im Sonnenschein Ganz Horn Riesling

trocken GG opens with a very clear and

elegant, aromatic and flinty-flavored

bouquet of crushed stones that is almost

Mosel-like in style. Clear, round and

elegant on the palate, this is a very pure,

fresh, finessed and lingeringly salty

Riesling. It is a classic with a perfect

four grams of residual sugar that gives

this seductive juiciness and remarkable

elegance. The finish is almost chalky

in its dustiness and grippy salinity. This

is another great Riesling of the Rebholz

family, and it can compete with the finest

Mittelhaardt Buntsandstein Rieslings

from Deidesheim and Forst. Drink

date: 2018-2035. Score:
