2016 This is a full-bodied, no-holds-barred wine, packed with dense black fruit. Tannins are still present in the powerful structure while just leaving room for enough acidity to give a shot of freshness. Drink from 2021. ROGER VOSS
A full expression of quality and elegance of Sangiovese Grosso. A vine system of low-growing vines that are cordon spur pruned as is the tradition in Montalcino. Aging the wine in large barrels to enhance its characteristics without distorting its taste.
The secret to obtaining a traditional Brunello with an intense ruby red color and variety and spicy aromas, with excellent freshness and fine intensity. In the mouth, it is enveloping and silky with sensations of softness that enhance its breadth. With an elegant, balanced structure, and soft, never intrusive tannins. The long finish recalls the spicy notes perceived on the nose.

2017 Côtes du Roussillon ~ France
The Pierre de La Fabregue 2017 offering from Chateau Rombeau hails from the Cotes du Roussillon- a premier grape-growing region within the Languedoc-Roussillon in France.
Their blend consists predominantly of Grenache, which brings notes of red cherry and earth, while a splash of Syrah and Mourvedre enhance the palate with an additional dark fruitiness akin to blackberry and bramble. Pair this medium-bodied gem with southern-French inspired dishes such as ratatouille.
Grenache 70%, Mourvedre 15%, Syrah 15%
“Soft and Blueberry..Very Nice ..Cheap”
There is perhaps no more hated industry in market history than tobacco. But since 1926, no industry has delivered better total returns, and on a risk-adjusted basis, tobacco is #2.
Over the past 33 years, Altria and British American have delivered 18% and 14% CAGR total returns, respectively, “smoking” the S&P 500 while offering generous, recession-resistant and exponentially growing dividends.
Both companies have wide moat businesses, with proven track records of adapting to an endless stream of “existential” crises, which is why I recently bought both for my retirement portfolio.
From today’s valuations, 20% historically undervalued for MO and 25% for BTI, these defensive, high-yield blue chips can realistically deliver 12% to 20% CAGR and 19% to 25% CAGR total returns over the next five years, respectively.
White Burgundy is synonymous with Chardonnay, with Montagny, in particular, offering savvy wine lovers some of the best values in the region without skimping on quality. In Domaine Feuillat-Juillot’s 2017 ‘Cuvée Les Grappes d’Or,’ Chard shows off its fresh and elegant side thanks to grapes picked exclusively from premier cru vineyards – i.e. the best in the appellation. Lively aromas of Golden Delicious apple, lemon balm, flinty minerality, and acacia flowers meld with subtle notes of toast from a deft use of oak, making this French bottling an absolute treat!
Pouilly-Fuisse White Burgundy
Pouilly-Fuissé is the appellation for the finest white wines of southern Burgundy’s Maconnaisdistrict. They are produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in the communes of Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson.
The Pouilly-Fuissé appellation officially dates back to September 1936, although the boundaries were drawn up as early as December 1922. It currently covers around 800 hectares (2000 acres) of hillside vineyards, planted on limestone-rich clay soils over a granitic base. The 500m (1640ft) limestone escarpment known as the Roche de Solutré is located at the heart of the appellation’s vine-growing area and towers over the vineyards below.
The Pouilly Fuissé title on a wine label may be completed by the name of the specific vineyard where the grapes were grown. The most commonly cited are La Roche, Les Vignes Blanches, Aux Chailloux and Les Crays. There is no Premier Cru system within the appellation, so quality is indicated through the reputations of producers and their vineyards.
The typical Pouilly-Fuissé wine is full-bodied, ripe and relatively elegant, with the best examples rivaling the finer wines of the Cote de Beaune.

Pinot Noir from Chambolle-Musigny, Cote de Nuits, Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France
Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Musigny Vielles Vignes Grand Cru from de Vogüé has slightly brighter and more vivacious fruit than J-F Mugnier, and in fact, the two wines seem to go in two different trajectories in the glass, this blossoming and the other becoming more occluded. De Vogüé’s Musigny is unashamedly floral in style, very elegant and yet delineated. There is a noticeable estuary scents, mudflats and seaweed, that begin to permeate the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, wonderful acidity and succinctly integrated new oak that is barely tangible. It is intense but elegant, long and tender in the mouth. RP 98+
Deep, bright red. Brilliantly complex, focused nose offers scents of redcurrant, blueberry, crushed stone, spices, red licorice, menthol and botanical herbs. Boasts extraordinary sweetness and depth to its chewy, sappy red and dark fruit flavors. Really bulletproof fruit here! Spreads out on the back half to saturate every square millimeter of the palate, finishing with penetrating berry fruit and salty minerality. Remarkably long and tactile. V 96+

93 Points – James Suckling! “Layered and rich with blueberry, black cherry and mushroom character. Full body, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Bright and structured.”
Brunello di Montalcino is made 100% from Sangiovese. Traditionally, the wine goes through an extended maceration period where color and flavor are extracted from the skins. Following fermentation the wine is then aged in oak.Traditionally, the wines are aged 3 years or more “in botte“—large Slavonian oak casks that impart little oak flavor and generally produce more austere wines. Some winemakers will use small Frenchbarrique which impart a more pronounced vanilla oak flavor. There is a middle ground where the wine is aged in small barrique for a short time and then spends a longer sojourn in the traditional botte.[
