Barbaresco: Worlds Apart

I found much to admire in the 2014 and 2013 Barbarescos I tasted during my most recent visit to the region this past August.

But far too often, the gap between the top estates and the rest is simply too wide for a region with the potential to make truly world-class wines.

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.
