NV Taittinger Brut La Francaise

Champagne, France

Showing class and style, offers stunning richness while exhibiting excellent overall balance. The winery notes, “(this wine) contains a higher proportion of the finer Chardonnay grape than other nonvintage Champagnes, giving elegance and freshness to the wine.” They are absolutely on the money with their self-assessment. Active on the palate, with bright core fruits and zesty citrus and mineral flavors. 93 Pts Wilford Wong, 91 Pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

2018 Chalk Hill Russian River Chardonnay

Sonoma, California

Round, rich and distinctly Chalk Hill. The nose expresses aromas of lemon, orange peel, and a hint of vanilla bean from the oak influence. This wine is balanced and bright with concentrated flavors of creamy lemon custard, poached pear, almond and spice. This Chardonnay is known for its long, rich and elegant finish, and this vintage is no exception.

Lovely softness and finesse to this wine with aromas and flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate and spice. Medium-bodied with integrated tannins and a lovely finish. 92 Pts James Suckling

2014 Castello Banfi Brunello Di Montalcino

Tuscany, Italy

Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose is ethereal with violet, vanilla and hints of licorice. The palate is full, soft, velvety, with traces of spice.

Aromas of black plum, black cherry and earthy, green herbal notes—followed by a plush and juicy delivery with fine tannins and a velvety texture. Densely layered flavors of boysenberry, cassis, and plum—accompanied by rustic, savory herbs, anise and a touch of cocoa.
