2020 Spring Wines to Taste

(97) Chateau Puech-Haut Tête de Belier 2017 (France)

Produced from four different white varieties, this blend has all the components of a world-class wine. Wonderful notes of tree fruit, with a hint of alluring spice. Very nice weight and texture on the palate, with a bright, focused and lingering finish. ($44)

(95) Domaine St. Romain Jongieux (France)

A lovely, complex wine, at a great price, which can allow you to introduce your customers to a wine region and grape variety they may not know. They may not be familiar with the jacquère grape variety, or the Savoie region in eastern France. But, once they taste this wine — with its bright and fresh focused fruit — they’ll be thanking you for the new discovery. ($16)

(95) Yealands Estate S1 Single Block Sauvignon Blanc 2018 (New Zealand)

The first smell to the first taste gives you an indication of how special this sauvignon blanc is. A bright pop of grass and grapefruit greet your tongue with an absolute explosion of freshness. The acidity is energetic, yet controlled, and the combination of amazing fruit gives you one of the most complete start-to-finish experiences you will ever have with a sauvignon blanc. ($29.99)

(95) Terre di Chieti Vellodoro Pecorino 2018 (Italy)

Pecorino may be the name of a cheese, but it really shines as a grape variety. Wonderful focus, bright and clean. The nose and palate both reflect its complexity and quality. Match it with a wide range of dishes: it is versatile and delicious. ($16.99)

(94) Marqués de Cáceres Brut Cava (Spain)

Produced from Macabeo, one of Spain’s most famous indigenous grape varieties, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at lower temperatures to preserve the grape’s elegance and character. A great wine to enjoy with a meal, or just to celebrate life. ($14.99)
