2016 Bordeaux: It’s Now or Never, Baby

The 2016 growing season presented château owners with plenty of challenges, but ideal weather at the most critical time of the year made up for the early struggles of the vintage. The best 2016s are deep and intense, yet also pulse with a real sense of energy. For the 2016s to be successful in the market, however, owners will have to be sensible with prices. That’s why for Bordeaux It’s Now or Never, Baby.

2016 Prà Soave Classico Otto ($20.00) 90

2016 Prà Soave Classico Otto, 90 points

Prà’s 2016 Soave Classico Otto is lovely. Fresh, flavorful and also a great value, the 2016 offers up a compelling range of apple and apricot flavors nicely lifted by harmonious acidity and a lingering nuance of buttercups and lilies. (ID)


Cellar Favorites


1973 Krug Vintage & Krug Collection

It is always illuminating to taste the original release of Krug’s Vintage Champagne next to the late release. For this fun, informal tasting, the bottles were covered so as to remove any preconceived notions about the qualities of the two wines, but that turned out to be an unnecessary exercise, as it was plainly evident to all which wine was which.
